The Freightliner Facility in Gaffney, SC
After a nice time at Orinda's mother's, I drove up to Gaffney, SC to the Freightliner Service facility. While not a huge operation (they do not build chassis here), it is still quite impressive. Apparently, all they do here is to provide RV service. There is a very nice waiting area and yes, they are pet friendly -- when I walked in, there were several dogs, a cage with birds, and a cat accompanying their owners.
We will be "worked in" for our maintenance and they expect to get us taken care of in a couple days -- good deal!
In the meantime, we are camped behind the Frieghtliner building where they have a nice parking area with 50 amp service, as well as a water/dump facility available. There are about 20 spaces available and perhaps 50% were used.
Finally, we spied a Frieghtliner chassis behind the shop that is displayed at RV shows. It is interesting to see the chassis without the RV on top and lets you appreciate the engineering that goes on.
