Having Coach Service Work Done at Freightliner in Gaffney
We traveled to the Freightliner Customer Service Center in Gaffney, SC to have some service done on the coach. They can do anything on the chassis since they actually built it right down the road in the Freightliner factory.
We decided to take a very interesting plant tour at the Freightliner chassis factory. They build RV chassis as well as school bus and delivery van chassis in this location. We watched as the chassis emerged from raw steel to a full chassis as the large Diesel, transmission and all the components were added. At the end of the line, the engine was started and the chassis driven away.
Of course, Orinda was ready for lunch, so we drove into nearby Spartanburg to the Beacon Drive in of Drive-ins, Diners, and Dives TV fame!
