Pros: You get a great deal for your money. QUALITY
Cons: Not enough dealers. WRV needs better web pages for the Alpine.
We love our Alpine Coach. It seems to be a secret of a coach though because you don't see alot of them. Maybe it is when you see an Alpine, you don't want anything else and they don't need alot of repair because they are quality and dealers won't have the repair income.
We are around many other brands of diesel pushers, and there just isn't any comparison to the Alpine. The quality in the interior is supreme. The woodwork is thick and the finish is perfect. The tile, carpet, furniture and just everything is quality. Western RV uses the best so it's made to last. You can tell in every part of the coach that they take pride in the workmanship.
What really sets this Motorhome apart also from anything else on the market is its chassis. It is called the Peak Chassis and it is the best driving machine around. I am a 115 lb. woman and when I can honestly say that when I drive this unit, it drives like my Honda van. The control is perfect. It doesn't feel like it is driving you. If you didn't know you were driving a 36ft. motorhome, you would think you were driving a mini van. We drove many motorhomes before we bought the Alpine. I was not wanting to buy one until I drove the Alpine. I thought if I had to drive at some point, I couldn't feel comfortable with the others. Then we found the Alpine and was so pleasantly surprised that it drove like a dream!!!
The mechanics are made to last and for easier repair if it is needed. My husband loves this machine. The coach makes sense when it comes to the mechanics. It is really made to be trouble free and convenient.
I really like how the kitchen is large and yet you have room everywhere else also. Great design. Friends who have the Discovery's and Beavers, still like our Alpine better. Classy, quality, drive ablity, dependability, sturdy, perfect!!!
