36 FDDS measurement please

Can anyone with a later version of a 36FDDS give me a measurement from the front cap/bumper to the rear axle centerline? If it matters, I'm asking for purposes of a 2008 model.

I've been on the assembly of Alpine documents.....what a great resource you have built! I see there's only a brochure for 2007. Was 2008 the same?

Thank you.

Jimco,
I'll take at stab at this. Can't directly answer your question but the wheelbase on the 2007 and the 2008 are the same. Also WRV worked hard to have the weight distribution such that 40% of the weight was on the front axel and 60% on the rear. Don't know if this is relevant or not. It would be helpful if we knew what you wanted this measurement for.

Thanks Jeff. All I want the measurement for is to see where such an Alpine would rest in the parking spot of our current coach. For this purpose I suppose any late model 36 would work for measuring.

If we were to do this I'd have to hope and pray the Alpine will fit in my favorite state beach camping spot.

Thanks again.

Reality for a 36fdds:
Bumper to bumper =37' 5"
For Mirrors ad ~ 11"
For rear ladder add ~ 7"
Note: the mirrors also add to your actual width.
So just figure it is actually a 38' coach.
Our 36mdds is a perfect size for us, hope the one you are looking at works out for you, Regards, Matt

Thank you Matt. What I really need is the dimension from the front bumper to the rear axle centerline. Any chance you can get that for me?

~27' 2". Remember to keep the extra foot or so for the mirrors for whatever you are working on. Good Luck, Matt

I got 26ft 10" on my 08, 3" less than Matt is reporting. But that could be measurement slop, I had to use two 16ft tapes. Or it could be change by coupla inches in design. Maybe I got shorted a coupla inches, and Matt's is bigger than mine.

There probably is some small difference due to '05 & '08 and my "Limited" vs an Apex (yours is an Apex; isn't it Mike? -- Memory sucks at 72!)
