We dropped into the service facility to pick up som parts today, and discovered that there was a fire in the manufacturing building. Apparently an Apex caught fire and possibly 3 additional coaches were damaged. I don't know what state of conmpletion the coaches were in.

The manufacturing is currrently shut down, we noticed mostly everything had been pulled out of the building into the parking area.

Mike Parker told us the repair facility cannot get parts, so they are affected as well.

Yes, this is true...most Alpine Coach parts were warehoused in the manufacturing facility which had the fire. Until the building is cleaned up and we find out what parts survived in servicable condition we are at somewhat of a standstill parts-wise.

Owners with service appointments scheduled for the upcoming weeks will be contacted via phone shortly to determine whether or not you should still come to Union Gap.

If you ordered a part at homecoming or over the phone recently, please call me to ascertain your order's status.

Thanks for your patience...we'll be back to business as usual as quickly as possible!
