Alpine Motorhome Product Line

Did any other company take over and are presently supporting the Alpine Motorhomes?

If so, who please?

The short answer to your question is no one took it over. The answer to the second part of your question is; the people on this site do a great job of taking care of everyone else.

We are entirely on our own. However, I have found that it is alot like buying a house. You wouldn't call the builder that built your house just because you have a pipe leaking. You either fix it yourself, or you call a local professional. Most everything is just an RV system and can be fixed like any other RV. The specialized stuff.......well us Alpine folks have a secret weapon. EM ! (Engineer Mike)

Actually the real secret weapon is the human memory (remembering where I left that Big Sweaty Wad of Money).

Gotta say, EM's comment is both funny AND true. Thing is, I think you would be fooling yourself to think any other manufacturer's coach is going to need less TLC (and cash). They are all boats on wheels...

Alpines have a lot of good things going for them, and like any other thing some not so good things too! If you do proper maintenance on them, use them regularly and keep them covered in storage when not used, they are about as good as most of the other ones in our price range.

Now, I am partial to the Prevost but then I am also partial to millions of dollars too, neither of which I will ever have. So it's keep this one going as long as I'm able too.

One thing I wish is we could get are the original design drawings from Monamoy, or whomever has them, especially when one of us is in an accident and some prefabrication needs to take place. Those prints would come in real handy then.
