I almost fell out of my chair when they showed a 2006 Alpine on HGTV's review of 2006 RVs! I think that is the first national program where I've seen an Alpine - - looked beautiful, but then we all already know that.

Oh shoot! I missed that!

I'd been told about the program, but I just assumed it was like some other programs I'd already seen.

Well maybe I can catch a rerun.

Which color was it? We live in a 2006 "Meadowlands".

It was a brown motif, 40 footer IIRC. The program will probably rerun. It was called RV 2006.
They made the point that "Alpine is the only brand that makes both the chassis and the (house)" which isn't true (CC "Dynamax"), and that Aplines are known for their ride.
I shot an email to someone on another forum I thought I knew from my Trek days, who signed as now driving a 98 DP ("some other brand"). It was Gordo as I thought, and he envies our ride; drove a friend's 99 Alpine & said it was great compared to his.

You won't have to watch all of the program - the Class As are in the first part. The rest of the program (after the Alpine) really goes down hill. The host (if you could call him that) was irritating beyond belief - I doubt he'd been shaving more than 3 days and obviously didn't have a clue about RVs.
