Hi Guys,
Anybody know the status of the WRV dissolution? Has anyone bought the inventory? How can we track who has what?
Any suggestions?
This forum ROCKS!

I went to the auction preview and participated in the on-line auction at WRV last week and can say that almost everything was sold at the auction. There really were not a lot of spare parts of value to older Alpines; most of the inventory was for coaches in current or recent production, and not major volumes of that inventory. WRV was trying to run on a lean inventory system with not a lot of spare parts.

It appeared to me that most was sold in combined lots to buyers that were in one form or other in the RV business or RV supply business. Many of the lots for sale were tools or other items used in the manufacture of the coaches and trailers.

I would expect the parts that can't be used in other manufacturer's RVs will find their way to us in one form or another, like the recent post on this forum by an individual wanting to sell parts purchased at the auction. It may take a while for those who bought the parts to sort out exactly what they bought (much of it was not well marked; you had to know what you were looking at)and find a way to get it to us.

Perhaps a service organization for our coaches will arise from this and the parts may find their way to that organization. But I think that organization, if it comes together, will have to obtain most of its parts from the companies that made the parts for WRV, like MagicMetals, who made the cargo bay doors and other lower body panels.

Those are just my opinions, and I certainly don't know what will happen, but I wouldn't look for a lot of parts available from the WRV inventory that sold at auction; just isolated pieces for certain coaches.
