Many clubs of our type track individual units, especially things in limited production (like ours) or a limited history (like ours) or self helping associations (like ours). Boats, special cars, boutique RV's, etc.

WRV tracked their customers the same way. When I purchased mine used, they updated their files when they found out about the sale. The list they maintained had lots of information about the build. That list was allegedly given to ACA, though no one seems to know where it is (or didn't respond to my last inquiry).

There may be some folks that feel the information is too private to share, I suppose. Others mention (last thread on this) that there were too many to track. Be we have to start somewhere, and I have.

I have information on about 100 coaches of an estimated 1400 produced. I put them into a table for filling in as we go. It has the VIN, Model, Engine, Owner, City & State and the avatar for current and past owners.

Maybe we can "Sticky" this and as people contribute, I'll update it.

I'll also cut out the non-existent VINs with whatever information we can gather up. Meanwhile, hopefully someone can find the WRV list and we can use it to start building and updating the list. We will need to include destroyed units as well.

Hopefully some of you would be interested. It looks like there are 387 IRV2 members currently with Alpine, Avalanche or Apex coaches. Lots of former owners, too.

3rd owner of Alpine Coach, as of Dec 2012

Previous owners were Mr. & Mrs. Mark Richey, Thousand Oaks, CA area

Lovingly cared for coach has been making memories for us for past 22k miles logged so far. Look forward to enjoying this coach for many more years. Thank you members for keeping this forum alive and well.

Dave,

I just want to let you know how much I appreciate you maintaining this list of owners. I hope Takepride is doing well but am concerned that we haven't heard from him in a very long time.

I know, it has been over 3 years since Milt posted here. He was very helpful, he even sent me a switch I needed.

I am going to bring ownership to a discussion at DRR in January, if something happens to me I want whoever takes it over to have the source files and not have to recreate it like I did. Thank God I had a program that did most of the work, it was still hours of tweaking and touching up things that did not come over right. I now have it in MS Excel so it should be easy to handle.

I posted earlier, but do not find my submission in this thread, so again:

74378, 2001 Alpine, 38FDDS, 350 Cummins, bought May 2016 from prior owner, Ed Cupstid, Vidalia, LA. Understand he had only owned it for about 6 months having bought it as temporary living space while nursing brother-in-law in his final days. He indicated he had bought it out of Ohio. Now has brand new tires all around, overall excellent condition.

Ron and Cindy Idom, Baton Rouge, LA - high and dry during recent floods, others in the storage facility where we retrieved ours from before the flood took water above the dash. One transporter picking up a flooded M/H at the storage lot a few days ago indicated they had picked up over 500 M/Hs since the flood, planned for crushing, thus not sure if other WRVs will disappear.

Suggestion: This could be a wonderful resource for getting local WRV owners connected, e.g. publish a list sorted by state. Also beneficial to that effort if everyone included either an email address or phone, etc. to enable contact. Perhaps also include any existing club affiliation?

Also, there are a few Alpines listed on sites that part out RVs, they likely would provide the vins for inclusion on the list to help eliminate blank spaces. Cause of death may provide some caution signals for current owners e.g. engine fire, wreck, flood, etc.

Ron, thank you for your suggestions, please be sure to bring them up at the ACA meeting at DRR in January, we will be discussing how we want to handle the list going forward.

Just so you (and everyone else) knows, this list is an Excel Spreadsheet, it is not a database, so it gets clumsy as we add more data. It was started by Milt Chambers from information gathered from this forum. I took over earlier this year when no one had been able to reach Milt for several months. I went through each post to this forum from post #1 to be sure they were all included. There are some entries that did not correlate to a post, they are still shown, but with no date shown in the "Last Update" column. By virtue of this list being posted on this forum it is open to the public and as such many people do not want their personal information (email, phone, addresses, etc.) distributed that way. Since I have taken it over I only include information that has either been historically on the list (entered by Milt), or is sent via the forum or PM to me, and I only reference the IRV2 User Name, that way you can be sure ONLY the information you want to post is shown.
