cjames:

Welcome to our forum. Looks like an '05 34FDDS?

The registry shows your coach was first owned by Greg and Lynn Lippincott of Bishop, CA, though I'm not sure if they are/were a member of this forum.

Roger Ball - We also live in Vancouver, WA, we own a 2007 40MDTS Apex. Let get together for coffee and talk over common things about these coaches. We have owned ours since May of 08. Send me a PM message with contact info if you want to hook up.
Assuming the S/N's run consecutively, then yours is newer than ours.

Ron & Jean:

Welcome to our forum! You'll have several weeks worth of information to look through here, about your new coach. I know you will be very happy with it.

If you are in need of quick information, just do a search and you're sure to find it. Just about everything that can happen has happened to someone here.

Also consider joining the Alpine Coach Association (Alpine Coach Association). There are plenty of technical pages and manufacturer information for the various parts and systems. Not to mention, they put on a good rally.

Have you found any receipts with the original owner info?

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.

Allan and Lisa:

Welcome to the forum. I've added you to the list. Do you happen to have any information on previous owners, receipts, etc., or are you original buyers?

Thanks for helping me flesh out the list.
