I have been scouring the forum trying to match up VIN numbers to models, names, avatars and locations. Mostly I was doing so to give it to the ACA for their use, possibly on the website. It would also give the ownership history of an individual coach, so future owners could ask pertinent questions. It is also darn interesting.

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.

Takepride,

We owned 72127 until about May of this year, at which time it was traded-in on a 2007 Phoenix Cruiser.
I have no idea who bought it but do know it was sold by the Dealerhip.

Bob:

Interestingly, Steve and Richard traded their 2006 Apex for a Phoenix Cruiser. They must be pretty nice.
