From the information on the link provided it sure looks like a diesel powered coach to me. I've heard they're very nice coaches.

Are you sure it's a diesel? How much are they asking for it.

Looks like a very nice coach. $140k seems high. I'm sure you plan on dealing on that price. I'm guessing it was $300k new. $140K is probably low retail. Hope you get a few bucks off that. None the less a sweet coach.

I noticed one of their dealers is McMahon's RV. Don't know if it's the same McMahon's that has been discussed in this thread or not, might want to read the thread. McMahon's RV Won't pay off my Trade-in

YUP--its an Alpine diesel. Market is depressed [me too sometimes] so and 06 might go as low as $120k these days, maybe less--make an offer. If you could get the VIN off the coach, our forum has a good and growing VIN list. Perhaps someone in S. Cal will recognize this particular coach....good luck...For the most part we Alpiners love our coaches and the owners travel group are great folks--check out the Alpine Coach Association website. Like all coaches, each model year of Alpine had its own unique issues--check out this forum for owner input on the 06s. Going on 6 years old, tires, batteries, and coolant radiator for this year group could be issues.

You know what stands out for me on that coach listed on Ebay was the mileage (~8600). The previous owner may have been "living" in it and not traveling much and as Old Scout points out that its age alone dictates that several maintenance issues apply but that's an excellent "Buy Now" price assuming an "excellent" condition.

SteveW,

We have a 2006 MDDS in the same Cinnabark exterior color, slightly different interior color, with a number of more options. For example, we have dishwasher, Advantium Oven, Travel'r satellite dish, etc. Had our share of initial problems but got most of those cleared up and love the coach. We have 52,000 miles on ours and getting ready to put another 9,000 on it in the next 3 months. They are truly great machines with a loyal owner's group and a great web site here to follow them or answer questions.

If you have any questions on this coach, from somebody that owns a near duplicate, PM me and I'll give you my current phone number and you can call me.

Also, it says it has a residential refer but it also has a furnace. Don't think those two came together. We have a furnace but a propane/gas combo refer because it sits above the furnace. From the pictures it looks to me like it has a propane/gas Dometic refer like we have.

We have an 07, and have both a furnace and a residential refrigerator, as did our last 2 Alpines...so not an unusual combination. We are just antiquated...not ordering hydro hot!
