Engineer Mike, I am sure you picked up on the note from RJV1210 in reference to the Amtech Corp.This is their website http://www.amtechcorp.com. If you look through the site you will see 4 or 5 pictures of Alpines.
My thought is RJV1210 has made a pretty important discovery.

A check on their site has a customer list and WRV is listed!

Great find!

This is definitely very good information for us and we need to take this a few steps more. The last thing I want is for anyone to think that I am negative about any of this search for suppliers. From my experience in the fiberglass manufacturing field, the problem we face is that the molds would normally be owned by WRV and Amtech will not be able to make any parts to sell to anyone else. It is my thinking that we need one person or more that lives in the area to keep an eye on what happens with WRV. If someone buys the company to keep making coaches we should be fine. In a worst case scenario, if everything is auctioned off then we need to know where the molds go. If someone like Amtech, buys them, they will probably plan on making parts for resale. My concern here is, the molds will not necessarily be of high value to anyone. There might not be much demand for these parts, most of us don't damage our coaches very often. As they are of high value to us, we would want to make sure that they are not just junked.

If WRV's assets went up to auction, it would be in the owners best interest to be able to buy some of the assets. We would be interested in things like the molds, engineering information, service and purchasing notes, etc. I am not sure how this could be done, but am sure that we have some owners out there that can come up with some good ideas.

Quite frankly this is very easily done. Especially from an outsider's position. Obviously if someone in their own backyard starts getting excited about these forms then prices and red flags will go sky high. Would very well be done by a straw boss with little interest.
