Hi everyone. Well, we did a whole month trip, nothing broke, nothing blew off. We feel we have gotten thur the "Shake Down".

We ran into another Alpine Owner in LA, Bearnie, and he was helpful on other camp grounds.

Eager to meet more of you, plan to head to California at the end of April. Anything going on there we need to attend.

Love our Alpine and the freedom of retirment.
Lana and John

What an encouraging post!

I can't wait until we are through our "shakedown". Pretty nervous right now though....

A&J,
Fret not. Hundreds of thousands have done this before you. WRV has a good reputation for taking care of warranty stuff, and seems to have a better'n average rate on not needing so much warranty stuff. Keep a cool head & make up checklists of concerns so you are confident everything gets covered. And be the first to post a photo of John taking out the trash thru the new-for-06 hatch! Mike

Thanks Mike!

Yes, we would not have ordered an Alpine if we weren't convinced that they stand behind their product. This forum helped make that clear as did numerous discussions with factory people. John had long lists of issues he picked up from this forum and they had addressed every single one of them in a satisfactory way. We were impressed with our main rep who was totally up to speed on all the issues.

But we just know there are gonna be some "new coach" glitches so we are just trying to be as prepared as possible - it's in our nature (see my signature below).

And I do look forward to the day when all systems have been well exercised and fixed as needed and we can embark on our fulltime travel far with confidence.

EngineerAudrey (I really do have an engineering degree - so does John! A dangerous combination - two geeks in a bus! )
