High Miles on alpine

I would like to know what some alpines have for high miles and how they are now with the use. When I was looking for the alpine all people wanted to talk about was the low low miles. To me low use is as hard on then as high use.

Unless you are talking about serious high miles, I would not be very concerned about the running gear. I would really look over the use on the house portion of the coach.

Approaching 90,000 miles on a 2003 40' MDTS--no major issues with the chassis. Have had minor issues with electronics and appliances but nothing much outside the expected....

Mine has had some really low miles. At Christmas I had it at 282 feet below sea level. It survived pretty well, though it was a bit cold in Death Valley. Heater worked good, chassis ran like a dream, didn't see any signs of seawater intrusion. I'd advise an Alpine with high or low mileage.
