New Member-Possible New Coach
We are looking at a 1998 36' Alpine with 70,000 miles on the clock. Have never owned anything diesel or a coach so "large" and complicated.
Would appreciate advice on any issues/problems to look out for on this model and year.
I expect to have a professional pre-purchase inspection in early Dec.
Any recommendations for a service facility in Southern California that is familiar with these coaches?
The seller is the second owner and has owned the coach most of its life which has been spent in So Cal.
I have not seen service records yet but it has been serviced by the same facility for many years. I will be talking to the service rep tomorrow. Any specific questions for him?
The coach is very clean inside and out and appears to have been very well maintained.
I have seen many older coaches (mostly classic GMC's) over the years that were very nice cosmetically but were mechanical disasters.
There are very few of these coaches on the market in my size and price range so not much to compare to. I am in no hurry nor am I committed to this particular coach.
All suggestions and or leads to other available Alpines will be appreciated.
