Jim, I don't know if you are aware of it, but we had a 2006 Apex for exactly one year and were very happy to trade it for a 2001 Country Coach. My comment on this thread was directed at the fact that almost everything on the Alpine Coach was either installed backwards or was not tightened when it was installed.
Glad you like yours, and glad I got rid of mine.
