An Alpine in a Alpine type setting. It was a rough winter.
Somehow I got the other pic in there, near Logan Utah.

Tom, there are only two Alpines painted like ours...with the 06/07 graphics in blue. The Swans did it first with their 40ft mid-door triple slide...since we love blue, we took photos of theirs to guide WRV in painting ours the same.

I don't think there are many out there like yours, either...don't think I've seen even one. Love your snowy pic!!

Gail- Sammy must have cruise control on, or she'd need to have her paws on the wheel at all times.

Here's us, on the road north thru Weed, CA.:

Sammi just loves to drive, that's cause our Alpines are so great on the road! She always uses cruise control to get the best fuel mileage...

Sure wish we were on our way thru Weed, too, as it would be much cooler than here! It'll be another month before we'll escape and head north, that's about as long as we can deal with the 100+ weather without a break.

These coaches were designed for cold. Extra insulation, good windows, etc. The same reasons they work well in the heat, too.


My pictures are only a week and 30 miles apart. Of course they are also about 7000 feet apart in altitude.

I love camping in both types of weather. We have spent Christmas in Death Valley and the Grand Canyon, both freezing. I've also boondocked in the desert during freak heat waves. I at least attempt to camp season-appropriate for the most part, but don't worry about temps if others are insistent about a particular destination.

The highest temps were 123 in Las Vegas and the coldest was 10 on the rim of the Grand Canyon. No problems with either. We were able to keep the inside temps at 80 and 70, respectively.
