I was pokin around the other owner's forum and found the alpines being compared against the Foretravels. In a good way I might add. It's reassuring that after all the issues I've and many other people have had , that we are being compared against one of the best. I have a 34' and enjoy it very much. My only complaint is that it gets kinda crowded with 2 children and 3 Labs. Sleeping is ongoing issue. Bunkbeds would be nice.

On that note, I'll chime in with a few things.

First, from a newbie (both to diesel pushers and this forum) perspective I'm thrilled that this forum exists specifically for Alpine owners. It's been an incredible help! We used to own a Winnebago class A and this Alpine is superior in every way but it's reassuring to know that people in this forum have "been there, done that" when issues pop up and are willing to share their wisdom.

Second, Even though we did alot of research before we bought our Alpine and felt this brand was the best for our needs, it still impresses me with the overall quality of build. This is a solid rig from a design and materials standpoint; engine, generator, slide, etc. Not perfect, mind you, but sturdy and that is what is important to me when it's all said and done. If something is quality built then repairing or maintaining it is easier, more worthwhile and enjoyable. Upgrading and updating a well-built unit is better then buying new in my book.

Anyways, as I'm starting to losing my breath here, I've gone through this motorhome front to back and even though I don't know everything there is to know about it, I do know one thing: I'm a happy Alpine owner.

(I have stepped off the soapbox now)

Brian,
I couldn't have said it better, you hit the nail on the head. We just need to figure out how to accomidate sleeping arrangements for a 9 yr old boy and a 13yr old girl in our 34'er.

William,

When our kids were young and we were traveling around in a van conversion, we had a tent for the kids to sleep outside. They LOVED it! Of course, nowadays there are a lot of campgrounds that won't let you put up a tent at your site, but it's something to think about.

Is it feasible to have a booth dinette that would convert to a bed??

Alternatively, you could hang hammocks from the ceiling! HA!!

Come join us in ACA & SoCal! We'd love to have you!!
