I traded a 2006 Alpine Apex on a 2001 Country Coach Affinity at Guaranty RV in Junction City, Oregon a couple of months ago. At that time I said I would update, on this forum, how the deal went.

Guaranty bent over backwards to make this a happy experience for us. Every issue on the Affinity was taken care of, without any hassles. I will highly recommend Guaranty as a reputable dealer in the future.

My most sincere thanks to all of the wonderful people at Guaranty.

As a current Alpine owner, I can only tell you that we are extremely happy and driving a coach that is equal to none. I hope you will enjoy your Country Coach, but I'm sure you will miss some of the helpful folks on the Alpine forum. All coaches have their quirks unfortunately, but all in all...it's a GREAT experience.

Safe travels ahead!!!!

Ross, Thanks, I just read your comment about the brakes and I know what you are talking about. More than once I had that awful feeling that the Alpine Coach was not going to get stopped in the required amount of space.

Having owned coaches previously to the Alpine, that had real air brakes, I am glad to be back in a coach that has them again.

Big Jimbo,

We second your opinion about brakes. We, as you probably read, traded our '06 Alpine for an Allegro Bus. Among many other things, we definitely like the brakes better, too. We spent a month in our coach recently, and were elated to have essentially a trouble free trip. We never got to take one single trip in the Alpine without serious problems that interferred with our livability in the coach.

Glad you are enjoying your new coach.

Bev and Bud

Bev and Bud, Thanks for your response.. Supposedly, Alpine Coach has the shortese stopping distance, but I do not agree.

As stated, my Alpine scared me more than once.
