I looked your new unit up online. Very, very nice and like new. Funny thing, I had looked up used Alpines for sale on RVTrader.com just last Friday morning. I saw that unit advertised and looked at all of the pictures. Nice air ride chassis too!

That's pretty long for LUVR Boy to own a coach! But we do know that he'll gut it and remodel it and then try to flash the engine to 500 hp, so you're probably dead on for that prediction.

Ah, no!
He didn't take me for a ride! I've read enough of his posts to know it's what ever MH he happens to own at the time, is the fastest, most powerful, best riding MH ever built !!

Chuckle...You forgot quietest. He may have just found his "best" MH.

But, we need to start a thread on the pros and cons of removing the full-width mudflap on the rear of that thing, especially if he's going to go off-roading with it!

Your right !

The old ' Hear a pin drop from the front seats', climbing a 9% grade @ 5000rpm !

I no longer have the full width rear flap on mine, due to installing a Hydralift, and after about 7000mi of towing, see no rock chips on front of towed.
Although, I do generally try to stick to paved roads !

Wow, found it. Looks sweet. No DEF and it's barely broken in.

Most of the Keys shoreline is mangrove covered coral.

I couldn't resist.
Been down there 15+ times and from what someone mentioned I thought they stated RV on the beach... Not RV at a state park which has a beach that close. When I was at Bahia Honda last there were several DP's there.

You got one heck of a deal on a simply great coach! I'm a bit jealous! I knew that full-width mudflap wouldn't last long. Have fun-I hope you keep it longer than six months though!
