I have seen a lot of them and know people who have them. MY impression---they seem to have packed a lot in for the price. Basement entertainment packages, matching dish ware in some models stuff like that.
Also with an ALPHA you will not be any different than us National owners. The chasis, running gear and electrical,propane system, heater, TV's, furnace, water heater, fridge etc; are all common products with parts available.
I do not hear complaints about ALPHAS---but then I am not out asjking for comment either----mostly people say they like their rig.
Body parts may be a different issue---so you may want to find out what other ALPHA folks think----there may be an "elephant burial ground for ALPHA body parts" like there is for National.
Why don't you google and see if you can find an ALPHA club and see what they say?
If I were in the market for a MH I do not think I would run away from an ALPHA----just try to pick the best deal overall is what I think I would do. I would think you can get a very good price on one.
I do all my own stunts
