Never owned one, but when I was shopping in 1994 the alpha gold was on top of my list. Why? Heavier than needed tires, wheels an axles, storage, quality of construction ,ect. It had more luxury than I needed and the price was higher than what I bought. My 27sl Alpenlite has much the same construction and I still love it. My rig is worth $10,000.00. I have a neighbor that has one the same year and he loves it. The exterior is probably dull and that will shine like new with a poli-glo application. If there is no major water damage or leaking roof, I would jump on it quick.

Had a 97 alfa ideal 29rl with 2 sides, liked it enough to get an 07 alfa gold 30rl with 2 slides. We love it and are fulltiming in it. As oldbeek said, if no major water damage or leaking roof/windows, they are a good unit and the price is very reasonable depending on condition. If you have any specific questions, PM me and I will be happy to answer any questions that I can.

desertratt,
I did a search on yahoo for 94 alfa gold 32rl and the closest that I came was a 98 on Mohave.craigslist.org > for sale > rvs-by owner It has pictures and although it won't be exact, it will give you a similar floorplan, and at least you will have an idea what you are going to look at.

What model is it? If you go to Google and click on Images and search for '94 alfa gold 32rl' you will see all kinds of pictures, floor plans, etc. If it is a different model, substitute model numbers...

looked at the alpha today...

Hi,
Well i looked at the alfa today and overall in good condition. No leaks roof was in good condition. It has a fiberglass ribbed sides to it and are some stress cracks in some places. Anyone had any experience with repairing them?
It also has an inverter with 4 batteries which i am sure i will need to replace all of them. Has the typical sticker fading etc but i think i can spruce it up. Oh and tires will need tires it has michelains on it and suggestions on tires they are 245/75/16. Oh and we settled on 3200.00. So i am fairly reasonable and get to try this out and can go from there. I have a cummins 2001 2500 and it is setup with hitch. Appreciate everyone's input.
