Keystone Alpine

The Keystone Alpine is one of the fifth wheels that we are looking at and I was wondering if anyone has experienced any problems with a 2013 are later with needing a lot of warranty work and having a problem with Keystone standing behind there warranty. I read several reviews on the 2010 Alpine and they were not good.

Montana seems to be a big seller-twin to Alpine. You can get a lemon whatever you buy. Keystone builds a lot of trailers.

A lot of times when lots of warranty work is needed, it's the dealer. Finding a good dealer is more valuable to me.

I would suggest that you do a PDI first before buying the camper; telling the dealer that the sale of the camper is contingent on the PDI. I did this with my Cougar when we bought the camper in 2010 from the dealer and they had no problem with what I wanted.

Be prepared to spend about three hours doing the inspection process making sure everything works and fits to your satisfaction. I did find a couple of small issue when doing my PDI that was fixed right then and there.

I am extremely satisfied with my Cougar and the dealer that I purchased the unit from. The secret being you need to do your homework before leaving the selling dealer insuring everything is the way you want it.

Thanks for the information, I have been lucky with the last three trailers that I've owned and I can contribute it to some of that to luck and my research. I have had three Forest Rivers TT and been very satisfied with them. My wife and I have been told by several people that once we buy a 5ver we will ever go back to a TT so we just want to get it right.

Dealer is vital

My dealer went out of business. When I wanted help from Keystone they gave me zip.

I had a decent unit, Larado but it was my last Keystone Product. Jim
