Keystone Alpine

Any Alpine owners here? What are your impressions of your rig? What do like? And maybe more important are your dislikes! I like the look of these 5'ver and as of this moment it's the one I will buy. Thats a couple of years still down the road and things change, new models, different brand upgrades...

There are some things that I wish they had. Carriage Cameo has a great tubular steel undercarriage chassis, frame-less windows, and Bigfoot auto levelers and Forest River Cedar Creek also has frame-less windows and a window-less entry door.
Also wish it had a top of the line roof like most expensive class A's (it's a lot of money now, and with some those request I may have priced myself out )

All in all we just like how the 3450 and the 3500 look, and there is give and take in every unit we looked at!
Just interested in what people have to say, who already own a Alpine.

Keystone is a good company and provides good support. I think most 5th wheels have the rubber roof...with a 12 year guarantee.

Had 2 Keystones and never again. My repair man found a leak, then found out the slide cover track had never been caulked. Cost me 9000. Wholesale value 11000. Was able to sell as is 2000. Had to strap the slide in before it could be moved. Keystone sucks Jack

Interesting the take on the same manufacturer by different owners. Jackattack had a terrible experience with Keystone...mine was just the opposite. Sure we had some problems, but Keystone was very responsive and fixed everything under warranty...no hassles at all. Even arranged to send me a part that I could fix myself, after diagnosing my problem over the phone...also sent a postage paid envelope to return the old part. All without charge.

I will never buy another Keystone product. We have an '08 Challenger and I've had nothing but problems with it. Leaks, both water and hydro, loose fittings, bad tires (Goodyear)(which may not be their problem but why did they put these on?), electric, switches, breakers, the list goes on and on. We do love the floor plan but that's not enough.
