Keystone Alpine Owners

How many Alpine owners are on here? What are your opinions of them (Good or Bad). Anything to watch out for?

We take possession of our 3500RE in late May (our first 5er)...WOOHOO!!! Doing a 6 week road trip starting mid July to our lake lot on Huron then continuing on to the East coast ... P.E.I. Will return to the Stampede city via the USA.

Hello to Crazy Canucks, I was just wondering if you are still enjoying your Alpine? Now that you have had it for a while and done some travelling is it still all it was when you purchased your 5'er? I am looking to by a new unit but have some fears of the Keystone.

I purchased an Alpine 3600RS in February of this year and I have had very few shake down problems. It is much nicer than the Thor Colorado that I replaced. The Keystone customer service was very helpful and were the best that I have dealt with in the 10 years that we had been camping, and the 3 other campers that I bought new! The water controls for winterizing the camper were perfect with water heater bypass and tank bypass valves clearly marked. Keystone took great pains to put in enough lights, and the standard heat pump unit installed as the main AC unit keeps the coach comfortable down to about 30 degrees outside. The Automatic setting on the thermostat allows it to change over to the Gas Furnace when the Heat pump can no longer keep up. There are many features on the Alpine units like the Hydraulic lift legs and the Hydraulic slides that run off of the same pump. Look at the features and see the upgrades that they build in as standard on these unit. Feel free to pm me any questions.

Just bought the new 3495 FL model and love it. Spent a week in it and didn't want to go home. The front living model is just amazing with the full size shower making it comfortable to live in.

We purchased an Alpine 3600 in July. We have not had time to use it very much, but am looking foward to this next summer when we will pull it from Az. to Me. The bigest challenge I've had with it was getting the TV's hooked up the way I wanted. There was 8 tv wall jacks and only one marked. I have a sat reciever, but with the tv jacks down inside the lift cabinet , it gives you no where to put the sat reciever because you have a lower cab. and an upper cab. The only cab the reciever will fit in is the upper cab.I had to run coax from the lower wall plates up through the wall beside the refer and mount new wall jacks in the upper cab.I was also told by the salesman and the person that did the walk through that the roof was wired for a sat ant. That was not the truth. Anyway, I have it all rewired with a video selector in the cab above the main tv to select between sat, cable and ant. Keystone does have a wiring schematic for the tv wiring that helped a little.
