Has anyone looked at or purchased the Alpenlite Defender?

If you have, how do you like it?

If it is built like my 99 Alpinlite was it will be a great unit. I will be buying one in 3 to 4 years.

Wowie-kazowie...what a TH. Obviously HIGH END. Sure does have a lot of buttt-scratchers! I'd be interested in finding out just how much those are- you know, in dollars.

Couple of things that concern me, though...FIRST...they've got a SRW truck hooked up to it...tisk, tisk. Wait 'til Lincster gets ahold of THAT one... Second, 5200# axles? I'd expect 6000# (at least because my WW SLC does). And I didn't see any measurements of the garage...I'm wondering how much they give you.

But I have to admit- that's one heck of a coach....darn nice!

I agree Fan Man, thats a nifty rig,but they need some duals on that truck. Think I'll run down and buy a lottery ticket.
