We Traded Up

Traded our 2003 Gulfstream Sun Voyager for a 2003 Western RV Alpine Coach 40 MDTS. 400HP Cummins ISL power. We're loving it.

The Alpines are nice rigs, tried to look at them back about 2000 or so but the dealer wouldn't let us inside. Guess we didn't look like we could afford it. Fooled them and bought a Dutch Star instead.

That is a very nice looking rig. I understand the Alpines were noted for their outstanding handling.

We saw one like that several years ago while at Emerald Isle, NC. I noted the mid entry door and have always wondered why so few DP's have mid entry.

Hope you enjoy many happy miles in the coach.

Thanks to all. We are settling in and really like our new home (we're full-timers). I'll post more pictures once we have things organized on our site.

Nice rig. We looked at Alpines in the mid 90s but couldn't afford one. I've always thought they looked good and were well built. One of the things we noticed back then, same as your coach, is the very large windows to see the USA. Congrats.

Thanks again everyone. Tim, I'll post interior shots after we've had a chance to settle in and DW is happy with her decorating.
