Move your post to the Alpine forum and you will get some responses. There are lots of motorhomes that the manufacturers have gone out of business. Personally, I don't think it is a big deal. Basically everything is an existing manufactured part except the body and frame. The Alpine group is pretty active and a good source of technical information. A lot of the documentation has been gathered into a searchable data base on the forum.

As Rich posted, there is a ton support on the Alpine sub-forum here and technical information on the Alpine Coach Association site. Like most coaches, the various sub-systems came from outside suppliers that are still on business.

I didn't let the fact that WRV went out of business stop me from buying one last January. I don't regret the purchase.
