I know I have been one of the negative ones you are referring to. We got off to a bad start coach and have encountered several other people who are not happy.
You may or may not know, our previous coach was a Marathon/Prevost, 1997 with no slide outs. Part of my attitude is I have owned the best, previous to the Alpine.
I told my wife when we were coming home through the mountains, that this Alpine drives as good, or maybe even better than the Marathon did. It handles really well.
All of our issues so far have been with the "house" part of the coach.
As stated in some of our posts, WRV has really tried hard to solve our problems. If things stay fixed, we will be happy with the coach, but feel that a lot of our issues should never have been allowed to leave the factory in the first place.
We are hoping for the best, and if you want to talk, PM me and I will give you my number.
