After buying ours, I definitely look more closely at all the RVs passing by, but so far no Alpines. :(

I look for the aluminum detail in the front cap between the headlights and the driving light position

La Push Campground

Ran into Paul and family at La Push, Quillyute Campground. They pulled in last night three sites down from us. Nice meeting those guys, even though the weather isn't cooperating. Nor was my electrical system....lol

Spotted one on the Southbound I-5 near Panoche Rd this morning around 9:00am. Mostly white, looked to be a 98-99 with a CRV in tow.

One more to report, on the bouncing bridge north of Sacramento, headed S on I-5.
Maybe a 2004-06 with a silver Jeep in tow.

RV Pioneer,
That was probably me. Timing is about right. I usually see other Alpines. Must have been focused on the traffic.

Total Alpine

I hear there are about 300 members of the ACA.
Anyone have an idea of the total number of alpine coaches still on the road?

Saw one on the southbound I-5 just south of Eugene, OR this morning around 11:30am. Looked to be a 40’, maybe 2004-6 with a burgundy toad.
