Well, you’ve picked a lovely spot to be locked up. It looks like Oregon State Parks will be shut down starting tomorrow.

That coach looks like a 36MDDS with custom paint.

I think this one was for sale last year.

Yes, he purchased it last year. Previous owner owned a body shop and painted it a while back.
Looks nice, 1998 mds.

It's interesting to see the door behind the front tire! I have a 2007 MDDS and the door is actually in the middle of the Coach.

Technically, that would still be behind the front tire.

The door on the 40’ mid-door models is definitely more centered on the side of the coach than the 36’ mid-door models.

Thanks RvPioneer for correcting my senior moment!

I do have a 36 MDDS sighting in my yard, unfortunately not on the road someplace exciting!

Interesting. Our 2005 36MDDS has the door more forward. The dining table is to the left of the stairs and a recliner to the right.

Well they kicked us out of Oregon yesterday at 2pm. They only allowed camp hosts and military vets to stay. Full time rv'ers had 24 hours to leave.
I-5 looked like a rolling rv show yesterday afternoon/evening. I-5 rest stops full up in Or and Wa. Thankfully we have a home. Feel sorry for the fulltimers.

Yes, that 2007 definitely has the door further rearward. Note the vents for the refrigerator and their location to the door. I would assume the refrigerator is on the left and adjacent to the stairs, with the table and living room chairs to the right. Definitely a different floor plan than the 2004 or 2005.

No modification to the headlights.
My 1998 36FDS has the same configuration and fading plastic covering.

Got passed on my way home from Moses Lake Washington by what I believe was a 36 FDDS on I90 West bound at Snoqualmie pass pulling boat.

I was Westbound on I-90, just into Idaho, around 10 or 11AM this morning.
Saw another Alpine heading Eastbound climbing up the pass.
I got so excited to finally see another Alpine 'in the wild', it was all I could do to honk the horn at them/you.

Not sure exact model as it was a twisty section of highway and had to pay attention, but looked like a similar year to ours, but with the paint scheme with green in it. Very pretty coach.
