This was my first travel trailer. I searched for 3 solid months and all I found was a lot of out dated high priced junk! Just passing buy a small dealer on HWY 50 in Carson City, I thought I kill some time and see what he had for sale. When I walked into this 26ft Alpenlite Aspen......it hit me like a ton of bricks, I had found my new home on wheels. I never buy things from dealers but I had no choice as I was leaving the country in two weeks and had to have a trailer to come back to.when I returned in the spring. I knew the dealer knew how much I liked it so I paid top dollar and I had my home. So glad that I did as it has been an awesome coach for the 3 years that I have owned it.
