We also have a Lifestyle Luxury RV. Agree with all pcm said. And yes they are as good as they look. The fit and finish is excellent .. a bonus is the lack of Lippert components. 2016 was the last mfgr year.

I'll bet a fast food dinner deluxe that the selling price on the much drooled on Lifestyle was way, way more then any similar sized offering from Alliance or Grand Design.
Funny how many people want the build quality of a $200,000 RV and complain when they don't see it in an RV with and MSRP of $80,000. Hmm, wonder why that is?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdBnnwuXPpYHERE is a video done by a man named Traveling Robert who looked at the new Alliance line. Right off the bat, it's a good looking rig.

judging from the comments about Alliance, I think they show how much the folks want improvement in durability and quality in the RV industry. Is Alliance going to fill that need, I am not sure. It is new and unproven, but I don't see it as that much of improvement over its competition. Vanleigh had similar responces when it came out, but it has not proven to be better than its competition. In short many people are quick to jump for anything touted to be better and improved, while in reality it is not so. caveat emptor....

IMO he was looking at a custom built prototype, where they probably took the time to do an extra special job, especially in the fit and finish department. They apparently have 4 prototypes that they are rotating around the winter RV shows . What they don't have yet is a production facility. I would bet the units that get built on a production line by pieceworkers will be slightly different.

^^. GDS hit the nail on the head. It is a prototype of a single model. Ran across the story on an RV trade publication website. The Tampa show was its first appearance. FWIW, RV One and LazyDays in Florida have apparently signed on to the Alliance dealer network.

Alliance RV is selling units now. There are some dealers with small numbers on their lots but they are selling out very fast through the RV shows.

They are currently being produced at their smallish shop while their new production facility is being built, but they are manufacturing units for sale. They have at least 3 models they are currently showing (and selling) at the rv shows through their dealer network.

Here is a unit you can buy today.

No dog in this fight just stating facts. There really isn't a lot different that I see between these and Grand Design, Montana, Pinnacle or Vanleigh. Lippert frame, dexter axles, similar if not identical layouts, furniture etc..
