the seller just has to cover his arse.. ultimately the reality is if I sell a vehicle and the buiyer doesnt get the title converted right away, parks it on a city street and it gets impounded, then its on the seller to pay the fees.. if the buyer drives the vehicle unsafely, crashes it, and runs away, the seller can be held liable.. if it leaves on a trailer the buyer and seller bith know it isnt being driven off his lot in an unsafe condition.. so if any suitsare filed later, it can be proved the vehucle left his posession on a trailer..

Most often here in Ca, a lien sale is associated either with an unpaid repair bill or a tow company stuck with a required junk tow. I've purchased many vehicles at lien sales and the only trick is the necessity to pay up any reg fees and parking tickets before they can be registered. If they are shipped out of state on a trailer or purchased by a dismantler they are exempt from those fees.

My research suggests that a 1971 Wanderlodge would have come with a gasoline Ford V8. Obviously that would have to go byebye right away if it hasn't already been swapped.

Some of them got swapped like Eric’s did. Since they were high end RV for their day people tended to keep them running

I could live with a gasser. It wouldn't be driven too far too often so gas would just fine.

Address shows that it's at place called Sarge's Inside Storage.

My guess is that someone stored it, and they've never seen them again for whatever reason. Storage company then put a lien on it as abandoned and now have the title in hand and want it gone.

Probably hasn't run or moved in how many years, which is why the stipulations are on the sale because they don't want any issues with it and definitely don't want it back. Cool wanderlodge but the buyers market is going to be small because not only do you have to have the cash to tow it out, you'll have to have a place to fix it and the knowledge on how to fix it.

I'd be interested if I was in the area.

Same here. If I weren't on literally the opposite corner of rht country I'd be quite interested. it would cost me a thousand bucks just to have a look at it and many thousands more to get it somewhere I could do anything with it.

It will be the ford 534 super duty V8, only used in medium and heavy duty trucks back then

And my wanderlodge came with a non turbo 3208 originally

I wouldn't touch it - WAY too far.

There are decent diesel Wanderlodges (as in, known condition, drivable, verified history) for $15,000 or so if you look carefully / wait a bit.

For a gasser in unknown condition, on the opposite side of the country, forget it. Even if the tow wasn't too bad, I think it would take forever to go through all the systems. It would be about the same amount of work as just building a skoolie to start with.
