From what I can see it looks good, even the interior. I'm tempted, but I don't need it.

1982 bluebird wanderlodge, 3208 cat, MT643, got 8 mpg on the trip home when I bought it 4 years ago pulling my car, it weights just under 30,000 pounds, thinking about selling it since I have never used it as I intended

And you like your bus better than your WanderLodge?

Apparently there are four people converging on this WanderLodge with cash tomorrow morning (Thursday). I should probably kick myself for not getting it but another vehicle is pretty much out of the question.

Is it anybody from here?

wow you guys are right these things are just Like professinal bus conversions.. I'll btthey drive nice and stable on the highway...

I found driving commercial coaches on the highway to be rather unstable in the wind.. I MUCH prefer driving a school bus on the road than a commercial RV.. but one of these is probably just like running a Bus.. how cool! and that one in the pic looks really nice!!

On my return trip from KY with my bus, I got SMOKED on the interstate by some old folks in a blue and silver Wanderlodge.

That is a great price for the Wanderlodge, especially if it runs and has minimal to no rust. Another cool thing about them is they were built with the steel bus body and most had diamond plate over this on the roof, so you can walk on the roof with no problem. Very well built units and durable. Just wish most of them had 4 stroke diesels instead of the 2 strokes.

The owner said four people were converging on his location today and the '75 was going to the first one that could produce the cash. He previously had it listed at 10k, but decided to just get rid of it because he hadn't been using it.

I know motor homes are hard to sell, but a Wanderlodge too? I told him if the sale falls through he could come and twist my arm to make me buy it.

I'm thinking the insulation in a WanderLodge is probably our favorite yellow glass fiber batting, but at least there aren't as many windows as a bus.
