Rare opportunity to own the "1989 Tour", a 1989 Bluebird Wanderlodge Wide Body. Built by the Bluebird bus company but always a (certified) RV, the Wanderlodge is an all-steel body, vintage luxury motorhome with tons of character. The engine and exterior are in excellent condition, and the interior has numerous updates. These rare birds are built to last and have a cult-like following that rivals Airstream. Built in 1989, this model sold for almost 500,000 dollars to its first owner.

 Mechanical: She runs great! It has an Allison transmission with an engine retarder. On-board diesel generator and airplane-style gauges.

It has had new tires, hydraulic lines, fuel filter housing, air-ride bags, and tires within the past three years. An airplane mechanic owned this Coach before we purchased it, and they kept it in meticulous mechanical shape.
Everything is mechanical, making it easy to work on. Parts can typically be found from diesel truck centers and CAT dealers.

The previous owner purchased many spare parts and manuals that can be provided to the buyer if desired.

Needs: The speedometer doesn't work, and we used a GPS to monitor speed, odometer quit working at 100,000 Miles, but it has been driven less than 15,000 miles since it broke. It has a leveling system that needs servicing but is comfortable to use without; some miscellaneous areas have minor issues, such as latches on the interior storage that don't always latch, etc.

 Interior: Recently replaced the interior with life-proof flooring in front and rear of the coach. New paint and aesthetic improvements as well. There is a very comfortable couch that converts into a twin bed and also has seat belts as needed. Both the driver's and passenger's seats are comfortable "captain's chairs" with normal wear and tear. Both chairs swivel to allow more seating options for when the coach is parked. The dinette sits four and also contains seat belts for when the vehicle is in motion. The kitchen includes a two-burner-cook top, a microwave/convection oven combo, a double sink, generous storage, and countertops made of Corian. The refrigerator and freezer both run great and operate on propane but should be easy to convert to 120 volts as needed. Three overhead AC units keep the place nice and chilled. Two of them were replaced within the past four years. Heat can be run out of the overhead units as well.

Other Features: Full Bath with a Shower Tub Combo, electric hot water heater works great, massive holding tanks and slide-out storage underneath, outside freezer/cooler, new outside grill that needs to be installed, camera installed that allows you to watch your tow vehicle at all times, airplane style-overhead storage in the main coach.

Driveability: This coach is a pleasure to drive. You don't get "beat up" from driving it. This was the first Class A Motorhome I have ever driven, and it handles far better than any Class C. Despite it's size, it turns in tight areas very well. You don't get the "sway" from trucks passing, and it feels very comfortable and is very safe to drive. And when pulling a tow vehicle you won't even realize it.

There are other features that I am forgetting because these coaches were built fully loaded. This coach will continue to hold its value, and its value may even increase since it is a vintage coach. My family and I traveled in this a lot this year while working from home was still an option, but with that season coming to a close, we have decided to sell.

With only 105,000 original miles on her, she still has tons of life in her! Detroit Diesel engines will last a million miles, and the Bus-body is more durable than any brand new motorhome. Located in Milner, GA. Clear title in hand!


 Also available: 2010 Honda CRV, ready to be flat-towed, including flat-tow bar and hookups. More info upon request.

Take both the motorhome and the CRV (with towing package) for $60,000.
