FOR SALE: Ultimate Vacation Machine $57,900 USD
Class A - Diesel / Kentwood, MI

Ultimate vacation getaway, Zombie apocalypse, road-ready, top-of-the-line Diesel Pusher motorcoach. When crafted in 1988, the Blue Bird Wanderlodge WB40 was the best money could buy. It was built to last forever – with a timeless modern/retro interior. This beauty was hundreds of thousands when new and over the last few years a small fortune was spent to keep this machine road worthy, reliable and safe.

This Bluebird Wanderlodge has been upgraded from front to rear, inside and out, and is ready to drive anywhere in the country. It NEEDS nothing. Yes, there are a few minor things here and there – but nothing that gives pause to cruising down the interstate with your loved ones. It has driven 15,000+ miles in the last 3 years flawlessly. All maintenance is up to date and everything mechanical works as it should. All interior systems fully functional. See below for a detailed list of upgrades and recent service.

If you aren’t familiar with Bluebird Wanderlodge’s, you’ll quickly find they are world class. Galvanized steel walls, structure, frame – they are the safest and strongest vehicle on the road short of an Abrams tank. Aluminum tread plate on the roof (have a party up there if you want to). Windows open wide to enjoy summer breezes. Awnings in great shape. Hardwood floors. New upholstery. Corian countertops, dual sink in kitchen, and tile backsplashes. Cabinet grade plywood. Storage enough to bring everything, including the kitchen sink. You could easily and comfortably live in this coach full-time. You’ll be the envy of your friends and admired everywhere you go.

Reason for sale: we’ve made some great memories. Moving to house on a lake and the kids want a boat. Not considering trades. Last we checked, a Wanderlodge doesn’t float very well. It’s ready to continue making new memories.
