1965 Blue Bird Wanderlodge 31 Motorhome Exhibit "A"

1965 Blue Bird Wanderlodge 31' Motorhome (A)
1965 Blue Bird Wanderlodge 31 Motorhome

VIN (Vehicle Identification Number): 77004
Length (feet): 31

The original BLUE BIRD factory documents on this bus stating "Wanderlodge" assigned to this serial number coach.

This may be a "one off" the factory line with a front entry door instead of midway door. There are no signs it was ever moved. It appears 100% factory.

In 1974, the GM 409 motor was replaced with a Detroit Diesel and Allison automatic transmission at the factory. I have the papers on that too. The motor quickly starts and runs and sounds great!

On the passengers side rear, a cargo door panel is missing.

The bus body is super straight with no significant rust issues anywhere. The paint is old, the lower body could be buffed to look decent, the tip top roof line shows some flaking paint. The glass in the bus is good and not a single crack in the windshields.

Inside the bus it sports its entire original floor plan. The quality is amazing. None of this junky junk you see in newer RVs. The solid wood cabinets and doors are in fabulous condition.

The front driver's side couch folds up into bunk beds, and my kids love that! Sleeps two there. The kitchen table drops I believe to sleep two more. Then the rear bedroom which is cozy has two single beds.

Over the front bunk/couch is signs in the ceiling tile that there was a water leak there. I was told the leak was fixed but the tiles and some wood trim will need fixing.

I have not checked the plumbing, electrical or the Onan onboard generator. The generator has no batteries currently and will very likely need servicing. Surely the gas is bad from sitting.

Research indicates that less than 30 units produced for 1965. This is the only one known of with a front entry door.

UPDATE! THE MOTOR IS A DETROIT 6V53 WITH A ALLISON MT SIX SPEED AUTOMATIC. THE ONAN GENERATOR IS A 12.5 KW. SERIES JB/JC.

Location: San Antonio, Texas
