We have decided to sell our Bird that we have enjoyed the past 6 years. Some twists in life are such that we will not be able to enjoy and use it as we have. Rather than leave it sit in the shed, we would like it to go to a new owner.

Rebuilt control box for generator, all new relays/sockets
Trailer hitch rebuild 2017 (pics on WOG)
Much misc that I can’t remember at the moment

As you can see, we did a lot to it, always with the intention of keeping it forever. Things change, however.

As they all are, it needs a few things done. They are always a "work in progress". Rear suburban furnace is removed, will need a new one. Carpet is worn but useable. that was/is next on my list to do. Gen needs a little tinkering to see why it won't start from inside.

Asking $23,500. Come and look, make an offer. I will not discuss "bottom dollar price" over the phone, will entertain offers by phone, but prefer you see it first so you know what we have. We are serious sellers, please be serious buyers. We are not desperate, just don't want to see it sit and not be used. This Bird is one that can be driven away today with no worries, I would have no problem taking off to Minnesota right now with it (most of our trips were there) You still have time to buy it and go to WOG 2017! Has nearly a full tank of fuel!

Give me a call at 479-886-0713 , please leave a message and best time to call you if no answer. I will try to get a few photos on here, but may have to wait till I get home. We have, or can take, any photos you wish.

May sell 2001 Durango R/T toad with it if desired, with Blue Ox Aventa 10,000# bar with Ready Brake. We can discuss price on that if needed.

Couple more photos I got this morning. Was too dark to get good inside photos today. Randy, I seem to remember someone looking, but haven't come across the thread yet.

Looks like a great Bird. Lots of upgrades, I'm curious about "air ride upgrade", what is that?

I've got a local who's been heckling me about finding a FC, gave up the seller phone number, may call, if he does be gentle, dude want's but isn't totally up to speed why a BB is the truth. I explained why this example is about as good as it gets @ the price point.

Here's a few more pictures I had, haven't been home enough to back it out to get brighter ones.

Charlie, the 79 was originally a leaf spring model. This one the original owners had the air ride suspension installed.

Mike, thanks for helping get the word out. These Bluebirds are for sure one of the best motorhomes out there for build quality, definitely made to keep on the road forever with good maintenance! I promise I'll be gentle!

Unhappy

Reason for pulling off the market is a problem we found when a WOG member came to look. The generator is locked up on it. We have never used or needed it, just ran it several years ago for a minute or so to see if engine ran. Had control issues when we bought it which didn't allow it to start from switches which i had not resolved. Looking at the records from previous owners show it has run less than 50 hours since 1995. Stanford/Newage gen head was installed during their tenure as owners but apparently never run.

We will put it up for sale again after I find the problem and get it resolved. Don't know if injection pump will lock it, or if engine needs a rebuild at this point as I have not looked at it yet. Will start a new thread on Generator page as I get into it.
