SP/BMC/LX Production History
 
Looking for a history lesson here.

When did production start and end for:

SP 1992 - ????
BMC 1994 - 1997 ???
LX 1998 - ???

The SP was from 1989 to 1992

It's not cut and dried like an automobile. Remember everything Wanderlodge did was special order.
LX was 98-2001 (but now someone is going to chime in and say they have a 2002)
Slides were introduced in the LX in 2001 but there is probably one or two 2000's that have a slide.
Most 2001 LX's have the new style M380 front cap and most have a slide.
Again, nothing is in stone with Wanderlodge.

Clint,

There is a very definitive history on Vintage Birds. Looks like they got it all.

Like Randy said, "nothing is in stone with Wanderlodge"

Here’s my best guess:

I think the production of the SP’s began in 1988 and ran through 1992 but as far as SP model years I think that would be 1989-1992.

I think BMC production began in 1993 and ran through 1997 with at least one 1993 model BMC being produced. I think the model year range of the BMC’s would be 1993-1997.

I think LX production began in 1997 and ran through at least 2002 or possibly 2003 or even later (hard to say because there were coaches sitting around waiting to be shipped with not many buyers in those years - but there could have been some special orders). I think the model range for the LX would be 1998-2003 but there could be a few that were sold as later models?
