While it does look like a bird, it's certainly not anything like we're used to. There doesn't appear to be any RV features at all. Okay, maybe the gen could be considered "RV", but little else. Just an open shell that has some cabinets installed.

The Bluebird on EBAY is not a wanderlodge but a "Q bus". Official BB designation is QBRE or rear engine Q bus. Surprisingly I have all of the information on it, exploded views etc from BB. It is the same body and chassis that BB made the Baby Bird with. Clear out the inside and it could easily be made into a nice RV.

There is another variation of it called the QBEV or Electric Q bus. I have the information on it also.

There is one of those with windows in good shape sitting in the grass in Cleveland, GA and the guy will not sell it.
I am going to call this guy tomorrow. I may go see it and check out his business. I need something to do.
Maybe I could make some BB graphics. Maybe not. It depends on where the price is tomorrow. Won't hurt to look, I guess.

I am easily confused. Is this ebay item the old service unit?

yes,its the old service truck,they towed a white astro van too.

before they had this bus they just used the astro van,no room for parts,just tools.
The coach owners all got together and told BB that we needed a better service rig,and this "Q" bus was put into service.it may have been a prototype bus that had been parked out back,to be scrapped.
This was back when Mike Burkette and Glenn rogers were the "on the road" service guys.

Then Glenn went back in the shop and Bennie was a "road" guy.
