Stumbled across this from the Wanderlodge Wiki:

“1980 Wanderlodge Forward Control (FC)
This is the first year Ridewell air suspension was added to the standard equipment. However, some early 1980 units were shipped with leaf spring suspension”

John's bus has the Ridewell air suspension. It also has the big rear bath which is nice and hard to find.

Sorry if it’s posted and I missed it, but what is the mileage on this bus?

From Facebook ad:

“Mileage shows 49049, but I can't verify only a 5 digit odometer.”

The real deal on the miles/hours etc is this.
If the engine runs good,and has a good history with the owner and the owner is well known in the wanderlodge circle,what diff does the milage make?

Odometers and hour meters can both lie (not saying the seller is lying) but most hour meters in old birds work when the key is on,not when the engine is running.
Odometers and hour meters in Birds have a history of not being accurate.

Thanks for the info Randy. I guess I would agree with that line of reasoning. Probably not a completely without value. If it said the bud had 400,000 miles on it I would probably want to know that. If nothing else it can help scope expectations if it’s an outlier, but the difference between 75,000 and 150,000 on something like this doesn’t mean too much to me.
