Is this a April’s fool joke ?

This is not a Wanderlodge.

It’s a mobile medical unit, first responders vehicle,
not a rv unless RV stands for rescue vehicle.

The "bus" is a BlueBird...but afraid it was never a Wanderlodge.

Likely you could contact BlueBird with the VIN and get some build information, and from there build up a set of records/files for it. The chassis, engine, suspension, and drivetrain are going to be very standard with good parts and service availability. Try this: https://vantage.blue-bird.com/Portal/Vantage-Home.aspx

As far as the internal customization as a medical unit & various internal systems (plumbing, electrical, generator, waste tanks, heat/AC) it's anyone's guess who did the work and how engineered. I've spent some time on field command buses and found typically they are made with robust power generation, full electric systems - no propane, decent heat/ac but overall a rather minimalist "RV" set up as far as water supply, cooking, waste tankage, bathroom accommodations, no carpeting or nice wall coverings...but a lot of walls that you can draw on with with dry markers!

Good luck...has potential.

Bluebird does have all the maintenance records but nothing on the build out
I figured it was a converted rv since it has the leveling system in it
I have to look today there is a 5 inch thick binder with a parts list

Have you ever been inside the bus?
Normally an RV will have a shower,sink,stove,toilet and a bed.
Plus a few TVs and some nice recliners and stuff.
And,normally they don't have the words "medical" on the top front.
Not saying we don't need a medical bus on hand,it might even be a good idea to have one on hand.
Is he looking to sell the bus?
We do have a recently retired dentist,we may be able to talk him into a mobile practice.

All jokes aside (hope you have a sense of humor!),its not really our thing!

Steve,

This Blue Bird chassis would have been purchased by one of the OEM's that specialize in conversion to Mobile Emergency Vehicles. There will be a plaque somewhere with this name: Braun does a lot (based in Ohio), E-One (now based in Florida) does a lot, etc, etc. same folks that do ambulances and fire apparatus. Once you find the plaque it will have the serial number or build number, it should not be a big deal to contact the OEM and get the build specs.. You will have two sets of specs Blue Bird and the OEM.

Good luck!

its not a Wanderlodge,never was,never will be.
Blood bus maybe?
they put levelers on blood buses to make them stable,no shaking while trying to hit a vein.

Might be helpful to share what your employer's hopes and dreams are for this vehicle. No doubt it's a blood collection ride in it's present layout. There's one like that in my town in ID.
