Hi,

I’ve been lurking for about a month since traveling to Texas to help a friend bring his new Bird (2000 LX Millenium) home to South Carolina. Driving one for the first time rekindled my deep seated desire to have my own. My wife and I have had four motorhomes (the last three have been American Eagles) since 2000. We’ve been looking for the last many months for our next on the road home. Until the trip to Texas, the search centered around higher end fifth wheels. After returning home I began to poke and prod through websites, and spent many hours reading through WOG. As of yesterday, we are on the path to replacing our 45’ 2011 Eagle with a 2003 Wanderlodge LXI 43’. The Bird has less than 26,000 miles, and many items have been replaced/upgraded. If things go per plan, we should take possession within the next month.

We are planning an extended trip out west beginning in late April, and while I have lots of planning to do, I’ll have lots of questions before departure. Be prepared for the onslaught!

Thanks in advance,

Arlin Verley

Well, we are the proud new owners of a 2003 LXi double slide. We’ve spent the last three days testing systems, learning, and waiting for some last minute Aquahot fixes. We’ll be leaving Texas in the morning, with a short stopover in Mississippi. By the time we reach home, the coach will have approximately 26,500 miles. There have been many upgrades/replacements/rebuilds (new residential fridge, stacked washer/dryer, satellite system, antenna, tires, batteries, Aquahot, alternator, re-upholstered couch and captains chairs, etc.). While there are flaws, what older coach doesn’t have them? We can’t wait to hit the road on an extended trip!

Nice coach. We are in Greenville so very close. Think about coming to birds at the beach in April.

Arlin, First of all congratulations on your new to you LXI . I'm curious to know why with only 26k miles so many upgrades were done to the coach . Was she possibly used as a mobile home the past 15 years ?
