It's a door to a recessed area that looks to be about 4 to 5" deep. The three hinges and the two keyed locks seems to be a bit overkill though. I wonder what he planned on showing off in there?

Wow. Just think. I could have that rusting hulk of a project hang over my head and consuming all my free time for the next ten years just for trading him my trouble free golf cart.
No Thanks.

I'm with you Bill, I don't think its a Wanderlodge. Too many differences from the early ones I have seen. I don't recall seeing the paneling on the walls, the "button" headliner, the chrome roof rack. BB typically didn't use as many "rub rails" on the Wanderlodge as the old school busses had. The Wanderlodge plate on the side is (was) available, I have a couple. I could be wrong but I don't think this is a Wanderlodge.

I am not that familiar with FC's but I took a look at the 1969 and 1970 pictures on the VintageBird site.

It seems that the generator door on this coach is similar to the VintageBird pictures. As well, the driver's side profile, (window locations, utilities, goat rail support, size of rub rails) seem to match.

It would certainly take a lot of work to duplicate this from a school bus.

My guess would be that it started out as a Wanderlodge but, at sometime, the interior was removed and replaced with what you see today.
