Question Any early 80's near Chicago?

Hi All:

My wife and I are interested in getting an early 80's FC Wanderlodge, but would like to get in one first to take a look around. Are there any near Chicago that the owners would be willing to show us?

thanks,

Thanks everyone for your offers to show us your motorhomes. My wife and I got to see Mike Hohnstein's unit this morning. Unfortunately, I am just to big to fit into one (OK, I am 6'4", but how can anyone fit behind the wheel ). Mike suggested looking into Airstream Motorhomes instead, something I am starting to do now.

I have a 1985 Wanderlodge with low miles that I am redoing interior in. I've had it 3 years and just don't have enough time or expertise to fiddle with these things. I'd love to sell it, but I'm in Oklahoma. If you're interested, I can email a ton of pictures.

Sorry, forgot to say my is a PT40, 300 hp detroit diesel, allison 5 speed auto, pusher configuration. All the room you need as I am 6' 1" and 280 lbs and I have no problem fitting. Has air adjustable driver's chair. All bluebird options including floor safe. I'm putting marble tile in it currently. Price is negotiable and (I think, considering what I paid!) reasonable.
