Default Good Ole Bird Has a New Home

Well, we made it 1500 miles from Sun City Arizona to to the bayou and my wife said she would be happy if it got us home...and it did!


And I want to say right off the bat that we love this thing, it's like a mansion and a hot rod combined. I love the 250 turbo, the two speed rear end and the Telma retarder. I wouldn't want to drive it through the mountains again without a Telma...


And the work that has been done by the previous owners is overwhelming. We're still trying to take it all in...


My name is Greg and my wife is Maranda and we feel honoured to be the owners and stewards of such a beautiful American made machine...


Thanks everyone here for their expertise, input and willingness to help and answer questions...

That's what I think every time I look at it!


I just think personally that the FCs are the top, classic wanderlodge, plus I like the engine in the front and I like to hear it...

Did you have any trouble with the hill at Landa RV park. We have stayed there several times with our older fifth wheel. We just weren’t sure how it would be in the Bird.
