Default 1996 BMC37 For Sale in Michigan

First of all, we love our Bluebird BMC37. We have been lifelong campers and we always loved Bluebirds, but it did not seem like a possibility until we had the opportunity to buy this one. When we purchased it, we had great plans to travel in it and this website was the deciding factor in jumping in. It has been a great ride, but reality has struck and the truth of the matter is we are about 10 years too early. With work and kids still in college, we just don't have the time to use the BMC. We have commiserated over this for the past six months and finally decided to offer it for sale.

The motorcoach has two previous owners -- who happened to be best friends, so it was essentially "family owned". It has a Cummins turbo diesel and runs great. The motorcoach accumulated about 97,500 miles during their ownership and about 500 under mine. The paint is in very good condition with a few scraps here and there, but overall it looks very good for a near 20 year old vehicle. The inside is grey formica with a corian counter and table. The chairs and window treatments are original and very fashionable.....for 1996.....LOL

The tires were always covered and are in good condition, but will need to eventually be replaced due to age. The house batteries hold a charge very well, but I will be replacing the chassis batteries prior to sale since they seem to be at the end of their life.

We dropped off the BMC at Spartan Chassis last fall for a full inspection. At that time, they replaced the suspension airbags and serviced a list of other minor items. Their report is available for those who are considering purchase of the motorcoach.

Overall, the motorhome is in very good condition. It does have a "honey-do" list like any home or motorcoach, but is very much usable as it sits today.

Again, we regret selling it, but it just doesn't fit into our plans as well as we would like it to. Our hope is to try this again in 10 years when we are ready to retire.

We are asking $45,000.00 for the motorcoach, but are open to offers. At this point, we are only advertising on WOG and will try BBB in a week or two. The BMC is located about 10 miles north of Lapeer, Michigan, near M24 and Burnside Road. It can be viewed on weekends, if arranged ahead of time.

If interested, please send a PM or email. I do not have internet access during the day, but I will try to respond asap when I get home in the evening.

- The oil was last changed 2 years ago, and it only has about 1,200 miles on it. However, it is due to be changed due to time.
- Due to the above items and we are motivated to sell, we decided to drop the price to $40,000.
- Since interested parties may be coming from out of state, I will work with them to make the transition as easy as possible. It is in a campground, so it is possible for the buyer to actually stay in it for a few days and familiarize themselves with the unit prior to departing.

Again, we regret selling the BMC, but other priorities have replaced the privilege of Bluebird ownership.

Jim & Renee this is a difficult decision, but Your BMC is at a fair price and should sell. Hopefully we will still be here when you return in 10 years. Sorry we did not meet, We traveled south last Winter, and after being gone 5 months we have much to do at the home front.

We have gone back and forth on keeping our BMC, but life has thrown us some curves (all good) so we have decided to sell the motorcoach in the spring.

I can provide pictures and details, but the BMC is on a lot with a cover on it, so it will have to wait until spring to see it, unless they are extremely serious.

If interested, send me a pm and I will respond as soon as possible.

This is a really nice coach, but we just don't see using it and we'd rather sell it than let it sit and deteriorate.

Merry Christmas!

The coach is for sale and will be available in late April for viewing. It is parked and covered in a private campground, which is inaccessible until then.

I have some pictures, so please let me know if your interested.

Default 1996 BMC37

The BMC37 is finally ready to sell after the long winter. It is located 10 miles north of Lapeer, Michigan in a campground. Started right up after hooking up the batteries. It runs great, has a full tank of fuel and is ready to roll. A WOG member has looked it over, so hopefully, he will check in with his comments.

Just noticed the first entry in not editable, so here is an update:

We have put about 1,200 miles on the coach, so it has a little over 98k on it now. Still runs great, just needs an owner who will use it.

We should also mention that we are ready to deal and would love to see this go to a WOG member.

Cool, another Hoosier has joined the club and the search. Welcome! If you go up north and buy it stop on your way down and rest a spell. I have full hook up for any WOGer passing through.

Ditto for the other side of Indiana.
