Default New Bluebird Super C

Sorry, just wishful thinking.

If they built one I would buy it. It would out sell all the Dynamax, Renegade, Nexus and Jayco Seneca Super C's combined.

Maybe someone will think of doing it for this growing market niche.

I would like to think a new wanderlodge wouldn't even be in the same market as those provided it was still built right. My 31 year old bus had a higher price tag than what these things sell for now.

I did not mean a new Wanderlodge. Super C is a different beast altogether. Imagine this on a Bluebird bus chassis:

Sometimes you have to build your own.

I think the Dynamax products (and Renegade) are the closest modern version of a bluebird vs. a traditional modern class A design... for instance:
- Safer than typical class with a truck cab
- Strong truck chassis for lots of load carrying capacity
- Reliable diesel (500K to 1M miles)
They do have slides which I would prefer they didnt have but overall they do tick a lot of the boxes. We currently have a Sprinter based class B and looking for something larger with more tank capacity than we currently have. Looking at a class A is interesting but I don't like the safety aspect. A Bluebird would be great but maybe too old... not sure yet. As part of the search the Super C's do seem like a class B on steroids. Lots of the benefits we have with a Sprinter but a lot more carrying capacity.

These old diesels are from the time before all the emission junk they put in now. Everything breaks eventually- there's no way around 30 year old fresh water pumps or rubber airbags- but at least your breakdown will never be from running out of exhaust pee.

There are some nice pre-DEF era Dynamax's out there as well. I haven't seen one in person but they could be a nice option if people are in the market for a Super C. IMO a pre-DEF Dynamax Dynaquest 34 would be a good fit.

After researching class A's and then researching Bluebirds... I am not sure I can "unsee" the safety issues with a typical Class A... looks like if you want Class A comfort in a non-bird the Super C is really the only choice... other than custom but that's a whole different ball game.

If i was wanting a super C i would build one,or have one built.
Or i would build one,this summer i was at a shop near Brazil In. where a guy is building non-slide freightliner truck entertainer rigs.
They gross less than 26,000 lbs,so no cdl required,anybody can drive it in a commercial application.
He used to build Prevost conversions,but has now switched to the medium duty truck chassis,with 22.5 inch rubber.
I would get him to built the box on the truck and maybe the interior.
