I'm not doubting Gary, but can anyone else confirm what he was told?

I talked to parts at Holland two weeks ago. They did not have what I was hunting for, however; I did talk to someone in "parts"... at least I think I did....

My last contact with Holland, they were Holland Motorhome & Bus Co.
they did not seem much interested in my Vintage Bird, There was a line up of airport type & transit busses in for repair.

I work with Scott Vroon at Holland Michigan on a weekly basis. They are definitely still in the Wanderlodge/BlueBird parts business.

About three weeks ago, I ordered something for our 83 FC from Scott at Holland in Michigan and got it the next day. He was there for me...no problem.

I suspect the available parts for older coaches is very limited.

As of 8.30am this morning Scott in parts was not aware and shocked to learn that he was no longer in the parts and service business
He said that Holland was definitely in the parts and service business
bearing in mind that some parts really old are no longer obtainable.
Holland Motorhome and Bus Company is trying to the best of their ability to handle requests for parts and service

Sorry for the bum post. I just contacted Holland Motor Homes to verify the info that was given a few weeks ago about parts and service.I was told that was bad info given by someone (disgruntled employee?) they are open for service and parts. No good deed goes unpunished.
