When we were managing Quail Run RV Park in Quartzsite, we had a 450 come in for a couple of days.
******* me when over and spoke about WOG, he said he wasn't interested in it as it was for "other rigs, not ours"....sorta snooty, I thought.
I think he only bothered to talk to me cause we ran the park.
Didn't see him again or his towed Lincoln.

I just broke the code on the secret handshake I think it's called flipping the bird

Not big on secret hand shakes
I would buy an M-450 in a heart beat if I found one I liked enough
With only a handful ever built that mite be a tall order
Not scared of this coach, Most of use didn’t know any thing about the coach we own now when we bought them, so I see no problems there, just a new adventure
My biggest concern is how livable are they on the road?
I’d like see more interior pictures with slides IN for traveling
No doubt their great parked with everything deployed but you can’t roll out the slides at Walmart
Well you can but it’s bad etiquette
Certainly some folks scoff at this notion but I’ve done several two to three week trips and only hit the campgrounds to service the holding tanks, time and distance to next attraction doesn’t give us the luxury of camping overnight
We’ve traveled with friends with quads and they have to bump a slide to use the Commode, that’s just bad planning, I know that’s not the case with the 450 but a picture is worth a thousand words

Kurt. I would send photos but I failed the John Finn photo posting school. Our coach is livable with slides in even with the 2 small pups . Don’t get me wrong the is no space for ballroom dancing but we can pass in the isle and enjoy stops at Walmart or wherever without setting up the coach.

We really love our coach and enjoy it as often as we can both of us still working. I did not worry a bit when we purchased it as our third bird. WOG is here if I need help.

Exactly what Bryan said ! If you can’ live short term with the slides in, you have issues and probably shouldn’t own a motorhome... of any brand ! And as for the secret handshake club, that’s a while nother issue, and the new owners are getting BS’d into a group that’s going nowhere ! Just my opinion

For those of you that might wonder how are the air conditioners going to cool the interior with the slides closed: Bluebird incorporated fans in the overhead slide out ceiling just for that purpose.

They probably wired them all to a "clapper", but if you clapped too hard it would turn on the wrong fan.
