The term "diesel pusher" has caused many buyers to overlook the FC.
The FC Wanderlodge is a great machine,i would take a look at them for sure.


But,if you want an SP,i may have a very nice example of one coming in to sell,but its going to be another month.


My personal choice (more money than an FC) is the BMC 37 and i have a very nice one on BBBB,make a real offer and we might make a deal!

Thanks Randy,


I'd love to hear about the SP that will be available soon. Regarding the SP, FC, & BMC, what are the general pros & cons when comparing them to each other?

FCs just look way cooler than anything else. The PTs look great also, but I think you wanted to stay under 40feet. People love the look of the older Birds. The way they are layed out gives you a spacious feel all the areas are clearly defined with the living area dining and sleeping. I think you need to live in one for a while to truly appreciate and understand.

You can't beat a chrome bus. When my father and I end up together somewhere no one pays any attention to the million-dollar-when-new coach. It's my old FC they want to talk about.

The only downside to FCs is the bay storage. But I pull an F150 that has a 6.5' basement to take care of anything oversized and still can cruise at 64 mph with the 300hp 3208. I imagine am SP would perform similarly.

A BMC would give you modern drivetrain and the bay storage I'm missing. But its going to look like everything else out there.

I do absolutely love the look of the old style. If I were to pick solely on looks I'd opt for a PT40 from the late 80's, just too nervous about it's size for our first coach. We'll eventually get an older wrangler to tow, but for starters I'll need a motorcycle lift on the back for my Rnine-T Scrambler. I would prefer a rear engine, but I am open to an FC. My thoughts are it would be quieter going down the road, easier to get into the front seats, and the SP would give room for my Old English Sheepdog to lay next to me while I'm driving.

Randy, where is the FC located? Within driving distance from Southern Maine?
I'm not too mechanically intelligent so finding one in nearly perfect & updated condition is ideal.

My dog(a lab/pit pure bread mutt) 85 pounder likes to sit up on the dog house sometimes lays down up there. Sitting up there gives him a good view. Generally he hangs out on the couch behind the drivers seat, unless it’s past 10pm when he goes to bed and rides in the back. A rear engine must have less engine noise up front, but fc’s aren’t as loud as people think.
