1988 doesn't worry me in the slightest. That bus looks to be in awesome condition. Randy will not sell you a piece of junk. Finding these majestic machines with a wheelchair lift is rarer than hens teeth and this one has those hens teeth already in place! Any bus or RV you get will require maintenance, regardless of it's age. I would feel far safer transporting my loved ones in one of these solid machines than I would in any other sticks and staples RV. Heck I am not even sure one of them would withstand the addition of a wheelchair lift. They simply aren't built that sturdy.
This is a steel bus with steel ribbing. It is the only bus certified in a roll over crash.

But to each their own, if the age bothers you that much, good luck on finding something newer that fits your families needs.

Randy, that's $45,000 just in new parts alone, not to mention the labor for installing it all. You are basically giving the bus away at that price. Heck it's in far better shape then ours, we just don't need the lift or any of the bunks or bed rails.

I bet the engine and tranny rebuild ws $45,000,not to mention the other stuff.
Take the lift out if you don't need it,and with the lift door shut you will never know.
Or use the lift as a "veranda".
The bunk beds can be used for kids,or adults,they are adult sized.
I like the open floor plan.
It still has everything needed to camp or live aboard.

We travel in our 83 with family and normally don't bring a car with us. It comes down to how its been maintained and how well you take care of it. Drive by a camping world and look at all the new(er) units waiting for work... I would not let 1988 scare me at all.


The rebuilt engine and transmission were the main reason we bought our bird. Everything else was secondary.



I'd think anything that might break would have after 25K miles on the rebuild.

And how old are you sir?
Ha!

Just a little humor!
WE get what they are saying.
But you may be looking at the wrong brand,since all birds are now at least 10yo.

There is absolutely no way you are going to find a Wanderlodge maintained like this one, equipped as you need, for that price. I don't think you can find any kind of coach or RV that equals this one at that price. The wheelchair lift is rare and very expensive to put into any coach. Good luck

Just spent later part of last week in Winchester Va. with a small group of Blue Birders at an antique big truck show. There were a considerable number of earlier Detroit diesel’s As well as those that power the 80’s Wanderlodges . Many of those trucks were used hard hauling loads in excess far beyond any duty cycle seen by any Wanderlodge. The miles on them were also far beyond what most here have on their coaches.
That list of preventative maintenance to make this coach dead nuts reliable for the business of medical transport tells me this owner took the responsibility to be sure he would not experience breakdowns while conducting transports. If this had been available when I was shopping I believe I would have bought it. All the major expense items have been addressed and will likely provide reliable service well beyond the next owners period of care taking. My 2000 LXI is a beautiful coach at a premium well beyond the price of this coach but....... it don’t sound or have the cool factor like Shane’s
