Here are a few pictures of Wanderlodge #1 - built in 1963.

That's the big question. John Bleakley RV owned it and they recently went out of business. Perhaps Ron ((Ron are you still on the group?) can enlighten us?

If it's there, I didn't see it displayed. I was there over the summer, and it was nowhere to be found...

Blue Bird #1 is in the Ford Museum, BB1 was the very first school bus made by the Luce family. I don't think Wanderlodge 1 is there.
