Default 2001 wanderlodge lx

I'm looking at a 2001 lx. That needs repair. Because of that I'm looking for availability of wiring schematics and possible wire harness for genset area due to a fire. Also a y information on this unit would be appreciated are they reliable , any common issues to look for? How available are parts and service information? Where can brochures or general construction information be found. Thanks for allowing me to the forum. This looks to be. A solid coach for our retirement use and I will.appreciate any help

I know of it.


Lets ask you a few questions.
Are you very handy with tools,wiring and mechanical in general?
Can you built wiring harnesses and do body work?

I am a licensed ap or aircraft mechanic and instructor for diesel technology so probably yes. But I am seeking information to determine viability to restore this unit . To recreate wire har ess i would need schematics wire si,zes etc locations of components. Availability of proprietary components, you get the picture. I am finding it hard just to learn more about bluebirds and wanderlodges to see if i wa t to put the time effort and money into it. Can you provide insight? And more importantly are you willing.

Hi Harry.
IMO,which means nothing,the coach in question has too hefty a price on it for the work required to fix it,not too mention the money required.
The parts can be found,not too worry about that.
But,getting into those wire chases and making darn sure theres no bad wires further on down the line is going to be tough.
I have brought coachs back from the dead,but i have always shied away from anything with the word "burned" attached.
By the time you buy this coach and fix it and all that you can probably buy a ready to go LXI and be having fun,instead of sweating down in Fl working on it.

Thank you for the insight. Have you physically seen this unit or just pics? If you have seen it can you cast an opinion on cost of repair and current value as is. At this point its more curiosity than anything. I would love a coach of this caliber although bigger than I need and the idea was to get into one with sweat equity replacing some dollars up front. And hopefully knowing exactly what I had when done. Thank you for your responses. Harry

A project coach?
I think they all may be a project coach,in some form or fashion.
How much of a project are you looking for?
