I went and visited this PT in Oregon yesterday. It was a great trip and I got to meet some wonderful people living in a small town outside Portland. Dawn, the owner, is selling it following the passing of her husband. He was a school bus mechanic and she a school bus driver. A bluebird marriage for the ages!

This bus was his baby and it was impeccably maintained. It is in great shape and even better than advertised. The DD 8v92 engine fired right up and purred like a kitten. No smoke even under hard acceleration. All 3 of the previous owners are known and records for them all are in the blue box. Driving this bus was like a dream. It has plenty of get up and go, and floated up and down the twisting roads through the hills of western oregon. I have now driven 3 Wanderlodges and this was a completely different experience than driving the SP or FC. Effortless and smooth! The bus has been dubbed "Dreamweaver" and it has certainly woven it's way into my dreams!

The inside has been fairly recently updated by Dawn and her husband who have owned the bus for the past 13 years, I think. The upholstery and carpet are in good shape and the leather captain's chairs are flawless. Everything works save the steps and generator slide-out. Newer batteries and tires lower the initial costs to get her ready to take out on the road.

This coach is a great find and will make the new owner very happy indeed!

I'm like Randy and others, I was reading post #1 and thinking, "you are telling others about this one and didn't jump on it yourself?" Congrats. Sounds like a great find. Can't wait to meet you and the new to you bus.
