Default Wanderlodge XH

We saw this nice ride on I-40 last week on our way out west. The XH stands for extra high.

That's... something. Wonder how tall thing is. I bet they halved their MPG with that lovely addition.

I will gladly bring my Sawzall to WOG if anyone would like to raise the roof on their bird.

And thats why schoolies are not welcome in RV parks.
Not even "tasteful" schoolies.

There was an article many years ago in Bus Conversions magazine about a couple, Lloyd and Wilda Koepke, who converted a schoolie. I think it could pass for an FC. They did their conversion in the mid-90's. Easily the best school bus conversion I've ever seen. I can't believe I still had their picture in my files.

Bet they could have spent less money and gotten a Wanderlodge! That paint job looks awesome!
