Wanderlodge M380 -- Standard and Optional Features
Unfortunately, my wife's health has affected her mobility, and the time has come for us to pass this great motorhome on to another.
If you spent a million dollars or even two million dollars you could not purchase a better built motorhome than a Blue Bird Wanderlodge. Don't take my word for this, Google it.
The Coach was built by the Blue Bird Bus Company in Fort Valley, GA. Since 1927 they are the leading manufacturer of safety-first school buses; you've likely seen them around for years.
To quote others. "This is an excellent example of what a coach should be. Forget about riding around in a bouncy fiberglass RV. This is a real bus with higher safety standards than a Prevost, Newell and Van Hool. The Blue Bird Wanderlodge was historically overbuilt." It was reportedly owned by royalty like King Hussein of Jordan and movie stars like John Wayne and Michael Landon (we saw his, he was our neighbor). The M380 is the perfect size, large enough to comfortably live aboard and small enough to get into almost every campground.
The original owner our Coach was a very wealthy businessman who also owned a Prevost and a Newell in addition to an airplane and two large yachts (one 70 feet and another over 100 feet). Our M380 was built as a show coach and he purchased it at an RV show, stored it inside and had it professionally maintained. My wife and I purchased it from him when it was only four years old and have owned it ever since.
Over the years it was rare that we were at a campground and an owner of another brand coach didn't come over to admire the M380, even on occasion saying they should have purchased one rather than the brand new million-dollar plus motorhome they had. I've heard this same story from other Wanderlodge owners too.
Our Coach has always been professionally maintained and serviced. I have all the receipts.
There is also an on-line group of fellow Blue Bird Wanderlodge owners who can help you maintain your coach better than any dealer or manufacturer. The value they provide is enough reason to own a Blue Bird.
Additional features that make this coach a bargain at the price being offered:
Brand new still in manufacturer's wrapping, front and rear replacement slide seals. You will eventually need these. Without them you will have a no-slide coach and the manufacturer will only produce others with a minimum of ten orders; a group of us got together and ordered them.
A brand-new Rixen's hydronic heating system to replace the original Hurricane one. Parts cost almost $9,000 and retrofit and installation thousands more. It provides endless hot water and interior heating with a new control panel inside the coach for all functions; a major improvement over the old one. I love taking long steaming hot showers.
Three Samson TV's: Livingroom/kitchen; Bedroom; and pull out one on a fully articulating arm in one of the bays for outdoor viewing.
A Winegard Travler Direct TV roof mounted satellite dish plus an additional Winegard Carryout G3 portable, auto satellite finding dish, for use when roof mounted one is blocked by trees.
Sea Level Tank Monitoring System
New single valve shower control (pull out for on, turn for hot/cold, push in for off) a big improvement over the old one; my wife hated the original one.
The sofa was recovered with Ultra leather to match the other seats; the original one was covered in fabric.
The Coach comes fully stocked with everything you need including the following. (Just bring food and clothing)
Two sets of new outside chairs including two brand-new zero gravity recliners
Tools and spare parts
Extra oil and radiator fluid
Cleaning supplies for both inside and outside of coach including a high-speed wheel buffer.
Two specialty ladders, one a fold up A frame and a telescoping one.
Lots of silverware and kitchen gadgets
Keurig coffee maker
French press coffee maker with electric tea kettle
Dishes, glasses, bowls, place setting etc.
Fully stocked medicine and first aid drawer
Stocked wine draw.
Several high-quality bed sheets and pillows plus comforter.
New slim powerful vacuum cleaner with power floor attachment.
Lots more equipment and upgrades. As we go through the coach, I'll point them out.
The engine and generator were serviced by Cummings in August 2023 with only a few hours on them since.
All new top of the line batteries: Two starter; four house and one generator. Actually, they are going to be installed on November 15th. Plus two battery charger/minders.
Price includes a full tank of diesel (that's $1,000 at local prices- we always keep it full). PLUS a freshly serviced low-milage Mercedes M-320 SUV all-wheel drive with off-road tires (only 2,000 miles on them) and a low/low gearing switch for those real off-the-road needs. It is the last Mercedes that could be towed four wheels down. We are the original owners (have all the records) and have towed it behind the coach for years without any problems. Fly in, hook up the Mercedes to the coach and drive off.
Please, serious buyers only, no dealers, bottom feeders or just curious.
