1981 Wanderlodge 35 Class A RV in Encino, California

Stock #157497

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this RV is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

This 1981 Wanderlodge by Bluebird is an iconic Class A motorhome. It has been a favorite of the rich and famous from its inception in the 1960s until its last production in 2009.

Wanderlodge has been competing in the luxury motorhome market and because of its timeless design and its celebrity appeal owners have been slow to part with these Blue Birds, making them a sought-after commodity in the preowned motorhome market.

This 1981 35 ft. Wanderlodge has been upgraded with a 3208 Caterpillar factory rebuilt engine which only has 5,000 miles of use. This Class A is easy to drive with a five-speed Allison transmission. The owner says this Wanderlodge provides a comfortable, safe driving experience with airbag suspension. It's economical on fuel getting up to 10mpg.

There is no way to overstate the quality workmanship that went into the making of the Wanderlodge. Blue Bird was the fourth-largest manufacturer of school buses in the United States before its entrance into the motorhome market. This background in heavy-duty steel construction is one key to the Wanderlodge's success. With a 20-gauge steel roof; 14-gauge steel floor, roof bows, headers and stringers; and 16-gauge steel side panels, this motorhome is nearly indestructible. In the rare case that anything should need repair, most of the Wanderlodge's parts are shared by Blue Bird's bus fleet, so they are relatively inexpensive and readily available.

The chassis of this 1981 Wonderlodge is very clean with no rust. There are many classic Bluebird symbols throughout branding this classic RV. This high appeal RV makes for a great conversation piece throughout your travels.

The interior is nostalgic with many unexpected features such as built-in vacuum cleaner system, Insta Hot drink water, built in blender and intercom system from the cockpit to the rear of the coach. It also has a microwave, oven, stove and refrigerator/freeze. You'll find everything you need for daily living as well as a few extras for entertaining such as a stand-alone ice maker.

You can park anywhere you desire with this self-contained Wanderlodge 35. The Kohler Generator, 210-watt solar system, and the 180 lbs. of propane make boondocking very doable while traveling.

There's plenty of room for everything you need for any length trip. The luggage roof rack provides additional storage for all your toys and gear. Plus this Wanderlodge is set up to tow heavy loads as well.

Take this opportunity to scoop up this rare find in this 1981 Wanderloge 35. A recent owner who finally purchased his own Wanderloge says, "It's a design that needs no improvement -- this is what makes the Blue Bird Wanderlodge a classic ride."
