We are new owners of a 1983 37' wanderlodge, which needs body work and new paint. We were wondering if the value of the bluebird being "vintage" will be deminished if the colors are changed. Should we stick to the colors that were generally offered in that time period? Any advice would be greatly appreciated since we are inexperienced with bluebirds. Thank you

there have been quite a few coaches that have gone to an updated color scheme. If I had thebucks- and it will be expensive, I'd get rid of the tired old gold and brown on my coach. Ernie-83PT40 inn Texas

A quality paint job will likely be well beyond $10K. You won't get that back in resale, but it probably will sell faster. I don't know if I would want to paint over 23 year old paint and expect it to last. Look around and you will find some paint schemes that look exceptional, others that missed the mark. I think in the long run it is probably more economical to find a bus with a descent paint job and purchase at the going rate, than to find a bargain bus and have it painted. Assuming all things turn out equal.

In general, the newer the bus, the easier it is for the owner to afford repairs. Their simply more wealthy than the owners to follow...
