Prevost vs Bluebird

What are the major differences with these two buses?

Provost chassis are built for over-the-road motor coaches. Bluebird chassis were modified school bus chassis. Both are heavier built than most RVs, with steel frame and siding to be safer for passenger protection. New, a Provost is much more expensive a chassis and conversion.

Both are built on heavy chassis. They my use the same engine.
Prevost sends there chassis to someone else to do the coach built ....Marathon
Blue Bird did all there coach build in house.
Prevost is still being made. Blue Bird got out of the coach businesses around 2009-10
Go to the Wonderlodge Owners Group.... WOG web site and there you will
find a lot of good information. For Prevost you can go to the Prevost Gurus
web site.
I really like my 1989 WB Wanderlodge.

Just for fun, as I don't live in this income level:

Prevost (not Provost) is the brand of over the road buses made by the Prevost Car Company of Quebec (A subsidiary of Volvo?). https://www.prevostcar.com/

Bare bus "shells" are provided to "Approved Convertors" and you purchase completed products from them:
