Bringing New Life to a 1980 Bluebird Wanderlodge

312 Roy Green Rd
Mineral Wells, TX 76067

Owner, Brent Ekberg, has taken on a new client who brought in a "1980 Classic" motorhome for an interior upgrade. In a previous interview with Brent, he said "At our shop. I only take in 1 rig at a time and it goes from cradle to grave all in one process." Brent also said that, "This work allows me to focus on a single client at a time and the work at hand."

The below photo essay shows the "Before" pictures and as they progress through this job, more pictures will be published.

1980 Bluebird Wanderlodge 31 FT. - top of the line in 1980.

The before view of the doghouse and cockpit area. Note the tall cover and the notch that is provided for access by the driver

View of the Galley floor before the demolition the color in blue.

After a few hours of work and disassembly, the bare floor is exposed from the rear to the front of the bus

The view from front to rear through the Galley and into the rear of the coach

Disassembly of all fixtures is caringly done and gently set aside. Clean up takes quite a bit of attention to detail to make sure that the floor is free from decades of debris, dirt and dust allowing the new materials to go down without interference.

Please keep checking back. This photo essay will continue in a few days detailing the progress of the refurbishment of the interior of this soon to be outstanding classic Bluebird bus.
