Vintage & Old Instruction & Part MANUALS Galore!!

Well, we've been digging around our new to us, 1978 Bluebird Wanderlodge bus and have located dozens of manuals for this 'bird from the original blue prints to the old appliance manuals. 

IF YOU NEED ANY OF THESE, please let us know. We can photograph them and email you. I know how old manuals can be hard to find, but they are oh so helpful in restoring an old RV/Bus.

Anyway, here's a few that we have in our mits. Please ask if you think we might have what you're looking for. They've already been SO helpful to us... we must share the wealth!!
