Comfort and Convenience

The layout of this GMC features a comfortable set of swivel chairs which lock down for traveling. Across is a sofa that offers great storage underneath and converts to twin bunks. The front seats swivel back to accommodate all those folks who will come to visit you in your new coach.

 

   
     
                       
 

Exterior

From first glance you'll notice that this machine has been meticulously maintained over its years. The original exterior paint still has shine. The expansive areas of tinted glass offer great views and bring in loads of natural light.

Custom Zip Dee Awnings are found on both sides, the drivers side offers just enough for some shade and cover from rain while the main awning makes for a nice shaded patio.

Twin roof-mounted air conditioners keep the insides cool even in hot conditions. The 6k Onan generator can keep these running even while going down the road.

Sandwiched between these units is a storage container perfect for those necessary extras.

The rear bumper has been enclosed using aluminum diamond plate and offers storage for the custom sewer hoses, blocks, and other items you'll need handy.

The aluminum Alcoa Wheels not only add to the coaches looks but by lightening unsprung weight they improve handling.

RAMCO powered remote mirrors help make driving and parking easier.

   
 
       

Interior

When you step inside you realize the quality GM put into these coaches. Even after over 25 years the materials look great and still function perfectly. The louvered all-wood cabinets offer great storage in addition to their great looks. The thinking that went into it is evident as the design incorporates a tremendous amount of space given the small 26 foot length.

   

The Stovetop has been modified with a custom cover that provides support for the combination microwave/convection oven while still allowing acess to a burner.

A Norcold 3-way refrigerator with seperate freezer is an upgrade that offers vast improvement over the original as it keeps things cold no matter what the power source.

 
   

The seating arrangement offers comfort and a great conversation area. The small cabinet houses a 9 inch AC/DC TV and makes a good space for snacks on the road. The rear dinette has been replaced with a queen bed (original dinette included).

Enhancements are numerous and include such things as a Suburban furnace, a gas detector with auto shutoff, and a Fantastic Fan that's thermostatically controlled to maintain an even temperature.

 
               
             
   
                                         
   

The Cockpit

Up front you can see that the driving environment offeers a spectacular view and information galore. Full gauges have been added as well as knock sensors, switches for the additional lights, the Pioneer AM/FM/CD with remote, Cobra CB and more. The seats have spent most of their life with sheepskin covers and the original fabric underneath is still in good shape.

Driving the GMC is an easy task, whether you are going cross country or just to the corner store. The Tornado drive train means this motorhome really drives more like a car and the air suspension adjusts for a variety of conditions and loads.
