Thanks for your interest in our 1978 GMC Motorhome and if you have any questions please contact me and I will try to help you as much as I can with the history and specifics regarding this 78 GMC Motorhome. The owner of our company, Mario Coletta, who passed away in July of this year purchased this motorhome between 1983 and 1985, he purchased it from Bob Tasca Sr. who formed Tasca Ford here in Rhode Island. Mario purchased the motorhome with somewhere around 6000 miles on it at the time and it now has 35,000 miles.

Both the exterior and interior of the motorhome has been completely revamped with the interior being taken down right to the studs and remodeled with a modern look and the exterior has had a complete refinishing with the same colors and a similar look as when original.

The engine of the motorhome was fully rebuilt in 2011 by Iden Corp GMC out of Woodbridge, VA, along with adding fuel injection, new exhaust and the installation of a disc brake system on the center axles changing them from drums. Also, the suspension air bag system was replaced. We still have the “repair bible” from Iden Corp GMC which explains all the work performed which can be sent to you in a PDF format.

The sale of this motorhome will also include all the books, manuals and “repair bible” that are in the photos. All systems in the motorhome are in working order, motorhome has always been garaged and kept clean inside and out.

IA | $11,500 | listed 4-21-2017 | sold 5-12-2017

Our family will be moving out of state soon and are unable to take our GMC. Hoping someone can make good use of this camper, as it is in great condition and ready to roll. I purchased it locally in May of 2015 and set about getting all maintenance completed and documented. A list of the major things done in the past two years:

  • Added 7 Alcoa rims and new Cooper Discovery tires.  Tires have approximately 500 miles on them.
  • Upgraded front brakes to 80mm and rebuilt the four rear brakes.
  • Replaced radiator with the Griffin radiator from Jim Buchanan, installed new water pump and fan clutch at the same time.
  • Replaced 3.07 Final Drive with a 3.42.
  • Swapped out original Buzz Box with a PD9270
  • Upgraded to electric wipers with Ken’s kit
  • Installed a wireless backup camera
  • Rebuilt black tank dump valve with Valterra components
  • Had Onan carb rebuilt by Luis Salas at Walboro
  • New fluids, filters, etc
  • New mufflers installed last summer
  • New, leak-free kitchen faucet

Motorhome is in very good condition. Mostly original interior, with the exception of Flexsteel driver and passenger seats, and a permanent bed in back, replacing the rear fold-down seats. Cabin air conditioning works great, dash air conditioning does not. Prior to my ownership, the driver side windshield had been replaced. Passenger side is original and only showing minimal fogging. Zip-Dee awning in very good condition. One of the gas burners has been replaced with an electric coil, so you can cook off camp power if desired. On the monitor panel, the water level and black tank level gauges do not work. Everything else on the interior is in tip-top shape.

Mechanically good.  Has the Olds 455. The transmission has a small, persistent drip around the pan gasket. I installed a transmission drain plug when I first dropped the pan to replace the filter, so much easier and cleaner to change fluid. There is also a small exhaust leak at the front of the passenger manifold.  The manifold is not cracked, just not properly sealing. New exhaust gaskets included.

Motorhome has 78,000 miles on the clock, Onan around 227 hours. Sale includes a very nice, snug cover, lots of extra parts (fuel pump, water pump, etc), full set of manuals, and my maintenance log with all work performed, part numbers used, etc.

This GMC comes with a good Iowa title. It is currently a bonded title, which does not affect the transfer of ownership. The gentleman I purchased it from had owned it for nine years and could not find the title. I went through the relatively painless process with the Iowa DOT to acquire a bonded title.  The bonded designation stays with the title for a total of three years, so one year remaining. A bond has been placed with the State of Iowa.  In the extremely unlikely event someone can prove valid ownership of this vehicle, they would receive the bond, not the motorhome. In 2018, the “bonded” drops off the title and a new title is issued.
