SOLD! | 1977  Royale 26’
OR | $28,000 reduced 6-11-19 | $31,900 listed 5-15-19 | 152,500 miles | SOLD 9/4/19

I have been privileged to be the second owner of this beautiful GMC motorhome. It was purchased in 1993, in Garden Grove, CA, from a widow who told of their wonderful travels, but had little useful vehicle information, other than, “it was always kept under a carport.” However, the husband’s log book indicated he had kept up on maintenance, repairs, and made no important changes to the vehicle.

Starting with 93K miles on the vehicle, my wife and I brought it home to Portland, Oregon. We kept it under a large tarp for the first year while we built its own RV garage. The replacement engine, an Oldsmobile 455, has had plenty of power, so we have not made extensive powertrain upgrades. The vehicle handles and tracks very well, so we have not made extensive alterations to the suspension. The paint’s appearance is great, but I can see that a stylish design would really bring out the vehicle’s beauty.

The interior has been enhanced, however, as our goal was to maintain the GMC’s design ambience, and to show off the homey beauty of the Coachman walnut interior. This coach has more interior storage space than any other GMC I have seen. With the table folded down, the living area is extremely spacious. As this Royale model was the top-of-the-line, party-model, the bedroom is larger than in other GMC models.

After 10 years of hoping my wife’s interests might change and praying for my eyesight to improve, it is now time to free myself of quarterly engine warm-ups and maintenance duties, — and allow another family to enjoy this wonderful vehicle.



SOLD! | 1973 Canyon Lands
CO | $12,000 or best offer | listed 7-26-19 | sold 8-26-19
This is a mechanically sound vehicle that runs and drives great. It has the 455 Oldsmobile Toronado engine, the odometer is at 71,598 miles, the tires have about 80% rubber and it has a 4000W Onan generator.
The following list of items have been done recently.
  • Installed Converter
  • New Kitchen Faucet
  • New Water Lines
  • New Fresh Water Tank
  • New Alternator Belt
  • New Air Compressor for Rear Suspension
  • Repaired Air Tank
  • New Battery
The motorhome needs a new windshield, curtains or blinds on all windows and new carpet or flooring. One cabinet door needs a new hinge and one cabinet door needs a new latch. The refrigerator/freezer is 110 volt so you might want to replace it with a 3-way unit. The stove works fine, but should be upgraded along with the kitchen sink. The bed in the rear is a full size bed, but could easily be changed back to twin beds if preferred.  This unit will take some work to restore, but will definitely be worth the effort. Any reasonable offer will be considered. Thanks for looking!

SOLD! | 1977 Coca-Cola GMC Motorhome – 26′
WA | $8,700 | listed 8-13-19 | sold 8-19-19
Rocket V8 403 cu in (6.6L) original Oldsmobile Toronado engine
VIN: TZE167N101883
This motorhome was customized for Coca-Cola in 1977. It has a lower profile and is lighter than previous versions. This easy to drive motorhome has it’s original Oldsmobile Toronado engine.
Between 1977-1978, GMC released these Coke motorhomes. Unfortunately, one of the previous owners removed ALL of the Coke memorabilia.
The interior is clean and in good condition. The original Coke furniture was replaced by Palm Beach furniture, but the rest of the interior is original except for updated flooring and a new toilet. The exterior is in fair condition and it appears to be the original paint. The engine is original except for a few parts and it does run. All of the motorhome systems are original down to the air bags, but it does have newer tires. The odometer reads, 37,017, but it doesn’t work.
I really love this motorhome and it’s original vintage features, BUT I know it needs a full restoration. That’s why I’m selling it. Because of lack of funds, I am unable to restore this amazing and unique vehicle.

SOLD! | 1976 Eleganza II
BC, Canada | Asking price $10,000 USD | listed 7-26-19 | sold 8-14-19 ($12,000 Canadian)

I bought this coach as a project last spring. I was getting close to finishing the restoration when my wife said: “Find one with twin beds.” As I am sure you know: “Happy wife; happy life “. So I just bought a ’77 Royale with twin beds.

I searched for over a year before buying this Eleganza because I really wanted a rust/rot free project. According to the very nice lady I bought her from she was new in Chico, California, next in Sacramento, California and last in Grass Valley, California.

TONS of quality work completed. Lots to finish as well.

Completed:
Owner #3 had previously spent about $7,000 on the motor ( runs/drives sweet and quiet), roof leaks (Western Country RV, Kelowna), new vent covers, new air bags (supplies/installed Applied GMC), new brakes, repack bearings, 7 new Firestone 16.5” tires, complete engine and transmission service, belts, hoses, etc (three day job for Tom’s Automotive Grass Valley, California), new radio with Serius satellite radio, gps capability and a hard wired back up camera (really neat..when the radio is off the screen retracts, looks original), new grill (supplied by Cinnabar installed by Fenders auto body), new holding tank, water tank, macerator discharge system (supplied by Applied GMC installed by Western Country RV), new water pump and fuse system supplied and installed by Western Country RV), and a used kitchen but new plumbing installed by Western Country RV. They also just certified the electrical, water and gas systems.

The ceiling front and rear caps and the air conditioner face plate have been rebuilt and painted (they look great!), a complete set of upper cabinets are ready to install, I have a complete set of used ceiling panels that are good enough to install but I was just going to use them as patterns.
I had a spectacularly comfortable mattress custom made.

To be finished:

Ceiling, flooring, seating and table. I have a ton of stuff/parts.

I have driven this coach about 7000 miles in the last year. From California to British Columbia to the GMCMI convention in Amana, Iowa (I was the one that had to wear a snowmobile suit to keep warm in my empty motorhome in the snowstorm) to Portland and back to British Columbia. She has never let me down so far.

I have many more photos etc.

SOLD! | 1976 Eleganza II with 2010 Mini Cooper and Tandem Bicycle
WI  | $39,500 | listed 6-6-19 | sold 6-23-19 | SOLD IN TWO WEEKS!

This fully furnished combination is a stylish way for a couple to travel and live aboard for months at a time. In 2014 the coach underwent a complete renovation that replaced the original “sleeps six” configuration with one designed for two. The interior is bright and spacious with contemporary appliances, finishes, and lighting. The exterior has a high quality paint job to accent its classic lines. For stops along the way, the Mini Cooper and tandem provide enjoyable, redundant transportation.

For five years and 35,000 miles the rig has served us splendidly on several coast-to-coast sojourns, a circumnavigation of Lake Superior, and four summers of seasonal camping in Minnesota and Wisconsin. It attracts people, especially at gas stations and RV parks. The coach has 111,000 total miles and was appraised at $45,400 by Applied GMC. It is eligible for permanent Wisconsin Collector license plates (no annual fee) and comes furnished with everything needed to travel except food. The Mini Cooper has 53,000 miles on the odometer, which doesn’t record while being towed. It’s a hardtop with sunroof, heated seats, and 6-speed stick shift. The tandem rides on the coach rear bumper and is a classic beach cruiser with comfy seats, 21-speed shifter, and fat tires.  Full details for everything are available on request.

SOLD! | 1973 Painted Desert – 23′
AZ | REDUCED TO $16,000 on 3/30/19 – $18,000 | listed 1-15-19

455 engine with approx. 183,000 miles. Note: Blackstone Laboratories performed an oil analysis in 2015 at 175,000 miles. Their report: “The only mark in the second report for this big block Olds is once again for high viscosity. No worries, though; as you know, that’s what Lucas will do to a fill of oil. Wear is actually in better shape than it was when we first saw this engine back in 2012, and it didn’t take a much shorter oil run to get it. Iron and lead, especially, are now sitting close to just half of what we see on average from this type of engine (as a reminder, universal averages show typical wear for oil run about 2,500 miles[ ) ]. Nothing looks like a problem here at an impressive 175,594 miles!” (Test results available.)

The interior of the coach is essentially as it came from the factory and not in need of replacement. It is ready to get in and go!

SOLD! | 1976 Glenbrook
TX | $32,900 | listed 11-5-18 | sold 11-8-18 (3 DAYS!)

In August 2016 when I located a “barn find” 1976 GMC Glenbrook with 18,000 miles on the speedo in Dumas, TX, I expected that after much work and expense my wife and I would enjoy several years (I will be 80 in February) of traveling in our stunning vehicle. Unfortunately, the GMC is ready to go but my wife is unable to travel in her. So my aim is to find a good home for her (the GMC, not my wife). I can provide invoices showing $42,000 invested in her plus many of my own hours. The unit is in Dickinson, TX. The VIN is TZE166V100327.

NEW: seven tires, fuel pump, water pump, headlamps, clearance lights, radiator hoses, oil cooler lines, steering stabilizer, steering gear, drive belts, exhaust system (with s.s.), front calipers and hoses, rear wheel cylinders and hoses, master cylinder and vacuum booster, six shocks, rubber fuel lines, batteries, parking brake cable, four rear hub seals, fresh water tank and sending unit, fan clutch, and heater hoses.

REBUILT: carburetor, fuel tank, steering pump, fresh water pump, and radiator

EXTERIOR: full paint and added fiberglass bumpers and visor and RAGUSA entry step.

INTERIOR: new laminate floor, new carpet in cockpit, new headliner, new counter top and galley faucet, new mattress, re-upholstered cockpit seats and divan/bunk beds with ultra suede. Re-upholstered dinette seats, dinette wall, and cockpit seat arms in leather-like vinyl. All lights now LED. Two front side windows have Levelor cordless cellular window treatments.

  • 17,164 mi. Speedometer turned over one time.
  • 403 engine has 3310 Holly carb with vacuum secondaries, Edelbrock intake manifold, chrome valve covers and air cleaner. Runs great.
  • Tranny rebuilt by that guy in Memphis who also put in lower ratio final drive. This upgrade will put you over the hill or mountain ahead of all when caravaning.
  • Radiator needs repair due to wrong pressure cap on last trip, therefore this coach will need to be towed.
  • American Eagle polished aluminum wheels with 24k gold hubs. WSW tires were original BFG raised white letters with white walls buffed in by Discount Tire & Tucker White-Walling of Lakewood Colo., lets not forget that the last few GMCs made had WSW Generals.
  • Super (Buick type) engine air intakes (inlayed fiberglass) my design.
  • Pedestal mirrors on front of coach. Inlayed fiberglass, my design.
  • Rectangular headlights with driving lights in place of parking/directional lights, inlayed fiberglass fender flairs including rear skirt and fiberglass bumper covers front and rear. These three items were from a Florida company. The bumper covers brought the coach into the “90”s. and I inlayed the flairs.
  • Three directional lights on each side of grill, my choice.
  • Spare tire cover, fiberglass from that Florida Co. Contains two spares
  • Two large storage compartments (fiberglass, my design) inlayed into fiberglass cover on rear bumper. Driver’s side has separate locking compartment for dump hose.
  • Interior is standard Coachman rear bath. New original air bags installed three and a half years ago. I bought these from a St. Louis Co. some time ago and kept them in stock.

SOLD! | 1978 Eleganza
NJ | $9,000 OBO | listed 10-25-18 | sold 10-27-18

We are offering up for sale our 1978 Eleganza GMC motorhome.  We purchased the motorhome from the Salvation Army while it was still located at the home of the original owner in June of 2014.

This appears to be a very low millage coach, the owner told us he only took it out a “few times” because his wife did not like it.

I fixed up the motorhome so my family could take it on trips replacing all the parts needed to make the coach a safe and enjoyable place to stay.  Replaced are all the usual suspects that would wear out if a coach was sitting for a long period of time.  Including

  • Front Bearings (With grease zerks)
  • New Brakes (80mm up front)
  • New fuel lines
  • new fuel pump
  • extremely mild carb rebuild (more like a refresh)
  • new carpets
  • replaced head liner
  • installed some entertainment items
  • new tires
  • new air bags
  • Stainless Steal hot water tank

There are many more maintenance items I am not listing, but the bottom line is this a relatively clean ready to roll coach.  Title is clean, insurance and registration are current.  The coach is ready to drive to its new home.

What I would replace if I was keeping it.

  • The old windshield are “fogging” its not terrible but the only way to repair is is to replace them
  • All gauges but the speedo are intermittent.
  • I would reupholster the couches, perhaps turn the rear set into a bed.
  • The lighter color paint cold use a good treatment with a rubbing compound.

We moved and no longer have room for the coach.


SOLD! | 1975 Clasco
CO | $33,000 | listed 7-31-18 | sold 10-26-18

If you are interested in owning one of the great classic GMC’s, shop around first and look at all  the others then look at the one I have to offer.  Mine is a 1975 Palm Beach that was completely redone by Clasco Manufacturing Corporation in the mid 1990’s.  The interior was gutted and redesigned with a dry bath, separate shower, twin beds in the rear, all white cabinetry and white faux leather couch and dining booth seating with matching driver and passenger seats.   The dash is after market with a full complement of instruments.  The ceiling is a beautiful suede.  The house air conditioner was recently replaced as was the two ceiling vent fans.  The six gallon electric hot water heater is relatively new as is the water pump.  The macerator pump was replaced this Spring.  The windows were replaced with the modern new style frameless deep tint.  The kitchen has a three burner propane range and oven, looks like it had never been used, a bar style sink with a high faucet, and a microwave above the refrigerator/freezer.  There is a TV/DVD with a very efficient roof mounted King antenna.  The following Ragusa items are installed, door step, door stop hook, screen door, license plate bumper step, entrance door handle, rear ladder kit with roof rack, rear sliding battery tray and a front double battery tray.  There are struts to hold up both the generator door and the propane tank door.  The exterior body paint was done at the time of the Clasco renovation with their signature pearl paint, the clear coat has some minor defects, the front has a few rock chips, the lower panel was recently painted with Rhino lining to prevent rock chips, the roof was also Rhino lined to reseal and prevent water leaks.

The coach is powered by a 455ci Olds Tornado engine that has approximately 20,000 miles since a complete rebuild.  It has Thorley headers  and 3″ exhaust with either 370 or 410 final drive.  Tires are Michelin’s, 6 with less than 4,000 miles, mounted on Alcoa 16″ rims.  Thru bumper hitch is complete with Roadmaster all terrain tow bar.

Comes complete with original owners manual, work orders, and invoices.  Several spare parts if wanted.  We began our rving in a GMC, traded for a diesel pusher and owned it for several years, then down sized to this GMC, I will say in all honesty, this is the nicest of them all, it rides and handles better than the others.  Reluctantly, at 86+ year young, I am succumbing to my wife’s wishes and hanging it up.  $33,000 is a very fair price for this unique treasure.


SOLD! | 1973 Glacier
VT | $11,200 | listed 5-9-18 | sold 10-8-18

An Indiana GMC Motorhome formerly owned by (Denny Gruse) till 1st quarter of 2017 purchased and driven to Vermont in April of 2017.  Attended three rallies in 2017 with it and attended a family reunion on the western shore of Lake Michigan returning through Canada to Vermont. We put more than 5000 miles on it last year and loved the experience, just trading up to a 1977 Kingsley. Work done on this coach while owned by Denny Gruse is outstanding. We have done our best to continue to maintain it and improve it with everything we have done to it.  Please see below for all the details. Mileage is somewhere in the 130,000 mile range.  I can get the exact mileage.  Interior is pretty close to original.

This document is meant to serve as reference material related to history and current condition of the 1973 GMC motorhome affectionately known as “Shamu”.

HISTORY

  • Unfortunately…very little is known about the history of this unit. I purchased it from a gentleman close to Mooresville, IN in 2013.
  • This man had no history whatsoever on the coach and did not have any contact information for the previous owner(s).
  • I never pursued it any further and did not try CarFax or anything like that.
  • The gentleman I purchased her from had two usable coaches and one parts coach. He decided to place both the good coaches on the market and they would keep the one that didn’t sell first. I spoke with him about a year after the deal and that was, in fact, what he did.

UPGRADES/REPAIRS/DISABLES COMPLETED BY PREVIOUS OWNERS…

  • House water pump replaced.  Pump works fine but is difficult to prime unless fresh water tank is completely full. I have looked for air leaks but have not found any. Pump is located under rear mattress and a pain to get to.
  • New 2 way refrigerator installed at some point. Works on 120V and propane. Performs great on both.
  • Aftermarket stereo system installed at some point. I never messed with it other than to see if it was hooked up. I think there is a switch for it on the right side of the dash?
  • Mechanical fuel pump was abandoned in place and an electric pump that was installed back by the tanks under the coach. It is a lousy installation.
  • Windows had been resealed and no leaks were ever noticed.
  • One bedroom window screen was missing and not replaced.
  • Bunk bed swing brackets were removed and missing. Eyes are still in ceiling.
  • Plastic trim around windows has been replaced with oak wood trim.
  • Coach has been repainted. Not great due to surface prep.
  • Preheat hoses to water heater were bypassed for unknown reason. It is not for a leak in the water heater though.
  • A/C compressor belt was removed. Never checked out for reason why.
  • Cruise control servo to carb rod is missing. Never checked out.
  • Generator was replaced with a different Onan 4KW unit. Basically the same unit as was original but it is not drawer slide mounted.
  • Additional black tank drain valve added for an unknown reason. I have been leaving it open for convenience and have not seen any leaks.

UPGRADES/REPAIR COMPLETED BY ME…

  • Trailer hitch installed. Light duty…2000# pull capacity. 1 7/8 ball. Std 4-wire light plug.
  • Front and Rear bumper blasted and powder coated.
  • Large original propane tank replaced with small grille style tank to provide more storage. Original tank is available if desired.
  • Complete house water system was tested for leaks (one found and corrected), and disinfected.
  • All 4 new rear wheel bearings.
  • All new rear brakes including hardware.
  • All new rear stainless brake hoses.
  • Several sections of brake line replaced with new.
  • New KYB rear gas adjustable shocks installed.
  • 4 new air bags installed.
  • New Viair compressor installed. Pressure switch controlled with on/off switch on air control panel. Air tank blasted, painted, and checked for leaks. Compressor is wired directly to battery and fused. Fuse is located in-line under right hood panel.
  • All new air control system installed including paddle switches, hoses, DOT fittings, pressure relief valve, gauge, panel, and Schrader valves on bags. Air bag system is now manually adjusted as opposed to the automatic system. Simply set both sides to the desired ride height and maintain those pressures. We always traveled at about 85psi on each side.
  •  New master cylinder installed.
  • New front wheel bearings and seals installed. These bearings should be serviced about every 25000 miles. They have only 2000 on them.
  • New front brake calipers and pads installed.
  • New front brake hoses.
  • Front wheel wells vented to reduce engine compartment heat.
  • New upper and lower radiator hoses.
  • New water pump and alternator belts. A/C belt is not on.
  • New Thorley ceramic headers installed along with new “y” pipe and Dodge diesel muffler. Remainder of exhaust is stainless steel.
  • New front KYB gas shocks installed.
  • 2 fuel fill stub hoses replaced. Remainder of stubs appear to be good.

UPGRADES DONE BY CURRENT OWNER…

  • Replaced 4 rear tires…April 2017, currently have 5,000 miles on them.. original steel wheels blasted and powder coated by previous owner.
  • Upgraded “buzz box”/DC converter battery charger with latest technology “smart charger” with capacity for solar if wanted.
  • Upgraded all inside 12v lighting to new LED bulbs.
  • Bunk bed hinge mechanism. Hinges and brackets have been located and purchased.
  • Purchased and installed three new 12v batteries, two of which are deep cycle.
  • New regulator for the water inlet. Replaced the copper from the new regulator to behind the cabinet with pex.
  • Running lights on top of coach front and back, new bulbs, and all new gaskets.
  • Resealed all roof penetrations, vents, AC units with Dicor self leveling lap sealant.
  • New battery cables for front and rear batteries.
  • New exhaust for Onan generator quieter operation.
  • Rewired land power line with new 50amp plug adapter.

Motorhome spent much of the past two decades in the back of a warehouse in Milwaukee. Acquired the motorhome four years ago to use as sleeping quarters on our hunting land in northern Wisconsin. Aside from basic cleaning and minor tune up, didn’t need to do much to get it running well enough for the drive from Milwaukee to northern WI. It has sat in the yard there since then. Starts ok, but definitely needs new tires. Not sure what else needs attention mechanically. Since we are using it less than we anticipated, we’d like to find it a better home. Located near Antigo, WI.

SOLD! | 1976 GMC Transmode
AR | $9,500 $17,500 | listed 7-11-18 reduced 8-7-18 sold 8-16-18

This Transmode was originally used as a commercial vehicle and was updated to be used as our game day tailgate and race day travel cruiser.  There is not a kitchen other than a microwave, small sink and refrigerator as all of our cooking was grilling, crock pots and small propane burners.  It is not set up as an overnight camper but if one wanted to convert the rear seating area to a bed it could be easily done and the bench which was used for “overtime” tailgating has been used as a bed. Please, if you are looking for a rig to take to the mountains for a month keep shopping unless you want to continue with making it a full time camping RV.  If you are looking for a weekend event rig, keep reading..

I purchased this Transmode in 2016 from the owner in Prior Lake, Minnesota who had possession of it for about 10+ years.  He purchased this classic from his employer who had an excellent record of maintenance, keeping various receipts and details back to 1983.  The Prior Lake owner relayed to me that this originally was used as a mobile display/event cruiser for Interstate Batteries; whatever it’s previous life, I’m certain the walls have stories.

I brought it to Joplin, Missouri for paint, engine work-over and a complete remodel of the interior.  This process took about 18 months and was finished just in time for my son’s senior college football season in September, 2017.  We road tripped from Missouri to Michigan and continued to perform upgrades as the travel demanded.  We have touched, worked on, and performed maintenance on much of this rig.  I used two shops for mechanical work, one in Joplin and the other, Cinnabar Engineering, in Sandusky, Michigan – they know their product and care about high quality.  I wrote a lot of checks over the previous 30 months of ownership and here is a summary of what we have done starting with a complete tear out of the interior:

  • New Exterior paint
  • New Interior  (Entire rig was stripped to the frame.  Dash is original. Captain’s seats are not original but in good shape.)
  • Rebuilt cabinetry.  Added regular fridge and microwave.
  • Re-upholstered benches (3)
  • Added new lounge chairs (2)
  • Replaced cab carpeting and rear deck carpeting
  • Installed new engineered laminate wood flooring
  • Installed new toilet
  • Installed new Dometic 15000 BTU Duo Therm Brisk 2
  • Installed new LED lighting through cabin
  • Refinished headliner (don’t ever take these out if you want to maintain your sanity)
  • Six (6) new Firestone tires and new hub caps – 6 wheel alignment
  • Reworked rear brakes
  • Replaced wheel bearings on D2, D3, P2, P3
  • Installed new front shocks
  • Replaced/reworked exhaust system – before muffler and back to tailpipe
  • Re-configured oil dipstick to original position
  • Replacement engine has approximately 7K miles on it, installed by owner in Prior Lake MN.
  • Replaced fan clutch
  • Replaced starter
  • Replaced batteries
  • Air bags are adjusted manually with plain old Schrader valve, hardware for electro-ride is available.  I found that for my purposes this worked best for my needs.

With all that work, this does need a generator and the front dash air is also not in service. I did not try to work on this as Autumn in Michigan did not call from A/C. I’m out of time on repairs but this rig is miles ahead of where it was when I purchased and it is ready for a new adventure. It rides great, runs great, burns no oil and has no fluid leaks. Perhaps it is your next great adventure?! This rig is garaged in Northwest Arkansas.

MT | $17,400 $27,900 | listed 3-27-2018 – lowered on 7-17-18 – sold 8-10-18

This beautiful golden, yellow coach was my Dad’s. He purchased it in June 2012, and in April 2014 had Billings RV install a brand new Olds 455 LB engine and transmission. $13,795 worth of work and mechanical upgrades were done at that time: new motor, transmission, batteries, belts, exhaust manifold, filters…. There are only 542 easy miles on this new motor, and 54,803 actual miles on the chassis. I lost my Dad in June 2015. This coach has been thoughtfully kept, stored and maintained with the change of seasons. I have taken it out on a few short trips to the mountains – parked her beside Beartooth Lake, fished, and listened to the wind in the tall pines of Montana. She runs great and is a fine, solid coach. I believe the paint is original and looks nice, tires have moderate wear and have good miles left on them, Alcoa wheels, airbag system inspected and updated when the new motor was installed, Onan generator (6000 watts, 115 volts), roof top air conditioner, ceiling fans, storage pod and ladder, entry step, updated upholstery on couch and leather-like upholstery on captains seats, newer carpet and headliner, dash curtain and day/night pleated shades in good operating condition, complete bath (sink, shower and commode), very comfortable newer mattress, and owners manual. Clean and lovingly kept. This beautiful coach is ready to go, ready for the next adventure, ready to travel to clear mountain lakes, fragrant alpine forests, and warm sandy beaches. This classic motor home lives in Montana and I just can’t get away enough to use her.

I have so little spare time to finish this unit, so I am putting it up for sale. There is still some updating that needs to be done on the interior and exterior but it ran well through the Rocky Mountains when I drove it about 500 miles back to my home in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

There have been a number of upgrades that have already been done:

  1. Upgraded driver and passenger seats
  2. Upgraded passenger sofas
  3. New stainless steel water heater and heating element
  4. New foot flush toilet
  5. New pex plumbing
  6. Updated exterior mirrors
  7. New Viair compressor, pressure valve and stainless steel pressure tank
  8. New Sulley air bag system and new lines
  9. New updated dash air valve system
  10. Fuel tanks have been redone.

I had a thorough mechanical inspection done on this unit here in Alberta. I replaced the ignition coil and am just having the mufflers replaced and the wheel bearings re-packed. Got a good start but there are some minor mechanical issues left to be addressed in the near future. I have the list if you are interested. Most mechanics and handymen know little about these GMC Motorhomes up in these parts of the world and I know only enough to get myself in trouble trying to fix it. But, if you’re a good hand at smaller mechanical work and general interior upgrading, this might be the vehicle for you. Everything works, genset, both roof A/C, dash AC, 3-way fridge, water pump, gas range, and oven. The furnace is still something that I haven’t been able get fired.

According to the most recent owner in B.C. the motorhome was originally purchased in Texas and has had a few owners finally ending up with me. I have a briefcase full of literature with operating and repair info but not much ownership history on this unit. It has good bones and there is no rust on the frame members. The motor and transmission are still strong.

I am asking $9800.00 CDN, knowing that there is still some work that should be done to bring this good machine up to a full quality motorhome.

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. Please let me know what else you may need from us regarding this 1978 GMC Motorhome and thanks for your interest.

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.
