1978 GMC Motorhome
Zoom icon


HIGHLIGHTS: Super cool FWD GMC Motorhome! Largely original condition, disc brakes all the way around, 455 V8! Less than 13,000 built over 5 model years!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 1978 GMC Eleganza Motorhome is clean, straight, and true to original form. These GMCs were super cool when new, and even cooler now! The lack of body damage suggests that this van has seen good care its whole life.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The “1970s beige” paint scheme looks very handsome on this motorhome, complemented by the tasteful Alcoa-style wheels. The paint itself is in fair condition, but the clear-coat has seen better days, as shown in the photos.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior of an old RV is almost always the scariest part. This GMC appears to have been kept very true to original style over the years, and presents well for an RV of this vintage. Although it has held up well over the years, there are some areas needing attention as seen in the photos. She's all there though!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: This RV fires right up, and the 455 V8 sounds great! This RV is no doubt geared for highway use, but the 455 V8 is more than enough power to haul this front-wheel drive behemoth around town comfortably. Because these motorhomes are based on the FWD Oldsmobile Toronado design, it feels more like driving a van than an RV! It even has disc brakes on all three axles!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The uniqueness of it, and the adoration RV'ers and classic car enthusiasts alike share for it.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you don't like big ol' 1970s RVs, this is definitely not for you.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The only items noted as non-operational at this time are the radio and emergency brake. Accessories and appliances have not been tested.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Whether you're looking for a great base to build a custom RV or tiny home, or a super cool, well-maintained road trip vehicle for the whole family, you'd be hard pressed to find a better candidate!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.
