Remember “The Urban Assault Vehicle” from the 1970’s cult movie,
“Stripes” with Bill Murray? Well, this is it!

Historical info:

It’s the Blue Angels and The A-Team rolled into one, a low and sleek sports coach that stunned the RV industry when it launched in late 1972. Today, exactly thirty-two years after production stopped, the GMC Motorhome is becoming a cult icon.
The GMC is the muscle car of the RV world. It holds the land speed record for motorhomes, clocking 106mph at Bonneville last year. It’s been immortalized several times as a Hot Wheels toy.
It’s even had a movie career, starring in the 1981 Bill Murray comedy Stripes. But for those of you who grew up in the 70s, the GMC will always be known as Captain America’s van.
That’s pretty remarkable for an RV that only had a six-year production run. But there are many, many remarkable things about the GMC. For starters, it was the first RV created and built by an automaker—and to this day, no other automaker has taken that risk.

My GMC 23’ info:

Because my below GMC is the last of the 23’, big engine GMC’s it is VERY easy and peppy to drive. It literally floats on its air bags and is SUPER smooth. It handles like a van and can navigate even the tightest suburban cul-de-sacs!! Unlike a 26’ GMC or other motorhomes you are NOT land locked looking desperately for an “out”!!! I know, as I also own a 40’ diesel pusher. Driving my pusher I am constantly looking for a way out BEFORE I even attempt to drive down a road or enter a shopping center! But not with my Hot Rod GMCJ Piece of cake!!!
We even load up a dozen friends and view the winners of the local Christmas Light Home contest every year without fear of getting stuck (land locked) in a typical, suburban, tract house neighborhood. Try that in any other Motorhome!
This “blast from the past” is rattle free and turns heads everywhere!
