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

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
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!

adoration RV'ers and classic car enthusiasts alike share for
