Revcon

Welcome Snufy.
I can;t see the pictures you posted, but I am familiar with the Revcon. I was told it began as a improved version of the by then discontinued GMC. Silimar concept, bit bigger. When we had our GMC we'd occasionally see the Revcons too. Good luck with you resurection.

You will need to use an image hosting service like photobucket or similar. It's easy once you get that hang of it. Welcome to vintage RV-ing.

Actually Revcon FWD came before GMC Revcon started in 1968 I think it was started by John Hall designer for Airstream

The 402 was not powerfull enough for the motor home and it was discontinued. About 75% of the 73-78 GMC's are still on the road today. they have a devoted following.
We had one for 14 years and finally moved up to a Airstream Diesel Pusher for more towing power and better fuel mileage.
P. S. They could get stuck on wet grass!
My dad has one. I'll try to get pictures next time I'm out there. He has done a ton of work to it making it better than new, Alcoa wheels, stainless exhaust, all computerized or updated dash and air bags. His next project is to put Howell ignition on it.

Speaking of tow rating, the tow rating of these was very low. I think around 2,000 lbs? He tows a 1991 Suzuki Samurai behind it to keep weight down.

URL is an address out in the internet for a location of a file.

In this case you are supplying the address/location of a picture and then the forum can find it and display it.

There are advantages to supplying a URL to display a picture rather than attaching the pictures (files).

1) Is that the forum does no use any storage (dollars) to be able to display the picture when a URL is specified.

2) You can rape text around the picture. This allows you to tell a story and place the pictures at the correct point in the story rather than all the pictures at the bottom of the story.

This link will tell you How to post pictures

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Glenn
