Seeing as I already have one thats being remodeled, apparently I've become somewhat of a "goto" person when it comes to GMC motorhome things. So I put it to you....

A friend of mine has found a GMC motorhome that needs a home. A 77 Kingsley, the interior has been completely removed for remodeling, including the rear hatch taken off, the closet module is in the house. The only pluses are the exterior paint is newer (Imron) and its been garage kept. All the materials for remodeling are there, just not installed.

So the question for ya'll is, how much would you pay for a GMC motorhome project?

Ya forgot to say what condition the Motor and tranny were in and also the rear suspension, Has it been updated or are the bags even work'in? If not and the motor and transaxle is in fair to good shape..maybe $10,000. If the rear has been reworked an the motor and transaxle are fairly new,then? The price go's up from there.I always liked that model of motorhome but, never could get one when I had the money and /or the model came my way and I didn't have the cash to get with it. It's a turkey shoot if you don't know the seller or history or? Go in low and maybe get lucky. Good luck and let us know how it turns out. Capt.

If that is true, and You have the time, Tools and a place to do the work...Offer 6000 and see if they go away or if that cash in your hand goes $$ to there eyes.I wouldn't as Mine is really more that I wanted to do. But, I'll have a really good home when I'm done. That home could be worth up to over 100,000 when done. I have seen some that was going for that much!!
Good luck and whatever your decision It's your decision, Not anyone else's.Have a good one, Capt.

Had a 76 GMC Eleganza. From what I see and the amount of interior work needing done, offer 8,000. Have to ask on the engine and tranny. May needing a rebuild depending on milage. Engine good for 100k (about). Lots of parts available..it's the labor that can be a killer.
Good luck.
