1 owner coach...

https://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/cto/d/1973-gmc-motorhome-time/6487732213.html

Not affiliated with this coach in any way... Just saw it up on Craigslist, and thought it was interesting.

The price seems a bit high. After sitting for 22 years all the rubber needs to be replaced. I see in the picture that it has steel wheels with 16.5” tires.
One should be able to buy a motorhome with the new Alcoa 16” wheels for a bit less.

I like it.
The alien thing not so much.

I think the price is more than fair if it is actually in as good of shape as it appears.
Yes it will need all new rubber, but do that and you've got a beautiful coach under 20K.

"I see in the picture that it has steel wheels with 16.5" tires."

Are those chromed? I have 16" Ford wheels on mine that are the same design, and I would really like them if they were chrome instead of painted. Big difference in the overall look with chrome or highly polished wheels!

I see rust inside where it would be hard to polish, I think they have just been polished.
Any chrome shop should be able to do the wheels relatively inexpensively.

I really can't say what year they are from as I bought them used from a woman up in Williamsburg. IIRC, they were on an F-350 dually chassis with a box on the back. They are not hub centered on the GMC, and I had to cut off the locating pin on the inside of the wheels. I also use 2 or 4 conical lug nuts temporarily to center the wheel before installing and tightening the GMC factory washer-faced lug nuts.

Along with new tires, include new gas lines, new brake lines, new coolant hoses, new batteries. And, the unanticipated little 'gotcha items'.
