1976 GMC Motorhome

26' Glenbrook

 

I have owned this motorhome since 1994 and have over $70,000 invested in it. I am meticulous about keeping it serviced and have upgraded most of it's systems through the years. Because the coach has always been kept under cover, the paint is near perfect and shines very well. It currently has 89,000 miles on it.

I was an RV dealer in Lewisville, Texas for 26 years. I could have had any motorhome I wanted, but chose the GMC because of it's great looks, air bag rear suspension for a great ride, huge support base of parts, maintenance and repair facilities, and just because it is the best compromise of mobility and livability in existence. This motorhome is a timeless design that is actually much better now than when it was new.

Because of extensive upgrades and excellent mechanical condition, the new owner will be able to travel with minimal concern for service needs.

This motorhome sold new in 1976 for $29,850. In today's dollars would be about $90,000. A comparable new (rough riding box on wheels) motorhome today will cost well over $100,000 with it's lesser workmanship and unproven systems.

My asking price of $38,000 (obo) is a 58% discount from new which is a bargain since it is actually more reliable with more conveniences than when it was originally delivered to the dealer.
