Description & More Pictures

#UPDATE 10/10/2018: I have been combing through receipts and other documentation including old motorhome club registers and I have verified this is an Olds 455ci engine. It contains forged internals, a Comp 260/260 cam, headwork, and other work to the engine builder’s spec for a motorhome chassis/weight.

1978 GMC Motorhome 26′ – Royale

This is a fine example of a classic coach made by GMC!
Imported from Washington in 2012 to Vancouver, BC. Then driven to Calgary, and then most recently to Saskatchewan on a family vacation.

These Class-A GMCs came with the Oldsmobile 403 ci (6.6L) and TH-425 Transaxle making it a FWD layout.
They had rear air suspension on bogies which allows for a very low floor and plenty of interior space. Collector vehicle status as it was registered in BC, 12,921 produced by GMC. The 1978 GMC Royale number less than 1000 and were considered by many to be the top of the line. I would not be kidding to say that people just walk up and begin chatting about this unit every single time we are out. Even if you have no interest in the GMC Motorhome much more information and folklore can be found online with a simple google search, so have fun
