GMC Vintage Motorhome

I decided to post a picture of this GMC motorhome I came across while searching out garage sales. It has some similar stylings to the old travcos. "A little known fact is that Travco's sister company, Gemini, built the interiors of the GMC Motorhome between 1973 and 1974 in Mt. Clemens, MI. Production of GMC Motorhome interiors shifted to GM's own factory in Pontiac, MI with the 1975 models" (source: Travco Wikipedia)

The sight of this lovely vehicle has pushed us into overdrive and we are attempting to complete the functional renovations of Myrtle before Burning Man 2009 (end of August 2009!). The most paramount items to fix include; new wheels/tires, install windshield, new windshield wipers, overhaul motor (new rubber hoses, gaskets, etc), and install poly 6 pack. On the interior we need to make the bed frame, buy a new mattress, install front seats and hopefully stain the walls/cupboards, lay the floor tiles, mount the vintage couch we located, and fabricate new closet doors. In a dream world we will have found and installed a kitchen table/chairs.
