and along with the blinds, and Many of you have been following as recently “Sport Billy”, a coach we had built a little over 5 years ago changed hands and came back through the shop again to get set up for it’s new challenge and it’s new owners. Here is Sport Billy the day it left us 5 years ago
Truly an awesome machine then and here it is in the shop ready for delivery tomorrow to Adrian P.
No wait… lemme show you what we started out with Yep, there she was and here it is now I always though the visor should be satin black…. well it is now Was said Adrian would like a loud horn…. we have a total of 3 compressors with 3 gallons of reserve blowing a 3 horn set of train horns. Of course this is just for off road use! Let me show you some of Sport Billy’s interior. Here is the galley
With the 2 larger doors slide open to access 2 chest style frig/freeze units
As expected, the AV system for this tail gate machine is extensive with this main screen with another in the outside LP compartment, bedroom and dash That’s the stack of manuals under the monitor. A main power switch at the door kiils all 12 volt circuits less the frig units. The electric black-out shades can be backlit white or any color you would like , just turn out the lights
Those along with the blinds, all the AV stuff and the 10′ deploy armless Zip Dee awning
There are something like 9 remotes to run the rig if you ever get bored
Crazy you ask… and your point is??? Hey, ya can’t take it with you and how many things can you own that can do this many things for ya and get the admiration of everyone who sees it?
Now I ask you… what’s in YOUR garage?
Adrian has this and you can’t touch-it
Look, we here at the Co-op have been building rigs like this for decades… that does not mean that’s all we can do. We have customers with less than $20,000 invested sporting very nice coaches. Yes, they do cost to have and maintain… I figure @ $2000 a year after you get it up and reliable …. some years nothing then the motor blows. With a 40 year old machine you just never know but even at that risk a fully restored GMC Motorhome can be called the “Cheapest toy in the box” because you cannot have something this nice with any other machine. You can’t get more looks and more attention with ANY other machine. Folks will pass by a million dollar Prevost to take a look at a machine like this…… hands down!
Today Willie & I are trimming out their vacuum formed angled frig cabinet so lemme get back to that.
We’ll see ya tomorrow. Going to be pretty busy showing Adrian how his coach works… I made him stay the night for that …. everyone should get a full checkout on their GMC before first heading out… Adrian’s will be a little more involved than most. See ya then…..
