Last year of the great GMC Motorhomes and this is the sought after and rare 23' version. Fits nicely in a driveway, parking spots and is easy to navigate through parking lots.

  • 403 engine runs strong
  • 82,500 miles
  • Electronic ignition, previous owner put a petronix electronic ignition on it to make it more reliable
  • Engine was gone over, new tune up and fluids, would not hesitate to drive it cross country the way it sits.
  • Chrome headers and a nice exhaust
  • Rear suspension airbags look in great condition. Dual air pumps.
  • 4k Onan generator only has 300 hours and runs good, previous owner converted to electronic ignition
  • All 7 wheels are matching Alcoas that polish up nicely. Tires from 2012
  • Batteries (3) replaced 2012
  • New black and grey holding tanks and plumbing
  • AC's, house and cab work
  • Self igniting water heater and house heater work good
  • Paint still looks great

  • Original 4 Burner Magic Chef stove with oven

-- Upgrades --
  • 60 watt solar system that keeps all the batteries topped off even when RV sits for long periods of time.
  • Installed flatscreen DigitalTV/DVD player with HDMI input
  • Upgraded tv antenna and booster for Digital TV
  • Kenwood DDX719 radio with full flat screen has monitor to hook up backup camera. I have camera, I just never got to installing it. Has bluetooth so you can listen to tunes off your smartphone.

  • Rear suspension airbags upgraded with Schrader & shut off valves on airbags
  • Pull-out faucet for kitchen sink
  • All interior bulbs replaced with LED bulbs

Some issues
  • Front seats are a bit higher than stock
  • Refrigerator interior igniter not working, but pilot lights from outside
  • Ceiling liner - sticky shelf liner material - came off the ceiling panel in front behind the drivers seat and is coming off in bathroom. Easy fix with new material or removal and sanding of mahogany ceiling panels.
  • Apparently there was a minor leak in the ceiling at some point so there is some water discoloration in ceiling and wall panels near entry door. leak was fixed.

Reason for selling - I purchased this beauty (my dream coach) in January with the idea of taking it on many trips this summer. After a few short trial trips with it, I've realized that the beds are just too cramped. I'm 6'2". So now I'm looking for a 26' GMC with a fixed bed in back. If bed size isn't a concern for you then you will love this coach. I wish I didn't have to sell it.
