1975 GMC Palm Beach Class A Motorhome
26ft of pure 70s style and cool.
This immaculately-restored 1975 GMC Palm Beach is the perfect home for those who appreciate original interiors with attention to detail.
This sleek design features ORIGINAL captains’ chairs that rotate fully to create an entertaining/seating area for 7. A collapsible table between two (also rotating) chairs creates a dining, desk, or playing card area for 1 or 2. The stylish sofa transforms easily into a set of comfortable bunk beds, while the double bed in back converts into a large dining table with banquette seating for 4.
Restored with ORIGINAL 1970s shag carpeting, ORIGINAL green plaid upholstery, with ORIGINAL cabinetry and detailing! This lean green machine is so far out it’s back again.
Maybe you’re a GMC aficionado and would like to raise the doghouse and show your friends your newly installed fuel injector, recently tuned engine, new hoses, break pads and belts... or perhaps you prefer keeping it closed while enjoying the creature comforts inside, such as your Bluetooth sound system with ejection screen and backup camera that was recently installed along with your new, refreshing AC system. When finished, step outside under one of your two striped awnings (full awning not pictured) and relax in the shade while enjoying the new paint job that brought your GMC back to its ORIGINAL glory.
This chic number is as suitable for a family of four vacationing down the American open road, forming memories and collecting stories, as it is a permanent home for a wandering Bohemian soul. Perhaps even the perfect guesthouse, adorning your property in all its 70s glam while serving as a friendlier alternative to building. The opportunities are endless when you’re the proud owner of a beautifully-restored, unmissable piece of American automotive history like the Palm Beach.
