GMC Motorhome History
GMC motorhome was inspired by the front wheel drive vehicles that were launched by other manufacturers prior to the GMC RV. 1972 when rumors began to spread that GM was likely to come up with a motorhome, the news soon became official and the vehicle name was announced.
The GMC Motorhome was initially known as TVS-4, (Travel Streamlined Vehicle). Michael Lathers and the GM Design Center had begun with both interior and exterior designs. Twelve designers in total worked day and night to make sketches of the vehicle before the final form was released. Once the sketches were approved by GM upper management, a 1/4 inch tape was used to create the final sketch in order to make designs for the rear and front side of the vehicle.
The General Motors GMC Truck and Coach Division produced the GMC motorhome from 1973 through 1978. At the time, it was the only motorhome built by a major auto brand. This GMC RV was mainly built to offer people a comfortable ride all throughout thus not simply being a camper but also satisfying the needs of motorhome users.
GMC RV Design, Specifications & Features
The design of this vehicle was somewhat radical for the time because it maintained a very low profile along with front wheel drive. The GMC motorhome had a body which was completely integrated, which was divergent from the time as most motorhomes were made by RV manufacturers that built shells on a basic truck chassis.
This GMC RV was designed to accommodate the needs of simple vacationers and full time travelers. In addition, empty shells were supplied to different aftermarket and specialty manufacturers so that they can uplift the interiors. The specialty manufacturers utilized the GMC motorhome shell for custom purposes including ambulance, training facilities and mail delivery vehicles.
