Many years ago we went to the Shelburne Museum in VT and saw a similar exhibition, remember it was the highlight of the day! [emoticon]

I was dismayed to see the bastardization of a GMC in this line. It has nothing to do with development and is really only an example of an expensive mistake.

I have seen this coach up close and real personal (they were at one of the GMC events), and while some of the execution is very well done, the plan was not. The couple that got this done ended up donating it because it was not comfortable to either drive or live in and if you knew more about it, you would know why.

They actually got a write-up in the FMCA magazine that made all of the current owners of operational GMCs angry. So much so that the president of GMCMI wrote to the editors and explained what a complete looser this coach had become.
