The GMC Sunshine Statesmen is the Florida contingent of a group of motor home enthusiasts dedicated to the preservation of the classic GMC Motor home-built by General Motors starting in 1973 with a production of close to 13,000 units ending production in 1978. These unique vintage vehicles were built on a purpose-built chassis (not a production truck chassis) and employed the powerful 455 and 403 Oldsmobile front wheel drive system also used is the groundbreaking Olds Toronado and Cadillac Eldorado cars of the time. The entire coach deriving ideas and concepts from the GM design team, this vintage coach was so far ahead of its time that even today they are a viable alternative to spending big dollars for a new coach.
Welcome to our website, feel free to surf around and see what we are all about and investigate more on the internet about our classic motor-home and I think you will see why we are so enthusiastic about its past and future. You do not have to live in Florida or even own a GMC to be affiliated with our club, we have an associate program where you can enjoy the rally schedule and information put out by club members and since we have many “snowbirds” who come to Florida during the winter months, our rally schedule runs from October through May so these folks can be involved– besides it’s rather hot during the summer down here and most of us sit in front of our air conditioners!
Please contact us if we can be of help, we hope to see you at one of our rallies– oh, and thanks for the visit.
