GMC Motorhomes International Rally
Starts at 5PM on the 26th, and seminars begin at 9:00AM
Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds, Chippewa Falls WI
GMC motorhomes are "classic" motorhomes as they were only made from 1973-78. They were the first front wheel drive, aluminum body made. We get together twice a year in various locations around the United States. Members come from all over the US, Australia, and Canada. Some coaches are in the original condition as others have been restored. It's a unique opportunity for those who love "classic" cars to see these beautiful motorhomes. I'd love to arrange an on camera interview with someone, if it worked out as well as have a camera crew come to our event and talk with some of our folks.
