Uwe,

Part of the reason we traded up from a 74 TT to a 77 TT was to get one with a blonde interior, the four extra feet were nice too.

I understand the idea behind the dark wood, but is does make some units feel cave like. Also my parents had a buick in the 70's with the fake wood paneling and I too am scarred.

I agree on all that cabinet fake wood...it looks really good in my motorhome, and is in great shape. The vinyl trim on the dash is ugly and old looking and will go. The outside stripe is no urgent replacement as it is good shape, but will enhance the sharp look when redone. If I could do the Banks power pack with that big chrome exhaust pipe I would. I am envious of those of us that have unlimited budgets to upgrade with.
I already have the chrome wheel liners that look great, and I have redone my black trim to keep it looking good. I wish I could get those blacked out NASA windows they use on their Airstream, but money is not available for that kind of stuff for me at this point. If I keep this rig a few years who knows? A few projects a year to keep it fresh, and a few to keep it fixed and I will be a "happy camper".
I want to have one that looks as good as that shiny classic Motorhome on our photos page. I won't be polishing it to that point though( at least not real soon..... )

Stripes and Interiors

My mind set on the motorhome is doing what makes sense for you. A lot of the GMC's around are completely redone, others are kept original. They are also classics.

Id say, go for your choice of stripes.

The previous owner covered the wood grain strip on our '84 345 with airstream blue. Looks good (but nearing time to be replaced). I'd do that when I polish it (probably in the same time frame as Alan ..

The interior of my MH is all wood with the exception of the end caps and headliner cabinets. It is not too dark, oak or hickory. Looks very nice, I think. The counter tops are Formica.

My 1969 Overlander has an all wood interior as well. It is a light wood (might be elm, according to a discussion thread on one of the lists a while ago) with a nice grain pattern. We absolutely love it and is the reason we decided not to sell it when we picked up the MH. We keep the TT interior original for the most part, because that what attracted us to the coach. We have redone the upholstery with more modern colors, but it is still nicely coordinated to the other interior tones.

ALANSD....I saw your posting of the 79' motorhome you saw over the weekend. How did you like it with the bright stripes? It looks like it may be carrying the Red, White and Blue theme.

Alan,

Maybe you should consider doing the Astrovan striping! That would really turn some heads. Put an orange jump suit and helmet and you're an AWOL astronaut! Seriously, red, white, and blue would look cool.

the red white and blue striping did not "get it" for me, although its wonderful on the NASA unit. Yes- I am patriotic and proud to be an American!! But I don't want to go that route. The striping on the 79 i saw was redone by someone using a thin stripe of each, and was ok, not great.
I still want to update and yet be classy.
I am also a fan of what a lot of the GMC owners are doing with theirs.But our Airstreams are sooooo much better in every way , of course.

Alan,

Have you considered multiple stripes of different color? Maybe you could mimick the 1993-1996 MH stripes. They look pretty sharp.

Cool Blondes...

What is it abt those STATION WAGONS, with all that false wood grain, I guess U guys bought them just for the practability of the vehicle, being multi usable...so I guess U did'nt let the outside bother U much, as U were NOT alone...lol.
Well have a good 2day Guys...Chris.....

Okay......I found the color. BLUE....I know most have you been saying if you're going to change the color Blue is it. I found a great blue that comes to life. It's made by DuPont. It's called Chromalusion kk700 True Blasberry.

Check it out and see for yourself. I don't know the price, only know when I hold it up to my motorhome everyone says that's the one.

Ken

'cos if it is, I'll back U all the way on that one, for anyone driving one of those BIG camper buses at only 9 M P G, gotta be brave, tell me guys, when U 'em gas-up, U gotta turn the engine OFF...NOT for safety reasons...but because U kinda use MORE gas than the pump can handle...LMAO...Only KIDDING guys...also over here when we blow-up our tyres at the gas station, the service WAS FREE, but as the wheels got BIGGER...it took LONGER to inflate them, thus COSTING the garage MORE in electricity to keep the compressor going...so NOW we have to put a coin in the slot, to get AIR...( TIGHT SODS !!! )...
