A longstanding tradition in the recreational-vehicle manufacturing world is to take an existing heavy or super-duty truck chassis and simply have a coachbuilder add the home on top. The practice continues today: Even the finest and most deluxe land yachts have a truck or bus chassis under their fancy skin and simulated alligator hide interiors.Continue reading #HISTORY/MOTORHOME: Evolution of the 1973-1978 GMC MotorHome

Canon EOS M50 Mark II + EF-M 15-45mm IS STM Kit (Black) ($699.99)
We use the Canon EOS M50 MK1 as a "C" camera here at mymotorhomelife.com.
We use the Canon EOS M50 when a small and portable setup with minimal rigging is needed. A full rig is attached to the EOS M50 SmallRig cage which sports nato-style attachment points. Occasionally, we'll connect a hot-shoe mounted BeachTek 2-channel audio mixer. Video monitoring is either through the built-in EVF or depending on the shooting situation, using an Atomos Shinobi monitor connected to the Canon EOS M50 with a high speed HDMI cable.
This test footage was shot using the Canon EOS M50 in both 1080p HD and 4K modes using an SLR Magic Anamorphot-50 anamorphic adapter attached to a Canon EF 40mm f2.8 STM taking lens which itself was attached to a Canon EF to EOS M Mount adapter. Overall, a very heavy lens setup! This lens configuration was held in place with a SmallRig lens support which itself was attached to the camera rig via 15mm rails from Zacuto. The test footage was edited in Final Cut Pro and quickly graded with Film Convert Nitrate.
The Canon EOS M50 Mark II is only $50 more than our trusted EOS M50 MK 1 but offers a significant upgrade: clean HDMI out for livestreaming or when sending the signal to an external recorder such as the Atomos Ninja V. Canon have improved the autofocus and eye detection on the Canon EOS M50 MK II, but in every other regard they are identical cameras.View this product →
Tempaper Removable Peel and Stick Wallpaper for Homes and RVs ($34.99)
We really like the TemPAINT, TemPAPER, and Oxdigi solution because the products are shipped by the roll, allowing for easy unpacking and application. What’s even better, is that you can experiment with different color choices to see what works and what doesn’t.
We applied 6 different colors over the space of a year or so and finally settled on three primary accent colors. We’ll be revisiting the interior accent colors of our 1973 GMC Motorhome next year to experiment with some new colors and treatments.
Using TemPaint is so much cheaper (and easier) than having to constantly repaint!View this product →
Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Mosquito Repeller with 20’ Mosquito Protection Zone (Blue) ($39.99)
Easily the most effective and convenient mosquito repellent on the market.
Placement is key, so you must take wind direction into account, as the product description mentions. Additionally, having a rechargable device is far more reliable and convenient than relying on the availability and monitoring of a fuel cell.
I found that by placing a pedestal fan a few feet away from our seating position and allowing a slight breeze to pass over us -- but perpendicular the Thermacell e55 -- its effectiveness was improved.View this product →
