MARCO KATHURIA, Founder, mymotorhomelife.com
Founder // Producer // Educator // Creative Director
Marco is a university lecturer, community media instructor, and independent video producer. He works with the nonprofit sector in Washington DC and New York City. He is also the owner of MKCREATIVE | media, a creative agency working with nonprofits in the Washington, D.C. metro and New York City.
Marco and JoyceMac have owned a 1973 GMC Motorhome Model 260 with the “Glacier” color package and GMC floorplan #26′-4. Their beloved GMC Motorhome was #761 off the assembly line. The first owner (FO) refurbished and upgraded the coach twice. Once in the mid-80’s and again in the early 2000’s. Marco likes to say that the FO bought every conceivable accessory and upgrade available at the time!
From the very beginning, “Carla”, as she is affectionately known was seen as both a project vehicle for Marco and JoyceMac to work on, but also as a mobile office. To that end, various systems and conveniences were installed (or upgraded) to make work on the road more practical and reliable.
With Carla receiving a much-needed rebuilt engine, transmission, and new air suspension components from Jim Bounds‘ team at Cooperative Motorworks a year after Marco and JoyceMac purchased Carla, the family hit the road to enjoy the comforts of home on six wheels.
With the global pandemic of 2020, having a vacation getaway vehicle became even more critical. JoyceMac and Marco were able to slip away for 2-5 day trips to enjoy socially-distanced breaks from the pressures of work, the emotional toll the pandemic was having on their family, friends, and colleagues. They continue to do so at the time of writing.
“Carla” has travelled many thousands of miles since Marco and JoyceMac first saw her that fateful day in New Jersey. They hope to travel many thousands of miles more in the future.
