Features 28 components that open/close, swivel/rotate such as cabinet doors, front wheels and even the sun visors. This model has been built to include the smallest of detail, including a complete engine, undercarriage and fully functional living area. Just like it rolled off the showroom floor in the late '70's.

Setup Guide

Motorhome
The 'InfoPanel' is a seperate prop from the Motorhome that displays pertainent information and where to find the ReadMe file. The 'InfoPanel' can be turned off or deleted after loading.

What is Everything?
More information about the Motorhome then you probably ever wanted to know. This model was the Cadilac of all recreation vehicles of it's time. Did you know that it came with a central-vacuum? Yeah, the port is behind the bench seat next to the refriderator. Or, that the refriderator/freezer ran off either 110 volt or propane gas? Now that's cool. It also had a separate ice maker and compartment for safely holding wine glasses.

The Kitchen counter is cast in resin with layers of real sea shells embedded in it. Built into the counter is a Magic Chef blender port that also had mixer and grinder attachments.

Fully self-contained, and able to hold 40 gallons of fresh water and loads of storage space. It has everything needed to keep a small family in comfort for a week at a time, and even longer with campground hook-up.

Dimensions: 34 feet long, 8 feet wide, 10.5 feet high not including the Antennea and weighing 12,800 pounds empty.

Rendering Tips

Textures and Materials
This product was initally a parented prop. A third-party app was used to format the initial prop files and the Ambient and Specter levels were reversed. This resulted in Ambient levels too high for all surfaces. This happened a lot before I realised the issue. New material updates are available below. Download for Motorhome works on all versions including slider versions from Expansion #3. Mobile Studio version is for Expansion #5. Update zips include a better reflection texture and MatPose ambient lights. Cr2 files should replace old versions.
