Hey folks,

For those that haven't heard, Jim Bounds is closing up shop at the GMC Co-Op in Orlando, FL (also now called Motorhome Rehab Ranch). For many years Jim has been accumulating parts, pieces, components, etc..... - a lot of which can & will work on Revcons. I'd conservatively say that Jim has probably 4x the inventory stockpiled that Marty Moore did - between 5 separate buildings at his facility. And..... guess what? It's ALL going to auction!

The closing auction will be held on January 20-21 at the GMC Co-Op compound located on Anno Avenue in Orlando. There are several Youtube videos up showcasing items that will be in the auction. A good portion of what Jim has is GMC specific.... but much is not and will fit Revcon Coaches.

If you're interested in more information on the auction please do check out the Youtube videos. The auction will be live on Facebook (and yes you can bid there as well!), and also live to participants on site. Items will NOT be shipped by Jim's staff, although they will help you work with a shipping service to get your purchases boxed and shipped.

I'm disappointed that Jim finally decided to pull the switch and shut down, but some of the business will live on. Another gentleman will be continuing on the GMC repair side (GMC coaches only) at a separate location and I know Jim will be working with him to get and help sustain things in operation. Here's a Youtube video you can start with;



Thanks
Eric

Surprised to see this. Seems like the pandemic got him. Combination of his location/land value and the pandemic. Honestly, it apparently is a low margin business. I have to think if he could have afforded to move the business to some place in Kentucky, he could have made a go. More centralized location. Then compartmentalize the business into several small businesses to keep the overhead small and manageable. If you want to see an explanation, check this link:

He had more coaches then you could count in his place, people living in like 6 coaches on a temporary basis (both staff and folks waiting for service), parts & shell coaches, plus the coaches inside the main building being actively worked on, it really was a overwhelming endeavor. Jim was always a good scrounger and packrat, the amount of inventory they moved out shows.

I know that Code Enforcement had been giving him a rough time over some things and with more and more people wanting coach services, engine replacements, custom builds and him getting on in years I think he just got to the point where he wanted to hang things up & take it easy. Another person did buy the business and is running it, although not in the same location. It was my understanding that the new business will be GMC only, not Revcons, Airstream, or any of the variety of coaches he was working on in there. Definitely a loss for Revcon owners as he did work on a number of the coaches, both slant and flat-noses over the years (including a engine rebuild and interior refresh on mine!).

Eric
