OUR RIDE:

Every vessel needs a name and we have dubbed ours the "Artie" after the late great Arthur Pra Sr. who was a Giants fan his entire life. It is a 1980 2700LR Chevrolet SPORTCOACH. It packs a 454 CID V-8 under the hood with a 3-speed automatic 475 turbo-hydro transmission. It was purchased off Craigslist for a whopping $1,500.00 in Aug. of '09. The odometer reads just over 85,000 miles. The 2009 Season was the debut of the Artie and it appeared at all 8 regular season home games and a trip to West Point for the Army / Rutgers game. All interior parts including the original stove, microwave, and refrigerator are working except for the A/C. It is capable of Seating 10 and sleeping 4. THis past spring we have taken the oppurtunity to enhance the RV with a new audio system and skin it with the NY Giants skinit.com tailgate package. Sportscoach motor homes were manufactured in Chatsworth, Ca. during the '70's and '80's. Early Sportscoaches were SC1 series until the SC2's were introduced. The SC2 series, often referred to as the "Long Rangers", featured 100 gals fuel, waste and potable water capacities and 104 lb propane capacity. All SC2 series are designated as 2500, 2900, 3100 and 3300 models in side or rear bath configurations. Sportscoaches were available on Chevrolet P-30 chassis or Dodge M400/M500 chassis. Engine configurations included 350/454 for Chevrolet and 360/440 for Dodge. The construction of a Sportscoach Motorhome was considered 20 years ahead of it's time. They featured full steel, welded frames, two integral roll bars to protect occupants and a bonded sidewall construction. Sportscoach used high capacity heating and air conditioning systems that provided comfort in a wide range of climate conditions. Sportscoaches are distinguished by their unique aerodynamically designed front end. Sportscoach claimed a 20% increase in power and mileage over other conventional designs. Any Sportscoach owner will tell you they handle very well in windy situations with this design. Another Sportscoach feature was the 1 1/2" x 4" steel girder wrapped around the entire coach at impact level. This girder protects all system components including the gas tanks, propane tank, and the holding tanks, truly the "Sherman Tank" of the open road.
