Isaac Marion is the author of the critically-acclaimed zombie book, Warm Bodies. He gathers inspiration for his writing during cross-country RV trips in his 1977 GMC Birchaven motorhome.

Isaac named his 23 foot long motorhome Baleen because she’s big, blue, and looks like a whale.

Wow, that’s definitely less than cool he got a notice to move. It must be difficult finding parking in the city. Those shocks are killer, though. It’s amazing that even in the 1970s GMC included such futuristic features in their motorhome lineup. You can check out Isaac’s book Warm Bodies here.
