More Details & Pictures

She’s a VERY RARE (might even be “one of a kind”) reliable TOYOTA, GYPSY micro-motorhome! EXCELLENT GAS MILEAGE AT 16 MPG!

BONUS: You can live anywhere in the right season, off-grid with the $1,500 Multi solar set-up that is included!

She has a propane stove; propane fridge, propane hot water heater, both kitchen and bath sinks, a toilet, a shower, 25g water storage tank.

She’s surprisingly comfortable with everything and great windows and airflow!

Best of all a reliable Toyota 20R motor with only 86,000+ miles! Easy to work on and inexpensive parts available as the Hilux Truck made for years by Toyota!

As far as mechanical stuff, she has a newer’ish clutch and rebuilt manual 4speed gearbox. The rear tires and spare on top are almost new.

180w Solar (one panel on roof, one to multi-angle and follow the sun off-season, stored under the mattress when not in use, two batteries (one for the engine; one for the coach); two charge controllers and a 1000w, sine wave inverter (so you can safely charge your sensitive devices, such as your lap-top).

She runs great! If you are interested let me know, she is currently residing in Fort Collins.

I have reduced her price to account for her location and some unfinished “cosmetic” unfinished body improvements (the parts if you want to replace were available on the internet for $380 total, I can send you the links. To view the body work, see the photo in the sand and zoom in to the drivers side hood/bumber/fender to see the area which of unfinished body work.

Other Notes for the Purchaser: Respectful of her age she should be tarped for snow or bad weather if you are not using her. She should also be re-siliconed seasonally especially in extreme climates like the desert where the silicone wears out or ideally, anytime you get on the roof as the silicone seals can break.

Also, just so I don’t forget to tell you when you buy her: she must have 91 octane fuel or she will cough and splutter (this is in the owners manual). She also takes 10w-40 oil, she currently has upgraded synthetic oil.
