More Details & Pictures
Well, I have finally decided to sell her. The family needs something a little bit bigger and as much as I hate to do it, this gem needs a new home. I have owned 2 other Sunraders in the past, this one is my absolute preferred setup.
The run down. This is an all original 1978 Sunrader, almost exactly as it would have come from the factory. All upholstery, fabric, floor, cabinets, appliances are original and fully functional. The Fiberglass is in good shape, a few imperfections as would be expected with something this age, but nothing at all serious. The cab is in good shape, it has the original dealer optioned factory air conditioning which was recently serviced and blows cold. The seats are original with no rips or tears. This is the ultra rare front dinette layout, with the rear door, and rear opening hatch, which is completely awesome.
It is only 17 feet long, making it a shorty, well even shorter than the 18 foot models, and 3655 pounds wet weight – meaning it’s about one thousand pounds lighter than the newer 18 foot sunrader models. It averages 18.5 miles per gallon, as it did on our 1100 mile trip just last month. The engine is in amazing shape, it burns no oil, or any other fluid leaking. It was just serviced by our mechanic who knows the 20R inside and out. The valves were adjusted, exhaust manifold gasket replaced, AC serviced, fluids changed – all done last month. In the last 10,000 miles even more maintenance was performed.
Recent maintenance performed in the last 2 years:
valve adjustment, AC serviced, new exhaust manifold gasket, carb retuned.
oil changes every 3k miles
new batteries, both engine and coach
6 new tires all around
new fuel filter
new clutch and master cylinder
new brakes all around and front shocks
new spark plugs / wires
water pump replaced
propane tank replaced
battery terminals replaced
6 new tires all around
It’s a 78 Toyota Sunrader. 20R Engine, 4 speed manual which averages about 18-19 miles to the gallon.
111,100 original miles

Cab over bed can slide out to become a massive california king or also slide in for a more standard full size. dinette converts to sleep another 2 as well

The cons are: There are a few dings and scratches on the hood. Left one of the roof vents open during a storm and there is a slight bit of water staining on part of the headliner fabric.
