More Details & Pictures

We have a 1983 Toyota Sunrader Motor home that we’ve 90% remodeled. It has 77k on it. Clear title in hand.
Gets almost 24MPG! Toyota truck engine with unleaded fuel. Most importantly it’s got a brand new clutch and brakes.

In case you don’t know, Sunrader’s are the most sought after Toyota Mini Motorhomes. They have a cult following and are adored by their owners. There are meet ups, forums, blogs etc. so there is a lot of info out there on these awesome little RVs.

Technical Details:
• They are made of two pieces of fiberglass (designed by a boat racer) and are therefore leak proof.
• This engine is the 22R, 4 cyl, carburetor with a 4-speed manual. These are the most reliable and fuel-efficient engines.
• I have clocked over 20mpg on some of my trips. Obviously this depends on hills etc but makes for affordable trips.
• The camper is easy to drive, shifts smoothly, rolls and turns smoothly. It drives like a big SUV and shockingly has great visibility.
• Because it is only 21 feet long, you can visit every national park/forest with no restrictions.
• Can easily fit into parking spaces.
• Its also a truck so you can take in on moderately rough dirt roads.
• It needs nothing mechanically.
• Most appliances work but fridge needs cooling system, and sink needs o-ring replaced.
• It has no leaks of any kind from the engine or windows.
• It does have working air conditioner’s in cab and main body.
• The dinette configuration feels very spacious. Also gives space between both beds.
• Has 4 beds, one dinette and one overhead cab. Total of 6 can sleep comfortably.
• The bathroom is full fiberglass with no seams so no leaks/mold etc.
• Has hitch.
• Has AC/heat pump low profile.
• 15 gallon water tank. 7 gallon grey tank, 8 gallon black tank.
• 2 gallon hot water heater.
• Newer exterior stickers with fresh updated look.

There are only a few things left to do if you really wanted it to be pretty. I updated the interior to white and made it more modern with navy accents, new curtains and updated knobs and handles. This RV is ready to go Glamping! The odometer is starting to stick. This is a recent thing and is a $5 plastic spindle from what I understand. I personally don’t have the know how to take the dash apart, but I’ve been told it’s an easy fix.

Again, please do some research on this camper so you can see how cool they are and ask detailed questions. There are many groups of people specifically for these recreational vehicles.

With two young kids we don’t have the energy and ability to utilize the motor home to it’s fullest capacity. I’m hoping we can sell it to someone that will really enjoy it.
