More Details: We took this mini motorhome on an 8,000-mile trip and it was a champ! Our favorite part was that it got an average of 18mpg, which is unheard of in motorhomes. Our family is growing, so we have outgrown this unit and had to get a bigger one.
This is a full list of things we replaced as well as everything that is “not perfect” with the vehicle. Some things would need to be addressed before travel, and other things are just quirks that are just because the vehicle is old (1984). We want to be completely up front and honest so you know exactly what the situation would be before buying it!
We put in new plug wires, spark plugs, new carburetor, sealed the roof, installed a new master slave cylinder, new break cylinder, new propane tank and components, brand new clutch, and all new tires. On average, it gets 18mpg (which we loved considering most motorhomes get 7-8mpg). Because it’s small, it’s pretty easy to drive and very manageable. It’s a 4-speed manual. R-22 engine (which are known for being really sturdy engines). On the interior, we painted everything, made new curtains, and recovered the couch/bed cushions. The tabletop (which turns into the bed in the back) broke, so we just have a piece of plywood in there right now. The unit doesn’t have a generator, so you wouldn’t have power if you’re parking in a parking lot overnight, for example. You would have to be somewhere you can plug in, like a campground or next to someone’s house or something. We parked “unplugged” a ton – it never bothered us, you just wouldn’t have access to all the features, and if you have food in the fridge, you’d have to get a cooler with ice, etc. Which brings me to another point – the original fridge went out while we were traveling so we replaced it with a small electric only mini fridge. So again, you’d have to be plugged in to use it. The front truck cab doesn’t have AC, so we just always rolled the windows down when we were driving. The back AC works great though, so once you stop and set up somewhere, the AC is great. The front end is loose and would probably need to be fixed before you travel. The back axle needs the bearing on the passenger side replaced and break pads – another thing that would need to be done before you travel. It also has a 3/4 ton axle that was recalled in the 80’s, but the owners at that time didn’t swap it out. (We still traveled with it that way.)
We’ve seen some of these Toyota mini motorhomes go for $8,000-$12,000, but because there’s some work that needs to be done to this one, we’ll let it go for $5,500. Let us know if you have any questions or would like to come see it. Text/call. [REDACTED].
