**Needs Engine Rebuild (22RE)**

1986 Toyota Granville RV automatic with 86K miles. We bought this little motor home this spring and had an epic 2 month cross country road trip followed by regular use this summer. Unfortunately, she overheated a few weeks ago going over Mt. Hood. I put in a new radiator, hoses, thermostat, and fan clutch and she ran nice and cool this week right up until the moment the motor self-destructed…

We were already planning to sell the RV at the end of this season and I really don’t want to put a junk-yard engine in this thing just to sell it. I’d rather see it sold as-is to someone who can then put the right engine in it for them (3RZ swap???) or rebuild what’s in it currently.

The Good:
Other than the engine issue, this RV is pretty much adventure-ready. The entire water system including the pump and hot water heater work great and I installed a new fresh water tank this spring. The furnace was completely rebuilt with a Dinosaur motherboard and it’s linked to a digital thermostat that self-regulates the interior temp. The propane stove and oven both work. It has the original electric/propane refrigerator which works on propane but no longer runs on electricity. Its super efficient on propane so we’ve had no issue using it. It has 2x coach batteries that can be manually switched back and forth and an auto-switch that regulates between 30 amp shore power and generator power. The toilet functions, neither the grey or black water tanks leak at all and the dump valves all work correctly. The coach overhead electric heater/AC combo works on both generator and shore power. No interior water damage, roof is well sealed and the original interior upholstery is in really good shape for its age.

The is a large storage rack/cage/box combo on the back that holds bike racks. The frame of the vehicle was re-enforced with 1.5×3″ square stock steel from the rear leaf spring perches all the way back to accommodate for the extra weight. The RV also comes with airbag suspension that I haven’t yet installed.

**Has correct 6-lug 1-ton rear-axle!**

The bad:
– Engine blown
– The generator was running rough so I took it out to have it serviced. It probably needs a carb rebuild or tweaking to the governor or choke. It comes with the RV and I’m happy to re-install as is or just provide it to the new owner so they can have it serviced.
– Both the interior and exterior are in pretty good shape for the age of the vehicle, but is by no means perfect. Expect all the little dings and blemishes that come with 35 year old RV!

Maintenance within last 10k miles:

– New Upper/lower ball joints
– Replaced Front pads/rotors
– Re-packed front wheel bearings
– New front KYB shocks
– New coil-assist rear shocks
– New windshield
– New starter
– Re-sealed roof (Dicor lap sealant)
– Rebuilt propane furnace (with Dinosaur circuit board)
– New oversized 3-row radiator
– Installed/calibrated throttle positioning sensor
– Installed mass air flow sensor (bench tested good)
– New gas tank
– Replaced rear axle gear lube
– All 6x tires have about 8k miles on them
– Propane regulator was checked by an RV service center for safety, no leaks.

– I’m asking $7,500 OBO and am not interested in trades. Clean Title in hand
