Our family purchased this vehicle in 2015, but soon after moved abroad and have had very little opportunity to use it. Although we’ve moved back to the U.S., we just recently had our second child and are not getting to use it enough to keep it.

Exterior and interior are very clean and it runs great. Super low miles for the vehicles age. It is a very compact RV that would make a great camping or expedition vehicle.

Shortly after purchasing, we had the entire engine rebuilt, so it is in great shape mechanically.

Additional Info from previous owner who did a lot of work on the rig:

Interior: I removed all of the pink shag carpet (and staples), including in the cab. The camper flooring is vinyl red sappelle (looks like mohagany), cab floor was replaced with stock Toyota brown vinyl (easy to clean), cabinet doors were refaced with mohagany with a mixture of mohagany, teak and red sappelle trim thru out. The cabinet faces are still the original wood veneer and in good condition. I used paint on the ceiling trimmed with red sappelle battens. New faux leather door panels with the same material used elsewhere throughout. Restored original dinette table. New mini blind window coverings, and I still have the original pink curtains (for patterns). I rebuilt both dinette bench seats each with a storage lid. Incorporated a storage area center, above the dinette that did not exist. Reduced the rear window from the original large window, all rebuilt with marine ply and high grade marine fiberglass. I prefer the smaller window and wanted a solid structure (vs. the original hollow structure) in the rear to mount a small exterior rack…very solid now. The floors in these motorhomes tend to be spongy, so I reinforced from underneath with 1″x4″ aluminum channel as well as inside with a piece of 1/8″ Baltic birch. I have used stainless screws throughout. All new original locking cabinet hardware. All new interior lights.

Exterior: the fiberglass body and roof are in good shape, the weathered pin stripe was removed with a 3M rubber wheel. The original pinstripe marks have not been completely buffed out, I was considering re-stripping. The truck body/cab could use paint due to scratches and rock chips. There is no significant rust other than small spots where the paint has chipped. Windows have been pulled and resealed along with compartment doors. The aluminum trim that covers the seam of the two piece camper body has been reinforced with stainless screws and sealed with marine fiberglass filler. Front and rear bumpers have been replaced. I powder coated the compartment doors, pull handle face, mirror brackets and replaced the exterior mirrors with stainless. The wrap around windows are “ok” and if you want to replace them, I have read online that they are still being manufactured in central California. I was going remove them completely and re-create this area. Wheels have been painted and are original. Some new exterior compartment doors have been added.

Electrical, Mechanical, Appliances: all new running lights. Rebuilt original tail lights. Two banks of west marine 12v outlets installed at the dinette and the bunk. All gauges work. No electrical problems that I know of. New heavy duty fuel tank and factory Toyota in tank fuel pump, replaced fuel filter (these are not the standard plastic filters and are built to last a lifetime). All of my camping is typically along the coast or High Sierra, so the roof A/C was removed as I have never used or needed one, also excess unwanted weight. New roof vents were installed, but the three wires are still in place making for an easy A/C install. There is no dash A/C, it was never installed from the factory, after market applications are available. The refrigerator is removed and I would recommend replacing it with a smaller, lighter Danfoss 12 v compressor fridge powered by a solar panel and small battery bank. The advantage is, so long as you have sunlight, there will be power for your fridge. These type of units are not temperamental when is comes to being level and will operate at a significant angle. The vehicle price reflects no refrigerator. The water pump, shower, toilet, water heater, forced air heater, converter, are all in working order. New starting and house battery. New muffler. New distributor cap rotor and plugs. Transmission was serviced at 21,000 miles by previous owner.
