More Details & Pictures
Yes, this is that Toyota RV you have been looking for! It is rare and unique especially because it is NOT a project! Just the opposite — everything has been carefully gone over to be as nice as possible.
Restoring Toyota RVs is our hobby. My assistants and I have spent multiple hours intentionally refurbishing this coach to be optimally usable for the next owners. We are experienced in what we are doing and we take pride in our work. There is a lot of satisfaction from putting one back on the road as it was meant to be with everything working again as perfectly as we can make it.
“Way above average” aptly describes this coach. The reasons will become obvious when you read its many features and upgrades. Most Toyota RVs that come up for sale need a fair amount of time and attention, and probably a good amount of money to make them comfortable and trouble-free again. Here now instead, is one that is ready to take camping right away. What you will read about is at least 100 different tasks and items that the new owner WON’T have to deal with because we have fixed or improved or added them already.
First of all, this model is a Winnebago Itasca Spirit, which it is considered to be the best built of any brand of Toyota RV overall, but nicely-restored ones like this are rather hard to find.
Secondly, it has a V-6 engine (not a 4 cylinder) so you have more adequate power for climbing hills, and you have the ability to tow a moderate load. Interstate speeds of 65 mph are easy to maintain. The ride in the cab is much quieter and the seats more comfortable than earlier models. Toyota engines are known for their longevity and great gas mileage especially compared to any other RVs of the same size and price. The chassis with automatic transmission can get up to 16 miles per gallon.
Thirdly, this engine has quite low miles for a Toyota RV — only 68,800. (Most have between 90 – 120,000.) The chassis with automatic transmission can get up to 16 miles per gallon. This 1993 model is the last year that any motorhomes were built on a Toyota chassis = as new as you can get.
In the last 15 months, it has had all of the following engine and chassis work performed so as to make it as roadworthy as possible. With all of these maintenance items taken care of, you can have confidence that this RV will perform better than most. (It is more apt to be free of the unexpected surprises that often come with used RVs that are for sale because sellers just want them off their property for whatever reason.)

The spare tire is located underneath. There are Air Springs in the rear to provide a more comfortable ride for passengers, and for leveling the coach somewhat while camping.
The exterior of the RV is flat-sided fiberglass — more desirable. It has now been polished and detailed, and the exterior stripes which were cracked have been replaced with new. The outside mirrors have been re-painted to look fresh. If you didn’t know, finding a nice-looking exterior on a Toyota RV is a hard thing to come by.
