More Details & Pictures

Rare 87 Toyota Nova Star for sale. Whoever gets this little gem will be a very happy camper!

If you’re looking for a nice Toyota RV look no further. Only made from 86-88, and built with a 1 piece “all-fiberglass” shell. This “seamless” fiberglass body is virtually indestructible, and provides a “leakproof” rooftop. This is huge as it eliminates the need to keep resealing the roof, and run the risk of leaking water (which they all do! Not to mention wood rot). The Nova Star has the best build quality I have seen for the Toyota motorhomes (Dolphin, Coachmen, Warrior, Sunrader, etc). The interior is all real wood and built real solid. Its open layout makes it really spacious and works really well to move inside it. It is ideal for this size with big open windows in the rear dinette area which provide a great “outdoors” feeling and “view”.

-Only 41k original miles on the camper and a rebuilt 22re engine w/ literally less than 100 miles!
-Brakes just redone with brand new master cylinder and brake lines.
-Upgraded 6 lug 1 ton rear axle can handle heavier loads.
-Air ride suspension , inflate up to 100 psi, this is really nice as it lifts the rear and aids suspension. Costs over $1000 parts plus installation. Notice how the rear is actually higher than the front.
-Runs and drives like new, smooth and quiet, steering doesn’t move to either side, drives comfortably on the highway. These 22re fuel injected toyota engines are the best and will achieve 16+ mpg. The V6’s are notorious blowing head gaskets, the 22re is Toyota’s workhorse. Transmission with overdrive also great for gas mileage and performance.

-Full kitchen w/ double sink and tap
-4 burner stove
-Dometic 3-way refrigerator, works on propane or electric.
-Good size bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.
-Built in 40 gallon fresh water tank connected to kitchen taps and shower
-Water heater
-Furnace heating
-Factory insulation throughout the van.
-Wardrobe and storage
-Shore power and water hook ups to connect at campgrounds or driveway.
-Built in grey and black water tanks to drain sink bathroom and shower.
-Dump valves are located on the outside for disposal.
-Auxiliar battery to power inside lights, faucet, shower Etc (charge while driving)
-Both 110v and 12v outlets

Everything works great, all appliances work well. All dash gauges work well as well. This camper really stands out in many ways. It sleeps 4 comfortably, 2 above the cab and a rear dinette which converts to a big bed.

Does it need anything?
-Not really, the fridge gets really cold , water heater for hot showers, lights etc, it all works well. It has a brand new auxiliar battery for the interior. It’s never been lived in. No oil leaks, strange noises or smells. 41k original miles on the camper, in 4 years time it’ll probably have less than 60k miles on the odometer and 20k miles on the engine, a great investment and a great camper for many years to come!

Sorry everyone I can only show it to serious buyers. First come first serve. The amount of interest and Covid don’t allow otherwise.

Asking $17600
