Toyota Motorhomes

These wee motorhomes were made from the mid-70s through the early 90s.  Constructed on Toyota truck frames, the shells were made by a variety of manufacturers and common ones include Winnebago, Dolphin, Itasca, Odyssey, Sunrader and Chinooks.  Although overweight and underpowered, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and their tough little engines, small footprint and good gas mileage have revived interest in these little gems.  This group is for owners (and wanna be owners) who wish to discuss their upsides, downsides, quirks, renovations–and encourage each other on our journeys with these little toyhomes.

Watch for Scams!

Each day I scour Craigslist nationally for what will be my perfect toyhome, and each day I have to report four or more scam ads. Often the title has odd characters in it.  Most of these have only one picture (but not always) of a nicely kept 90's Warrior model, a price of $2000 or $2001 or $2004 (something right in that range - and an odd number), and copy with claims like "powerful engine".  We all know that while a Toyhome owner may claim a famous 22R engine, they will never call them powerful!  Just a note to BEWARE!

Two axles on a Toyota motorhome rather than rear duallies? 4 Replies

Every once in awhile I run across an ad where the rig, instead of duallies (with the requisite 6 lug axle) appears to have two axles.  See attached.In other words, one wheel is to the rear, not the…Continue

Welcome Nick!  

I have spent a depressing summer looking but still yet to find.  They are all either too expensive and/or in much worse shape than I am willing to take on.  I just love the - oh, I've kept it garaged for 16 years and then you find the entire bathroom about to rot apart and the entire side delaminated (and you can see the layers peeling when you look inside a outside bay).  Yeah, right.  Ah, well.  There was a solid one this spring but she wanted more than I could afford. Ah well, there's one out there for me!

What issues do you live with, and what have you managed to correct?

Glad to be a member. I have a 1987 Toyota Mini Cruiser. All the usual issues but what the heck.

Trying to add links and resources as I find them.  Please comment if you have good tips I can add to the lists.  Or criticize things I've posted, if you find they haven't worked for you. The internet is full of weird ideas :-) I've included general information here, not just Toy-specific.  Hope it's useful! Just check out PAGES in the next column ----->

I've been researching ways to spruce up the lil' road troll interiors and found some interesting ideas with dupli-color vinyl and fabric paint for the cab, and chalk paint for the upholstery.  Anybody try any of these ideas?  I've gathered some links and YouTube videos.  Just check out the page "Resources - Interior Renovations" in the next column ----->
