    Could anyone help me price my 4x4 Odyssey

    Very nice. Could you tell us what you did to allow you to post your pictures? Reduce the file size?

    Could anyone help me price my 4x4 Odyssey

    Wow it's beautiful. So I originally said 25,000 but another member here had his 4x4 Sunrader on our for sale site for I think 35 grand. It sold. I don't know if he got full asking price but yours is a V6 so I would say more. 25,000 minimum up to 35,000. Pocket change compared to what people pay for an Earth Roamer or other newer model 4x4 motorhome. Even the Sportsmobile vans go for close to 100 grand. I would be comfortable with 35,000. Then see how it goes Linda S

    Would anyone want this camper for parts?

    More than likely propane. Probably 6 gallon, maybe 4.

    Storage Compartment Doors Repair or Replace

    Lay out the hole on the material then using appropriately sized drill bits remove as much waste from inside your layout lines, without going outside the line. then using files clean up the hole to the lines use your lock and check for fit. It really doesn't take that long to do.

    replacing seats in '78 chinook

    There is a Toyota Chinook group on Yahoo https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/toyotachinook/info Lots of the members there have replaced their seats. I see one mention of using seats from a 2014 Kia Rio 4 door Linda S
  12. Looking to replace the seats in my 1978 Chinook.would anybody know what other Toyota seats would fit back into the original factory holes? There is an awesome Toyota pick n pull yard out here in Denver, so I was hoping maybe some seats out an old 4runner or landcruiser might work.also have heard of making some sort of bracket adapter as well.

    Downshift Throttle Cable

    I wanted to finish up this thread with some better detail so it might help other users. Key Lesson! What looks like a little thing is a little more complicated. I got the cable through my local Toyota dealer who price matched the one referenced in this forum. And thanks to the forum input, it was the correct part. $144. I searched for a reputable transmission shop. With some referrals from friends I found one with a lift to handle it. He is a classic car restoration mechanic. In his shop were a 60's Chevy Powerglide and a 1948 DeSoto Suburban Fluid Drive. He wasn't the typical franchise shop in the strip mall. Cable was installed, he drove the RV before and after. Made adjustments on the cable.CHanged fluid, filter and seal. Gave me a thumbs up on the transmission. Labor and materials $317. All in all, not bad for about $450. And I know I have a good drive train.

    Weight on roof

    Rofl, thank you, I was thinking plywood too! NASCAR is not my thing, but hubby and 3 boys would like it!

    Weight on roof

    No NASCAR race viewing, sorry. If you need to do maintenance then a full width (side to side) plywood to spread the load.

    Weight on roof

    If it's in decent shape, yes.

    Weight on roof

    I just bought a 1985 (what’s wrong with me??) Toyota Dolphin. I’m in love. 😍 how much weight can the roof take? Not like I want to spend a lot of time up there, but I’m not a small person, at 180 lbs. Can it hold my weight if I need to go up there?

    Storage Compartment Doors Repair or Replace

    I'd imagine a rectangular hole would work just as well. Easy work since you've got a multitool!

    Storage Compartment Doors Repair or Replace

    Oldgriz - great suggestions. Replacing the entire door or just the insides are my preference. I can't tell if I can get the old stuff out. If I can then I can use the inside panel to replace the old faded outside panel. I will probably use PVC board to replace the particle board inside the guts of the doors to avoid wood altogether. If I can't disassemble the doors, then I will take the cut out approach and use my multitool to make clean cuts from the back side. Any advice on how to make the oblong (flat on two sides) holes for the locks? ...it looks like a flattened circle...

    An individual in Springfield, Missouri, is parting out various parts for a 1992 Dolphin. Those offered can be found on Craigslist for Spring Field.

    Storage Compartment Doors Repair or Replace

    1 ) remove the door, where the lock hole is on the back side of the door carefully cut out a square area say 4x4 inch and epoxy in a new plywood section then drill thru the existing hole on the outside with the appropriate sized drill bit and remount your lock. 2) if you can remove the particle board from the backside of the door altogether, than rebuild the door using appropriate sized plywood ( I wouldn't use particle board as its mostly glue and sawdust and not very weather resistant .)
  22. The locks on my storage compartment doors either spin or are loose. The particle board material inside the doors has eroded over time and no longer hold the locks in place. Any tips for how to repair this issue or where to find replacement doors? Thanks!

    Locking gasket for Sunrader wrap around windows

    Job completed and the gaskets worked! No more leaks!!! Thanks to all who shared their knowledge above. I could not have done it otherwise. I found these videos very useful. The SunRader video needs to be watched over and over because of the fast-mo. I know why they did it - the job takes FOREVER. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QGtJkAFPl8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NFd6A9lWvI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVUL7Y-FBos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbqarorplYE Here are my lessons learned... Wear gloves. The edges of the plexiglass are sharp. The plexi looks warped when installed but flat when removed. This is normal. The tension fit with the gaskets causes the bowing. When installing the gasket on the fiberglass shell, do not use soapy water because you want the rubber to really grab onto the camper shell. When installing the windows, use tons of soapy solution. I mixed 1 tbs of dish liquid with warm water in a quart size sprayer. It was enough to lubricate but not so much that it did not evaporate after installation. I found these tools invaluable and they save me a ton of time: Locking strip insertion tool Windshield Rubber Installation Tool Be patient and careful not to tear or puncture the rubber gasket. The installation tool is for pushing not pulling. Use it to nudge things into place or carefully move edges of the gasket. Expect to have to reinstall the gasket on the camper shell because it comes off easily. Same for getting the windows inserted. When removing the windows, I started on the sides and worked to the middle. I installed in the reverse order because I needed the added hold of the longer gasket while working on the corners. The corners are the hardest. Do your best to get the windows pushed fully into the center (long side) before starting on the corners. My windows did not look fully inserted evenly once I was done. Particularly on the sides. I was fed up and took a break. When I came back to the job the next morning, things had adjusted and were workable without removing the windows again. This is a WARM weather job. You need the gaskets to be as flexible as possible. Don't even try in cooler weather. Clean all surfaces very thoroughly. The seal needs smooth and clean contact on all surfaces to work. I used Goof Off (or Goo Gone) plus a new razor to remove every trace of residue from the fiberglass and plexi. My plexi is original and has some micro cracks that are visible when direct light hits them in certain spots. I was afraid that they would be brittle and break from the abuse but they were fine and I was very careful to not over flex them. The plexi was kind off dull traditional washing of the RV did not change the look. However, I noticed that the plexi was very nice looking where I was using the Goo Gone so I used liberal amounts on the entire exterior of the plexi followed by window cleaner. Now they look like new. I think that grime and grit settles into the small abrasions on the surface over time (28 years!) but my cleaning made them look like new. Here is the finished product (1990 V6 purchased from original owner in Kalamazoo with 32K miles - now 48K miles)...
  24. I probably have $1,000-$1,500 invested (total for everything RV/parts/registration). Now i'm just trying to do some small upgrades as I go. And thank you!
  25. In Toyota motorhome world you just won the Lotto. Lucky guy Linda S
  26. Just picked up my first RV a few months back (1987 Toyota Sunrader - 21'). The RV was sitting for about 10 years and needed some work done to get it running (now it runs like a champ). I'm not sure what it is worth, although I got it for almost nothing. ---------- Specifications ---------- Miles - 024,702 Engine - 22RE Model - RKB (rear kitchen bath - see photo below) length - 21 feet ---------- Things I had to do ---------- 1) Drop the fuel tank and flush with muriatic acid (this is the 27 gal tank, so I wanted to keep this on instead of purchasing a smaller new tank). 2) Fuel pump 3) Fuel filter 4) Flushed fuel lines 5) Oil. 6) Other small things ---------- Things that do not work ---------- The only thing on the RV that does not work is the Fridge. The freezer will get cold, although It is inconsistent and will not cool the entire fridge (this is the same with either propane or plugged in). I'm assuming it is the cooling system and a loss. ---------- Pictures ----------
