    What is it?

    Wow talk about rare. About the best bet for the window is a boat shop that can deal with curved Lexan/plexiglass. You can dye plex in a large tub using hot water and several boxes of rit dye Some were from a dark demented mind I seem to remember that they built a few they called a limousine version, lots of seating, no popup, and not much camping stuff

    Toyota or Nissan NEVER MADE RVs. The different manufacturers bought a bare C&C (cab and chassis) and installed their version of a camper. What you have is a Sunrader, they were made in Ca and IL. A glass shop should be able to replace the rear window if it was flat.

    With hindsight being perfect, it looks like you need to combine your storage cribbage with your jacking setup and make it really easy to reinstall it.

    1986 Sunrader 21ft. Help

    Toys are cute no doubt, Raders even more so, but they are a real motorhome and have the same expensive parts as a larger RV. Even with a newish engine, the transmission has 200kmi on it. The 43d is not overly HD and has probably been abused. Check the color of the transmission fluid, clear red good, burnt brown BAD. Living long term in an RV is hard on the RV. Looking at the interior pics makes this even more likely. Its the age of the tires that matters not how tread is left. The front tires show alignment problems or they were driven a long time with incorrect tire pressure A WAG is that you are going to spend $4-5000 to make it golden. Are you crafty or are you going to be paying someone to fix all the stuff? Your wanderlust dreams are very doable, just don't slap it together and hit the road. Fix everything right or you'll end up broke down alongside the road in Tucumcari NM.

    Ceiling Sag?

    The ceiling is paper glued to luan plywood. Resulting panel was glued-screwed to the rafters. Choices jack up the roof and use a 2x2 floor to ceiling to support it. OR just shave the door

    Roof coating suggestions

    To coat it, you have to get up on the roof. So get a ladder and see what your roof is.

    I can't tell what the roof is made of. Bare aluminum or is it a rubber roof (EPDM).

    Not a Toyota, but a totally awesome build. There may be some ideas for the folks who are doing major rebuilds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW-ikFvkPnQ
