    2013 4x4 Tacoma Custom Chinook build in progress

    Very nice indeed. Congratulations on the build and thanks for sharing.

    GVWR sense.

    ... but oddly (to me) never got around to adding matching wheels up front!

    Anyone heard about Toyota Camroad?

    No need for the 'Sorry'. I'm sure we'd help if we knew anything about them.

    Roadside Assistance Recommendations

    On a slightly more serious note, I wonder if they'd tow you to an RV 'place' (who would likely know nothing about old Toyotas) or a mechanical garage (where they might know something about pre-OBD2 Toyotas)?

    I'm curious. Are there any 'Authorized Service Centers' anywhere for Granvilles?

    Sunrader RV v. Others: Recommendations?

    An even rarer few were 22RET (Turbo).

    Again after researching the market, I guess Toyota thinks there wouldn't be enough demand for their diesels to justify the time and expense to 'North Americanize' the diesels.

    And how much does one of those cost? Compare to the cost of a stripped vehicle that is currently built as a Class B or C? End up with $80k - $100k?

    I'm sure Toyota as market researched the hell out of this question and have come to the conclusion the going the C&C route (like they did in the past) for the North American market isn't going to turn them a profit. What'll they sell? A couple of thousand (a year)?

    Does anyone know anything about this vehicle.?

    You an also search Google by images. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b&sa=X&q=Toyota+FJ+Cruiser&tbm=isch&tbs=simg:CAQSlQEJuoYiZ9Mhtx0aiQELEKjU2AQaAggVDAsQsIynCBpiCmAIAxIohA6CDoMO1hjhGIAO2hjbGOkN2RiPIJwmsCa1JpghgiGmJtoyxSuSIRow6G5NlQNUMCxDlUAflHPjWuHk3ZUXBIwHwZ2odOahezTDD4KrtKAO3yfsOunXp_1JCIAQMCxCOrv4IGgoKCAgBEgRYPdVeDA&ved=0ahUKEwj4sNzj6MnbAhXB6YMKHVj4BDQQwg4IJigA&biw=1252&bih=581 It appears this image has been floating around the net for 2 years.

    The OP hasn't logged in since March 2017. I doubt he'll see your question.

    Anyone Have A Dolphin Ecu (Engine Computer) For Sale?

    I've no problem seeing people who provide good services being mentioned. Maybe try out your refurbished ECU for a few miles before endorsing it! Not the first time I've heard of engine rebuilders not wanting to warranty installations in Toyota Motorhomes. Read the fine print before deciding.

    Making it water tight...

    Pictures are always helpful to help people assess what's going on. I wouldn't count on lap sealant for structural strength. I'm old school and prefer wood and screws or construction adhesive. P.S. IMHO, Dan's advice was sound, given the information available when it was given.

    Need help identifying model of my 1984 motorhome

    Pretty much everything wrong to be an '84 Dolphin. Profile (especially bunk area), bunk & dinette windows, rear wheel cutouts. The whole house almost looks home-made.

    Well, it's not a 1984 Dolphin.

    Well, to get you started, IF it's a 1984 Dolphin, here's the brochure. The Model 500 is the rear dinette layout.

    towing limits 92 warrior

    That's because they knew how weak the factory frame extensions were. Barely able to support the 'house'.

    Summer Rally

    Nothing to stop you from doing one later this year (Summer or Fall). Pick a date and location and even if only 2 or 3 show up, that potentially gives you 2 or 3 others to help you organize a 'proper' one next year. Good luck.

    Mobile site ???

    Well, I usually only look here on my laptop or iPad but to check for you I’m replying on my SE. EDIT: Looks like it worked. What sort of issues are you having?

    New winnebago box on a toyota pickup?

    Unless it had Australian plates and RHD.

    Nothing I've heard of. Pity you didn't snap a photo.

    Metal roof

    Sounds like poor prep-work if it peels off like that.

    What to use between top of cab and bottom of filon??

    My first thoughts were of 'closed-cell neoprene' for your seal. You might find some interesting stuff here. With an outlet in BC, too. http://www.faucher.ca/pdfhome.html
