    Could anyone help me price my 4x4 Odyssey

    Hey Freestone, Just wanted you to know I've been trying to upload pics of the inside like you requested but to no avail, gives me an error (-200) every time. I'll try again tomorrow. Just got the Ody back from the rv place where they worked on some wiring issues (put in new dynamic panel) and fixed the toilet gasket. Also had some engine trouble, seems to be running with less power so I gave it a tune up (new rotor, cap, wires, sparkies, fuel filter, etc) still running low on power so have taken it off to the shop. Also, am noticing now that I've had it out of the garage and we've had lots of rain, it will need some caulking done, looks like I have a leak from the running lights above the cab, from the fantastic vent, and possibly from the passenger rear side--suppose that's par for the course since it's been in my garage for 2 and a half years and I suppose the engine stuff is also par for the course...anyway, will have some pics up soon.

    Linda, I'm just now seeing the pic--don't know why it didn't show up earlier, is this one yours? Sweet ride

    I keep thinking I will get out there and take a pic of the interior, hopefully this weekend--we found that we were constantly moving things, setting up/taking down/hopping over each other...just like you said. Our oldest actually likes to sleep under our bed which is kind of funny--ours is the pull out sofa so she will just throw her sleeping pad and bag down and crawl in for the night with no worries of anyone stepping on her, then my second oldest can take the dinette bed we made. Ours is also in a constant state of being cleaned:) but I suppose that's just normal for 4 kids or 3 for that matter...

    Lol, it's crazy full--we have a 3 yr old, 6, 9, and 11, so three kids go up above the cab, wife and I sleep on the pull out and oldest sleeps beside us--I took out the two chairs beside the side door and installed bench seats with storage under and seat belts mounted to the frame so kids could have enough seat belts when traveling down the road, also installed a table that mounts to either side of the door and has a flip down leg on the other side, that table nestles into the front sides of the bench seats to make a 3rd bed. The joy is getting to the bathroom in the middle of the night:) And the reality is it's not comfortable hence the reason I'm selling my favorite vehicle...

    Yeah, I really like that rear dinette version. Yes, bought it just south of Fresno in Lemoore. Bought it sight unseen, had a friend who lived there go pick it up for me, then we flew out and drove it up PCH 1 to Washington then back home. Thanks so much for the info!

    So Linda, you say around a dozen were made, how many of those were Sunraders--I've seen some of those just wondering if the 4x4 was aftermarket? I only know of 2 Odyssey 4x4's in existence could be more, but these are the only 2 I know--one in Alaska and mine in TN. Interesting to learn Toy motorhomes all over the world don't have dually's--I asked several 4x4 shops if the axle would handle the weight and it was always the same answer, confident it would. It's been a really fun vehicle, I just went reminiscing through several files of trips last evening. I've tried multiple times to figure out how to keep it but with 4 kids (3,6,9,11), I can't come up with a layout I could transform it into that would work.

    Thanks for your response Linda, will do.
  10. Ok, so finally have to sell my Ody--too many kids so have to go larger. This RV has taken us everywhere, even some crazy 4x4 roads in CO where people looked at us funny, but my shower, kitchen, and bed put theirs to shame over 12000 ft. I know some have wondered whether 4x4 is a positive--I've read posters who said it's useless, but those of us with 4x4's would all disagree. I know having 2 wheels pulling may not be a big thing, but getting to the pristine places we've been the low is what really makes the difference! There are only a few states left on our map that we haven't gotten to. Anyways, It's been sitting in my garage for the past two years so am looking to sell and want to list correctly. 1991 Toyota Odyssey 4x4 V6 100k miles. Bought in CA in 2011. Took out AC and replaced with fantastic vent, just had everything serviced, toilet, heater, 3way fridge, replaced faulty power board. Since it's been kept in my garage, I haven't noticed any leaks, cab over is solid, roof is solid, tires are good. Does not have dually and I know people talk about that--some say they had this taken care of by 91. All I know is that I have 4 kids--I know we've been at or over load limit on our trips out west and I've put close to 30k on this RV with no axle problems other than replacing the bearings on both sides--I suppose by 95k those needed to be replaced. I took out the two seats and put in bench seats with storage underneath but other than that have not changed anything else. Here's a pic
