  1. Thanks! I'm fairly certain it started life with a dinette/bed in the back and was converted in the 90's. The box and a super old non working radio came with it. I modified the box and bought a fancy CHEAP radio from ebay. The rear view camera is way overexposed but works. http://www.ebay.com/itm/142209169168?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT The LED light strip is hardwired in with the rocker switch near the side door. It cost me a grand total of $3.50 on ebay. My only complaint was the adhesive backing didn't want to stick to the ceiling. It's just going to be me and the kitties for my first trip. Plenty of lounging space for them! I hope I don't get trapped inside by the weather but if I do I can always nap. As for the shower I was going to seal the door to keep water in however I might put the shower curtain rail back up and track down a curtain to put on there.
  2. Updates for everyone! Tinkered all winter when it wasn't too cold. E-brake fixed Air bags installed(huge difference) Rear bearings repacked with new seals Fresh transmission and differential fluid as well as new breather valve on differential Smog equipment removed, engine bay cleaned up, carb rebuilt. New tires Scraped and painted as much of the frame as I could. Painted the interior, removed useless stuff, updated a bit. Resealed several exterior trim pieces which were iffy looking. Did a ton of other little things mostly maintenance and verifying things work. Here are the interior pics..Not done but close. Need curtains
  3. This is my life goal!
  4. I hate to ask this but I could not find an answer by searching. I have a 1984 Escaper with the FF axle. If anybody can supply the link to an online service manual specific to the FF dually axle I would GREATLY appreciate it! If not... What do I torque the axle flange nuts to?? They are the ones with washers and cone washers. What weight fluid should I be using? Thanks! Tyson
  5. Hi everybody. My name is Tyson and I just bought my first Toyota motorhome. 22r 4 speed My job requires me to work in 7 on 7 off schedules. So work a week and play a week. This also leaves the option of requesting a week off for a 3 week vacation each summer. Update: Decided on 5 weeks off. The plan is to do some traveling. I have a 1984 Escaper with the front door layout. I would've much rather had the rear door layout but pickings are slim. I just finished winterizing it and storing it at my parents farm in a machine shed. I feel the John Deeres will play nice with it. So far the list of things that need some attention are as follows. Fridge: Couldn't get it to do it's thing on electric or gas settings. Update: Fridge works on both electric and LP Heater: It blows but no flame. Cruise control: Haven't touched it. Carburetor: Needs to be cleaned/tuned. Very flat spot at half throttle. Update: Cleaned and nearly tuned Pretty much every seal should be redone as preventative maintenance as well as the roof. Tires Tires TIRES! They're dated 1992 and super dry rotted. Somehow I made the 2 hour 60mph drive home. Update: 6 new tires with two spares I'll post interior pics if your really want them but it's a touch rough. Post clean up/paint interior pics below
  6. Hi I'm Tyson and I just bought a 1985 Toyota Escaper 4carb 4 speed 65k. It has a few rough edges but overall in good shape. Managed the two hour drive home (Stoughton, WI) without issues. Over the winter I plan to clean it up and button up the rough edges so I can go on a few trips in the spring. I think I'll post a thread on it this upcoming week with pictures!
