Long time lurker here. Never really introduced myself but have benefited greatly from all the wonderful people on thIs forum.
A little about myself. Native to Los Angeles where I still live. Grew up with two Toyota Dolphins that my father purchased when I was around 6 or 7. First one was a mini Dolphin which he then sold and purchased a 22ft Dolphin. When he lost his job and had to relocate us to Miami, we packed up and drove it cross country.
Fast forward a few years and I am back in LA on my second Toyota motorhome. First one an 85 Dolphin that I couldn’t keep up with the maintenance at the time , and now my 88 Sunrader Shorty.(which I will never sell).
Bought it from a very nice young couple that needed the cash for their first home. They were sad to sell it as they had been looking for this exact model for over 2 years. I assured them it would go to a good ,home which it definitely has. I was lucky enough to spot the posting on Craigslist 15 minutes after it had been posted. Sellers location was 30 minutes away. Called immediately and the owner told me his phone was already blowing up with offers. I was at his house in 20 minutes! Shook hands and the next morning met him at a bank and drove off with a huge smile on my face.
49K miles when I bought it. (60k now), auto, great condition for its age.
