      Thanks Fred, I will hit you up if i need any advise.   I just finally got it off the trailer, once i get a key made I will see what I have got myself into.  The inside is wrecked lots of rat droppings and a wonderful smell to go with it. Even if the title says 79 you are telling me its a 78, do i need to change the title then.

      1979 was a transition year for Toyota pickups. Up until 6/79 Toyota rebadged it’s 1978 model as a 1979. These early 1979’s will have 4 headlights. Starting on 7/79 a totally new body style was developed. It is easily identified as it only has two headlights vs four. Most mechanicals are interchangeable. Body parts will be different.

       

      Your title is accurate. Motorhome manufacturers often make coach shells in advance before having a chassis to mount them on. Many times they have leftover chassis’s from the prior year. 1979 was a unique year for Toyota trucks.

       

      I’ve attached some trade publication articles as well as a picture of my 1979. You can easily see the coach difference between 1978and 1979 productions.

    • Been there, done this... Remove trim, remove butyl tape, cleaned everything, used Dycor lap sealant over gap, installed new butyl tape, reinstalled trim. No leaks in the next 5 years that I had the Toy.

       

      Not PVC roof, but EPDM "rubber roofing". It requires a squeaky clean roof to bond.
