  1. I realize an easy solution would be to put the same style padlock type latch at the top, but ideally I want a solution that doesn’t only work when shut from the outside, because I get a pretty bad draft through this gap at night
  2. My coach door has become slightly bent out on the top and bottom. It’s gotten to the point where if I’m driving over 45mph the wind pulls the door open a little (probably bending it more). I think it’s due to the fact that the previous owner took out the old door latch, and replaced it with a latch with a padlock on the outside, and a homemade deadbolt for locking from the inside. So it’s probably not as flush as it would be with the original lock? Short of getting a new door, any ideas for how to fix this? I noticed there are holes on the door and frame that line up on the top and bottom, is there something that should be there to help keep it closed better?
  3. My airbags deflate overnight from 40 to about 20, and empty in cold weather. The guy I bought the camper off of said this was normal... reading this makes me question this. Where should I start to look into fixing this?
  4. My 1990 micro warrior is named Xena - toyota micro warrior princess
  5. I think my front tires the max is 65, but the back are 50 max
  6. I’m loading it up today and tomorrow, I guess I’ll go weigh it and won’t worry as long as I’m not more than 1000lbs over. I Mathis might be a stupid question but should I adjust the tire pressure? Or keep it at the max psi?
  7. I recently bought a 90 Toyota micro warrior. The plate on the door says the GVWR is 6000lbs. I took it to a weigh station to see how much I could pack in there and it was already at 6000lbs empty (half tank of gas, ~7 gallons fresh water, and me(130lb)) a little about the camper It has the v6, but I’m pretty sure it originally had the 22r, which would account for some extra weight. It also has a hand crank awning which was not stock other than those two things I don’t think there’s anything substantial adding to the weight of the camper. it is a dually with the 6 lug axle I searched the forum and found that it’s a common issue, and that people seem to just go over the GVWR. my question is how in safe is it to go over the GVWR and what amount can I get away with?
  8. It’s not the water pump switch, and I can’t tell if anything happens when I switch it on. I’ll follow the wires tomorrow when I have a chance
  9. I don’t have a hot water heater but I suppose there could have been one once
  10. A few weeks ago I got this sweet 1990 Toyota micro warrior, and I came across this on/off switch on the side of the counter next to the sink. The previous owner said he’s not sure what it’s for. Any ideas? It’s been in the off position and the interior lights still work I haven’t plugged it in to see if it effects the outlets, but since the previous owner said they work and he didn’t touch the switch it shouldn’t effect those. I haven’t had a chance to see where the purple and green wire head to.
  11. I've lived in a 29 ft converted school bus for two years, and a 19ft converted dodge van for 6 months. I think I could get used to this pretty fast
  12. I searched the internet for a while and couldn't find anything quite like it. other early 90's hiace/townace/liteace go for anywhere from $9000 to $20000, depending on condition and if they're 4x4 or 2x4. and those are just the van, not the camper set up
  13. This 1992 Hiace diesel camper is available for sale in my area. I'm having trouble finding anything like it to compare to for price. I'm also really bummed it isn't 4x4. The sellers ad " For sale is my 1992 Toyota Hiace Cruising Cabin 2WD RHD van with automatic transmission and Diesel engine w/ 119,000 original miles. This campervan was built in Japan and has plenty of storage space. It clocks at a very low 119,000 miles, which is really only getting started for Toyota's 3L model diesel engine, known to exceed 500,000 miles before a rebuild is required. This van has been very well taken care of. I've driven her all over the United States, Canada and Baja California with zero maintenance issues and great fuel mileage. You can drive this Toyota instead of constantly breaking down and fixing your Volkswagen Bus. Fridge, Sink, Lights, GPS Nav+Bluetooth, Kenwood Speakers, Subwoofer & TV run day and night w/ 2 deep cell batteries charged w/ 200 watts of semi flexible solar panels."
  14. Did you have a chance to drive it around? Was there any rust? I would be concerned that the new carpet is because it was effected by hurricane Harvey.
