  1. I was on vacation last week and couldn't look much. I clicked your link an hour after you posted it, but it was already deleted. Thanks for trying.
  2. Thank you everyone. While my dream is crushed, i guess it's better to be safe then sorry. I had to pass on it after mulling it over that past week.
  3. Thank you Fred. I found your post about the axle swap last night and I read through it. I think it's something I can handle. These campers are fine with 15 inch rear, and 14 inch front wheels right? I assume the different size tires offset and make them a similar rotational size, anyway. Do all the GM 8 lug 15-inch wheels have the same offset? Or do I need to be careful which Wheels I get also?
  4. Also, would I need to replace the drive shaft? Will everything else hook up?
  5. Could you show me the wheels you are taking about? I found this rear axle and i want to try to find out if it will work, and what wheels i would need. https://www.ebay.com/itm/233977377705?hash=item367a2373a9:g:odIAAOSwGSpggI2k
  6. Thank you! Would this axle work? I can't see how many lug it is in the pic. Do i need to change the front to have matching wheels and tires? https://www.ebay.com/itm/233977377705?hash=item367a2373a9:g:odIAAOSwGSpggI2k
  7. Thank you. By early gm truck, do you mean similar year?
  8. Thank you all. A lot off great information here. Kinda breaks my heart though, lol.
  9. Thank you everyone for the responses. I would like to add that it has seven new tires and roof was resealed last year. Supposedly never leaked. It looks really nice. I am going to look at it next week. I just wish it had the 6 lug rear axle the thing is, I have not seen many of these online for sale at all. And for some reason they all seem to be over $8,000 in the same condition. How risky is the rear axle? Is there something I can check or a daily maintenance routine to keep it running like it is?
  10. Greetings everyone. I have been looking to buy one of these Toyota rv's for about 15 years. There is one for sale near me that appears to be in great condition. I am an auto mechanic by trade, but admit i know little about these. He said its a 2.0L 4 spd manual. 104,000 miles. He said the only thing it needs is the radio antenna and there is a chip in the windshield. There is no generator. I asked about the rear axle because I read they have problems in these years and he said he's pretty sure it's the original 5 lug with the fake dually 2 tires on one wheel setup. Does anyone know if this RV would have the axle problem? Is there anything else I should look for? Is there any newer generators that fit on these with how much work? Is there any other questions I should ask or anything I should look for when I go to see it? He's asking 6000$. Thank you in advance.
