My Toyota Motorhome


Found 11 results

  1. Hi all, It's so exciting 😃! My wife and I are completely new Toyota RV Owners since just yesterday I bought a 1991 Odyssey Americana in central Pennsylvania. It is the Fargo 21.5' configuration and is in fairly good condition overall, low mileage (68K miles) and seems to run fine. I just drove it about 60 miles yesterday to pay a surprise visit to my parents and tomorrow I'll begin the 800 mile journey home to Wisconsin. We are very much looking forward to hitting the road with it. When my grandparents retired in the early 1960s they bought a "Scottie" camper and drove across the cou
  2. My wife and I are close to purchasing our first Toyota motorhome. The vehicle in question (1989 Dolphin) looks great overall and the current owner clearly has invested time, materials, and energy in making upgrades. The ad on craigslist shows part of a reconstruction process to address past water damage. It looks like mainly to the overcab area and the exterior portion of the rear wall. The owner also freely states that he replaced the right side and rear framing with treated oak instead of fir as well as moisture resistant wood in the overcab area. On one hand, I appreciate seeing the
  3. I have a rear window leak. I've heard all I need to do is pull apart the rear window, clean around put in some butyl tape and maybe add some extra silicone, and put it back together. I also have an overcab leak, it seems to be lined up with the seam over my overcab, so I guess I can pull off the bar that goes over it, clean it up, apply some butyl tape there, and put it back on? Is Dicor still the best thing to pour onto my roof? The thing is, my entire toyhome seems to have tape that uh... is probably well over 10 years old. Should I just take my toy to someone and have them r
  4. Hello all! I am new to the Toyhome world and would love to know more. I have an '87 Escaper with the rear driver's side bathroom (shower toilet combo pan). The other night the fiancé flushed the Thetford Magic IV and the handle stuck causing the toilet to fill up. I caught it before it overflowed but the blackwater tank was full so the water would not recede. When I went outside to dump the tank I noticed a lot of dripping, a whole lot actually. Thank goodness we hadn't been there long so there wasn't any blackwater actually leaking. What I am asking is, is there some sort of overflow val
  5. Hey I'm new to the community and let me say I'm very excited to be apart of this, me and my girlfriend have recently purchased a 1982 Toyota Minicruiser. We're going to need any advice you can give us in the coming weeks/months as we will be getting into a full renovation. Already we've found water damage and rott(see pics), I've looked through a good few threads here and noticed a lot of complete restorations so I know we're in the right place for help!! Thanks Jacob & Jess
  6. I thought I'd start a thread on dealing with the bit of rot I discovered in the process of painting the interior of the RV. I had begun the painting process in the kitchen area and was working my way forward. I was due to head to my daughter's with the RV to stay and help her out for a few days after the birth of her 3rd and would be sleeping in the RV while parked in their yard. We have been having an extra wet winter here on Vancouver Island (and that's saying ALOT!). I had been investigating drip from the over cab vent and had been catching the drips with a basin. It was a slow drip and h
  7. Noticed water under stove area. There are 2 "headers" (Winnebago terminology) where 4 lines connect and a winter drain valve exists. 2 sets (hot / cold). Could not see source so I decided to "exercise" drains. OOPS! This camper has spent every winter in Florida - doubt those drains were ever "used". After popping the valves, they would not reseat. The pictures show what I made to replace the old "quest" fittings. Apparently "quest" was the mfg of the grey plastic plumbing used (per hardware store guy who claimed knowledge and per a RV dealer parts person who also sang the same story).
  8. Hey fellows toyoters . New to the forum and trying my first post ! My 1991 itstaca spirit has been leaking power steering fluid for the last 5000 miles and it is getting worst !!!! it started leaking a little on the passenger side and now it also on the driver side and with the fix leak bottles from Walmart it did not even slow down the leaking . So now I have a place to work on it for a couple of weeks and I look at all these oily parts and don t even know where to start !!!!! kind of like a panic attack ! But , I know there is a solution for everything , A
  9. Hi everybody, This forum has been really great for finding info and answering several of my questions, so I figured I’d post my predicament and ask for your sage advice. I recently acquired a 1984 Sunrader 18’ with the 4-cylinder 22R engine and a 4-speed manual transmission. The odometer reads about 191,xxx miles, tho I have a receipt that says the speedometer (which includes the odometer) was replaced in 1998 or so. The exhaust was completely replaced by the previous owner from the catalytic converter on back, and the carburetor is freshly rebuilt. Previously it had a leak in o
  10. Hey guys, my name is Tim and I've been lurking on here for a while and figured it was time to join since I will be looking at a '85 Sunrader tomorrow. It's a 21" 2wd with 139k+ miles, EFI, a manual 4 spd and a 6 lug floating rear end. I was a Lexus and toyota master tech for 13 yrs so the mechanical issues I might run into don't bother me, but this is potentially my first RV and I don't know much about how things are supposed to operate on them. I can handle some external cosmetic issues but don't want to buy someone else's problem child. Since this is an older RV, I'm sure it's in need of
  11. just got a 91 itasca spirit which I like very much, but it has a couple of water issues. when I fill the water supply tank I get a steady slow drip from two small drain pipes directly under the fresh water tanks, doesn't stop until the water tank is empty. Number two is the two drain valves in the cabinet under the stove leak when the lines are pressurized by the pump. I started to disconnect the lines thinking I could just replace them but found that they were difficult to remove, guessing that since they were drains they must drain into something, probably the waste water tank directly under
