My Toyota Motorhome

  1. While doing some routine maintenance, I was alarmed to find some moisture under the cabover bed today. Our 91 Warrior stays under a cover 24-7 to help prevent this kind of water damage: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007TKJLRW/ref=pe_385040_121528360_TE_dp_1 My alarm turned to complete dismay when I discovered layer after layer of mushy, rotten wood over the cab. I'm going to need your tips/tricks to figure all this out, for sure. To start, here are a few questions: 1) Do covers really offer much protection from rain? 2) Just about everything under the bed is ruined, but the sidewalls seem firm/solid; will I need to tear those vertical sidewalls apart in order to rebuild the "base" area? 3) Does anyone have a drawing that might correspond to the structure of my Winne? 4) In the second photo I'm attaching, you can see the piece that joins the two outer sections of fiberglass skin. There was no trace of adhesive/caulk/butyl where those pieces come together... I know this seam is on the underside, but surely there's still a need for some waterproofing. (?)
  2. Hi All, Just bought my 1990 Winnebago Warrior 10 days ago, I've got to spend all of 4 hours in it so far learning how everything works and was planning to give it a big clean and do some exterior re-sealing this weekend. Very excited to spend more time with the camper and loving this forum! However, I went to go to work this morning and noticed that someone has clipped the back left corner either when driving by camper or when trying to park beside it. They were moving toward the back end and have taken off the side light, opened up the seam between the side and back panel (bending the back panel out of shape) and done some damage to the supporting woodwork inside. Photos are attached. This must of happened only one day before I noticed it because I walk by the camper daily and would have noticed it had it happened earlier. Also the rain overnight has had a chance to get in I've got it covered with plastic for now. Anyway, What do you think the repair job will be like? Something I will need a professional to do, or could I do it myself? I'm super disappointed this happened before I could actually use the camper. My Fiance and I were planning a trip in the next 2 weeks, then we are doing a tour of the States from May through to July so definitely need it in working order again by then. Thanks in advance for all the help! Nick
  3. This is a pretty simple upgrade project that I'm working on, one door at a time. Basically, our 91 Warrior is full of these old cabinets that are darkened and weathered, finish peeling and flaking off, etc. We had originally planned on painting them all white or grey, which seems to be pretty common. But, I have to say, I like real wood, and these are quality oak cabinet doors, so I decided to go with a simple sand-and-refinish. Here's what I did: Remove cabinet doors and their handles. (Easy to do just a couple doors at a time, which is a nice thing about this approach—you can take your sweet time, spread it out over a few weeks or whatever.) Sand each door in the direction of the grain with 150-grit. Do it again with 220, and then remove all dust with shop-vac and wipe down with tack cloth or slightly damp, clean rag. Wipe on a light coat of polyurethane (I'm a big fan of the Minwax satin) with a clean, soft cotton rag. Wait 4 hours. Sand the new finish very lightly with 220 again. Remove dust and wipe on another coat of poly. Leave it alone to cure for a day or two. Reinstall doors and hardware. Here are a few photos of the before-during-and-after. (I also decided to clean and polish the dingy old handles, too. Any decent metal polish should work.)
  4. I am planning on doing some work to the coach of my odyssey. Mainly floor repair, adding an awning and custom roof rack. I am wondering if there is any documentation/schematics out there of what the frame looks like under the skin. It would help to get a visual of the skeleton I am going to be dealing with. Does anyone know if anything exist from odyssey? If not has there been any write ups with pictures of a skin off restoration for a similar odyssey? Thanks
