We just retired and are lucky to take over the use (and costs) of my father-in-laws Toyota Dolphin, 1992, but the chassis is either 1990 (per father in law) or 1991 (per dealership), but not having much luck in finding places that can work on the clutch and brakes, (and was told by the Toyota dealership that we have to replace the timing belt every 6 years, and wondered about that frequency). I would love to hear about any auto repair shops that you use and can recommend, that will repair these small motor homes.  We are looking forward to driving it to all states, so any state info will be welcome.  

We thought the manual clutch was going out, as slipping when on hills, but the dealership said the clutch was fine.  Kinda scratching our heads about that one.

Is your Toy a V-6 with a 5 speed transmission, you have a Unicorn Motor Home.

If things are slipping going up hill the clutch IS slipping!!! Why its slipping can be many problems, find a new shop.

Yes, it is a 3 L V-6 manual transmission, 5 speed.  Now I need to learn why its a Unicorn.
