It's a 1985 Toyota 4x4....non turbo motor. It's in Calgary, Alberta but has a BC registration. It starts on starting fluid but so far diagnostics say the fuel pump is dead. Body wise it's in really good shape. It's leaked down the inside from the side and back windows and needs the interior wall panels replaced. That's one of the first things I'm going to do besides drop the tank and get it running properly. Any interest in it as it sits? I'm open to offers but if it's not high enough, I will be driving all over North America this summer lol.
Hey I sent you a private message

Just for an update due to emails about this Sunrader. I have completely tore out and rebuilt the rear interior, gone through all the appliances and got them working, installed a new toilet, kitchen counter, taps, and a long list of interior items. Fresh paint inside and is ready for camping or living. Mechanically, it just passed an out of province safety inspection meaning it's mechanically fit. Lots of new parts that I've installed. It's now insured, plated and on the road. It was imported into Canada in 1997 and has sat in a storage yard since 1998. It now runs great and has 103,000 miles on it. Lockers were installed in both the front and rear axle by the original owner and 31" tires and 15x10 rims are now on it. Has the original axle under it still but I picked up a disc brake 10 bolt GM code Gt5 G80 (4:10 posi) rear end for it. Has five solar panels on the roof and a new digital charge controller. I have well over 200 hours into rebuilding this thing. It looks amazing inside and out. There's still some small things to finish but all the major work is done except the axle. I also need a set of rear fender skirts for it if anyone knows where to buy them. I just won a contract for a new project going on here in the city and won't have time this year to finish it or even use it. If someone makes me a high enough offer, they can finish the last few little things themselves or just use it as it is. 95% of the work is done. I'm in no hurry to sell it and don't need the space or money, so lowball offers will be ridiculed. I will send a list of all new parts and work done to serious inquiries. I'm going to list it for sale eventually but I'm still torn about it. I love this cool little thing and I get a crowd around it every time I take it out around the city.

Just so you know, new wheel well flares are available from the guy that owns the original molds, about $300 each.

I'm still debating on selling because I know I'll never find another one. I'm thinking about swapping rear ends this weekend if I have time. With the new rear end under it, I wouldn't consider anything less than $15,000 U.S. It's not a rebuild project as all that has been done. My refurb list is substantial and I have pretty much every part to finish the last few things. The thought of selling it is making my head spin. I have well over 200 hours into it as this was a full time project for the last few months. I was planning a Vegas/Arizona/Texas trip with it the end of August but my latest contract is supposed to start middle of August and will consume my life till next spring. I have a warehouse I'll be putting it in by the end of August for storage if I don't sell it and I'll finish it in the spring. Maybe I'll actually post it the Toyota Motorhome forums if my nerves actually let me lol

MMMMM Paul, isn't that kind of like dangling the old carrot in front of the horse? To me, if you're not sure of selling it you should remove your posts. Another person did the same thing not long ago, was hard to get a hold of, traveled all over and was basically wishy washy about it. Really turned a lot of serious folks off from possibly buying it. Just sayin' for some info to you. There ended up being quite a few rather, ah, hostile comments.

Wow...well....I guess I know who I won't be selling to already. I guess this isn't the place to post it for sale. Sorry to all the other members that may have wanted it. I'll be deleting my posts and listing it elsewhere. Thanks for the advice

Not what I said at all Paul. You listed it but not with a definite tone or comments of it really being for sale, post #24. Just commented to let you know how your post comes off to potential buyers and reactions from it to readers. If you should decide to sell it, by all means post it again.

There are several MAJOR Toyota motorhome sites where this would be far more appropriate and appreciated.


FWIW: If you really want to sell this, you are wasting you time here, it's not the venue for serious buyers for it.
