Class C / Oswego, IL

Yes, this is that Toyota RV you have been looking for! It is rare and unique especially because it is NOT a project! Just the opposite — everything has been carefully gone over to be as nice as possible. If you are seeking a Toyota RV that feels like new, this one is close to it. The new owners should not have to do anything to it, except to personalize it with extra enhancements. If you need a Toyota RV that is “turn-key” as they say, then this might be the best one for you.

Restoring Toyota RVs is our hobby. My assistants and I carefully refurbished this coach for over a year to be optimally usable for the next owners. We are experienced in what we do and take pride in our work. There is a lot of satisfaction in putting one back on the road as it was meant to be with everything working again as perfectly as we can make it. Now click "Read More" below to see the entire description and a link to 120 photos in total.

"Way above average" aptly describes this coach. The reasons will become obvious when you read this entire description of its many features and upgrades. Most Toyota RVs that come up for sale need a fair amount of time and attention, and probably a good amount of money to make them comfortable and trouble-free again. Here now instead, is one that is ready to take camping right away. What you will read about consists of almost 100 different items and upgrades that the new owner WON’T have to deal with because we have fixed or improved or added them already.

First of all, this model is a Winnebago Warrior, which it is considered to be the best built of any brand of Toyota RV overall, but nicely-restored ones like this are not that common.

Secondly, it has a V-6 engine (not a 4 cylinder) so you have more adequate power for climbing hills, and you have the ability to tow a moderate load. Interstate speeds of 65 mph are easy to maintain. The ride in the cab is much quieter and the seats more comfortable than earlier models. Mini RVs with a Toyota chassis are increasingly sought after because of their longevity and great gas mileage, especially compared to any other RVs of the same size and price. This one with automatic transmission gets up to 16 miles per gallon; that’s about twice the mpg of an American motor RV of the same vintage.

Thirdly, tires are recently installed (Yokohama Y356 - proper load range D). Chrome wheel inserts (an upgrade) are installed on all the wheels. This vehicle has the full-floating one-ton rear axle and six-lug wheels throughout. A spare tire (with new cover) is on the rear.

Additionally, this original engine/chassis has only moderate miles on it -- only 76,200 which is slightly less than average for a Toyota RV. We personally know of several well-maintained Toyota Winnebago RVs like this with over 200,000 miles that are still on the road and being enjoyed as much as ever.

In order to insure that this vehicle is as roadworthy as possible, in the last year it has had the following engine and chassis work performed.
— New engine battery
— New front brakes
— Oil change
— Power steering serviced
— New steering bumpers
— New battery isolator
— New underhood foil liner for heat insulation and for a quieter ride in the cab
An inspection by a certified mechanic determined that this Toyota engine has no engine or transmission performance issues at this time.
— No significant fluid leaks - the oil and transmission fluid are clean; coolant is full
— Transmission shifts properly
— Spark plugs and air filter are OK
— The u-joints, tie rod ends, springs, shocks, & wheel bearings all look good
— Muffler and exhaust system are in good order
— Front brakes 90% left; rear brakes 30% left
Previous records show it has already had the three important (expensive) major services required for Toyota RVs:
— Head Gasket Recall work performed (August 1991)
— Timing Belt changed, along with water pump (at 60,000 miles)
— Valves adjusted at the same time
Additional previous services:
— New leaf springs
— New shocks
— Rear differential fluid replaced
— Transmission serviced
— Tune up, spark plugs, and injectors cleaned
— New belts and hoses
— Steering damper replaced
— Undercoating applied
Service records dating back to 2000 confirm that there has been ongoing attention to maintaining all components of the engine and chassis in better-than-average condition. With so many of these maintenance items taken care of, you can have confidence that this RV will perform better than most others of this vintage. (Specifically, it is MUCH more apt to be free of all the unexpected surprises that often come with used RVs that are for sale because their sellers just want them gone.)

The exterior of the RV is flat-sided fiberglass, which is considered more desirable than corrugated siding. The surface has now been polished and detailed, and the exterior stripes which were faded have all been freshly painted. Other exterior areas have been repainted as well. The rear tail light assemblies have been replaced with new ones. The outside mirrors have been refurbished to look nearly new. If you didn't know, finding a nice-looking exterior on a Toyota RV is a hard thing to come by.

FLOOR PLAN specifics:
— Extra-long Full-size over-cab bed sleeps two adults
— Sofabed behind the driver makes a cozy bed for two
— The dinette makes into a shorter twin bed (meaning it can sleep a total of five)
— Kitchen (stove, microwave, double stainless sink, and refrigerator/freezer) is located in the center
— Bathroom in the rear has a sink, toilet, separate shower, and a tall closet for storage
— Bathroom has a pocket door for privacy
— 21 feet in length overall (easy to park in a regular parking space)

Additional UPGRADES -- This coach includes all the standard features plus these SIGNIFICANT upgrades compared to most other models of Toyota RVs:

After many months of meticulous attention to details, this coach is now ready to drive and comfortably camp in again. What you will be getting with this RV is the peace of mind that the multiple issues that regularly come with used Toyota RVs have now already been taken care of for you.

The above average price of $25,950 is in keeping with the time and effort and expense that it has taken us to restore it to be in the way-above-average condition that it is. The fact that we have already spent so many thousands of dollars on it means that you shouldn't need a huge budget for repairs over and above the purchase price. This is a significant factor because most buyers are not aware of the often extensive expenses that will likely be required for most other used Toyota RVs that are out there for sale — the additional money you’ll need for neglected engine work, broken appliances, etc. However as we've said, this specific RV has already had all three of the very expensive major 60,000 mile engine services performed; as well as now having a replacement refrigerator, upgraded roof air conditioner, new tires, awning, and state-of-the-art electronics.

If you are seriously interested in having this be your new Toyota RV but are not close by, a modest deposit can hold it for you. (Deposit applies to the purchase price of course.) It is located in Oswego, Illinois. Transportation from Chicago area airports can be arranged for buyers from out of the area.

Phone calls will be given higher priority over email replies. The right next owner for this Toyota Winnebago Warrior RV is someone who knows a real gem when they see one.
