Toyota motor homes

Would like to hear from present and recent owners of Toyota Motor homes. Good, bad features and reasons you have one or got rid of one. Also, if this would be a good choice for an aging couple that want to lose the stress of a 30 footer towing a car. What is one worth; let's say with V6 with 80 t0 90000 miles in very good condition? Have any of you installed a generator? Don't bother to suggest one of the newer Class Bs that go for $40K and up used. Too much.

Toyota motor homes

We need to consider downsizing and simplifying from a 30 ft. Class C towing a car to a much smaller unit and not towing. Discovering the older Toyota truck motorhomes. Seems like one would work; except how in the heck do you find a place for stuff to take along. Amazed to see that there is no outside storage. How do you deal with this? Do any of you tow a very small utility trailer? But then darn that's back to towing something. Second question. We looked at a 1992 Dolphin model sort of reconditioned. Pretty nice; but $28000?

RE: Members who have had by-pass surgery.

After years of watching my weakening aortic valve, I went ahead with open heart surgery in april 2011. Had a mechanical aortic valve installed along with 1 bypass and repair of the aorta. Not quite what you will have but the open heart part should be the same. I won't really try to spell out details but you already know there will be discomfort, etc. The worst part for me was lots of coughing(lungs) and some glitches which extended my hospital stay and required readmission; I think not terribly unusual. Once I was fit for rehab then improvement was good. We cancelled a planned seasonal job at Glacier NP because it would have been early for lifting. But we still visited the Park and hiked at 6000 ft. in mid-summer. Also have a pacemaker and everything works extremely well. I do anything I want including hiking, biking and walking. My 77 years is starting to slow me down now more than anything heart related.

RE: Class C vs Trailer for Cross country with family? Help

I doubt there is a definitive answer. RVing with 5 is tough. A MH owner once said "I don't care how big a MH is, it's really just for 2". Sleeping might be the easiest part. It's meals and being all in during bad weather, etc. But no doubt you're determined to make it work. We've had pop-up, trailer, small 5th wheel and now a 30 ft. MH towing a small hatchback. I prefer the MH and having the car to run around in. We have a queen bed and would sleep 3 kids. Not saying easily.

RE: Yellowstone and cold temps

If hooked to water, unhook at night. Possibly your tank drain valves could freeze but no worry until it hits mid 20s or lower for several hours. Most of the Park is around 8000 feet.

Brake working?

We have a Blue Ox Patriate 2 brake for the Ford Focus we are towing. Recently had some problems and nothing on the in cab monitor screen. I think we have the problem resolved but my question is how do you know if your auxillary brake is working? Probably the monitor will tell you but discovered our monitor wasn't working. And some systems don't even have an in cab monitor. The toad has to be moving because its inertia based so you can't sit still and watch the pedal. And you can't really feel the brake work either. Ours has worked and not worked and I can't tell the difference.

RE: Buying a Motorhome not a mechanic

New or used? Size? Class? Used is recommended because they depreciate huge. We bought an Itasca, Made by Winnebago, 7 years ago and it is now 17 years old for $24000. It's a 30 ft. Class C. We think the quality is about as good as it gets yet we have spent thousands to repair and upgrade which is just what you do with a MH. If I replace we will stick with used Winnebago.
