Nope, sorry. But welcome to the forum. Hopefully someone who does own a Toyota Class C will see your thread.

Most of them were overweight as they left the factory, even before the driver got in.
It is amazing to see them still running after this long.

I had a 1990 Sunraider on a Toyota chassis for a while. There's a website for them. Just google it. A little too cramped for our family of 3, but it would be great for a single person or a couple who are not large people. I had folks calling me from all over the US when I sold it.

I owned a 1991 Toyota on the Winnebago warrior chassis. V6. Power was just fine. I got 14 mpg. It did not leave the factory overloaded as some state, at least from Winnebago. Be sure to get one of the newer rigs with the V6 and the full floating axle for best durability. Several folks saw it and had positive comments. Sleeps 4 comfortably. Easy to drive and will get into any campground.

They won't tow anything more than perhaps a motorcycle or light fishing boat.

Google for Toyota RV for a good forum dedicated just to these rigs. Very helpful folks.

Winnebago still has the schematics as build sheets available and will send them for free or you can get them off of the above forum.

The 3L V6 had a head gasket recall that either has already been done or Toyota will still do for free. Their later versions of the engine have more power and reliability but that version is still just fine or a fresh rebuild is available locally for about $2500 installed.

There is quite a following for these rigs and they retain resale value. I sold mine for $10k in good shape. Only moved to another rig because of needing a back corner bed.

Good luck.
