A buddy of mine wants to pick up a decent Toyota based motorhome. He is from the Southern Interior of British Columbia. If you know of one for sale either in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, or even Stateside (if it is CSA approved) then please drop me a PM.
Walk a mile in someones shoes before you judge them. Drive a mile in someones rig and you've stollen it.

thanks for the info....my friend was aware of that one already....we ended up going down to Vancouver on Saturday to check out a 1978 Toyota Little Chief and he ended up buying it. It has about 138K km's on it, a strong 20R with 4 speed, everything inside works and is clean and well kept, sleeps 4, undercarriage and springs in very nice shape and solid with no flaky rust or anything. He and his family are sure to enjoy it. Oh, and it gets about 20 mpg!
He needs new tires though. 14" rubber. I'm a little concerned that in this day and age he might have difficulty finding 14" rubber with a decent load range. Anybody have any leads on good rubber in 14"?

We are absolutely blessed to be able to live on a 650 acre property, literally a square mile in size. The property stretches from the valley floor and climbs up the side of a mountain where most of it was cleared years ago leaving some nice meadows.
My friends who bought the motorhome came over to spend the weekend so I set them up at nice lookout on the property that overlooks the valley. I had to take the tractor with the brushcutter up there to mow the grass so they could have a nice spot to camp. We visited them for the evening and I snapped a few photos. Sorry, I couldn't get any interior shots of the truck or camper cause their small kids were sleeping inside.
The first picture shows the motorhome and our 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80. The Cruiser is a nice unit with some good options, one of the best being the factory lockers.
