|Anyone still make Toyota RV's?||Kevin||10-18-04|
|Does any company still make RV's using Toyota chasis?|
The latest models I've seen where 1992's and 93's. If they don't why did they stop making them?
|Re: Anyone still make Toyota RV's?||Jim||11-30-04|
From what I've found out Toyota chasis are no longer used for RV applications due to liability issues. The Toyota drive train and chasis frames are not stout enough to haul and pull heavy loads.Remember these are the little Toyota trucks that are being used for RV conversion. People try to tow heavy loads anyway...thus causing various problems. Some of the problems i've seen are damaged rear axles, and in extreme cases bent or bowed frames...which causes the RV body to give / bend. I saw a Toyota 22' RV that the frame was bent and it caused the door to jam and cound not be opened...Also the Roof / side had a bad water leak. Toyota RV's are ok as a Light duty RV...LOL...but who actually wants a RV that you can't use for towing...not many...
Perhaps Toyota's newer truck..the Tundra could be used. Maybe the Nissan Titan.

|An RV on a Tundra chassis...? If they build it I will come. If you hear anything, let me know.|

|The real reason is import quotas on chassis not considered passenger vehicles. It's the same reason you are no longer able to buy an import diesel in a small truck. It would cost Toyota (and other importers) a unit for which they could make much more profit, such as a large earth-mover, etc.|

|The Tundra is built here in the US why would that affect in Import numbers?|

|Wish TOYOTA still HAD RV'S, It was NOT TOYOTA'S FAULT, IT WAS THE MANUFACTURE OF THE MOTOR HOME'S. THEY MADE THEM TOO HEAVY FOR THE TRUCK.WHEN THE WHEELS IN THE BACK OF SOME OF THEM BENT OR CAME OFF, THERE WAS A LAW SUITE.TOYOTA WON. THE ONLY MANUFACTURE WHO IS STEEPING UP TO THE PLATE TO FIX THE PROBLEM IS DOLPHIN. TOYOTA MAKES GREAT PRODUCTS AND ARE VERY DEPENDABLE IN MY BOOK....|
