1988 Toyota Tarago GLi mini van camper 8 seater
Up for sale is my much loved 1988 Toyota Tarago GLI with 270,000kms on the clock.If you’re into an outdoor lifestyle she’s awesome. The back seats can be folded down to make a double bed. The moonroof opens up so you can watch the stars or cool down on a hot day. There’s loads of room in the back, the seats can be folded up and handy for carry items like bikes around. I’m an avid MTB rider so it was perfect for that. Can also transport 8 people.While getting on in years she’s still a solid van, runs well with low maintenance. If you research Tarago’s of this era you’ll discover the engines in them were built to last.The body is in excellent condition for it’s age also. Straight and never been in an accident since I’ve had her and from what I can tell never with previous owner(s).While I can’t be 100% sure I suspect I’m the third owner. I purchased her back in 2009 with 140,000kms on the clock. The previous owner didn’t provide any service history but I have full service history for the time I’ve had her.The interior is also in excellent condition for it’s age.Stock key features- Keyless entry- Front sunroof- Middle electric moon roof- Front and rear bullbars- Dash matThings I’ve had done- Tinted windows- Immobiliser installed- JVC flip CD player installed- Front and rear speakers upgraded JBL’s 4” front, 6” rear- Tow bar wiring redoneI’m selling without RWC. While overall the van is in great condition for it’s age I know of two items which need to be addressed for RWC.There are two sections of rust on the rear tailgate, lhs and rhs at the bottom of the window. You can see these in two of the pictures. I’ve had this assessed by a panel beater and have been quoted between $300-$500 to repair. The lower is to do a more basic job to pass RWC, the higher is to fix properly for long term.The front wiper jets are blocked. The pump works, the lines just need to be cleaned. There are instructions on how to do this on the internet. Just takes some time. The rear wiper jet works fine.I can recommend a trustworthy mechanic where I’ve serviced the van for the past couple of years. They do roadworthies. The van was serviced in January, suspension was replaced costing $1k. No other mechanical issues were flagged.It’s been a tough decision to let her go, I’m quite attached and taken great car to look after her. Would love to see her go to a good home.
