28282Re: 86 Toyota Conquest
- Aug 1, 2007About the only thing I would add to Scott's excellent review of the
Toyota based class C's, is that there was a rear axle recall that
affected most '86 and older units, where an inadequate and dangerous
semi-floating rear axle and "homemade" dual wheel setup, was replaced
with a heavy duty full-floating axle and true deep-dish dual wheels.
Most '86's were upgraded prior to being sold, but some older units
without the upgrade are still out there. The Toyota-Campers group has
some good pictures of the good and bad axles/duals in their photo
section. Basically, if the rear axle has 6-lugs and a large protruding
center hub, it's ok.
