Toyota Coasters are very popular for Motorhome Conversions.
We can source Toyota Coasters locally, or from Japan. If you are after a Automatic, we will need to source that in Japan as Toyota never brought automatics into Australia. We can however easily get them from Japan.
The models we can currently import are:
* Anything manufactured before 01-01-1989.
* HDB51 (manual or automatic, 4.2 Turbo diesel). In the year ranges of 1993 to 2003.
* HDB50 (manual or automatic, 4.2 Diesel). In the year ranges of 1993 to 2003.
* HDB31 (manual or automatic, 4.2 Turbo diesel). In the year ranges of 1989 to 1993.
* BB58 (factory all-wheel-drive model, automatic only, no low range, dual wheels at the rear, 1993/1999 has the 4 ltr. diesel engine, 1999-2003 has the 4 ltr. Turbo Intercooled diesel engine).
* XZB50 and XZB51 (manual or automatic 4.1 Turbo Intercooled)
Years 2003 to current.
WE ARE NOW ALSO CONVERTING A COASTER TO 4X4, FOR USE AS BUS OR MOTORHOME, RING FOR MORE INFO.
It'll have super single rear wheels as an optional choice, as well as high/low range as standard. It'll have the same engine as the current ones, so 4.1 ltr. Turbo Intercooled 4 cyl. diesel as commonly used on 2003 and later Toyota Coasters in Australia.
Locally sourced Toyota Coasters will come in a few different models, to start the 1983 to 1993 models:
* HB30 (LWB upto 1990, 4ltr. diesel, manual)
* HZB30 (LWB 1990-1993, 4.2ltr. diesel, manual)
* RB20 (SWB 2.2 ltr. petrol, manual)
* BB20 (SWB 3.4 ltr. diesel, manual)
Locally sourced Toyota Coasters made from 1993 untill 2003 include:
* HZB50 (LWB 4.2 ltr. diesel, manual)
* BB40 (SWB 3.4 ltr. diesel, manual)
All of the Coasters can be driven on Car Licence providing they are suitably modified and engineer approved. (we can do this here).

And below is a 1986 Coaster Turbo diesel with Automatic transmission that we imported and fitted out for it's owner. This bus had only done a amazing 36.000 kms when imported!!!
And this locally sourced Coaster, a 1991 HZB30 Long Wheelbase model,
A 4x4 Coaster??
Is there such a thing??
Yes there is. But they are very hard to find as not many were made and most are rusted out as they were used primarely in the snow covered Northern area's of Japan.
Very hard to find a good one though, extremely hard. And even then, there is a few downsides of them!! (ask me)
That's why we have decided to convert our own! (similar to this blue one)
We are now offering a 2003 Toyota Coaster fully converted to 4x4, with high and low range, with dual rear wheels (or optional super singles), built to suit Aussie conditions, MANUAL 6 speed gearbox, high lift suspension, bullbar, exterior Donaldson pre-aircleaner, wheelarch flares to stop gravel rash. This particular one is fitted with 18 coach seats with integrated lap sash seatbelts!
It can be supplied as a fully operational tour bus or stripped out ready for a motorhome conversion. Of course we are available for a custom motorhome conversion as well. Contact us if you are interested.
It'll cost around the $80.000 mark for the 2003 model... 02 6663 7071
These are ideal for a on road/off road motorhome. They have the space for all the comforts of home, ride like only a Coaster rides like, and still has the ability to take you off the beaten track. I'm thinking Gibb River Road WA, Cape York QLD, Gunbarrel HWY WA, Strezlecki Track SA, even Fraser Island shouldn't be too much of an issue for these. Just let a bit of air out of the tyres though, on the soft sand...
