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, 1999-2004 has the 4 ltr. Turbo Intercooled diesel engine).
* HZB56 (manual or automatic, 4.2 NON turbo. In the year ranges of 1993 thru to 2003
* XZB50 and XZB51 (manual or automatic 4.1 Turbo Intercooled)

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 primarily in the snow covered Northern area's of Japan.
Very hard to find a good one though, extremely hard. Hard to obtain parts for too.
"Let's build our own":
We are now offering Toyota Coasters fully converted to 4x4, with high and low range, single rear wheels, built to suit Australian conditions, MANUAL 6 speed gearbox, high lift suspension, bullbar, exterior Donaldson pre-aircleaner, wheelarch flares to stop gravel rash.
They 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 $90.000 mark for the 2003/2006 models supplied as a bus. Motorhome conversion $50.000
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, Gary Junction HWY WA, Great Central Road WA, Gunbarrel HWY WA, Strezlecki Track SA, even Fraser Island QLD 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...
