PostSubject: New to Toyota Hiace   Wed May 02, 2018 7:36 pm

Hi, Just joined this site as I have purchased a 1994 Toyota Hiace Camper Van. Not used it yet!! We had a Motor Home previously, an Autosleeper, but sadly, my Husband died very suddenly and I was left with it.
However, I have just taken a risk and downsized to a Camper Van!!

Am now trying to organise everything to fit into new van, it won't work so will have to reduce the amount of equipment I carry around!!!!!
It's a new life on my own with the Camper so will probably be asking for help with various problems on this site!

Anne

Hi Anne,

Welcome to Hiace Ownership. You've made a great choice. So sorry to hear about your husband, but good on you for sticking with camping.

You should find, due to the downsize, that it will highlight all things you used to take away in your Autosleeper that you don't really need.

Any questions we're all here to help.

Rich

Welcome!

Sorry to hear of your loss. Adapting to the Hiace should keep you busy, I used to travel around on a bike so whenever I think space in the van is small I remember how much bigger it is than a topbox Smile

Also a Hiace is more economical and easier to park Smile.

Welcome, Anne and congrats on choosing a hiace. As a newbie myself I have to say I have found this forum incredibly useful.

It's true that space is surprisingly limited and it would be interesting to know what you chuck out and what you leave in.

Thanks everyone for welcome and support!!!
Can anyone tell me about the 4WD? Does it alter on the front wheel, it seems to be seized up.
Is it a mechanic job?
Thanks
Anne

What do you mean exactly? What exactly does or does not work?
Do you have a 4wd button in the dash? And perhaps a hub that you can turn on the front wheels?
