Couple’s 1991 Toyota Dolphin For South American Travel


Sherry and Andres wanted a way to travel down to Costa Rica to Sherry’s home and family there, so they renovated a 1991 Toyota Dolphin to meet their needs. Lockdown ended up halting their plans for international travel, so they traveled domestically for a while instead!

Their rig has a memory foam mattress above the cab, and a dinette that becomes a second bed for guests and can sit up to four for dinner. Sherry was reluctant to try vanlife without a shower, so they have a nice bathroom in the back of the rig. What do you think?

    I can’t believe the placement of the heater so close to the storage compartment is safe.

      Marine grade stoves, like the Newport model Dickinson unit they have, are specifically made to be safe to use in confining spaces like boats. The combustion process is completely isolated and thus very safe, and it functions like a furnace with direct-vent operation.

      Marine products are typically very functional, safe, and durable but they are also usually very pricey… It’s $1,571.76 for the small model and $2,170.00 for the larger one…

    These old Toyota’s were excellent campers, fairly good gas mileage as well. Toyota dependability. But hard to find a good one for sale. Have fun!
