Hello Fran,

According to the NADA Guides book I have they made 3 models:

M-180-RD (rear dinette?) - 18' - Used Retail $1970
M-200-RB (rear bedroom?) - 20' - Used Retail $2090
M-220-SD (side dinette?) - 22' - Used Retail $2440

They were made in Ormond Beach, FL from 1976 to 1985. It says no further info available after 1985.

I just bought what sounds like the same rv. Do you have a extra copy of the keystone manual. There are some things I would like to look up. its a 1978 and it runs great. I also enjoy the MPG It gets. Chris

We've owned 3 Toyota-based class C campers in our years of camping, and we loved them all. I don't know what kind of info you are looking for . . . but the insides of the campers are much the same as any other class C. We owned a Heritage and two Sunraders. If you have specific questions, I'll be glad to try to answer them.

What little I remember of the Toyota based small Class C MH like what you have, the only real
weak area was the rear axle bearings, so that is an area to have inspected and make sure you'rs
is in good working order.

Also a little unstable in high winds, so keep that in mind when out on the highways.

On the manuals, maybe the person who has them would be willing to photo copy copies for you
for the cost of the process and postage?

I just bought a 1979 Micro Mini. I am in need of a manual. I would be happy to pay someone for a manual or a photocopy of a manual. I am trying to get the electrical system working. I can trace everything down bit-by-bit, but I believe a manual would be very helpful.
