If you’ve been following Wandering Footsteps long enough, you know our beloved Toyota Land Cruiser BJ75, called Totoyaya, was up for sale last year (we wanted more space for a toilet, shower, and giant kitchen). You might have wondered why, after posting the For-Sale ad online, I went radio-silent.
The reason is that Totoyaya got sold way back in August and I didn’t want to jinx things.
Things got jinxed anyway.
A lovely man from Boston jumped on the opportunity to buy our unique Land Cruiser. He visited us in Montreal, gave us a deposit, and agreed to allow us to keep our home-on-wheels until we found a replacement vehicle.
As you all know, that process took much, much longer than expected.
When we finally found our big bus (which I promise I will formally introduce very soon on the blog!), we alerted our Boston buyer that we were ready to part with Totoyaya. We’d been in touch with him all along these months, and he’d continually expressed 110% conviction that he still wanted the vehicle – but for whatever reason, he backed out at the last moment (it seems like it’s due to distance and bad timing).
So, folks, Totoyaya is back up for sale! Read on for our formal For-Sale Ad:
