I'm in the market for a used Troop Carrier 5 seat RV. How important that they have been serviced every 5,000 kms? Or is 10,000 kms sufficient?

All comments welcome.

Toyota suggest 10,000km intervals for both the 1Hz and the 1HD-FTE turbo-diesel under normal conditions. Most of the service intervals with the Troopie are pretty conservative because they are a commercial vehicle that often do a bit of hard work. Most will get serviced at 10,000k, which is usually fine.

The oil in my 1HD-FTE, is just getting black at 5,000km, but its had 5,000k oil changes since new.

Best of luck in finding one.
