Overland Classifieds :: 2009 Toyota Tacoma 4×4 with AT Overland Habitat Truck Camper

There can be no denying the growing popularity of truck-based campers within the overlanding community. These vehicles provide everything you require for the road less travelled and nothing you don’t. This lovely example, a 2009 four-door Toyota Tacoma, benefits from the TRD Sport 4×4 package and has covered 129,000 miles. From the Seller: “Single owner,…

Macs, Macs tie downs

Mac’s Tie-Down Solutions

Mac’s manufactures a fantastic range of tie-down solutions with infinite possibilities. The company was established in 1993 when its founder Colin McLemore recognised a need for tie-down systems for trailers and truck beds. The company eventually released their patented VersaTie Tracks and Connectors, a system that has since “become the standard of the industry.” Mac’s…

Ombraz Armless Sunglasses

Sunglasses are an essential accessory for adventures, but they can also be fragile, poor fitting, easy to lose, and fog up the moment you do anything strenuous. Ombraz (pronounced “Ohm-bruhs,” originating from the Italian word ombra for shade) promises to end these drawbacks with their armless sunglasses, designed to be the ultimate outdoor adventure shades. …

Overland Classifieds :: 2018 4×4 144-inch High Roof Overlanding Mercedes Sprinter

The Mercedes Sprinter is one of the most popular live-in vehicles, and for a good reason. Parts are available internationally (bolstered by Mercedes’ fabled global parts network), engines are powerful and relatively economical, reliability is excellent, and a considerable range of wheelbase options (including compact, standard, long, and extra-long) exist. If that wasn’t enough, the…

Overland Classifieds :: 1998 Toyota Tacoma TRD Complete Off-Road Camper Build

I’m a sucker for minimalist go-faster–style campers, which incorporate the absolute essentials and nothing else. These rigs are relatively cheap to run, are field-serviceable, lightweight, capable of highway speeds, and comfortable whatever the terrain. The modular design also means that the camper shell and overlanding accessories are easily transferable to another truck if required. This…

Overland Classifieds :: 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser

Is it just me, or has the FJ Cruiser aged like a fine wine? It looked great when first released, and despite its maturity, it still looks fresh, unique, and purposeful. Interestingly, the FJ started life as a concept vehicle, but the reaction was so positive at the unveiling that Toyota decided to put it…

Overland Classifieds :: 2002 Acela Monterra Overland Platform

If you’re seriously considering life on the road or a long-term overlanding trip, this 2002 Acela Monterra is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a unique, meticulously built, serviced, and upgraded all-terrain base vehicle. The process of building a reliable overland truck from scratch is a truly love–hate journey, and can easily consume the entirety of…

Overland Classifieds :: 1995 Mitsubishi Montero 5-Speed

I can’t take it anymore—the sleepless nights, the constant lying to myself, the weight of the guilt. It’s time to come clean. My name is Jack Mac, and I’m obsessed with the latest overlanding modifications and accessories. I continually talk myself into upgrading the Syncro, but the truth is, I could’ve explored Central Asia the…

Overland Classifieds :: Nitro Gear Ford Superduty 4×4 RV

At first glance, today’s classified appears to be an EarthRoamer, but it’s a one-off custom build. The Nitro camper began as a 2004 Xplorer Xcursion RV on an F-450 4WD chassis and has been completely reimagined and heavily modified to create a go-anywhere expedition vehicle. Look familiar? Chris Cordes featured the build on Expedition Portal…

Mitsubishi Delica L300 4×4 – “SLACKERvan”

The Mitsubishi L300 4×4 has a cult-like following in the world of overlanding, and for good reason. This “small but mighty” vehicle is built on a modified Pajero chassis and thus benefits from the go-anywhere performance of a proper 4WD, whilst offering the space and functionality of a short wheelbase van. I love compact overland…

Overland Classifieds :: Isuzu Expedition Rig

We’ve recently had a number of Mitsubishi Fusos listed on the forum, and at first glance, you might be fooled into thinking this is another. However, despite the remarkable similarity, this is, in fact, an Isuzu NPR Crew Cab. Now, I have to admit, I don’t know a huge amount about the Isuzu brand (despite…
