The Toyota Sequoia is often overlooked for overlanding, with the vast majority opting for either a 4Runner or Land Cruiser. However, while these alternatives do have their advantages, they’re significantly more expensive. Hence, the Sequoia represents excellent value despite featuring many of the same desirable features. If you’d like a better idea of this vehicle’s backcountry credentials, then check out the adventures of The Cherubinis and Burton Family Adventures AZ. In addition, despite its compact dimensions, it’s a popular choice for micro-camper conversions, as demonstrated by innovative builds from Budget Build Bureau and Nathaniel Wise. Today’s 2005 SR5 has covered 271,518 miles and features premium modifications.
From the Seller:
“The Sequoia has never failed to get us where we want to go, and I wouldn’t hesitate to do a repeat of last year’s Virginia to Colorado trip, again, right now. The frame is completely solid. I took pics and tried to wipe it off in places, but she’s dirty under there. I will get its annual lanolin wax application done soon. There’s no body rust, either. It’s currently kept in an insulated and dehumidified garage, and I’ve never driven on salted roads. There are places of surface rust on the rear bumper and sliders from gravel impacts and general usage.”
