The Tacoma is by far the most popular mid-size truck on our forum and for good reason. Toyota is oftentimes slow to the game when it comes to the latest tech and features, but that’s because they invest their time into being the best rather than first. The Tacoma is not the most luxurious or powerful, but it makes up for these shortcomings with class-leading build quality, capability, and durability. We’ve featured a number of adventure-ready examples including this 2020 TRD Off Road, a 2013 TRD Sport with a Super Pacific camper, and a 2019 TRD Pro with an Alu-Cab canopy camper. The TRD Pro model is engineered from the factory with backcountry adventures in mind as demonstrated by Matt Swartz during his field test on the Expedition Portal YouTube channel. The Tacoma, much like the Land Cruiser, is a vehicle you can trust to get you deep into the wilderness, but more crucially get you home (as discussed by Bound for Nowhere on the Overland Journal podcast). Today’s low-mileage (34,062 miles) 2019 offering features premium modifications and a Fab Fours Overland bed rack with an Overland Vehicle System’s four-person rooftop tent.
From the Seller:
“I drove this Tacoma off the showroom floor in April of 2019 with only six miles on the odometer; I put the seventh mile on it during the test drive and bought it immediately. I kept the truck pretty stock for the first year I owned it and used it as a daily driver. When Covid-19 hit in 2020, I converted the truck for overland camping so that my family and I could get out of the house and enjoy the outdoors. Needless to say, it served us well and was always the talk of the town. As you can see from the itemized list of quality upgrades, my asking price is more than fair.”
