It’s interesting that despite fierce competition, the Toyota Tacoma remains top of the mid-size category. We recently showcased the new GMC Canyon AT4x, which is overland-ready from the factory, and the first comment was, “I’ll stick with the Tacoma.” I’d argue that the Tacoma’s unwavering popularity demonstrates that the overlanding community value build quality and reliability above all else. Sure, there are more powerful, well-equipped, and capable vehicles on the market, but crucially, the Tacoma is a truck you can absolutely depend on to get you out there and get you home. Furthermore, thanks to unrivalled aftermarket support, you’re able to easily address this vehicle’s shortcomings. It’s, therefore, the most popular rig on our forum, with recent listings including this 2017 SR5 with an FWC Project M camper, a 2018 TRD Off Road, and a 2020 TRD Pro. The Tacoma mated with a lightweight camping setup is a winning combo for adventure, and there is no shortage of inspiration online. If you’d like a better idea of how this truck can be outfitted, check out the drool-worthy builds from Overland Engineer, Trail Recon, and Badass Brunette.
From the Seller:
“This Tacoma does well overlanding and off-roading. It was built with heavy-duty leaf springs to handle the camper. Front bumper has minor damage; replacement could be done or ignored. License plate attempted theft, was bent in the process.”
