Overland Classifieds :: 1994 Toyota Hilux Galaxy Camper 5-Speed 4×4

Do you believe in y unicorns? I wasn’t convinced either until I came across today’s listing. This 1994 Toyota Hilux Galaxy 4×4 is said to be one of just 80 examples produced for the Japanese market, and wow, what a beauty. The Toyota Hilux doesn’t need an introduction; it was famously unkillable on Top Gear, is adored by the overlanding community, and parts can be found globally. In short, this is a vehicle that’s field-serviceable, fabled for its bombproof reliability, and proficient when the tarmac ends. However, the Hilux is getting on, and sourcing a thoroughly maintained, rust-free truck is no small endeavour. Finding one that’s as clean as today’s example, with just 90,000 miles on the clock, complete documentation, a spotless interior, and a beautifully integrated camper is the stuff of fairy tales.

From Bring A Trailer

“Based on the LN106 truck chassis, the camper was constructed using an over-cab fiberglass shell and features sleeping accommodation for up to four people, plus a kitchen, dinette, bathroom, overhead cabinets, awning, solar panels, touchscreen head unit, air springs, and dual rear wheels. [It is] powered by a diesel 2.8-liter inline-4, paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and a dual-range transfer case. The truck is finished in white with black fender flares, chrome front bumper, and custom rear bumper. It was imported into the United States in late 2019 and renovated by Roamer Northwest of Seattle, Washington. Work reportedly included a solar panel setup, rewiring the electrical system, and servicing the brakes. [They also replaced] the transmission, clutch, belts, hoses, tires, toilet, and water tank. The seller acquired the truck in late 2020 and added approximately 3,500 miles. This right-hand-drive Hilux camper is offered with manufacturer’s literature, importation documents, a portable heater, and a clean North Carolina title in the seller’s name.

Additional features include extended mirrors, a passenger-side entry door, a retractable awning, and replacement window seals. The custom rear bumper is equipped with LED taillights. The fiberglass shell reportedly was repaired by Roamer Northwest, and the seller notes that the repaired sections are a brighter shade of white than the unrepaired areas.”
