Summer is in full swing, which means the price of overland vehicles has inevitably skyrocketed, and reasonably priced rigs are hard to find. The Toyota Tacoma is by far the most popular truck on our forum, with used examples often demanding near-new prices. Over the past few weeks, we’ve featured several overland-ready Tacomas, including this $45,000 TRD Sport Overland Build, a $57,500 2019 TRD Off-Road, and a $34,000 2014 T/X Baja Series. These are all lovely trucks, but they’re not inexpensive, especially when you consider that none of them incorporate any camping setup. Fortunately, today’s double-cab Tacoma TRD Off-Road is just $14,000, includes premium modifications, a custom flatbed, and leaves enough money in the bank to source a lightweight camper or habitation box.
From the Seller:
“Finally selling my Tacoma. It’s a great truck, but with a toddler at home and a variety of other priorities, it’s not getting much use right now. It will make a great overland platform or just a super fun rig.”
