I interviewed Aidan Klimenko last week, and we discussed the fabled reliability of Toyota 4WDs. In short, we agreed that if you want to travel around the world, then you really can’t go wrong with a Toyota, and the Tacoma is no exception. This midsize truck is considered class-leading, thanks to legendary reliability, build quality, and capability (especially when outfitted with the TRD Pro Off-Road Package). It’s subsequently the most popular truck on our forum with recent examples including this 2019 TRD Off-Road, a 2011 DCLB TRD Sport with Four Wheel Campers Fleet, and a 2017 TRD Off-Road with Vagabond Drifter. If you’d like a better idea of how this platform can be outfitted for off-grid exploration, then check out the overland-ready Tacomas built by Badass Brunette and Jon Burtt. Additionally, see how this platform handles when the tarmac ends on the Expedition Portal YouTube channel as Scott Brady tests the ATerra Tacoma Overland Camper. Today’s 2016 offering showcases the desirable TRD Off-Road Package, premium modifications, and is topped with a FlipPac Camper.
From the Seller:
“This is the perfect overlanding camping rig for weekend adventures and has treated me extremely well. I’m the second owner and bought it stock with 14,000 miles. My goal with this setup was to build a highly capable camping rig that is as understated as a daily driver. This truck was rarely driven off road with mostly highway miles for work. I envisioned keeping this truck forever but I’m looking to upgrade to a Mercedes Sprinter.”
