How can we be certain summer has arrived? Sand between your toes? Short shorts? Blue skies? The smell of sunscreen? Sure, but if you want something more conclusive, why not check the prices of used overland vehicles?
It’s that time of the year again, when the cost of pre-owned rigs skyrockets, and prospective buyers are left scrambling over a small selection of sensibly priced options. Fear not; there are still bargains to be had, such as today’s 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road overland build. At $45,000, this is not an inexpensive rig, but it’s fairly priced compared to others, such as this $58,000 2017 TRD w/ Alu-Cab Camper, a $59,000 2016 Tacoma w/ FWC, or this $75,000 2018 TRD w/ AT Overland Atlas.
This 2016 Tacoma features a premium Four Wheel CamperFleet, a long list of desirable modifications, and a generous selection of overlanding accessories. There are some minor areas for improvement, but these are fully disclosed by the seller.
From the Seller:
“As an avid mountain biker I’ve been exploring the vast beauty of North America in this Tacoma / Four Wheel Camper for the last few years, and have really appreciated its small size and immense capabilities. You can easily maneuver through a busy town while resupplying – then the combination of high ground clearance, a low roofline, and an incredible 4×4 platform allows access to places other vehicles just cannot go. Find a quiet spot away from the crowds and enjoy the outdoors with all the comforts of home.”
