Earlier this week, I interviewed Venja Travel about their Pan-American adventure in a Volkswagen DOKA (double-cab) Syncro camper. During our conversation, we agreed that a double-cab pickup and camper combo has to be one of the best and most versatile setups for travel. After all, the double-cab can be used as a commercial workhorse, daily driver, family wagon, recreational vehicle, or overland rig. I’m considering a Toyota Hilux double-cab as a secondary vehicle due to its versatility, reliability, and capability. However, here in the U.K., lightweight campers are almost non-existent, whereas the U.S. is spoilt for choice with offerings from Four Wheel Campers, Super Pacific, Go Fast Campers, and many more. Today’s Tacoma TRD Off-Road and Four Wheel Campers’ Swift is a fantastic combo that provides a comfortable four-season rolling home while being compact and easy to drive around town and on backcountry trails. If you’d like a better idea of how a comparable configuration handles remote exploration, check out the ATerra Tacoma Overland camper on the Expedition Portal YouTube channel. Today’s rig has covered just 97,000 miles yet is priced competitively at just $45,000.
From the Seller:
“The truck is set up to have this camper on full time and handles surprisingly well. Without the camper, the rear suspension is super stiff. If you ordered this camper today, the cost would be $33,000.”
