Overland Classifieds :: 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road w/ Vagabond Drifter Camper

The Tacoma continues to dominate our forum. Recent examples include this 2017 with a Four Wheel Campers Project M, a 2021 with an RSI Smart Cap, and a 2018 with a Go Fast Campers V1. It’s interesting that despite fierce competition from the likes of the GMC Canyon AT4x, Chevrolet Colorado Bison, Ford Ranger FX4, Jeep Gladiator, and Nissan Frontier Pro-4X, the Tacoma continues to dominate the mid-size sector. Sure, the Toyota may not be the most powerful, economical, or well-equipped when pitched against the alternatives, but it makes up for this with class-leading build quality, reliability, and capability. In short, the Tacoma is considered by many as a sensible hassle-free choice. That’s not to discredit any of the options listed above but rather a testament to the Tacoma’s reputation for excellence. In addition, due to its immense popularity, there is extensive aftermarket support, which ensures owners can uprate their vehicles for their specific goals. As a result, no two are the same, as demonstrated by the unique builds from Arkansas Offroad, Freedom Roamers, and Aterra. If you’d like to see how this platform performs as an around-the-world travel companion, check out the adventures of Rogue Wanderers and their expedition-ready 2019 Tacoma TRD Sport. Today’s 2017 offering has covered 63,000 miles and features a long list of premium modifications and a well-equipped Vagabond Drifter camper.
