The Tacoma TRD Off-Road, topped with a lightweight pop-top camper, has to be one of the best set-ups for overland travel. I recently revisited Ashley Giordano’s interview with Bound for Nowhere, in which they discussed how the Tacoma helped them fall back in love with travel after a series of unreliable rigs. Their personal story is unique and beautiful, but their experience with the Tacoma is not. In other words, very few trucks have such a fabled reputation for build quality, capability, reliability, and versatility. It is, without doubt, the most popular rig on our forum, with recent offerings including this 2019 TRD Pro Supercharged, 2017 with a Go Fast Camper, and a 2022 TRD Off-Road with a flatbed tray and canopy. The immense popularity of this truck means that aftermarket support is excellent and allows owners to customize their Tacoma for their specific needs. If you’d like a better idea of how this platform can be outfitted for adventure, check out these inspiring builds from Badass Brunette and Arkansas Offroad. This vehicle is also a favorite with the Expedition Portal team and received gleaming reviews from Matt Swartz, Scott Brady, and Christophe Noel. Today’s low-mileage (56,000 miles), one-owner, 2018 TRD Off-Road showcases premium modifications and is topped with a Go Fast Camper V1.
From the Seller:
“This is the ultimate overlanding rig, especially if you have dogs… The back seat is fully set up for dog(s) living on the road. This truck has been meticulously built and cared for by myself and will go anywhere, anytime, and get you there in comfort and style.”
