Overland Classifieds :: 2018 Toyota Tundra SR5 Dual Cab

If you’re looking for a truck that offers an impressive payload and towing capacity, bulletproof reliability, excellent build quality, and is capable when the tarmac ends, the Toyota Tundra is a fantastic option. I’ve always been a fan of Toyota’s smaller trucks, such as the Hilux and Tacoma; however, I’ve been reminded that an overland build can be heavy and that trucks like the Tundra are far better suited to weightier builds. Many full-time vanlifers and overlanders (myself included) are guilty of progressively modifying our rigs to suit our needs without realizing we’re encroaching on or exceeding what’s safe. Ultimately, you have to recognize when your requirements surpass a vehicle’s limitations and either reevaluate your needs or upgrade to something better suited to the weight.

The Tundra can be a fantastic option due to its considerable max payload (2,080 pounds in this case), which can comfortably handle a fully-outfitted camper with capacity for additional passengers and supplies. Today’s well-maintained 2018 SR5 has covered just 74,000 miles and already enjoys premium modifications that further enhance the Tundra’s go-anywhere capabilities.

From the Seller:

It was built by a friend of mine, link to his project here. [This is] a fantastic truck that’s overland ready! It’s been great, capable on the unbeaten path, and also comfortable for on-[pavement] trips.”
