There is no denying that wedge-style pop-up campers are currently on trend in the overland space. This makes sense from a consumer standpoint as the pop-top provides indoor living space, ease of setup and can be more weight-efficient and cost-effective than a canopy, roof rack, and rooftop tent combo. This 2017 Tacoma TRD Off-Road build reaps the benefit of an Access Cab and long box, allowing more space and payload for the Alu-Cab camper.
With the addition of the Alu-Cab canopy camper, an ARB Summit front bumper, Warn Zeon Platinum 10-S winch, ARB Summit Step and Slide rail kit, skid plates, the truck clocks in at 6,200 pounds. A set of AEV Crestone DualSport wheels wrapped with BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain tires rounds out the build.
