It's like a 21st century 4x4 Toyota Sunrader.
Toyota's Tacoma TRD trucks are some of the toughest and most off-road capable on the market. Thanks to Nevada-based company TruckHouse, the TRD Sport and TRD Pro can now cater to camping enthusiasts who want to take the truck on extended off-road adventures and live off-the-grid in comfort.
Dubbed the BCT, TruckHouse's Tacoma camper truck is the company's first mid-sized expedition vehicle designed to fill the void between large overland vehicles and 4x4 vans and is envisioned as a 21st-century version of the 1980's 4x4 Toyota Sunrader. Thanks to its single-piece carbon fiber reinforced composite house, the BCT can withstand the most extreme conditions imaginable.
TruckHouse manufactures the composite construction using state-of-the-art vacuum infusion processes that are much stronger and lighter than traditional truck campers. This process takes over 1,000 hours to ensure the exterior design complements the truck's body lines, proportions, and utility.
To improve the truck's capability, the BCT is fitted with upgraded off-road components including 12-long-travel front suspension, a fully-fabricated rear axle, drilled and slotted disc brakes on all four wheels, and available front and rear lockers. Inside, the interior is equipped with high quality, lightweight marine components, and appliances. Seven safari-style dual-paned windows and a large U-shaped rear dinette enhance the outdoor experience
As standard, there's sleeping accommodation for up to four adults, a complete galley, and a wet bath. Additional luxuries such as a swivel-mounted 32-inch LED TV, heated floor, and 12v air conditioning can also be added. Other standard equipment includes a roof-top solar array with up to 600 watts and a Born lithium-ion battery bank with up to 500 hours of battery life, turning the Tacoma TRD into the ultimate adventure truck.
These luxuries don't come cheap, however. Pricing for the TruckHouse BCT starts at $285,000, but a fully loaded model with improved off-road capability, dual rear captains chairs, upgraded solar panels, and extra luxuries will set you back over $380,000.
