Thumbs up Overlander/4x4 Toyota Tacoma Pickup with Camper for sale from now!

Overlander /4x4 Expedition–vehicle
Toyota Tacoma with Camper
For sale in Juli 2014 in Ecuador or Peru

In the end of July we would like to sell our Toyota Tacoma (like the Hilux). We travelled with the truck for the last 10 month from Canada to Tierra del Fuego. At the moment we are in Bolivia headed north to Peru and Ecuador.
We bought the car and the camper in Canada separately and built and modified it. In this vehicle you can easily spend a couple of days or even weeks in the wilderness and one can drive rough and difficult terrain. It’s not a luxury RV, everything is basic but very reliable and still very comfortable. Whoever takes over this vehicle, will have a well equipped and ready to go Fourwheeldrive-Travel-Vehicle, with everything you need. The only thing you would need to bring is own clothes, courage and sense of adventure!

The car:
- Toyota Tacoma TRD Pickup X-tra Cab
- Model 2005
- 4 liter V6
- 6 gear manual
- Will have about 270 000 km (New engine by Toyota at around 140 000
- 4x4 with low gears, and rear diff locker
- 5 Wrangler Goodyear Duratrac 265/75 R16 M+S on Daytona steel rim
plus additional original spare tire
- heavy duty clutch (renewed in December)
- lifted
- Repair Manual

Modifications we did:
- ARB Bullbar with Smittybuilt 8000 Pound winch with necessary
- Rockslider and steel rear bumper, welded to frame, as protection of the
car and for tying the camper on it
- Airbags in the rear to support the suspension, with adjustable air
- Compressor mounted under the hood, to adjust tire pressure and airbag
- 200kg steel hitch rack, folds up and down (folded down it serves as
stairs into the camper, folded up it locks and secures the Camper door)
- Tied to the hitch rack: second spare tire, Highlift-Jack, shovel, tarps

The Camper:
- Unknown year and make, probably around 1980
- Made of wood
- One-piece aluminum roof was renewed by former owner,
- Has never leaked
- Pull-out bed, app. 1,90m x 1,20m
- We bought new Ikea matrasses in September
- Two seats with table, that can be used as second bed
- We bought a new 12 gallon water tank and also replaced all hoses
- Sink with pump tap, second tap on the outside
- Two flame gas cooker, with standard US gas bottle (will last forever)
- All windows, even door window, slide to open, have mosquito nets
- Additional vent with net in roof
- Mobile ice box, 12V und 110V
- Lots of storage room for clothes, food, books and stuff you need
- Power outlet on the outside can be used on campsites with electricity
- Double power outlet inside for house power, plus two 12V outlets
Electrical power supply: The camper is equipped with a 12V Deep-Cycle-Marine-Battery. The battery gets charged by a special battery charger. While driving the battery is charged by the truck. At the same time the cooler/ice box can run and it is possible to charge other appliances in the camper while driving. If the camper is not plugged into external power (as e.g. on a campsite), the whole electrical power supply comes from the 12 V Battery (Light, ice box and 12V power outlets)

Additional Equipment:
- Cook- and tableware
- 1 big down twin blanket, 2 pillows and a fleece blanket
- Seat polstery, with covers
- Big tool bag with many spare parts and screws for the camper
- Big tool box (new 250 $)
- two 20 liter spare cans, mounted outside camper, between camper walls
and truck bed walls, filled from outside, decanting from spare can to
truck tank via hand pump
- additional storage from camper to truck bed:
o 4 jacks for lifting the camper on and off
o Battery and battery charger
o A lot of room for further equipment

In addition to the equipment listed, two mountain bikes, a surfboard and fishing equipment can be bought. We carry the bikes behind the front seats in the truck, the surfboard is mounted between the cabin and the camper.
We are in love with our travel mate, neither the truck nor the camper has ever let us down. We would love to ship it to Germany and will probably do so if we don’t find a buyer. In the last couple of months the camper became our home, where we always feel safe and well. Plenty of people took pictures of our car and people in all the visited countries complimented on the great setup. It is a good balance of height and weight and you still have enough room for a little comfort.

You’re not mentioning the price.

Since you bought it in Canada, I assume it’s a petrol. Right?

And pictures would help a lot.
