The Ultimate Toyota Tacoma Luxury Motorhome
Posted on January 16, 2022
This beauty, which was on display at the inaugural Overland Expo West 2021, is equal parts home-on-wheels and off-roading beast. Created by TruckHouse, there is nothing quite like this completely custom Tacoma build.
The camper itself is a one-piece composite shell that is reinforced with carbon fiber. It has no seams, which means it will not leak. The material used also keeps the entire unit incredibly light, especially given the size. Every detail, no matter how minute, is custom-designed to perfectly mirror the factory body lines of the Tacoma.
The details inside the camper are thoughtfully appointed, including grain-matched teak trim from the cabinet faces and to the doors. All the blinds are full blackout with integrated screens, and the windows open awning style to provide open-air views.
Above the cab, the TruckHouse camper sports a queen bed with four windows and a skylight. There is even a TV that is viewable from the bed or from the dinette (which converts into an additional sleeping surface).
Beneath the bed, there is a passthrough to the cab, which has also been modified. The rear bench seat is customized to be two captain’s chairs, storage, or a combination thereof, allowing access between the camper and cab.
Finally, there is a full wet bath that has a cassette toilet, shower, and vent fan. All of this is connected to 30 gallons of fresh water and a 20-gallon grey water tank. In other words, they have thought of everything.
In the front, this Tacoma is sporting a bumper from Southern Style OffRoad that hugs and complements the body lines. Nestled inside the bumper are a light bar from Baja Designs and a winch from Warn.
A custom rear bumper graces the back of the truck. Constructed of aluminum, this dual-swingout bumper adds additional storage and functionality while keeping weight to a minimum. This bumper retains your blind spot monitoring system, backup sensors, and backup camera.
Suspension, Gears, and More
The TruckHouse Toyota Tacoma also has 5.29 gears to help offset the additional weight of the camper and large brakes from Stoptech to ensure this beast can stop quickly and safely. Also available are a Magnusson Supercharger, bigger alternator, custom tune, and aftermarket radiator to help everything run as it should while powering the Tacoma RV down the road.
It is hard to imagine a more comprehensive and impressive overland camper that utilizes Toyota Tacoma bones. TruckHouse has created a truly masterful build that is equal parts luxury and functionality, setting the standard for midsized off-road RVs in the process. It was mind-blowing to experience this awesome manifestation of thousands of hours of design and hard work.
