At the core of this custom expedition rig sits a range-topping Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, although tuner TruckHouse will let you choose which Tacoma model you’d like them to use for your camper. The introductory price is $285,000.

Every one of these builds will come standard with a single-piece carbon fiber reinforced composite house. Over 1,000 hours went into making sure that the camper matches the body lines, proportions and the utility of the Tacoma.

While there’s no final weight figure, the empty BCT shell weighs just 500 lbs (227 kg).

“We started by breaking down what the perfect overland camping experience was to us, and from there we built the most capable and livable vehicle we could imagine,” said TruckHouse COO and co-founder Nicolo Monforte, as quoted by New Atlas. “We selected the Toyota Tacoma for its modest size, maneuverability, and proven longevity. We then built a carbon fiber-reinforced composite house to match everything we love about the truck and its utility.”

In terms of features, the house comes with multi-access gear storage, a torsion-free mounting system, automatic awning, low profile rooftop solar array, 10-speaker weatherproof sound bar, 3-point locking entry door and an electric entry step.

Meanwhile, the truck itself features an Expedition long travel suspension, drilled and slotted disc brakes (front and rear), fully fabricated rear axle, high output alternator, high clearance front and rear bumpers, Safari snorkel, rotary forged wheels, oversized all-terrain tires, recovery ladders and off-road accessory lighting.

As for the interior, it’s all about the camper, which comes with a cabover queen bed and rear dinette full bed, integrated hydronic heating, 7 safari-style dual-paned windows, oversized skylight, integrated blinds and screens, multi-speed ventilation fan, stainless galley sink, Bosch speed oven, swivel-mounted 32″ LED TV, 12v air conditioning, a lithium battery bank and more.

While the introductory price is $285k, a full options variant could run you as high as $380,000, which is more than what you’d pay for a Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
