Overland Classifieds :: 1998 Toyota 100-Series Land Cruiser and Trailer

If you’re an Expedition Portal regular, you might have come across an article I featured on a Toyota Hilux Arctic Truck 38 Polar Edition. The interview with owner David Daigle (ex-special forces, Norwegian climbing champion, and founder of DID Extreme Expeditions) focuses on his heavily modified Toyota Hilux, but also touches on his epic all-terrain trailer (pictured below). Like today’s seller, David recognises the benefits of this combination for overland travel, and they’re not alone. Overland trailers are very popular, and Senior Editor Matt Swartz regularly features the latest offerings, which have most recently included Overkill Campers T.K.4.7, Sniper X Overland Off-road Trailer, and Turtleback Trailers Expedition Series

To understand the benefits of a vehicle/trailer combination, let’s take a look at today’s classified ad. The Toyota Land Cruiser is a fantastic overland rig, arguably the best, but it’s also a great day-to-day  vehicle. However, what’s practical for overlanding isn’t always ideal for daily life, and that’s where a trailer comes in.

This trailer, which uses a Toyota Pickup box and chassis, features a propane tank, tool chest, deep-cycle battery, inverter, water pump, shower, A/C and USB outlets, water tank, full cooking galley, interior/exterior lighting, and much more. In other words, it contains everything you need to live on the road while removing the need to drastically modify your vehicle. Thus, while this 100-Series Land Cruiser showcases an impressive list of upgrades, it manages to retain all five seats (with the option for third-row seats), loses no load space, and remains a great everyday family car. 

Furthermore, you have the option to leave the trailer at home when you require just the camping essentials or want to tackle a more technical unpaved route. Finally, if you experience a serious breakdown or decide to sell the vehicle, you can hitch the trailer to the replacement and continue your journey. While there are drawbacks to this setup, there is no denying the versatility afforded by a vehicle and trailer combo. 

From the Seller

“Toyota lovers, this is your ticket to adventure. Both [vehicle and trailer] have been built personally, with thought and purpose, to provide comfort and performance in the outdoors. They’ve visited some amazing places and provided some unbelievable experiences. Now it’s time to pass them on to someone who will use them. The truck and trailer have matching paint and rims and will ideally be sold as a set.”
