TOYOTA LAND CRUISER VDJ78

'TROOPY CAMPER'

COMPACT CAMPER

Our claim is that this is the most practical compact touring Land Cruiser yet built by anyone, anywhere.  It's designed and developed by Andrew, through actual real overland expeditions. Nothing on these trucks hasn't been personally tested.

TROOP CARRIER

Based on the Toyota Land Cruiser VDJ78 4,5V8 turbo-diesel Troopcarrier, we build these in Western Australia for customers all over the world, as well as here in Aus.

Prices begin at around AU$130 000 topping out at about $165 000.

To get an idea of what these vehicles can be equipped with, below is a list of accessories that were fitted to Andrew's personal vehicle, and test-bed.

ORDERS.

To chat to Andrew about him building one of these for you, please read here. Vehicles built for customers are based on this vehicle, but are not the same, as we have improved and adapted many designs. YES. We are still taking orders. (October 2019)
