toyota trucks are choice rigs for many in the overlanding community, and toyota knows it. so, at the 2021 sema show in las vegas, nevada, the japanese automaker is debuting its new custom camper called tacozilla, and it's appropriately retro.
tacozilla is a custom camper based on a tacoma trd sport that was built at toyota's motorsports garage and painted in texas. its vintage yellow, orange and bronze color scheme scheme draws inspiration from toyota campers from the '60s and '70s. a smoothed out and narrower top and bottom means that the tacozilla is still able to navigate off-road trails; plus, toyota says that someone over six feet tall can walk around inside the camper.
it's quite cozy inside, featuring teak flooring, a kitchen with a stove and sink, a full bathroom with a shower, and a pop-up skylight. there's a tv, too. the kitchen table is 3d printed and can convert into a sleeping space. when it's stowed, it's a backlit piece of wall art.
this tacoma still has the same fender flares as the stock truck, and toyota lifted it, providing two additional inches of ground clearance. bronze 17-inch trd wheels are wrapped with 33-inch general grabber all-terrain tires. a fuel-tank filler is separated from the camper, and an auxiliary battery was installed in the engine bay, a common addition for overlanding rigs for extra power.
the tacozilla is only a special prototype truck to showcase at the sema show, but we're sure it'll give a ton of inspiration to overlanders and toyota faithful.
