Camping in your Toyota Tacoma is the route to go if you are looking for a simple setup that doesn’t require a ground tent with a bunch of annoying poles and allows you freedom with tons of fresh air. Before you venture off, keep these things in mind for your next Tacoma camping trip checklist

  • A truck bed cap allows you to have a roof over your truck bed, while you camp. It does a great job of keeping out dirt. It also helps to keep all of your belongings locked away safely when you’re off on your overlanding adventures.
  • Solar panels use electric power to charge all sorts of accessories you may bring along with you camping like chargers, radios, coolers, fridges, I mean the list goes on!
  • A camp stove is essential if you are a foodie and coffee lover looking to enjoy the finer things in life, even on a camping trip. Just grab a propane-powered camp stove and get to cooking.
  • Portable refrigerators exist and are one of the best things you can buy for a camping trip. On the camping roads, it’s hard to just get a bag of ice, so this allows you to immerse yourself in the camping experience fully, but also have some ice and other refrigerated items available to you.
  • Power station allows you to plug in appliances and charge them on your camping site. They can either run off of gasoline or solar.
  • Roof box or bag so you can strap your camping gear to the top of your Clermont Toyota Tacoma safely and efficiently.
  • The bedslide is super helpful for sliding out anything stored inside the truck’s bed. It makes reaching for things a lot easier.
  • Drawers can be installed into the bed of your Clermont Toyota Tacoma, along with a mattress on top to truly turn your truck into a camping getaway.
  • Comfortable interior seating is a must on the off-beaten path. Luckily, Toyota’s already are designed to be extremely comfortable, however, when it comes to the off-roading stomping grounds, it gets very rocky. Invest in off-roading seats that are specifically made for adding support on the road.
