Overland Nomad’s Awesome and Affordable Toyota Pickup Camper – Expedition Portal
I feel that there are two types of truly cool four-wheel drives out there. The first category encompasses all of the dream vehicles: EarthRoamers, Unimogs, restored Defenders, Land Cruisers, and portal axle G-Wagens. The sort of things we all secretly long for, but realistically could never afford. The second category, which happens to be my favorite, is the down-to-earth, well-used, real-world, four-wheel drives that simply get the job done. Each one is packed with character, and whether from international adventures or just countless weekends on the trail, have dents, scratches, and unique modifications that capture our imaginations like no brand-new car ever could. That’s why today we’re taking a fresh look at a rig that never fails to make us smile. It’s a 1994 Pickup owned by a man named David Gonzalez, and its history spans way back to his early days in school. It has been a lifelong passion for David, as much a part of his family as any vehicle could be, which is exactly why we’re switching up our featured vehicle formula to let David tell you all about this build himself. We hope you enjoy his story as much as we did and find a little inspiration in his Toyota pickup camper.
