    My name is Derek, I am a San Diego, CA native. I have always had a love to find out what is over the next hill. When I came upon Expedition Portal I was able to see how my life long desire to own a “Go Anywhere” Toyota Tacoma and my love of camping and exploration could go hand in hand. I would now be able to travel to remote places with friends and family and not be limited to the standard tourist traps. My goal was to be able to transport and sleep four people with all their gear in one vehicle and maintain its ability to leave large motor homes behind. I decided the best vehicle to do this was the Toyota Tacoma Double Cab.

    What a good looking truck! It looks like you've got a pretty good plan as far as where you want your build to go. I like it a lot! Keep it up

    Thanks for all the positive input! Ya I have spent a good ammount of time on several forums, wanted to build more of a go anywhere expedition rig so I spent most of my time on ExPo. Tons of good resources here as well, just never made an account. Still have so may projects on the back burner!

    It was nice meeting you guys as well, did not expect to see any Tacos out in Anza that weeked as everyone seems to have gone to KOH. I'm sure I'll join you on a run in the future. :)

    Nice truck.

    Is your camper reinforced at all for the RTT? I am about to pull the trigger on one. I am a bit worried about mounting it to my ARE shell. Usually the base line campers can support the weight of the tent, but not a tent with two people in it.
