Neglect racks on racks mainly because Toyota’s TRD-Activity trailer is a bed on, in, and with a mattress. Developed for this year’s SEMA360 show (the online replacement for this year’s canceled in-particular person SEMA celebration), the TRD-Activity trailer idea employs the bed of a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck as the canvas for an adventure-prepared tenting rig.
In principle, the concept powering the TRD-Sport trailer is absolutely nothing novel, as qualified crafters regularly attach old pickup beds to trailer frames as a indicates of generating fashionable cargo carriers and campers. Nor is this primary strategy new to automotive makers. In simple fact, the 1997 Plymouth Prowler was obtainable with a travel trailer created to mimic the roadster’s rear end.
Even so, we’re fairly giddy about the TRD-Sport trailer. It’s possible it truly is the probability of the Japanese automaker mass-creating this piece of devices as an accessory item. Or maybe it is really the specific kit Toyota includes on this concept trailer.
Arguably, the spotlight of the TRD-Activity is the remote-operated platform that rises from the bed alone. Stationed on this platform is a four-man or woman Yakima tent (indeed, you can mattress down in this pickup-bed-dependent trailer) that features a sizable awning and fly-fishing pole holders. There’s also a slide-out kitchen with a sink and stove, water holding tanks, a drinking water heater, a fridge, and a bathroom.
The TRD-Activity is merely a thought, but we believe a first rate range of Toyota truck and SUV buyers would fork above the income for this Tacoma-dependent trailer. We picture prospects may possibly also see the TRD-Sport as a great instrument for carrying more baggage on highway excursions or as a suggests of hauling further junk to and from work web pages. As for us? We will just take a TRD-Activity journey camper trailer with a shell in excess of its bed and a thick and comfortable mattress stuffed within just.
