1997 Toyota T100 SR5 3.4L V6 4x4

The Tacoma’s bigger brother, the T100 is the Tundra before the Tundra was a thing. The bulletproof 3.4L V6 engine was only available from 1995-1998 in the T100 and was the last of the US trucks produced by Toyota in Japan. With only 166,600 miles and all the usual Toyota maintenance already done, this truck camper is ready to take you wherever you want to get away for years to come.


I am the second owner of this vehicle, the first owner bought new in 1997 and commuted less than a mile to work every day. He kept a pretty thorough log that I can pass on to you. I purchased it at 151,000 in July 2020. In the last 15,000 miles, mostly done by Japanese Auto:

  • Timing Belt + Water Pump (all drive belts replaced)
  • New OEM Radiator (all new hoses, thermostat)
  • 1-½” Ball joint spacer front lift
  • Custom Leaf springs for rear with 1-½” lift
  • Total Chaos idler arm
  • All new shocks for lift
  • Replaced worn suspension components (ball joints, bushings, Pitman arm)
  • Valve cover gasket replacement
  • Front + rear drain and new fluid
  • CV Joints
  • New Muffler
  • PCV Valve, O2 Sensor, Evap pressure sensor
  • General Grabber AT2 tires (5,000 miles)
  • Passenger + Driver seat belt
  • Antitheft system
  • Regular oil changes, full synthetic 


The camper in the T100 is so much sweeter than Tacoma bed campers because of the added width and length. With the 61.5” width, you can comfortably sleep two friendly people (47” memory foam bed width) and still have a lot of room leftover to fit the fridge, battery, water, sink and trash. With a 76” length vs 74” in Tacoma, you do feel a lot less cramped if you’re 6’ tall like me. Sitting up while in bed + couch mode were essential too, you can comfortably do this if you’re 6ft or under without slouching. 

The camper is made using Baltic Birch plywood finished with a high solid lacquer that is durable and easy to clean. It is made into 5 different parts or “modules” that connect using insert nuts and machine threaded screws, assembled using only a phillips screwdriver for unlimited assembly/disassembly without a loss of integrity in wood. Once assembled as a unit, they are attached using Phillips machine screws to existing attachment points on the bed. All drawers are locking and all sliding components have locking hardware to make sure everything remains in place even on the toughest of trails. Complete assembly/disassembly/installation takes about 30 minutes.


Camper components:

  • 50L chest fridge/freezer (12V,110V - Ausranvik)
  • Bluetti EB150 Battery (1500 WH / ~100AH)
  • 100 watt portable solar panel (quick connect located on outside of vehicle)
  • 11 gallons of water storage
  • Integrated sink, wired faucet connected to water pump
  • Pull out waste bin
  • Custom upholstered cushions
  • Removable storage bins (Hay)
  • Locking pull out drawer/table for cooking outdoors
  • Flip up internal table with support bracket
  • Sliding bed platform extendible from 28” -44” 
  • Canopy seals reinforced with marine grade silicone for a watertight living area
  • New double bulb seal for camper/bed connection

I am moving on to an Alaskan pop-up/F250 camper project and like all of my camper babies, the hardest part is saying goodbye. Please let me know if you have any questions, thanks for looking! - Chris
