Toyota Tundra Lance 650/825

Anybody running a Lance 825 or 650 on a Tundra

What mods worked/what didn't?

How does it do?


Depending on the specs on the new tundra I'm thinking about one of the with a Tundra. (Tired of horrible resale with other trucks)

Also have looked at the Adventurer 80RB and Northstar Liberty

Pro's cons over any of these functionality wise etc.

I am sure someone is using a Tundra for a TC

Toyota Tundra Lance 650/825

Most people that want to use grocery getters for a tc use pop-ups.
As you already stated you would have to mod. them. Not a good start.
You could look at:
4wheel
alaskan
palomino
as well as several others that would fit your weight class

Depends on the Tundra's payload. Doubt it will have that much unless it's a 2WD, long bed, stripped down model.

I'd add Bundutec and Hallmark to the list of pop-up TCs laj mentioned.

Those Lance's and Adventurers are in 3/4 ton truck territory.

Do you already own a Tundra? If so I would look at popup tc IE Four Wheel, Northstar or Palomino camper. The Tundra is a very good truck just if you are buying a new truck for a TC you want at least a 250,2500 truck

I don't have a tundra, I have a tacoma at the moment, I have had 3/4 ton trucks in the past and If I can I would prefer making a small truck camper work on a truck with a bit more reliablity and resale. I am keeping my eye on the info on the new Tundra, if the specs don't give me what I am looking for I will revisit another solution.

I really enjoy the Toyota truck resale and reliablity, and don't want to abandon that If I don't have to. The caveat is that I would like to keep this truck a little longer and run the mileage up a bit more, with a domestic, HD truck I don't trust them too long out of warranty so I would be trading ever few years etc. I'll go that route if I have to but I would prefer to do it a little different.

Wet weight never includes personal junk, or food ect. Better add for that to get the real gross weight.

Northstar liberty is 1775 lbs, according to their website, gonna need a bigger truck or spend a couple bucks on your suspension.
I suspect any slide in base weight camper would need to be 1200-13000 lbs then add 5-600lbs of stuff including passengers, pets etc of cargo to stay AROUND 1700 lb payload.
Most likely be over gvw.
