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

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.

Tundra's are known for being underpowered and having Horrible fuel millage

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.

2021 tundra max payload is 1730 lbs. lance 650 listed wet is 1903 ( always under estimated) + passengers = too heavy.

laj 07-10-2021 09:31 AM

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

I have been looking a lot closer at the Northstar Liberty as well

mickeybitsko 07-14-2021 08:20 AM

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.
