Compact Camping: ‘2021 Toyota TRD-Sport Trailer’ “All-In-One Convenience”

The TRD-Sport Trailer features a scissor-lift that raises an innovative rigid platform several feet out of the bed. There’s a Yakima four-person tent with an awning and fly fishing-pole holders, a custom-built toilet and trash can, a refrigerator, a hot water heater, a shower with curtain, a generator, an Optima Yellow Top battery, a 16-gallon fresh water reservoir tank, a 15-gallon grey water holding tank, and a slide-out sink and stove. And that’s just for starters!

Toyota, a brand known for its deep off-roading roots and rugged reliability, unveiled the TRD-Sport Trailer, a creative ‘basecamp’ solution concept vehicle allowing overlanding explorers to quickly set up camp and then continue on their remote adventure.

Overlanding is an extremely popular and growing trend, providing adventures in a year when many have faced challenges taking traditional vacations. The TRD-Sport Trailer’s inspiration began when Bob Kupina, Senior Program Manager, Toyota Motor North America Research and Development, saw a trailer made from a Toyota Tacoma at the Overland Expo WEST in Flagstaff, Arizona. Kupina and team got the ball rolling with a cool base concept, but then Toyota turned to Marty Schwerter and the team at Motorsports Garage to take the concept to the next level… and beyond.

Adventure: ‘Helicamping In The Lapland Wilderness’ In Sweden (Travel Video)

A Short by Viggo Lundberg & Tobias Hägg

After many visits to Swedish Lapland my love for the area just keeps on growing, there is few places on earth where I feel so at home.

I have done many helicopter flights in these regions of Swedish Lapland, mostly for photography. Everytime i pass certain areas it just takes my breath away and i’ve always wondered what it would be like down there. So i decided to try to reach it . Unfortunately it’s not so easy to reach by foot so we went Helicamping and we spent an unforgettable evening out in Rittak, Swedish Lapland.

Lappland, often anglicised as Lapland, is a province in northernmost Sweden. It borders Jämtland, Ångermanland, Västerbotten, Norrbotten, Norway and Finland. Nearly a quarter of Sweden’s land area is in Lappland. Lappland originally extended eastward.
