TruckHouse has launched the BCT, their first mid-sized composite expedition vehicle built on the newest Toyota Tacoma, filling the void between massive overland vehicles and 4x4 vans. The BCT is designed to withstand the roughest trails and harshest weather, while serving as a mobile base camp for those who want to live comfortably off-the-grid.
"We were inspired by the idea of bringing the beloved 1980's Sunrader 4x4 into the 21st century. Knowing we wanted to avoid traditional RV construction methods, we utilize manufacturing techniques from the marine and aerospace industries to build the BCT from the ground up. At TruckHouse, every detail matters. In order to maintain quality, we design, engineer, and fabricate all key components in house", explains TruckHouse CEO and co-founder, Matt Linder. "The BCT is built for those who desire a similar footprint of a van, the living space of a Class C RV, the capability of a purpose-built 4x4, and the fit, finish, of a high-end yacht".
TruckHouse is on the leading-edge of composites innovation, giving its vehicles a serious leg up in their strength to weight ratios. The BCT's chassis receives upgraded off-road components, including 12" long-travel front suspension, a fully-fabricated rear axle, drilled and slotted disc brakes at all 4 wheels, and available front and rear lockers.
