2007 Toyota 4Runner V6 SR5 (4th Gen) with Internal Camper Conversion
La Bestia (The Beast) has been our reliable and badass overlanding tour guide but it's now time she gave others the same joy she’s brought to us.
Not only is she a solid car with a powerful V6 engine, perfect for cruising on any terrain, she's been converted with a low-set fitted bed and all of the trimmings so you can live comfortably inside whilst having the power and agility of an SUV. With this car we've also saved loads in campsite fees because we can easily and discreetly park/sleep on the streets and on beaches when we need or want to - it's so good!

THE CAR SPECS
Engine: V6 SR5 (4th Gen)
Transmission: Automatic (with separate gear options - 4, 3, 2 & 1)
Mileage: Will be approx. 230,000km at time of sale (more or less). This is not a high mileage for a Toyota 4Runner, they are serious machines built to travel several hundred miles.
Fuel Consumption: Approx. 700km per 75L tank.
Standard Features: Airbags/Cruise Control/AC/Heating/Bluetooth Stereo/Electric Windows etc (all the standard things for this model, all working) including a Power Rear Window giving you internal cooking options and clear epic views from the comfort of your bed.
Tyres: All Terrain (Plus a full sized spare wheel).
Drive Type: Rear Wheel Drive (High Clearance). In most cases you don’t actually need a 4WD, low-range power and high clearance is far more important. La Bestia has done the Lagunas Route/Southwest Circuit (the more difficult western route), the Ruta del Che, Mapiri Loop, Cotahausi Canyon High Puna Loop, Paracas, Careterra Austral, backroads of Tierra del Fuego plus others. Like we said, she’s a total badass!
Body Condition: No body damages but a few bumps/scuffs/scratches/paintwork peeling on the bumpers.
Mechanically: Totally sound! No mechanical issues now or with previous owners (it’s all about the Toyota).

Plus we've just completed her routine maintence of oil change, new oil filter, fuel filter and air filter.
