Km: 181,000 km (expected)
Where: Anywhere between Arica and Santiago de Chile (chilean plates)

Extras: rooftop tent and full camping set up


We are a mixed French & Spanish couple. We started as backpackers in Colombia and travelled through Ecuador, Perú and North Chile until Santiago.

After a lot of research, we came to the conclusion that having our own vehicle would give us more freedom during the second half of our trip and decided to buy our lovely Toyota 4Runner. The renowned reliability, the rooftop tent and the 4WD made this model the absolute winner over other SUV or campers.

We have since been driving on the Carretera Austral, Ruta 40 and many more crazy & fun roads through Chile and Argentina. My brother joined us for a few incredibly weeks so the car set up is prefect for up to 3 people. Our plan now is to continue across Bolivia, Cusco area in Perú and back to Chile, where our adventure unfortunately ends.

We’re the fourth owner of the car and made it our home for 4 months. Previous overlanders bought it from chilean and converted to the camper themselves. All the camping gear and the rooftop tent were bought brand new then, so at the time of sale the gear will be 10 months old and it's in good condition.

The car is perfect to explore South America including Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru. The car has been very reliable and have never failed us. We were climbing some Andean peaks in remote regions, the car had no issues driving us up to 5,725m (Sairecabur - start of trail) or Refugio Atacama at Nevado Ojos del Salado (5,100m, rocky 4x4 road). It also behaved perfectly on Atacama desert, Bolivian Altiplano and Carretera Austral. The car is 15 years old so there are some scratches and traces of wear on the exterior.
