While the name suggest the company has experience with campers and camper vans, Patriot Campers occasionally throw in an awesome overlander. Their recently advertised Megatourer 6×6 is rough enough to claim the tile for the most hardcore off-roader ever seen. Okay, maybe not the very great, ehem Ford Earthroamer ehem, but definitely it’s one of the best we’ve seen.
The name definitely indicates a beast that can tackle even the most unfriendly terrain. Well, you’re not wrong to believe that. There’s a 4.5-liter V8 turbocharged diesel engine beneath the hood of the Megatourer. With 354 horses going through to all 6 wheels, this roided-up Toyota Land Cruiser 70-series can climb, crawl and overcome pretty much any obstacle.
In order to take on such tasks, the 70-series has been beefed up with portal axles, lifted and strengthened suspension alongside a 10-foot truck bed and extended cab. The Megatourer 6×6 also encapsulates a 70-gallon water tank and a rear-mounted storage box to fill all your fishing, hunting and camping needs in just one place.
While the outside of the Megatourer has been roughed and toughened, Patriot Campers did little on the inside. The standard interior of the Toyota 70-series fulfills all the needs regarding comfort and transport for the driver and 4 other passengers. There was no real need to change something that works.
