Video: Is This The PERFECT Toyota Tacoma Accessory That Will Make Your Friends Jealous?

2021 toyota tacoma boreas camper teardrop trailer

The “perfect” Toyota Tacoma accessory in question is a Boreas XT Camper Trailer. Looks good behind this pickup truck – no?

Andre considers this featured Boreas XT camper trailer an excellent Toyota Tacoma accessory. Why? Think about the folks who take overlanding and adventure driving seriously: they need the rugged capability. We already know that the Toyota Tacoma is as tough as nails. It has an impressive reputation and off-road capability. How about the trailer?

This is TFL Studio’s first official episode of Camper Corner for 2021, and Andre is starting it off with a bang. He brought a 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road, which came with a factory two-inch lift to Arvada, Colorado where Boreas Trailers is headquartered.

Having a trailer that can hold its own in the rough, while supplying you with the living necessities you desire is important. This trailer looks like it will do that, and then some. It looks pretty macho behind the Tacoma too. Having it weigh so little is a boon for folks who own vehicles like this Tacoma. Total trailer weight you see here is just over 2,000 lbs.

The 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road has a maximum towing capacity of 6,400 lbs. Off-road-oriented suspensions, like the setup on this Tacoma, can be outstanding in the ruff. Unfortunately, they can limit the payload and towing capability of a vehicle. Having a lighter-weight trailer with a serious off-road (Australian-sourced) suspension helps.

Toyota Tacoma accessory – the 2021 Boreas XT

Depending on the model you get, the Boreas XT can handle an additional 1,500 lbs of cargo as well. This 2021 model is different from the previous year. It was redesigned and even has a new frame.

Here are the highlights:

  • Cruisemaster CRS2 axel-less independent suspension
  • 235/80/R17 (31.8×9.3) BF Goodrich All-Terrain Ko2 tires
  • 17″ steel Pro Comp wheels 
  • Full-size spare
  • Electric Brakes
  • Custom tongue box w/ Zamp Solar plug
  • 100-watt Zamp Obsidian solar panel
  • Zamp Charge Controller
  • Composite fiberglass exterior
  • Cruisemaster D035 hitch coupler
  • Rear leveling jacks
  • 7 point plug
  • Front jack with wheel
  • All LED lighting with reverse lights
  • 2 Exterior LED porch lights with dimmer
  • Custom Aluminum Roof Rack
  • 23Zero Side Awning
  • Instant hot water shower
  • Load bearing fenders
  • 19″ of ground clearance

The 2021 Boreas XT camper trailer starts at $34,890. The XT trailer is sold out for the 2021 model year. The 2022 model year starts around October 2021 timeframe. Interestingly, that’s slightly more expensive than the base price as a Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road. Still, it’s an extremely tough trailer, built for serious abuse. You can learn more about the Boreas XT by heading to their website.
