Here’s a look at both options and what to expect if you choose each.

Toyota 4Runner Camping Guide: Roof Top Tent vs. Overland Trailer

If you’re the owner of a Toyota 4Runner, you’re most likely a fan of the outdoors. You’ve probably also taken advantage of your vehicle’s off-road capabilities. The combination of the 4Runner’s classic 4×4 system and its modern comforts lets you drive in style to just about any off-road camping location. With the right roof top tent or overland trailer, you can add some of that modern comfort to your get-away after you arrive and set up camp.

Roof Top Tent or Overland Trailer — Which Is Best?


Although some hardy souls are fine with sleeping bags, a roof top tent for 4Runner owners or a Toyota 4Runner off road tent trailer can offer a considerable amount of comfort and privacy compared to sleeping on the ground. Either option enables you to unfold a comfortable camping tent that sits on the vehicle roof or on the trailer. In addition to the enhanced comfort, the off-the-ground aspect of either set-up means there’s a much lesser chance of nocturnal creatures disturbing your sleep. What will work better for you will depend on what you consider your greater priorities.

Overland Trailer — Could This Be the Best Option for You?




One of the ways that an overland trailer may be a more attractive option than a roof top tent is that your base camp won’t be part of your vehicle. This means you can set up everything, bed down for the night, and then wheel out the next morning for some exploring without a need to break-down and fold-up your base camp. You may not, however, like the idea of leaving behind an unwatched trailer while you go exploring. In this case, you may want to pack-up your campsite and conduct your explorations with your trailer in tow. If you intend to stay put after you arrive, however, this becomes a non-issue.

A Toyota 4Runner overland trailer can provide amenities that may not be part of a roof top tent set-up unless you pack them in your vehicle’s cargo space. Depending on the model and available options, the best 4×4 off road trailers will provide a wealth of modern creature comforts.

Some of the conveniences a quality overland trailer will provide include:

  • Waterproof and lockable storage areas
  • Complete kitchen set-up with ample water storage for full cooking needs
  • Generator and refrigerator storage areas
  • LED lighting
  • High-density foam mattresses
  • Screened windows, awnings and upper air vents

A Roof Top Tent Can Be Your Best Non-Trailer Option


If your goal is to add as much comfort as you can to your camping trip, but without a need to hitch up and tow a trailer, a roof top tent can fit the bill. You’ll find that the best 4Runner roof tents will provide many of the same comforts as a well-equipped overland trailer.

A quality roof top tent will provide conveniences such as:

  • Accommodations for families of four or more people
  • Two entry doors and two windows
  • Added privacy with a removable split wall
  • Separate mattresses
  • Retractable ladders
  • Under-tent storage hammocks
