Toyota 4Runner SR5 2001 - May ‘18 Santiago - Low KM!

We are Joost and Marianne. A Dutch couple and we are travelling with a Chillean Toyota 4Runner for 6,5 months in Latin America. We finish our trip in the beginning of may ‘18 in Santiago, Chile. 

The car is in perfect condition, very clean inside-out, low kilometres, fully serviced (can provide all paperwork) with very good all-terrain tires and full-size spare wheel! Sleeping platform is built inside by the previous owners, but they kept the back seats so it can easily accommodate 5 people if needed. The previous owners build also a solar panel on the roof which is connected to spare battery – you can stay off-grid for many days! There is added kill-switch which cuts off fuel pump so it's impossible to start the car without a special key. Hidden compartment and a safe for your valuables, camping gear and a lot of extras.

About the car:

- folding sleeping platform (upholstered), a lot of space underneath;
- platform doors turn into small tables;
- lights above tables;
- 2 power terminals for tire inflator(on the back of sleeping platform) – connected to spare battery, so you don't need to worry about draining car battery;

Toyota is literally everywhere and it is the most popular brand so it's very easy to find parts or mechanic who knows them. The other thing is, it will take you where ever you want. Indestructible and reliable! Its amazing to sleep at perfect places in the car or tent and it will save you a lot of money. Its also a big advantage if you are not depending on public transport.

Copied AD

Hi guys,
could you please change this ad? It's just a copy-paste of ours. We haven't given you a permission to use our text.

And as far as I know all mods on this car were made by us, not you! So be honest.
