New model as per April 2019
A Hilux Pod is a very well-equipped 4WD camper. This model comes with, among others, the combination roof/side tent, dual cabin, large water tank, fridge, slide-out kitchen and external faucet. Thanks to the large fuel tank, the camper has a range of 1200 kilometers. The tent is attached, the roof tent and the side awning are connected and offer a lot of ventilation. It’s good to know that the tent combination can be put up in 10 minutes. The side section has a sturdy groundsheet and is very suitable for use on the often hard ground of the Outback.
