SPARKS, Nev., Jan. 12, 2021 -- TruckHouse has launched the BCT, their first mid-sized composite expedition vehicle built on the newest Toyota Tacoma, filling the void between massive overland vehicles and 4x4 vans. The BCT is designed to withstand the roughest trails and harshest weather, while serving as a mobile base camp for those who want to live comfortably off-the-grid.

TruckHouse is on the leading-edge of composites innovation, giving its vehicles a serious leg up in their strength to weight ratios. The BCT's chassis receives upgraded off-road components, including 12" long-travel front suspension, a fully-fabricated rear axle, drilled and slotted disc brakes at all 4 wheels, and available front and rear lockers.

"We selected the Tacoma for its modest size, maneuverability, and proven longevity.  We then built a carbon fiber reinforced composite house to match everything we love about the truck. Every key structural component of the chassis has been reinforced to make a vehicle rugged enough for true backcountry adventure." says COO and co-founder, Nicolo Monforte. "We started by breaking down the perfect overland camping experience, and from there we built the most capable and livable vehicle we could imagine."

TruckHouse is in the final stage of constructing its prototype and is set to build a limited number of BCTs in 2021 with an introductory base price of $285,000. Fully optioned rigs cost upwards of $380,000. Interested buyers can learn more at
