Love the inspiration here! I had an 06 Taco with a Softtopper that was my preferred trailhead camper. Going to have to play with the 4Runner this summer.

Remove the back seat bottoms (2x14mm bolts each), and I comfortably sleep in back. I am 6'.

I do put stuff in the footwells, and I built a plank to lay on top, to extend the floor.

Anyone have one of these?

Thought about getting this awning because of the price and the quick release brackets along with the extra quick release hooks.. That way you can remove the awning easily for storage in the garage and move it from one side of the 4Runner to the other easily. Thoughts?

6' I fit fine as long as the back seat is removed. I stack stuff in the floor to make it level all the way to the front seat.

But this product is one that has made it much easier for me to camp multiple days away from home. The only negative is that getting out of a warm sleeping bag and then using a cold Shower Pouch is very awakening in the morning!!

One more thing: I'm currently building a storage/leveling/sleeping platform much like what Antman has done, and others. I'll have pictures in the future when it's done, but basically it's the same thing as someone above did with the cardboard boxes but with space to store some stuff and carpeting to match the interior.

I can say that the O2 cool fan in the earlier post is awesome. I used it out in the Badlands last summer and the batteries never died on me over a week.

camping in 5th gen

Thanks to everyone for sharing their ideas.
I have done a couple short trips and I am still adding items.
I attach homemade screens when parked. Have both sides for cross ventilation.
Having driver side rear seat up when camping is nice, I can roll out of cot and sit in rear seat for changing clothing or reading. Cot fits over passenger side folded up seat and give me a flat 74"x 25" bed. I package wrap a foam pad and a thin self-inflated mattress to the cot for insulation in below freezing temps and a decent cushion. Duffel bag under cot for clothing. Extra shoes/boots also fit under cot.

Hungryhawk, May 2020

I have found nets that fit perfectly over the windows for airflow at night with no worries of bugs. Skeeter is what I have for the front and some Amazon brand for the rear (mentioned above). The rear ones are nice since they go over the door, so I use them as sun shades for the baby as well. Held up great at highway speeds.
Someone on here was selling a kit to roll the rear window up and down from a rear switch. It is nice to be able to lock/unlock the doors and move the rear window without crawling up front.
Raingler attic to throw things up and hang a light on. I did upgrade to the rago for storing recovery gear, but place the soft Raingler under the rago when camping for quick access at night.

No input on camping inside the T4R as I've only slept in it for a few nights on a cot before buying an RTT, but for fire rings/accessories one of my favorite purchases to date has been my Fireside Popup pit. Retail is expensive, but they go on sale pretty frequently for ~$65ish.

Originally bought it because some of the places I go require campfires to be in metal containers off the ground, but it's been perfect for cooking as well and I use it every trip now.

Yes, you need to take out the seat or seats. I just stack up enough stuff in the rear seat space so it is level. They do make blow up spacers that I guess fit some SUVs, but since the 4Runner doesn't have a hump I am not sure if it would work.

Seat Spacer on Amazon Shown with the seats still in but probably will work with them out and the backrests folded down flat.

My wife and I sleep inside the 4Runner when in high bear populations in lieu of the ground tent. I started out backpacking so our camp gear is just our former ultra-light setup.

Coming from a tiny arse backpacking tent, the 4Runner feels like a condo.

-Thermarest NeoAir Pads
-Nemo Fillow pillows
-Helinox Camp Chairs
-Kelty Low Loveseat when car camping
-Cheap plastic folding table someone left at my house
-MSR stove
