This is the BR75 SUV Adventure SUV by Direct Cars
Ever fancied going on a glamping trip with the Toyota Hilux GR Sport? Well, it turns out you can take the experience up a notch with this custom aftermarket upgrade. It’s called the BR75 SUV Adventure Camper, and it’s based on the popular lifestyle truck.
Made by Japanese-based company Direct Cars, the BR75 essentially turns the already capable pick-up truck into a go-anywhere camping vehicle. Instead of having a bed at the back, this particular ute gets a custom RV-like cabin at the back.
Despite its small size, the aerodynamically-designed cabin extension is relatively roomy and is adorned with wood panels, a tile-style floor, and interior lighting. When it comes to amenities, it gets a pop-up roof that provides more light and headroom, foldable benches, as well as a large dining area. In case you need to freshen up or clean dishes, there’s a second room at the back that’s equipped with a shower head, a waterproof floor with a drain, a sink, and additional storage compartments.
Once you’re done eating inside the cabin, the dining area can be converted into a double bed that can accommodate adults. There’s also a fold-out bed above the vehicle’s cabin in case you have additional guests or children on your camping trip. In case it gets a bit hot, there’s a built-in air-conditioning system to keep the occupants cool at even the hottest of summers, and can be controlled via a touchscreen panel.
With so many amenities inside, how does the camper vehicle power itself? Aside from the standard 12V battery that powers the vehicle itself, the rear cabin gets a large 200Ah secondary battery that powers the creature comforts in the back. The battery can also be recharged via 200W solar panels in order to sustain itself.
In addition, the pick-up comes equipped with an 85-liter water tank, another 20-liter clean water tank, and a 45-liter drain tank. There are even power outlets both inside and out for various electronic devices.
While Direct Cars had to remove the rear bed of the Hilux, they found a new way to still make use of it. It now serves as a separate trailer that can carry additional luggage and camping gear. It can also be retrofitted with aftermarket parts to make it more stylish and practical.
