AN ALL-IN-ONE beach adventure machine is making waves across the Pacific in the USA.
The sun and surf-inspired Surfcamp, based on the 2018 Titan XD Midnight Edition, is the latest vehicle to be released as part of the Titan Adventure series of lifestyle-themed builds. Think: Armada Snow Patrol and Armada Mountain Patrol.
The Surfcamp retains the Titan XD’s Cummins V8 turbo-diesel engine and commercial-grand ladder-frame chassis, but it receives a three-inch suspension lift kit (Stage 5) courtesy of ICON, as well as Nitto Ridge Grappler rubber wrapped around ICON Alpha wheels. A Fab Four Vengeance Series front bumper offers protection from the elements, as well as integrated fishing rod holders.
Wetsuit-inspired seat covers and heavy duty rubber floor mats are a great addition to combat sand and saltwater.
“In the summer, beach parking lots are full of trucks hauling surfboards, fishing rods, boats and campers as people crave the sun and sand,” Fred DePerez, vice president, Nissan North America LCV Business Unit, said.
“Inspired by the vintage beach trucks of the 1960s, Titan Surfcamp is a celebration of the beach truck tradition with all the modern technologies Titan customers want when they head out to surf, shore-fish and camp-out by the water.”
The inspiration from vintage beach trucks is evident in the retro colour scheme and artwork, inspired by Hot Wheels’ 1971 Datsun Bluebird Wagon nicknamed “JNC Surf Patrol”.
To store lures, wetsuits and blow-up crocodiles, the build utilises various storage solutions, including a Decked bed drawer storage system, a Leitner Design cargo rack and a Rhino-Rack USA cab roof rack, as well as specific racks for surfboards and fishing rods.
Other features include a Road Shower rack-mounted solar shower, a Rhino-Rack Batwing awning, a Yeti cooler, lighting from KC, Rigid and Baja Designs, and a roof-mounted Freespirit Recreation Elite Series Automatic tent.
“With Titan Surfcamp, it's never been easier to hit the beach," DePerez said. “I hope this amazing show truck inspires surfers, fisherman and beach lovers to add Titan to their weekend adventures.”
