    single cab/2 door utes for outdoors recreation?

    Anyone use one of these for camping, road trips, hunting etc? I need to get a 4wd version for work of some brand or another, and wondered how well they can combine recreational tasks? Obviously a two person trip only. I'm pretty old school, dont need a lot of creature comforts. But what about bouncing about with only a camping load in the tray? Cramped leg room? Minimal cab space? Does it make it unworkable?

    Go extra cab
    Gives you dry storage space and still get a decent size tray
    Have had 2 single cab ln106 over the years and both were cramped to hell on 4wd trips etc

    xtracab is a good idea, keep gear dry, or chuck a canopy on a single cab, Hilux isn't renowned for legroom. If you don't need a tray/deck, consider a Prado Terrano, Patrol or similar?

    I like my single cab LN106, would have gone for an extra cab LN106 or LN65 if they weren't total unicorns

    Been there done that with a single cab never again, two guns behind the seat and spare cloths as well. One time we needed those cloths and the wet ones just got chucked on the back. I had a dog box on the back with a quad so couldn't fit a dry box on at times.
