Toyota Landcruiser troop-carrier: They all left in the troopie.

Contributor's comments: Used extensively NT wide - and I suspect anywhere in regional Australia where the vehicle is in use. Ring up your Toyota dealer and ask for a Troopie. Toyota even use it in their Glossies.

Contributor's comments: Colloquial term for a Toyota Landcruiser Personnel Carrier. This type of vehicle has normal transverse seats for the driver and two passengers in the front and longitudinal bench type seating for eight more passengers in the back. the rear seats are accessed through doors at the rear of the vehicle."The bus has broken down so the troopies will have to make a couple of trips to get everyone back to camp tonight."
