Bundutec Campers: Rugged Truck Campers for Explorers

If you’re in the truck camper world, you’ve likely heard of Bigfoot Industries, Northwood Manufacturing, Lance, and Northern Lite. These giants of the industry have been around for a long time. But in the last ten years, another company, BundutecUSA, emerged onto the scene. Bundutec campers feature pop-up and hard-walled options customizable to fit your camping needs and designed for all truck sizes. So let’s dive in and look at what Bundutec offers!

Who Is Bundutec?

In 2013, Rory Willett founded BundutecUSA, Inc. He worked in the truck camper business for 40 years and retired as president of Northstar Campers. However, his love for manufacturing dependable units to get outdoor enthusiasts on the road wasn’t gone.

You can customize Bundutec campers to fit your needs. They can be empty shells or fully-equipped truck campers. Pop-top and hard-walled trailers are available in various floorplans for all truck sizes. Just recently, the company started building truck camper box inserts as well.

BundutecUSA is also known for its unique BunduTop design. This tent provides 360-degree access with multiple entries and excellent views. It features an aluminum construction and a Riptech canvas. The winch motor raises and lowers the tent via a pulley system.

Another unique feature of BundutecUSA is the BunduAwn, which provides shade and coverage for two or three sides of your vehicle. The triangular shape and design are more secure and offer better support than typical awnings.

What Types of Campers Does Bundutec Manufacture?

Rory Willett enjoys meeting one-on-one with clients and working on a truck camper design the company can tailor to their specific wants and needs. These custom-built truck campers feature a pop-up or hard-walled design. The roof of the pop-top Bundutec campers rises with the push of a button. There are ten models, each fitting different-sized trucks.

What Size Truck Are Bundutec Campers Made for?

The Bundutec campers lineup includes campers for small trucks, ½ ton trucks, ¾ ton trucks, and 1-ton trucks. The Topi is the only model for small trucks, while the RoadRunner is the only model for 1-ton trucks. They’re all manufactured in Raymond, Iowa.

It’s crucial to know the payload capacity of your particular truck when purchasing a truck camper. You can typically find this number on a sticker inside your driver’s side door or in your owner’s manual. It might also be called the cargo-carrying capacity.

The dry weight of a Bundutec camper is the trailer’s weight without anything inside. Each camper will have its cargo-carrying capacity as well. Once fully-loaded, the truck camper plus all of your passengers, gear, fuel, and cargo should never exceed the payload capacity or cargo-carrying capacity of your truck.

Larger trucks like ¾ ton and 1-ton models have better braking systems, more powerful engines, and other components that help them carry heavier loads safely. If you put too much weight on a truck, you risk dangerous consequences like a tire blowout, mechanical failures, and losing vehicle control. Even these trucks have limits that need to be followed however.

The Bundutec Campers Lineup

Ten Bundutec campers fit small trucks to 1-ton trucks. Pay attention to the box lengths, as some models require removing the tailgate.

Topi

The Bundutec Topi truck camper is the only model for small trucks like Toyota Tacoma. It fits both 5 or 6-foot box lengths, but you must remove the tailgate. The Topi weighs 1,330 pounds empty and has a base price of around $19,963.

The interior layout includes a dinette and kitchen with a sink, a 1.9 cubic-foot 12V refrigerator, and a 2-burner stove. There’s hamper storage on both sides of the full-size bed. When opened, the interior height is a comfortable 75 inches. You can add options like a 12,000 BTU furnace, insulated skylight, or 340-watt solar package to suit your camping needs.

Bushbaby

The Bundutec Bushbaby truck camper is for ½ ton trucks like Ford F150s. It fits a 5.5-foot box with the tailgate removed and a 6.5-foot box with the tailgate down. You can potentially close the tailgate of a 6.75-foot box. The Bushbaby weighs 1,350 pounds empty and has a base price of approximately $19,134.

The interior layout is the same as the Topi truck camper. However, when opened, the internal height is 80 inches instead of 75 inches. The overall length is 140 inches, so there’s room for a queen bed instead of a full-size bed. The refrigerator is also larger at 2.5 cubic feet. Like the Topi, there are numerous add-ons and upgrades to suit your travel style.

Who Are the Bundutec Campers Good for?

Bundutec campers are suitable for people looking to customize their truck campers. Because of all the options for add-ons and upgrades, customers can make their Bundutec camper precisely what they need.

For example, you can add an aluminum storage box with plenty of gear or a tv mount to relax after long days of hiking or biking. You can add an air conditioner or a furnace if camping in extreme temperatures.

The Bunductec campers are also suitable for people who don’t have heavy-duty trucks. You don’t have to spend more money on a RAM 3500 to get a truck camper. Bunductec provides options for every truck owner.

Is Bundutec a Good Company?

While we have not purchased a unit from Bundutech, we have heard great things from owners we have met.

One Google reviewer shared his experience with Bundutec’s “over-the-top customer service” when he needed a repair. Another happy customer shared a positive experience: “They built a custom camper for my 8 ft. truck bed. Everything was exactly as I ordered and it fit like a glove. Great customer support before and after the sale.”

So if you’re looking for a company that will take care of you from start to finish of the build process and after you’ve taken your truck camper home, consider one of Bundutec’s models. Make it suit your needs, and start going on adventures!

Good story but the Bundutec web links don't work and I cannot find a truck camper anywhere on their website. 😒
