BundutecUSA Leads the Way in Micro Camping

BundutecUSA manufactures hard walled and pop top truck campers in several different floor plans.

Available for all truck sizes the campers are designed to be customized and built to your specifications. Some customers only want an empty shell and others want it fully equipped.

BundutecUSA recently started building small camping/cargo trailers (Trekken) and truck camper box inserts (Bivak). The Trekken (see photo above) is the perfect truck camper accessory to easily haul your extra gear and still have extra sleeping quarters for the occasional guest at your camping site. The Bivak (see photo below) is less than a full cab over truck camper but much more than a fiberglass topper.

Rory Willett founded BundutecUSA, Inc. in 2013 after retiring as president of Northstar Campers. It was a 40-year-long career in the family business that was started in the early ’60s by his grandfather, Tex Willett. Northstar grew to one of the top truck camper manufacturers in the U.S. powered by his designs and engineering experience.

Willett stands apart from the RV industry due to his minimalistic approach to camping. For example, here’s what Bundutec could pack into one of its half-ton truck beds (averaging $15,000 to $20,000): a Norcold pull-out fridge, electronic roof lift system, L-shaped dinette, queen size bed, sink, two burner stove, exterior shower, Shur-Flo water pump, toilet, and several other amenities.

Willett wanted to offer more than the conventional RV style truck camper and camping trailer. He needed something that was unique and not available before in the U.S. That is how the BunduTop (see photo below) and BunduAwn (see photo below) came to be part of the company’s line-up.

Most campers start out by tenting. Getting off the damp, bug ridden ground and the setting of poles, ropes and stakes, a truck camper is the next step for many campers.

But, some still desire the true tent camping experience. Attaching a tent to the roof of your SUV or trailer is a very unique way to sleep in nature while staying off the ground. Most available roof top tents still require 30-45 minutes of set up time with poles, ropes, and stakes. Folding them back up after removing the bedding and securing the cover takes additional time.

Willet wanted a roof top tent that raised and lowered in less than 30 seconds with simply the push of a button.

In 2015, an Australian business associate put him in touch with Martin Rautenback, designer and owner of Bundutec, a family owned and operated business in Johannesburg, South Africa. Willett met Martin Rautenbach’s family and accompanied them on a 10 day trip into the Kalahari Bush of Botswana and Namibia. This sold him on the product. The ease of operation, the sturdy materials used, and the comfort level the BunduTop offered convinced Willett that it would be a perfect fit with what he wanted to market in the U.S.

The BunduAwn is available in two sizes at a cost of $1,260.

Why is BundutecUSA different?

The Bundutec pop top truck campers use a totally different roof design and a fresh new interior look that makes them stand out from the others in the marketplace. The roof of the pop top is raised by a push of a button with a four corner electric jack system.

The available floor plans can be ordered as a hard wall camper or a pop top. Each floor plan can be ordered with your custom requests.

BundutecUSA will work with you to build a unit that can be just a shell, without any LP or 110v system, or a fully equipped camper with A/C, water heater, furnace, and shower with toilet. Campers are either installed at the factory or delivered to your door.

The BunduTop and BunduAwn are made of the highest quality materials and are built to withstand the harshest weather. They come with a two year warranty and are shipped direct to your address via UPS or common carrier.

The BushCamp truck camper is available for a base price of $1,350 and a base weight of 1,360 pounds.

BundutecUSA is located in the heartland of the U.S. in northeastern Iowa at Raymond.

While BundutecUSA operates mainly as a factory-direct manufacturer, the company has expanded into several dealerships outside of Iowa: D & H RV Center (Apex, North Carolina), Polar RV Sales (Salem, New Hampshire), and AutomotorUSA (Issaquah, Washington).

Worth Pondering…

Your talent determines what you can do. Your motivation determines how much you are willing to do. Your attitude determines how well you do it.
