BundutecUSA is located in NE Iowa, the heartland of the United States. 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 began in the early 60's by his grandfather Tex Willett. Northstar grew to one of the top truck camper manufacturer's in the USA powered by his designs and engineering experience. With that much experience behind BundutecUSA models you are assured your camper is going to be solid and dependable for worry free camping with a brand new look!
BundutecUSA manufactures hard walled and pop top truck campers in several different floor-plans for all truck sizes and are designed to be customized and built to your requests. Some customers only want an empty shell and others want theirs fully equipped. Recently they have started building small camping/cargo trailers (Trekken) and truck camper box inserts (Bivak) that are new and exciting to have in the line-up. The Trekken is the perfect truck camper accessory to easily haul all the extra gear along and have an extra sleeping quarters for the occasional guest right in your same campsite. The Bivak is less than a full cab over truck camper but much more than a fiberglass topper. Turning any sized pickup into a full expedition ready rig.
Broadening our horizons:
At BundutecUSA, we wanted to offer more than the conventional RV style truck camper and camping trailer. We needed something that we could offer that was unique and not available before in the states. That is where the BunduTop and BunduAwn came to be part of our line-up. Experiencing the outdoors in a tent is very different from
truck camping, most of us started out that way. Getting off the cold, bug ridden ground and the setting of poles, ropes and stakes, a truck camper was the next step for a lot of campers. But, for some of us, we still desire the true tent camping experience. Attaching a tent to the roof of your SUV or trailer is a very unique way sleep in nature while staying off the ground. Most of the RTT offered still requires 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 even more time. Finding a Roof Top Tent that raised and lowered in less than 30 seconds with a push of a button was the perfect product for us!
We contacted Martin Rautenback, designer and owner of Bundutec from Johannesburg, South Africa. They are a family owned and operated business, growing and expanding every day, just like our operation her in Iowa. We were very pleased to become the US distributor of his roof top tents and self-supported wrap around awnings. The Bundutec RTT and awning has been passing the test of harsh conditions in South Africa and Botswana for years. All aluminum construction and Ripstop fabric is used on all the products form South Africa.
After a trip to meet Martin Rautenbach's family and accompanying them on a 10 day trip into the Kalahari Bush of Botswana, Rory was hooked on the product. The ease of operation, the sturdy material used and just the comfort level the BunduTop offered proved to him that it would be a perfect fit with what we wanted to sell and use ourselves. There is something about the sense of security you get when you know the product is actually used by the wonders of the company themselves. It is something that Rory has always believed was important int eh designs over the years. Camping in your product offers you the insight that you cannot get from a boardroom, behind a desk.
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 market. The roof of the pop top is raised by a push of a button with a four corner electric jack system. The floor plans offered can be ordered as a hard wall camper or a pop top. Each floor plan can be ordered with your custom requests. Rory is happy to work with you to build a unit that can be just a shell, with out 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 imported BunduTop and BunduAwn are made of the highest quality materials and are built to withstand the harshest weather. They come with a 2-year warranty and are shipped direct to your address via UPS or common carrier.
