Raymond, Iowa-based Bundutec USA announced the expansion of its truck camper line with the release of a new self-contained pop-up for half-ton trucks called the Wild. The company says that the new, self-contained truck camper will allow longer trips in the back country without having to make special runs to the nearest town for services.
According to a press release, the company took its BunduKort model and updated the floorplan to include a wet-bath with a cassette toilet and shower and additional upgrades for those looking to have more than just a basic base camp setup. In spite of these upgrades, the new pop-up truck camper weighs only 1,630 pounds dry, a figure that puts it well within the payload ratings of most half-ton pickup trucks being built today.
The BundutecUSA team will be unveiling the new prototype at the 2018 Iowa Horse Fair, April 6-8, and at the 2018 Overland Expo West in Booth No. Q30, May 18-20.
“I’m excited to get it shown to see what kind of response we get,” said Rory Willet, owner of BundutecUSA, about the Wild. “The unit is filling an opening in our lineup for the new camper line we have.”
Framed entirely of wood, like all BundutecUSA truck campers, the Wild comes standard with a 4-gallon water heater, a Thetford cassette toilet, a Nova Kool 3.1 cubic foot 12 volt compressor refrigerator, a full-size memory foam mattress, loads of storage, and a 16,000 BTU furnace. It also features a laminated aluminum/fiberglass roof with an electric lift, a smooth aluminum exterior, several USB and 12 volt outlets, LED lighting, a MaxxAir Fan, and a Zamp exterior solar charge port.
