      We made the journey to BundutecUSA in Raymond, Ia. to pick up our new camper. We had ordered the Bunduvry model with some options last February 2020 and by the middle of August 2020 it was ready. The 4500 mile round trip allowed us a good shake down of our new camper. Here’s a few photos of our new camper.

      The new camper Looks amazing, Alex. Those BunduVry’s are pretty sweet and very spacious on the inside. How are you liking the Truma Combi and the wetbath?

      The Truma is a great piece of equipment, being able to heat water and provide space heating as well. We did get to use this unit while in Raymond, Ia. at BundutecUSA, it got rather cool that night. In the heater mode it was so quiet I had to place my hand by the vent to feel if it was running. We did use the hot water function at a RV park near the New Mexico state line, it work very well! The wet bat bath is a tight fit and needs to be made roomier, with the cassette toilet being so high you have to stand in a pocket area to shower, I’ll be working on a way to change this situation.

      That’s a nice looking rig! (Rather than bug you with questions we’ll go look at their web site for specs.) I think we saw one of these at the Overland West up at Flagstaff a few years ago. It was pretty nice.

        We did learn a few thing when dealing with a outfit such as Bundutec that does a lot of custom work and that is check what their standard dimension of their cabinets against what you really need, battery placement and other items. Have what you want already laid out before a single piece of wood is cut, this will save you on some problems during construction of a new camper.

      Yoe, Alex, you moved up from Lancedum to Bundatekarie. I like the set up. The lines are simple and straight forward. I didn’t see any AC on the roof until the interior shot showing, what I’m assuming is an air conditioner. I see you are still with the breakover, rock, and obstacle defying HappyJac tie downs. You should enjoy this one to the max, considering you camp a lot, and the B.Tec is a quantum leap above your old long bed Lance 815. We saw that one disintegrate during the AZ Camper Rally. Do you have any weight numbers for the new camper?

      Jeanie and I are leaving a week from today with my Bro John and Krys for the Grand Tetons; Yellowstone N.P.; Big Horn mts.; Devil’s Tower; Black Hills; and Badlands, moving every day. I looked at the weather report and it mentions a little snow this Monday (the last day of August) at the 6K foot level in the northern end of Y.N.P. I hope so.

        Hi Jeff, I haven’t been checking the forum like I should, as far as the weight goes on the Bunduvry it’s about 200 lbs heavier than my old Lance 815,Bundutec weight it out as a bit over 2100 Lbs with water and one 20# tank of propane. My F250 handled the camper very well on our trip back to California, we had winds, hills and heat to deal with. Julie insisted on AC and not to relocated as in the Lance, the things we do for our wife’s.

        The damage on out old Lance wasn’t wood rot after all, the horizontal wood run to the POC for the tie downs had simply split it was a easy fix to repair this problem but non the less weird that it did this.

        You guys have a great journey seeing all those wonderful places.

      Alex, Jeanie and i are 11 days out on our wild and wacky journey to the Yellowstone area with my Bro John and Krys. No problems in temperatures ranging from 104f degrees coming across the Nevada desert at the beginning, to 21f degrees (and a blizzard) on Shadow Mountain near the Grand Tetons 2 days later. I,m typing this as we boondock near the West Yellowstone entrance via my phone’s hot spot.
      Lots of 4WD/low range crawling around on jeep trails at high elevation.
      This whole area IS TC country, to say the least.
      We’re trying like mad to stall going back to that hellhole of CA with smoke chasing us even in the Northlands. It is refreshing not to have any TV and almost no cell service.
      enjoy your new rig.

      Hi Alex
      Congrats on the new camper. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we enjoy our Odyssey.

      Cheers

      Hey Alex,
      Just curious…
      You’re at approximately 2100 lbs with water and 20# of propane. Is that with the standard Bunduvry 20 gallon fresh water tank or did you have em go bigger on that tank?

      In reply to your question we stayed with the 20 gallon tank, our F-250 handle the camper very well all the way back to California.
