Video: The Low Rider 4×4 Truck Camper Rig

It’s the end of an era at Truck Camper Adventure. After four years, it’s time to sell our Northstar Laredo SC truck camper. We’ve enjoyed the camper and have taken it to a lot of cool places, but it’s time to get something better. What camper are we getting next? We are having Bundutec build us what we are calling the “Roadrunner,” consisting of the same general layout as the Laredo, but with several enhancements. These include a 36-inch wide wet-bath with a cassette toilet, the Truma Combi, underbed storage, a Tern Overland 500x700mm roof hatch (same size as a Heki), a slightly taller ceiling, a lithium battery bank, a dual induction-propane cooktop, and better electronics, including a 340 watt solar power system. Most of these enhancements are things we wished we had in our Northstar Laredo, which is why we are having a new camper built.

The Roadrunner will be a completely new design at Bundutec and will exemplify the custom work that Rory Willett at Bundutec is known for. We are really excited about getting the Truma Combi and look forward to having a larger bathroom as well. Like the Laredo, the Roadrunner will have a DC compressor refrigerator, an absolute must, and will feature an improved Tern Overland egress vent in the cabover. We expect to have the camper on display at the Overland Expo West in July. In case you are wondering, we already have a buyer for the Laredo, but if you’d like to be put on the waiting list, you can email us at [email protected]. In the meantime, in commemoration of the our Northstar Laredo SC, we present this video, called Low Rider – 4×4 Truck Camper Adventure Rig, using the 70’s smash-hit, Low Rider by War, as the soundtrack.

  1. Make sure you go through that Bunda before accepting it. My friend has one and it’s been a piece of junk. all the plumbing leaks, electrical shorts, and other things. Last winter in baja, he was fixing things while we were having fun. just sayin

  2. Wow. Already? And all the upgrades. You go through campers like toilet paper lol.

    What type of roof will this new camper have? Aluminum? Another rubber roof??

  3. Hello, and congratulations on moving up to your dream camper! Your experiences with your Laredo SC were a big factor in our choosing a Laredo SC for our own move-up experience from a Palomino pop-up to something which fit our needs more completely. We love our Laredo SC, so thanks for paving the way for us. Your new camper will push the boundaries for owners and manufacturers alike. We’re watching!!
