Alright, guys, this is what you’ve been asking for. I’m finally going to give you a tour of our brand-new Bundutec Roadrunner. The Roadrunner is the brain child of BundutecUSA owner Rory Willett and has everything we wanted in a custom truck camper without being too big to take off-road. The Roadrunner’s floorplan mirrors other popular camper models like the Lance 825 and Northstar Laredo SC with a refrigerator, kitchen and wardrobe on the driver side and a bathroom and dinette on the passenger side. However, the Roadrunner offers significant improvements, including a wider bathroom, tons more storage, a taller cabover, the Truma Combi water heater-furnace, a Tern Overland roof hatch, and a True Induction dual cooktop with a 1,600 watt induction cooktop on one side and a propane cooktop on the other.
The Roadrunner’s off-grid, power is provided by two Expion360 120 amp hour lithium ion batteries. A Zamp roof-mounted 340 watt solar power system and a Progressive Dynamics 45 amp Converter-Charger keep the batteries charged. A portable solar plug is also tied into the main solar controller to provide additional wattage during winter months. For this we have a Renogy 100 watt portable panel. Supplemental 110 volt AC power for the camper is provided by a 3,000 watt remote controlled inverter with a built-in transfer relay. The battery compartment, which is located underneath the rear dinette seat, is large enough for two large group-31 batteries, an upgrade we’ll be doing in the not too distant future.
The specifications of the Bundutec Roadrunner are excellent for a truck camper of this size. The dry weight of the custom camper is 2,450 pounds with a fully loaded wet weight of 3,300 pounds. This means the Roadrunner is a good 300-400 pounds heavier than the Laredo, yet is still an excellent match for today’s one-ton SRW trucks. The Roadrunner’s floor length is 8 feet 7 inches, it has an interior height 6 feet 4 inches, and a width of 7 feet 1 inch. The camper features a 35-gallon fresh water holding tank, a 20-gallon grey water holding tank, a 5-gallon propane tank, and a 5-gallon cassette for solid waste. The length of the dinette is 66 inches, the kitchen countertop 54.5 inches, while the wetbath measures 36 inches wide by 30 inches deep.
