Agree 100% with this. I showed up first thing on delivery day to find the owner Rory doing some final detail work on the camper. It was fun to hang out with them and get to know them better something I doubt would happen with a larger builder.I think the no distributor model works really well for small family shops. As you point out they can do interesting projects, offer really good value for the $$ regarding quality. Plus distributors add a layer between the people who genuinely enjoy building these and the people who end up using them that dissconnect really hurts the builders who get ideas, energy and enjoyment hearing from owners out having adventures in the campers they built.
Jack, not really anything special on the bolts for tying down the camper there is a total of 4 bolts. It sounds like in the land of Oz they use external tie downs on their tray/flatbed campers not really sure why. The wife has the truck today so will try to get some pics and post later.Great looking camper. We are working with Rory and Jenn right now on our design and build. I too am doing a tray/flatbed version and like you, don't want any external tie-downs. Rory and Jenn both used your camper as an example with the "bolt" through system and I was curious if you could provide some pictures of how the camper is mounted to the flatbed.
We are working on a pop-up version of the BunduVry floorpan, with our own tweaks.
I really appreciate it and hope you are still liking your camper.
I am trying avoid any external securement, but Rory did say that the four bolt system is a challenge to align if you have to remove/reinstall the camper, which I get; but like you, mine will stay on the tray for the most part. I appreciate any pictures you can take. I'm a visual kind of person.Jack, not really anything special on the bolts for tying down the camper there is a total of 4 bolts.

Haven't had a chance to use the campy this winter but starting this March will be getting out a bunch, still lovin it! What changes/tweaks are you planning on your build?
Perfect. That is what I envisioned, but wanted to make sure I wasn't making it too simple.View attachment 437097
Jack, sorry wasn't able to get very good pics of the bolts. This one is from the large storage area, as you can see hopefully is it's a carriage style bolt with a extra large flat washer. The other end which is inside the underbed box, I couldn't get a clear photo of would just be a nut with a washer as well. I'm thinking of replacing the carriage bolt with a regular bolt.
Kevin,My wife and I just visited Bundutec on our way home and Rory and Jenn are indeed, delightful. We originally planned to spend an hour or so and before we knew it, it was noon. I have sent them a drawing for what we want on our flatbed and cant wait to get their cost estimate. It took me awhile to get past the idea of wood construction but after seeing how Rory does it, I think it will work. That, plus the fact they are 3 hours from us makes it very attractive.
Question -- how has the camper performed? Any regrets? Any problems?
