    If you are in the Jhb area, contact them. They can do the wiring etc and they open on the 10th.

    Hi Victor. Attached is a photo of the underside of part of my tent. There are 20mm square tubes running lengthwise under the floor of the tent approx 16mm apart. When my tent was fitted 8mm holes were drilled through the floor and square tubes (on the outer tubes only) in line with the centre of each load bar. The tent was then secured to the load bars with 8mm bolts and large washers. the mattress is thick enough that you do not feel the bolt heads or nuts as in my case. In the attached photo the aluminium tube attached to the canopy is only to make the fitting neater. Hope this makes sense.

    Correction The 20mm square tubes are 16mm apart not 27 as first stated.

    Thx pete for the fast answer with perfect pic, good sence.
    So you have 4 tubes, the outer bolted, the two inner 27 cm apart not bolted, weight is enough?The 4 8mm bolts upwards with nuts inside the tent. Open the tent for the nuts and washers by hand?
    How can i post pics to you?
    Thx again

    Hi Constanin. I did not fit the tent myself but watched the fitment centre do the job. My tent is bolted directly on Front Runner loadbars. The loadbars were first secured to the canopy. The tent was then opened electrically, the mattress removed and then closed. The tent was put on the loadbars and as the bolts slide into the centre channel of the loadbars this position was marked on the outside moulding of the tent base on each side. The tent was then taken off the canopy and turned upside down. Using the markings on the sides as reference the inner channels on the tent were marked. The bolt holes were then drilled. Bolts were then slotted into the loadbars. As I had 4 loadbars, 8 holes were drilled altogether. With a bit of juggling all the bolts were fed through the holes. The tent was then opened electrically and fastened down using large washers and nyloc nuts. Excess bolt was sawn off and plastic caps were put over the nuts. BunduTec say that a minimum of 4 bolts should be used but preferably 6. As I had 4 loadbars I decided to secure with 8 bolts. At least 2 people are needed to fit the tent in this manner. Hope this makes sense.

    Would any of the Bundutec owners be able to provide a picture or a description of rope routing through the lifting mechanism? I want to mimic the system for a diy project - thanks!

    Just got back from 8 days using our new Bundutec. Quick setup is awesome. Went on game drives and pressing buttons to lift and drop was really good. No leaks in the rain. My vehicle used less fuel than with my previous rooftop. Cool in the hot weather. No dust. Mattress is very comfy.
    Dislikes: Fan switch toggle got me and swambo in the head.
    Central light got me in the head.
    Climbing out whilst raining is a pain.
    Have already come up with future solutions for the 3 dislikes.

    I am looking at ordering one of these. Obviously I would not want to drive around with it on the roof permanently it is quite big, can any owners say how hard is it to mount and unmount from say a front runner roof rack on a defender? Do you leave it on permanently? My defender is my daily drive. Also what is the price on it these days? Cheers!

    6 bolts through the roofrack. Tent weighs 73kgs. I would leave the tent bolted to the roofrack and just remove the roofrack. 4 guys to move it or a Fredlin hoist.
    Price is R29 900

    If I may ask - not to hijack the OP - do you get a bundutec with a extra room? As is common in TTT?

    I purchased a Bundutop earlier this year. Special manufacture - 1600 mm wide. We had a couple of issues when we took delivery, but Bundutec were first class and went more than the extra mile.
    Fantastic product, really comfortable, better fuel consumption with it on my Disco 4 than with a plain Front Runner roof rack! We changed the ladder for personal choice and have 150 w solar panels on the roof.
    Sold the roof rack and fitted load bars. Now we just take the Bundutop off complete with the load bars when we are no using it.
    Wind resistance - yes, it's there, but really not an issue. We have also added a deflector plate on the front which helped soften the wind noise.
    Bottom line - Bundutec are a great Company that supplied a top class product - I thoroughly recommend both them and their product. If you buy one, you won't be sorry.

    I just took delivery of mine this weekend.

    It does what is says on the box! Really good quality. Got mine in black with a grey interior rooflining. The tent sides are sand colour.

    Got mine on special - includes the Added Room with sides! Nearly R5k saved.

    Even with it on my Wrangler Rubicon, I managed 14 litres/100km on my way home to Mafikeng. Really impressed.
