The BunduWarrior aims to become a top contender in the B-licence off-road caravan market segment, catering to young couples who do not seek to obtain an EB towing licence, elderly
travellers who prefer something light and easy to tow, or young overlanders who are considering upgrading from their rooftop tent or canopy accommodations.

When comparing the costs of canopies, rooftop tents, and your base 4×4 vehicle with recovery gear, the BunduWarrior appears to be a more attractive and affordable option. This is especially evident when considering its compatibility with a broader range of towing vehicles. Additionally, one should compare the utility offered by a rooftop tent to that of this overlanding teardrop caravan. This off-road caravan is easy to store, and you can unhitch it when necessary, saving on urban fuel consumption. Moreover, you won’t need to dismantle your entire campsite for a day of game viewing. It is also quicker and easier to deploy than conventional canopies and rooftop tents. Furthermore, with six insulated sides, it offers greater security than a rooftop tent, boasting ample storage options and straightforward ease of use.

Rest assured, your wife or partner would prefer one of these towable units over conventional rooftop tent living or larger off-road caravans. Finally, this teardrop is 80% customisable, allowing you to make upgrades yourself or have the BunduTec team handle them based on your needs if you lack the time or technical know-how.

We believe this teardrop will excel in our leisure lifestyle and overlanding market segments due to its competitive price, availability, and customisation options, all backed by a well-known and reputable manufacturer.
