Custom hard-side camper manufacturers

#1
Starting this thread to gather a good list of truck camper manufacturers that will build custom hard-side rigs for overlanding. Most of the off the shelf companies (Bigfoot, Lance, Northstar, etc...) are just too oriented to the freeway mass market and don't meet the weight, strength, boondocking requirements most of us need. There seems to be no shortage of popup manufacturers but i'm diving into the hardside market because i'm sick of tent camping :)

Here's who i've discovered so far:
-BunduVry - Reading lots of good stuff on here about them
-Hallmark - Releasing their CEV line soon
-Phoenix Popup - Their website shows a great looking hard-side rig they custom built
-Camper Logic
-Overland Explorer
-Bahn Camperworks -Looks like the most quality but pricey. Custom rigs start at $115,000.

-Idacamper -Have they made any yet? Their site just shows renderings.
-Panther Campers - Are they still around? They used to build completely custom aluminum hard-sides

Chime in with manufacturers you know that have built hard-sides that can withstand some washboard, bathrooms are just an option and don't come loaded with silly appliances that require you be plugged in.

Our BunduVry is under construction. They build with consideration to weight and back country camping. Quality is excellent and customization extensive. Pricing is very reasonable. Rory builds each unit as if it will be for him. Can't say enough positive things about our experience.

Awesome. I'm reading great stuff on them through here and they seem to build for you from the ground up which it doesnt even seem like 4 wheel campers or any of those let you do.


Sweet! Definitely hadn't heard of these guys, adding it to the list. They look great and I like that they're based in Minnesota. They must know how to insulate and seal their units well.

He has a build thread on the forum, in the earthroamer section above this one.

FYI, Idacamper has been pushed nearly entirely to a design and consultation company.
Still working on re-sculpting that image, and updating the site and FB

Repairs, alterations, etc, regardless of MFG we can address, but we are not currently taking orders for custom units.


With that said, if any MFGs out there reading this that might want to team up in some manner,
so I can properly hand off clients to you on a case by case basis, certainly drop me a line. :)
