That is an excellent link, for some reason I was put off looking at ALKO I think the local agent told me they did not have a hydraulic option so I moved on , however this is just the help I was looking for top marks  :cup: :cup: :cup: ;D ;D ;D now to cost it and get funds from the minister of war and finance,( where the work really begins  ;D ;D)

Grizzly I would be interested in what you find out. Whether it can be done. With the issues I am having with setting up my cable brakes it might be an option to go hydraulic. Keep us posted.

dear all, gday!

it has 6 leafspring suspension (no dampeners),  would anyone know what is the gvm? /aggregate mass (ie how much can i safely load up the leafsprings?)


thanks in advance

G'day Just Startin,
                            Thanks for those measurements  :cup:. I take it the flaps are just bolted straight through the stone guard frame? Good looking set up you have also  8).

Hi all Cub Clubbers
             Here a few more pics of my Camper at Kiama over the wk/end
 I have fitted matching steel wheels to the camper so they match my Pajero. I have D694 Duellers on steel wheels for outback travel and the highway tyres fitted to the alloys for around town use also copied Snow's solar exhaust/vent on the fridge/spare's box also fitted to the camper roof rack some aluminium screen door mesh to hold and tie down smaller items.
      And for Gee-You 1  before last trip I welded a U bolt to chasie ( temp) so I could remove trailer if stuck. I will improve on this before next trip.

Just got a quote in from Trailer Spares Direct for a kit that includes PBR brake callipers braided hydrolic lines Hydrastar brake actuator and a Prodigy 3 controller for $1700 give or take a few dollars, Hydrastar has a two year warranty which you do not get locally if you buy direct from USA
 The price I got from the net direct from USA was $635 locally supplied is $900
I have placed a requisition with the Minister of War and Finance and it has been given aooroval after some major dental work and possibly a new oven  ( if the Lofra people let us down on warrenty) ??? ???

Not a Cub owner, yet. Have a couple of questions if I may.

I need to be able to fit a bunk bed in the hard floor area is this possible in any of the offroad models?

Can you fit an innerspring mattress or will that be too tall for the fold over?

I cant speak for any one else, but a bunk would be a VERY tight fit in our hardfloor. Other models may have more space. We replaced our foam mattress with an inner spring. No problems with fit ...

The Space Van offroad is supposed to be able to fit a bunk bed on the hard floor area. They have/had them in the Sydney showroom. It is 6' wide.

The Spacevan can handle inspring mattresses (we have the single beds). Heaps of room. Other models may.

We've got a cub escape and a set of camp bunks for the kids which fit in easy on the hard floor area. We generally only use them when we're stopped for a week or so as they take a bit of time to set up.

Cheers

I've seen the bunk beds on display in Melb on a Spacematic from memory.  Yes they would be small, but I would think it would suit small children.  If the kids are getting too big - time for them to stay in a tent or  a swag.

Funny you should mention it mate. I had a clean up of the shed on the weekend and found the recovery points buried under stuff on my bench. Will have to pull my finger out and get it done. Im also contemplating a rear tyre carrier ...it is quite an engineering task!

Will take some phortos when it is done.

Cheers Chippy :D

Hi Hargs, that much rain was a test that showed a few seam leaks but they have since seal up nicely. SWMBO was not impressed with that much rain and wanted to go home but I persisted and we stayed for 4 days if memory serves.
The Brumby doesn't look quite that new anymore, it lives in the back yard uncovered. I am looking forward to getting some time off for a trip North at some stage myself.

Cheers Shane

wow, shiny shiny, poppasmurf. Did you buy it new and these are old photos or did you buy secondhand? Mine is 2.5 yrs old and has a bit of bush pin striping down the sides and red dust and mud in various spots, mostly camouflaged by the baby poo brown panelling  ;D
