haha yeah well I'm an Isuzu kind of guy until I win lotto and can afford a Landcruiser.  5 minute setup sounds good.  The windup looks easier than climbing over our softfloor to wrestle the tonneau back on!
Mate, Ive dragged my Cub Brumby all over Australia through some pretty rough stuff. The previous owner did as well. It's done a fair few Ks. Only problem it has ever had was the welds on the water tank bash guard breaking (on different occasions). Easily remedied. Can't fault it for the price and ease of setup and packdown. Setup is simple and fast which is great after a long days driving. Sit back and enjoy a beer while you watch other people struggle, tired and emotional, with all that soft floor canvas..... ergh.

About time for me to join the CUB Club :)

Bought brand new (December 2017 built) Explorer "X pack".
The "X pack" is something that Melbourne Cub branch do, its basically beefed up Explorer with much friendlier price tag.
"Beefed up" means it has independent suspension, 16 inch wheels, full working kitchen (from 2017 Daintree model) with Smew stove, stainless steel shelf,  sink and pantry, 240V wiring and 100amp battery, charger.
















Looking forward to give her a test run in January :)

Cheers

Noticed a few weeks ago in my 2016 Cub Brumby that in the fridge compartment, there's one of those white qwick connect plugs at the back, in addition to the merit socket towards the front. Just wondering if this would/could be a secondary plug to plug the fridge into rather than the merit socket?

Not all that confident with the merit connection as the plug from the fridge (EvaKool RF) it doesn't feel secure. Was thinking of replacing the plug with a quick connect for a more secure connection.

If you are going to replace the socket, look at an engel socket (like https://www.baintech.com.au/product-range/product/911-baintech-engel-socket-flush-mount). You should be able to replace the merit socket with it in the same place, and they are a screw in socket, so great reliability.

That's what made me find the quick connect at the back. I was going to snip off the merits and replace with an Anderson. Was thinking of keeping the existing merit as another 12v access for lights etc and use the quick connect for the fridge.

Just get this too https://www.tentworld.com.au/buy-sale/narva-thermoplastic-engel-type-plug. You're going to need to replace the plug no matter what socket the replacement is.

Searching the brains trust,
I have a 2007 Spacematic OFF Road however I think it is the first of the deep sided units made for display and the floor/roof is not checker plate Aluminium that is installed on later models, is it possible to get hold of oversize sheets of aluminium ( camper is 3m x2.2 roughly ) to make a new base or is it a special order only available from Cub.
thanks
Grizzly  :cheers:

When I was researching repair/replacement of my old 2001 which had fiberglass skin, I could only find people talking about CUB supplying the single piece of Al checker plate, though a few people thought it might be possible to work out where CUB got it from.
It might be worth having a chat to CUB about it, I understand that the old floor/roof was lighter than the aluminium one, the frame and hinge and other stuff might not be up to the extra weight.
I ended up removing and repairing mine, it was a big job.

Correct about the weight and hinge condition, struts as well.

Dust has been a worry  getting into the Cub Supermatic Escape . So we have stripped off the soft seal & replaced the whole thing . Including the kitchen & storage doors . The water supply hose to the kitchen had gone black over the years . lt has been replaced as well , only to find the protecting tube is open from the water tank to the inside is open to dust . l have stuffed the opening with sponge & taped up , that should slow the duct down . Hpoefully
lf you have a problem check out the fitting  .                       :cheers:

Guys

I'm really interested in a mid 2000's Cub with an external kitchen.
The question I have is the differences between the supamatic and the spacematic.
Whilst it is only my wife and me plus a 40kg GSD I would expect my son to borrow it so would need to sleep someone in the floor area.  Whilst I do have a WAECO the idea of a small fridge internally also appeals.

Has anyone owned both and can offer an opinion on is the extra room of the spacematic really worth it?

Regards

Ken

Ken, I've owned a Supamatic and a Spacevan (same floor area as a Spacematic).  The Spacevan/Spacematic are about 50cms longer in the body and the hard floor than the Supamatic.  This might be useful if you're trying to sleep more than two people on the hard floor, otherwise there's no big advantage.  What I loved about the Spacevan was the extra height.  Even with a queen sized inner spring mattress, we could place the kid's bedding on top of ours and still have room to leave the awning zipped on.  This was not possible with the Supamatic.  Cheers.
