Additional Comments:

We couldn't have been happier with the CUB. We left on a two month trip from Sydney to WA when the camper was just a week old. It  performed great and was easy and economical to tow. Our only complaint is in relation to the electric brakes wiring, which requires more protection to stop flying stone damage.

We can highly recommend the CUB as a true off-road camper trailer.
