Set up the camper trailer last night to air out but in doing so I managed to destroy the rear access door in the process ,forgot to undo springs !
I wonder how others get on when setting up .

I've been lucky with mine - 8 years.

I've often wondered how I would get on if mine was damaged in set up.

Do CUB have spares?

I have had my cub for 4 years now just got a bit complacent.
Cub probably do carry spares as I would expect this happened fairly often .
I would also expect the door to be expensive .
I will getting my local steel supplier to supply the replacement sheet cut to size and I will fold to match and fit to the hinged (WELDED)
and respray to match color myself .
Just another job to be done.

Could be worth giving Cub a call, might be cheaper than you think.

If you can find out how to read e-books you can try this Cub Service & Repair Manual.

The link says it is a pdf download, so you probably don't need an e-Book reader to read it. Any computer, smartphone or tablet should be able to read it natively.

If you want, there are eBook apps which will allow you to import a PDF file and dress it up a bit to make it look more like a book.

Cheers

We did that with our supamatic very early on and I just straightened it out in situ, always had a wrinkle but sealed ok.
found the best solution to doing it again was to put the wooden blocks for the rear legs just inside so that you had to open the rear door to get the blocks to put the rear legs down.

We just brought some spares through cub, rang them on Saturday morning, received the bits about Thursday, we are near Canberra , happy with the service..
Purchase was new mesh for the stone guard, and due to the stone chips on the draw bar a frame, got a set of cub stone flaps which hang off the stone guard... Will look pretty flash, when we get off the couch n put them on.. All up think about $300... Could have done it for less coin, but nice to have the original logo on the flaps... We are happy.. Cheers

Hi Adtrac
We had an incident at Wilson's Prom a couple of years back when a wombat got himself wedged under the back tailgate of our camper and in his struggles to free himself, lifted the whole door, including the stove and sink, off its hinges.
We were asleep inside at the time but the noise was pretty impressive and we scampered outside to find the door lying on the ground. Fortunately we were able to get it back on but learnt a lesson about not closing it at night. Particularly down there.
