My son is looking at buying one of these and just wondering if anyone has any information on them.
They have a brand new baby and time for them to get rid of the roof top tent. They will be towing it with a Troopy and will want to be off the beaten track when they go away. Anyone know their off road ability? They don't have a lot of cash and would prefer a hard floor.
Any thoughts or information appreciated

There are several models of Kamparoo from that era, from very basic on-road, to full off road. They came with several suspension set-ups, wheel sizes etc.

Camp-o-matic campers in the same vintage are very similar, but come up for sale less often.

Both are built extremely well!

The biggest drawback is if the canvas is original, it'll be getting quite old.

Hi phantom, we had a CUB, It belonged to my Father, and I think it was a Supermatic of that vintage. While we did not take it “full off road”, we travel on some pretty bad gravel roads. It did pretty well, but we did have to have the ladder frame welded up when a couple of the cross bars let go where they were welded to the chassis. Also, the fly screens started to split, and had to be sewn back together. Given the age of the one you are looking at, if it has the original canvas & insect screens, it is also likely to start to deteriorate. If he can afford, your son may be better to look at a slightly newer model.

There was a pretty new looking green cub abandoned on the gunbarrel in 2015 and an older model cub abandoned on the Anne Beadell in 2016.

That’s enough of an advertisement for me.

Cheers Greg

No idea of thier budget and have no personal experience with CUB (other then reading mixed reports on them) so can’t help there, but if I was looking for a cheaper hardfloor camper, i’d be looking at the older Aussie Swag campers myself.

Thank yo everyone for your replies,
He has bought this camper so only time will tell. We'll be catching up with him on Grand Final weekend on the Murray River somewhere as I can review it then.
What is it with youngsters that they need it NOW and can't do a bit of research and wait for a few weeks. Or am I showing my age lol...
