Cub camper disaster!!!...well not quite disaster...

Just had a Redarc smart charger fitted on the 'new' camper and some other car work done at my local brilliant auto electrician and was backing out down a narrow drive - no opportunity to turn round in the premises.

As the Cub went out into the road I thought I heard a 'noise' but was on my own and had checked absolutely everything before starting off so was 'sure' it wasn't my rig making it.

A nano second later there was a 'ping' and 'splat' and I saw pieces of coloured perspex/plastic whizzing throught the air...

The stone guard on the Cub had come round too far on the tight lock and shattered my rear driver side tail light! Never had a stone guard fitted on anything before and so this eventuality never entered my head.

Cost - feeling daft and $45.00 for a new one at a breakers yard.

Let that be a lesson to me - I managed to get it home safely - but I ALWAYS manage to bust SOMETHING when I get anything new!!!

Bad Luck there Geo. About this time last year I was at the top Redbank Gorge camp ground out in the West MacDonnells and had a metal pole jump out and scrape the side of my new camper trailer whilst on its maiden voyage, so I feel your pain. I blame the Government for putting the pole in the wrong spot ;)

Don't Stress mate, a few years ago i was sitting in the landy ute in my front yard yakking on the phone, not realizing i was slowly creeping backwards, A big crunch woke me up!, iand to my horror i had put the corner of the ute tray through the side of our caravan!...The air was blue for a while i can tell

Cheers Axle.
