I found an old forum thread re problems getting the tent to set properly on Cub Campers. 2013 and I still have the same problems with my Cub escape which I have owned for 3 years. The company are happy to reset it but it never stays reset.
As in the previous forum thread I have given up. However I have now found that I can tie the back out (to a tree or post) using the eyelets on the back of the tent and straighten it up! This is wonderful as I am now able to zip the door up easily.
Are others still having this problem?

Hi Ray

I'm having same problem with my drover - most frustrating.

What do you mean 'tie the back out '?

cheers

Hi Ray,

Its a bit of an art to get the tent to be taut but once youve mastered it, its easy. Ive found the biggest prob is camping on uneven ground.

Hi Wilko,

Hi Phil
I will put up a Picture ASAP to show you my solution. I plan to get a couple of very large tent pegs or steel fence posts to use when I have no "trees".
Cheers

Thanks anyway Ray,

I'll keep in mind your suggestion and see if I can get it to work next time my set up gives me grief

Make sure the fold out floor is set up properly and that the 2 edges at the back are the same distance apart. Zip the door up before you tension the tent. Look for ripples and adjust as necessary to get the ripples out. Quite simple once you get the knack.

I'll try zipping up first then tensioning tent.

I have a cub camper also and had the same trouble with the door. I took it to the local canvas bloke to have the zip fixed and he set the camper up. The door zipped up better than ever and he was the one that told me about making sure the door is zipped up closed when setting the camper up. Such a simple thing that you just don't give a thought to.
Now after 10 years it's better than ever.

Cheers
Scoof. :-)
