AAHH memories.
Lots of them from the years we owned our Drover off-road....some good...some not so good.
Enjoy this one you 2. They are really good campers overall...and seem to hold their value too.

Cheers Keith

Had to go and see a local plumbing supplies while in town today and while there asked about some pipe and fittings etc to make a pole carrier to the Cub. He rattled of some figure, said he had some off-cut pipe he would give me so the end cap, screw on cap and fitting and two brackets came to an agreeable amount. Thank you very much. Next project to make a pole carrier. Even checked the bag with the current poles fits the pipe. Should be good.

Make sure your brackets are up to the job of putting up with hours of corrugated roads.

Nice unit Al!

I've alway liked the hard floor cub campers. We've got a cub 3 camper from the late '70's early '80's era - pop top with the slide out beds at each end. It's in for a new chassis atm - long term project!

Does it go well offroad or is it not used in that manner?

Cheers

The old Cub Drifters. Not a bad old camper.

We are happy with the hard floor, being up off a wet floor is good. The camper has followed where we have taken it so far. Haven't done any hard off roading with it as such, but we are happy with the way it tows so far.

That's the one - a drifter 3 to be exact! It needs a new chassis due to some "family friends" borrowing it and ploughing through a washout, bending the jockey wheel mount (jockey wheel probably left in place) and the tow hitch. Chassis was cracked and patched with some dodgy welding. All of this happened before I was apart of the family...

Well the planets aligned once again over the Easter break and we finally managed to get away for a bit of camping. We tried earlier this year and only made it 20 odd kays up the road when the alternator packed it in. Anyhow this time we made it up to the river and had a great couple of days before work got in the way again.
