Cub premieres new camper, the lightweight, forward-fold Scout

Cub Campers has used the Let’s Go Brisbane Caravan & Outdoor Sale to premiere its new camper, the lightweight, forward-fold Scout.

Cub says it’s taken 12 months of intense R&D to bring the Scout camper to the Cub Campers range, and the Scout has been created in response to Cub customer feedback.

Since its release in 2016, the Cub Frontier has stood out as the only 100% Australian-made forward fold, while its ease of set-up and rugged construction has made it the most popular model in Cub’s range, according to the manufacturer. Cub says it took the key features that drew customers to the Frontier, to develop the Scout with a new type of camper in mind.

Cub has created one of the lightest forward-fold camper trailers on the market. With a tare weight of 1113kg and a ball weight of just 105kg, the Scout is an ideal family camper for the small to medium SUV owner looking to head out for a beach getaway. This could be perfect timing for the Sydney manufacturer as a post-COVID flood of new campers are looking to enter the market.

The Scout is a modern trailer that feels more like a caravan, says Cub, but with the benefits of a range of innovative features and a smaller footprint when set up. Cub Campers is confident that the Scout will join the rest of the iconic Cub Camper trailers as a clear customer favourite.

With a focus on a high level of comfort, quality and design the ‘Scout’ offers greater storage and living space internally compared to other models on the market and will easily accommodate two adults and two children. Inside, the Scout has a comfortable double bed and lounge area with plenty of storage space. Power use is kept to a minimum with LED lighting and the interior is well lit and ventilated naturally.

Externally, the high-quality kitchen features a SMEV three-burner stainless-steel stove, and a stainless sink and more LED lighting. Cub has also included a 100-litre heavy-duty water tank as standard – meaning less need for carrying additional water on those long trips that takes up precious storage space.

As with all its models, Cub Campers designs, manufactures and maintains the Scout in Australia. Built with exceptionally high-quality Australian products, such as Bluescope Steel and Wax Converters canvas, Cub reckons its customers can be confident in the quality and reliability.

If you’re available to make the Let’s Go Brisbane Caravan & Outdoor Sale between October 29 and November 1, 2020 then you can have a look at the Scout in person. If not, RV Daily will have a review of the new Scout very soon.

The Cub Scout is priced at $29,990. For more information head to the Cub Campers website, here
