CAMPING - CAMPER TRAILERS
The Cub Drifter six-berth family off-roader was launched in the 1970s and continues to evolve today. The GT version was launched in 2023.
Building on the original Drifter’s success and drawing inspiration from market demands for double-fold camper trailers, Cub Campers released the Drifter II in 2020 and upgraded it further in early 2022. The GT version was launched in 2023.
Drifter II is the only Australian-made double-fold camper trailer on the market, combining the space of a caravan with the functionality and price of a camper trailer.
Drifter II is said to be one of the fastest and easiest double-folds to set up, taking one person around three minutes.
The Drifter II is designed to sleep up to six people in three double beds. The main sleeping area is furnished with a 2100mm x 1600mm pocket-spring mattress, for maximum comfort and the rear section has a 1660mm x 1370mm medium-foam mattress for the kids or guests. The dinette area converts to a third sleeping area, for extended family members or friends.
The kitchen features a fold-out shelf, SMEV three-burner stainless-steel stove, stainless-steel sink, LED lighting and an extra-long, 1400mm pantry drawer.
Drifter II has a luggage rack at the front of the trailer and a 100-litre heavy duty water tank is standard.
The drawbar was lengthened by 100mm in 2022.
Built with high-quality Australian products, including Australian Bluescope Steel and Wax Converters’ Australian canvas, Drifter II preserves Cub Campers’ proud reputation for delivering great products.
The original AGM batteries were replaced by two 100Ah lithiums in 2022, along with an upgraded Projecta charger.
LED lighting has been improved and a 12V socket and USB added.
The Drifter GT took the lightweight capabilities of the popular Scout and combined those with the functionality and comfort of the Drifter.
With a tare of 1240kg, an ATM of 1800kg and a ball weight of 135kg, it provided a lighter footprint without sacrificing space.
The interior features queen and double beds with LED lighting fitted to ensure the interior is bright and well-lit, whilst minimizing power usage.
The Drifter GT was fitted with Cub’s high-quality kitchen, featuring textured stainless steel work surfaces, a SMEV 3 burner stainless steel stove and sink, and LED lighting.
Also included was a 100L heavy-duty water tank and storage options throughout.
