Camper Trailer Safety Tips - Cub Campers

Camper Trailer Safety Tips

21 August 2020

Chances are that before every big trip you take, you have a checklist to run through to make sure that everything is packed and you have enough supplies to last you for your time on the road. What many people forget, however, is to include a full safety check to ensure that they are fully prepared for the adventure ahead. With every Cub sold, we provide a handy booklet to cover everything you need to know about your new camper trailer, and included in that book is a list of safety tips to make sure that your next holiday goes smoothly. In case you need a little refresher, we’ve included the list of the key elements to check before you hit the road.

Servicing your Camper

  • It is Strongly recommended that you check wheel nuts, tyre pressures, bearings and adjust brakes (if fitted) after having travelled 100 km.
  • Regular servicing of your camper trailer should be undertaken at no less than 12 month intervals, but it is highly recommended that you have your camper serviced after any extended journey, prior to any further extended travelling.  Regular servicing should include checking tyres for wear and correct pressure, bearings (inspect, re-pack or replace), suspension, brakes (if fitted), tail lights, safety chain/s, tow hitch, all other fixings.
  • Servicing should only be undertaken by suitably qualified technicians.
  • If any guidance is required, please contact your local Cub Campers dealer.
  • It’s a good idea to get your brakes checked regularly, especially before a big trip.
  • WARNING: IF THERE IS EVER A NEED TO REPLACE THE GAS STRUTS ON YOUR CAMPER, THIS SHOULD ONLY BE UNDERTAKEN BY A TRAINED TECHNICIAN.

Cub Recommended Jacking Points

These are the details of the Cub recommended jacking points.

Please ensure when using a jack that the area is safe, nobody is under the trailer, and that the other wheel is securely chocked.

  • If you need to change a tyre on your camper, ensure that the jack is positioned correctly. For Off Road models with independent suspension, jack to be positioned on angle at rear of suspension (as per photos)
  • For Off Road models with beam axle/leaf spring suspension (e.g. Explorer, Traveller) and light off road models (Weekender), the jack needs to be positioned on the axle.
