We first encountered a Cub Spacevan when camping in the Warrumbungles in 2012. Nick's had a similar model on his wishlist ever since!
The Spacevans aren't as readily available on the used market as other models - and as usual we had a budget, which also limited options.
Interstate ads were not considered, due to Covid travel restrictions.
A local-ish listing seemed to be for a 4WD/Spacevan package, so had been crossed off our "list". On further reading though, Nick made a phone enquiry and arranged a viewing last week. We really liked the sellers and their sale price - so paid a deposit before heading home and then collected our new-to-us Cub Spacevan yesterday!
What did we buy? A 2006 model, fitted with semi-off road transcontinental pack (which means a longer/stronger drawbar, reinforced chassis, high tensile axle, locking water filler and steel water tank protector). Nick and I were married in early 2006, so quite like the fact that our Spacevan was built the same year!
The Spacevan came with a folder of paperwork including original advertising brochures, fridge and stove manuals, notes made by previous owners and the very important set-up instructions. It's been very interesting to read through.
We've been organising this past week, hoping to test our new acquisition during the school holidays. There's still a bit to do/improvise but we have fingers crossed for departure going ahead, more or less as planned!
