The slider on the door of my Cub Supamatic finally gave up the ghost and needed replacement. The obvious solution was to call Cub Campers and see if they had any. Yep, they had them in stock......$65ea. WTF?????

$65 for one of these:



So I went to a boat place that does canvas repairs and got one for $2.

There is absolutely no excuse for trying to rip people off like this. They buy these things probably by the thousands at a cent or two each and then have the gall to charge $65 for a replacement.:angryfir:

Cheers

Ray, that has to be the worst rip iv ever heard. Did you call and rant ?
I'm considering emailing Cub in Sydney, but I doubt that they'd be in the least bit concerned, if that's the sort of price they've set on such a insignificant item.

Cheers

I had a similar issue with zip on my trailer the day before our Fraser Island trip... I went and saw Paul at ****atoo Canvas, he fixed it on the spot no charge. Great bloke.

I emailed Cub Campers in Sydney, venting my disgust at the insane price for such a simple item, and received a response. It appears that I was quoted for something completely different for some reason. It appears that my explanation of what I was after simply didn't sink in with whoever was at the other end of the phone. I can't understand how one could misconstrue a zipper with a tent pole.:confused:

$65.00 for a tent pole is requires you to lube up your anus...
