The Brumby follows the same easy set-up principle as others in the Cub Campers line-up: in basic terms, it's a case of unclip, unwind and then lock everything into place.
Note: before you start setting up, if your numberplate is mounted on the camper’s roof rack, remove it.
Also, our test Brumby had the spare-wheel carrier on a swing-away bar* at the rear of the camper, so we had to unlock that and swing it right out of the way, so it was clear of the back so it did not impede the set-up process. (* It’s part of the optional $1300 Adventure Pack.)
We then unclipped four latches, one near each top corner of the camper, and moved to the camper’s front to start using the Ezy-wind silent winch, which is standard on the Brumby.
As the winch unwinds – it really is very quiet – the camper unfolds to the rear and, once the hard-floor entry-way is in place, its legs can be extended to the ground to support that section.
Then the heavier-duty AL-KO wind-down support legs, under the camper’s main body and behind the axle, can be unlocked and set into place.
From there, it was simply a matter of extending the interior ceiling poles and locking them in place in order to keep the canvas all-round taut.
Then we took a walk around the Brumby and locked everything into place, including two press-studs on the floor’s rear edge and tie-down loops at various spots along each side of the camper and its front.
