Award-winning Australian manufacturer Cub Campers is thrilled to announce its latest innovation – the EZ-X auto-opening system.
The EZ-X is the natural evolution of the Ezy-wind winch system, and makes our camper trailer set up and pack down easier than ever. All you have to do is press a button on the remote controller!
Making set up even ezy-er
While the Ezy-wind winch system ensures set up is quick and easy, there is a manual process involved. The new system takes all the effort out of setting up. This makes it ideal for older campers or people with disabilities.
Developed by Cub founder Roger Fagan, the system uses a 12 volt motor connected to a reduction gearbox. It is controlled with a garage door type remote switch with a manual switch backup.
According to Roger, the big advantage of the remote is that one person can lower the roof and tuck in the canvas at the same time.
Thousands of hours of R & D
Roger Fagan spent around 1000 hours over three years developing the system at the Cub proving ground and testing facility in the NSW Southern Highlands. The test model has been opened and closed over 1200 times, which is equivalent to 30 years of normal use.
Roger’s main focus was on reliability, as many Cub customers tour the outback.
The prototype has been thoroughly tested over rough roads, bush tracks and numerous river crossings at the Cub proving ground. During the testing period the camper has travelled over 11,000 kilometres including a trip to Dirk Hartog Island.
To protect this innovative design Cub has taken out a worldwide patent.
In the unlikely event of failure, the mechanism can be easily disassembled to allow manual opening with the winch.
The most affordable auto-opening system on the market
Camper trailers with auto-opening systems usually retail for $40,000 or more. However, Roger wanted to make sure the design for the EZ-X was simple, reliable and affordable – just like Cub’s popular campers.
The EZ-X is now available as an optional extra on all Cub’s hard floor rear-folding models, starting from $3,000 RRP*.

Roger will be demonstrating the EZ-X throughout the NSW Supershow. To see the system in action, just head to Cub stand 602 from 25–30 April.
