CAN I TAKE A CAMPER TRAILER

With the ever-growing popularity of ‘camper and off-road’ trailers a very common question asked by most owners is “Can I take my camper”, this question is usually answered, 'NO', but I say ‘YES’.

Like most things, there is a certain set of criteria to be adhered to. If you are going to take a trailer 'bush' here is a list I have prepared that has helped me in doing so.

  • How much ‘stuff’ is going to put in the trailer - meaning how heavy is it going to be?
  • Secondly what vehicle are you going to tow it with?
  • How much extra fuel is required when towing the trailer?
  • Thirdly I consider the weight distributed between the car and trailer, better than having all your eggs in one basket, so to speak, with all the weight in the car.

I have successfully towed a camper trailer through the desert on numerous occasions including mud, large and small sand hills, and even cross-country.
