Camper trailer

I will be towing a camper behind a 100 series t/d.

Would it be possible to do the tele track especially the southern part especially palm creek.

Is Bloomfield track OK to do as well.

It depends on which camper?

Bypass Roads to the Cape
by: Marty

16ft New Age Manta Ray Off Roader towed by 100 series Landcruiser Would you guys take it to the Cape?

Your advice very much appreciated

Hi Marty,

It looks to me it's a caravan - if that's the case, the Old Telegraph Track i would definitely not recommend at all.

Bloomfield Track - me and ex partner Rob pulled a 12 ft caravan through the Bloomfield Track by an 80 Series Landcruiser and had no issues. I hope this gives you an idea to make the decision.

Would we take a caravan to the Cape .. they all get shaken whether on or off roaders - just because there are so many corrugations. Even if you didn't get any damage straight away, it does add to wear and tear considerably.

While many people bring their vans, you can really just take straight way up and Bypass Roads, missing out all the fun on the Old Telegraph and all other tracks.

So my answer is no, i would not bring a caravan to the Cape.
