I was also contemplating taking the van from Oodnadatta
through to Mt Dare and then onto Finke and Maryvale. I was then going to leave it there and go into Chambers Pillar
, camp overnight and return to the van. I have driven there 8 years ago and the only dificulty i may have with the van from Maryvale was some bulldust holes, but by memory, we would have no other problems towing the rapid in but conditions could be quite different now. I was planning this trip in late August. Previously i went in by approaching the Pillar by the Hugh River Stock Route to Maryvale.
It would be interesting for Windsor
Rapid (off road suspension
) owners to let people know where they have taken their vans, so others would know where they could possibly go in the future.
I'm willing to say where iv'e been and would be interested in other trip reports as well so i can have confidence in tackling tracks knowing that Rapids have made it through.

the Hugh river stock road was the one i was talking about, did you take your rapid on this road/track? i went all the way up the oodnadatta track
to fink, Maryvale station then onto Alice two years ago and had no problems. the road from Hamilton station
to the springs was a bit rough though. could not go to chambers pillar
because the road was closed.
