myself and friends have taken caravans of various ages and types to Fraser Island
via Inskip Point
many times, all without a problem. tyre pressure is the key, so let them down and you should be ok, i have been bogged once coming off the barge from Fraser at Inskip, but it was my own fault for not having let the tyres back down from 25 psi whilst i was driving up and down the hard sand.
we have had vans from an offroad 17 ft Jayco to a 17ft onroad Millard and 13ft 1970's poptop Millard vans on the island, all pictured below.
we stay away from the inland tracks with the vans, just time our drive up the hard sand from Inskip Point
about 2 hours before lowtide, and set up camp somewhere north of The Maheno for a 2 week stay.

Thanks for the advice Rumpig. I guess the tyres should go down to about 15psi for the soft sand?
Also, I hear many people suggest camping north of the Maheno. Is that to get away from the day trippers? I got as far up as the Maheno when I day tripped in January, and learned that at times it would be like camping on the Bruce Highway.
