In July of this year we would like to travel from well23 to well33 on the C.S.R. as part of a bigger trip. We will be driving a 2000 Turbo Diesel Jackaroo and pulling a John Hawkes Off Road Trailer that has all the off road suspension, wheels and tyres and Tregg coupling.I have been told that trailers are a no no , can I have some expert advice on whether we travel the route or go on an alternative.

GD
My mate asked me the same thing the other day if i knew anyone who had travelled the CSR with a trailer.
He knew you couldn`t take one from i think well 1-5 but after that you could if you were set up properly and was willing to take alternative routes at times.
He was looking at leaving in may/june from well 5 i think for 5-6 weeks

Some have towed trailers successfully along the Canning and others have had heaps of strife. I have advocated that one should not take a trailer on the Canning for the simple reason that the dunes get chewed out with the extra stresses put on the towing vehicle and there are many thoughts for and against on this. From memory there is only one dune between Well 23 and 33 and that is the one just before Well 26 heading north. The steeper and larger dunes on the Canning are between Well 35 and 45.
Enjoy........

Cheers,
