Hi again.

I won't post on this subject again but I thought I'd ask if there are any Adelaide contributors that might know of a dry (deep) sandy track that I could drive on to check out my car's ability to tow the camper trailer in such conditions.

I don't want to go to Robe or drive on a beach, but somewhere with public access and a dry sand track close to Adelaide.

Gday George,

At Peake, (about 50k from Tailem Bend towards Pinaroo) is a private property with a heap of sand. It's hired out to 4wd (and other) clubs most of the year at the weekends but is ideal for what you want. If you google it (Click here) you'll get an idea of what it's like and you should find the contact number for the Peake post office where you'll get the info.

just remember to let your trailer tyres down to about 10 or 12psi for towing in sand

Gooday George : It might be hard to find what you want close to Adelaide , and i know you said no beach but the Goolwa beach would be a good testing ground on the right day . Theres always people down there on weekends to help if you got stuck .
Around Mannum area and along the river you might find a dry creek bed but at present they might be still wet !!! anyway good luck with it
PS have you tried some of the 4wd clubs ?
