Planning a trip in August and this route is part of it. Question is what condition are these roads usually in given they take road train traffic and providing no big rain prior to mid July.
The van I'm towing is 2014 Coromal Silver Series 6 inch chassis and independent leaf spring suspension (no shocky's). Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Dont know about the road but I would be fitting shock absorbers and make sure that th springs are eye to eye, not slipper springs. This will ensure many years of safe dirt road/rough road travel. Bob

A couple of years ago we towed our Gazal Offroad van from Bourke to Tibooburra &
I have to tell you the Bourke/Wanaaring section was the roughest we encountered.
Including the Plenty, Walkers Crossing & GCR. But I'm sure you can do it..albeit
slowly in parts..:))). Our van has no shocks, & I don't consider that critical on a leaf
sprung axle. What you do need is plenty of underbody protection for wiring, piping etc. Cable ties & tape wont cut it. Care with internal packing is advised as well. I don't
reduce tyre pressure but you make your own judgment on that. We had no issues but
had to tie wire brake wiring behind axle as no amount of tape or cable ties lasted for
more than 50Km. cheers...oldbaz.

Brad and Jenny,

This is our normal route to and from the Corner Country and is a good road and drive with the usual rain event caveats. I wouldn't envisage any problem for you and your vehicle/van.

Enjoy,
