Hi all
I have a 12' offroad van (about 1.5t ish). Has anyone taken something similar up Blackdown tableland (south of Blackwater)? I think the road is sealed all the way up but not sure about the "steepness/windiness" of the road.

cheers

Been up that road a few times, I reckon you'll be fine, if not its not a biggy to come back and head for Bedford Wier, you'll be all good in my book.

Have a look at the web siteCamping information it says "Roads are not suitable for heavy trailers and caravans." However I reckon that I would have been able to get my 20' van up there carefully.

It's one thing to get your van there, but the campsites themselves are pretty squeezy. The park information reveals "Camp sites are suitable for: tent camping beside your car, (small) motor homes and vans. Sites 1, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 12 are suitable for tent camping only."

We took our Exodus 11 up there in 2016. No problem. ATM 1800kg. Towed with a 2012 Challenger 2.5 diesel. Road steep in places but all bitumen to the top then good gravel roads to all campsites. Beautiful place.

Years ago we towed our 2200kg hybrid up there behind a 120 Series D4D diesel Prado. Prado was on the limit in Hi 1st. It really needed low range, but the road is sealed and in low range the hairpins would have wound up the transmission beyond reasonable limits.
