Travelled the CSR with a bloke in an F350 in June. He did it pretty easily although fuel was a bit touch and go at times. Had that spray on skin stuff to protect duco, worked well. He's on one of the Facebook CSR groups.

Parts of the CSR are very narrow. We drove with the mirrors in on a DMax

Not sure if it still applies but Cunyu Station had a ban on anything bigger than a Troopie.

On my first CSR trip in 2007 there was a F250 dual cab in the group. There were a few passengers and the ability to swap seats and a ride in the big Ford was keenly sought.

Bit more comfort and leg room I think. Certainly no trouble with the dunes. The wider track might expose tyres to more sidewall damage.

In the Gard's Travellers Guide there is a picture of a F100 with a camper back taken in 1987.

I know of another person who did it more recently in a Silverado. Fuel use was an issue and he was pretty low towards the end.

Cunyu signs now specify f350 as maximum size.

How do they measure "size"?

Odd, during my three visits to Oz, I can't remember seeing a SuperDuty anywhere. Maybe because they were all out on the CSR? :)

Maybe because there are better vehicles available for the bush?
Towing a big caravan would be fine.
I owned a1984 F350 4WD camper for 12 years. The chassis cracked and was welded and plated 6 times. I thought I might replace it with a new F250 or 350 4WD in 2001, but after looking at and driving a new one, never looked at them again.

Visit Mandurah in WA. Years ago the Ford dealer there was reputed to be one of the the biggest sellers of F-trucks in the country.

Lots of people there with big vans and big boats.
