Hi all,

Our next few 4wd trips that we have planned are not trailer friendly so I've decided to sell the Off Road Camper(Aussie Swag), so if anyone is interested they can check out on ebay.com.au

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=32633&item=2484846949&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

Anyway it's time to drag out the old tent. The question I'd like to post is about what are people's thoughts about putting a ground sheet under the tent. In the past I've tried a tarp but it's a pain in the neck cleaning it before putting it back in the car. I've read that some people use Shade Cloth. Is this any better ? any other suggestions ?

Thanks in advance
Phil P

Shade cloth is the go just pick it up and give it a good shake.

Shade cloth is good, and I use a product called "Annexe Matting" which is thicker, but a bit pricey (at around $50 per metre).
The good part is that this stuff does not kill the grass underneath, protects the bottom of the tent, and a quick shake usually sees it clean up quite well. I roll it up and slip mine into a canvas bag.
The Annexe Matting is available from places like Clarke Rubber and bigger camping shops.

I'd be guessing but I think it's around 25-30kgs. It's a very well balanced trailer.

You must be going to some exteme place(s) if you cant take that trailer!!
I like the Aussie Swag trailers as a unit they are in the top of the list when I can afford to buy 1. Melbournes a bit to far for a closer look.

Hi Vinnie,

In 4 weeks I'm doing a double Simpson Desert Crossing, all the research I've done has convinced me that trailers are a not recommended. Next Years trip includes a train trip from Adelaide to Alice on the Ghan. Trailers can't be be put on the Ghan. That's my trips for the next 2 years.
