Sounds pretty close to the mark, trailer may be a little overloaded, so you need to keep it in the back of your mind all the time when making traffic/terrain driving decisions
50Kg for the missus, wow are you crawlin or what LOL Have a great trip

not sure about the weights, but curious about the LC weight as ours is probably packed about the same.

Will keep an eye out for you. We leave on Saturday from Gympie.

Travel safe and have a great time

Hope you have a great trip too Shaz.
We will be travelling alone until Cairns then we will meet with another couple who drive a rather elevated 80 Series. We are both towing campers, If you see us say hello.
We are staying at Clairview for the first night.
