Hi all,

Would you guys be able to tell me if I would be able to pull the above trailer around Fraser Island with my GU 3.0 t/d Patrol without a problem?

Also, I am looking at travelling the Victorian High Country with this trailer. The trek I will be following is the trek from Mansfield to Tom Groggin edited by Ron & Viv Moon in "Discover Aust By 4WD".

Just one other thing, is a snorkel essential for both of these trips?

Kind Regards & thanks for the help and advice in advance.

G'day Andrew,

Regarding Frazer, no snorkel is required there unless you want to take your 4wd swimming in the ocean - just kidding.

My rig is a 4.8 auto with a relatively heavy (about 1.3 tonnes) of loaded trailer and have not had any problems. The trick is to let your tyre pressure down in the vehicle and trailer. We normally take the beach from Tewantin and cross over on the Freswater track (unless its safe to go around at Rainbow Beach). Generally the people that get in trouble, do so because they havn't let their tyres down.

It is a little trickier with a trailer particularly on narrow tracks, just be patient.

Kind regards

Gidday Andrew,, I have a cape york explorer Extreme which is heavier than yours with an 8-0 litre engel in the front box which adds to the towball weight and haven't had to many drama's on the beach.. We are at double island all the time so the conditions should be very similar.. just keep an eye on your tide times and also tyre pressure and you shouldn't have a problem..

Keep your whisle wet and your powder dry.. Regards Dodgy..
