Does anyone have any experience towing a kimberley kamper with a turbo diesel prado? Does the prado handle it OK?

Has anyone experienced any particular problems with buying used kimberley kampers?

Thanks & Happy travels !

One of the guys on the Yahoo Prado forum has hired a KK to tow behind his T/D auto & has given a good report.

Hi Duffa,

Probably worth asking at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/campertrailers. Some members have KK's and have advise on what to look for when purchasing a 2nd hand campertrailer.

If buying secondhand, just check that the canvas near the pivot point of the supports hasn't been pinched and rubbed through. Some people don't check that they haven't pinched the canvas when packing up.

Only other thing I've seen broken on a KK was the hinge for the roofrack/floor support - but that was after 2 hours of horrendous corrogations in 45 degree heat. The owner was able to fix it once back in town and it's still going great.

We've just returned from towing a KK about 25000kms over 4 months behind a 99 Petrol Jackaroo. It towed and performed magnificently and I believe would be even better behind a T/D. It travelled over some horrendous roads including, Donohue & Plenty hwys, Chambers Pillar, East Macs, Palm Valley, the Bungle Bungle, Mereenie Loop and the worst of all the Gibb River Road. Be carefull with the canvas, as has been said, (we have a beautiful patch each side, as we were slow learners). I could not reccommend KK highly eneough. Happy trails, Mike.

Thanks for the repolies. I have purchased a three year old KK and can't wait to put it through its paces. I'll be living in the Kimberley in the new year and it should see a fair bit of work.

Currently looking at upgrading the suspension on the Prado. Any tips??

Cheers.
