Hi Adam
I would not take a camper on this trip as it is in steep country and if it rains you will have a lot of problems its not so bad going forward but if you have to reverse that's when it starts.
You would have to be a very experienced 4wd driver as well.

Probably get thru the Davies plains track towing the camper (depending on dampness) but the Tom Groggin to Mt Pinnibar is a steep track. I think you would struggle to get a camper up there especially if its damp. Another option I would suggest is, leave the camper at Dogmans hut camp area or across the river at Tom Grggins camp ground and do a drive upto Mt Pinnibar. It is only about an hour each way with a fantastic view. The drive is steep but an excellent 4wd track. You can see Mt Kiosko and 360 around the high country.
You can then come back to the camper, throw a couple of cold ones down and do nice drive north up the Alpine way to Corryong. Have a good one.

I have an offroad Goldstream Storm and travel in the high country quite extensively. I wouldn't even think of taking ot on the Davies plain track. It is way too heavy.

I am probably not the right person to ask re towing a camper in the high country as I leave it at home when I go there. Though you could get it into the Wonanngatta from the North. Do a search on camper Wonnangatta on this site. The biggest issues in the high country will be tight tracks with switchbacks and it gets mighty sliperry with rain avoind them and it should be ok.
