Hi Debbie,

I havn't got a Coromal, but I have seen them at various camp grounds along our travels, and speeking to the owners comparing notes etc (we have a Goldstream Storm) and they all seem happy with there off road performance, and in my oppinion, looking at and underneath them they seem a fairly sturdy unit.

I'm currently camped near a Jayco Penguin "off road" and to be honest it doesn't look anywhere near as "robust" as the Coromal, but this guy has done the Gibb, Cape York, had the van all the way into the Bungle Bungles, the Tanami and variouse other tough roads, and he reckons, just air down and slow down and you'll get them there.

I know it's not quite the answer to your question, but if its of any help, I'm going to do the Gibb in my Goldstream, and then Cape York, and I'm quite confident it will hold up fine, you will hear a lot of people that rant and rave about the type of trailor that is required for certain roads, but to be honest, so far in our tour of OZ, we have seen several of these "softer" off road vans in areas where some folk say they wouldn't make it.

But as I mentioned earlier, Air down and Slow down! and you'll be fine.

Sorry to rave on a bit, but I thought I would mention, that we are currently in Broome, and today I did a day trip up the Cape Levique road without our van, to see if it is as bad as everyone has been telling me, and to see if it would be possible to get our van up for a few days camping, what I found was that allthough corrigated and rough, I have no doubts I could get our Van up after airing down, and I'm glad I had a look for my self and didn't just listen to all the Dooms dayers, what I did see, was a lot of the more seriouse off road vans on the road and plenty of them seem to be travelling to fast for the conditions as far as I'm concerned, so therfore they probably need the stronger units, but they also do more damage to the roads with excessive speed!
