For anyone to answer it would be handy to know what you are driving and what caravan is it.

The 100 series should b okay as long as you let the tyres down and have upgraded at least the shock absorbers for the corrugations.

The van I have no knowledge. But from the photo it does not look like it would be okay for any rough roads. Especially corrugations.

Lets hope someone drops in.

Incidentally isn't it a bit late to start asking. Personally I would have asked that question weeks ago with the understanding that it may change due to weather.

But I may be wrong here. Lets hope someone drops in with a more informative answer. We don't tow any more as we found it too restrictive for the offroad tracks and Vic alps.

We did ask before but as you know it can change over night.there was a lot of rain recently so we thought we would ask now no good planning 6months ago and just taking pot luck so we thought we would ask the members for any ideas. Also the really interesting thing to look at.there are a lot of clever people out ther so we thought we would ask. Thanks. Allen

Beside you thread is a little box headed Oodnadatta Track, click on more and all will be reviled.
We have done the track 4 or 5 times now and find something different every time.
Good free camping anywhere along the track, and also some that you have to pay for.
Enjoy the trip.
Cheers
