4wd Camper Trailer Setup

4wd Camper Trailer Setup

2 Apr 2014

If you’ve spent a lot of time around camper trailers you’ll know that pretty often they don’t look much like the nice tidy ones they show in the brochures. Browse the maker’s website or flick through the shiny magazines in a camping shop and all that bright, clean canvas looks like it’s just been scrubbed and ironed. Roofs are stretched tight, corners are square and the whole thing looks so good you just want to sell your house and live in it. Back in the real world you’re on the campsite standing beside something that looks like a sack of wallabies, wondering where it all went wrong.

Packing Your 4wd At The End Of A Trip

Packing Your 4wd At The End Of A Trip

2 Apr 2014

So you’re out on your first camping trip and you can’t quite work out what’s going wrong. Everything was neatly stored in the vehicle when you left home, but now you’re packing up to leave your third campsite and it’s all a bit different. All your sleeping bags seem to have grown into duvets. Soot from the stove has ended up on the tent. You can’t find all the bits of the mozzie net. And what’s that dripping from the rubbish bag onto your spare clothes?

Camping with Mosquitoes - How to Avoid your Itchy Friends

Camping with Mosquitoes - How to Avoid your Itchy Friends

2 Apr 2014

We’ve talked about Australia’s more irritating wildlife before, but we figured mosquitoes are so bad they deserved some more attention. In fact what we wanted to look at are some of the myths about how to keep the little pests off you when you’re camping. There are dozens of these, and any time you complain about mozzies you’re sure to hear a few, but nobody’s all that sure about how well they work. We did think of challenging the Mythbusters to test them but we figured they’re not that keen on being eaten alive, so we ended up doing it ourselves.

Stop With Confidence - Electronic Brake Controllers

Stop With Confidence - Electronic Brake Controllers

2 Apr 2014

If you have a trailer for your 4wd it’s always tempting to load it up. After all you’ve got all that extra space so why not throw in all the luxuries you could want, your favourite armchair and ten cases of VB? It’s not always space you should be worrying about though. Weight’s an issue as well. You need to be careful pulling heavy trailers around, and the law tries to make sure of that – any trailer weighing over 750kg loaded needs to have some sort of brakes fitted. We think brakes on anything over 500kg is a good idea. Your best option for most trailers is electric brakes, and that’s going to mean doing some work on your vehicle too. Here’s how to do it.

Mud Driving Recovery Techniques

Mud Driving Recovery Techniques

2 Apr 2014

If you want to know what "sinking feeling" really means, try driving into a patch of deep mud. Suddenly it feels like your wheels have been dipped in glue, the steering stops working, your vehicle starts to settle and speed falls off. Before you know it you're stopped. And stuck. If you go off road in wet weather you're going to have this experience sooner or later, so you need to be prepared for it. Part of that is having the right gear to get yourself out; you also need to know what to do. Trial and error is not the way to go when you have a couple of tons of vehicle up to its axles in mud. We thought we'd put together a few tips to help you out.
