Latest 4WD Trips & Techniques

View All: Trips | Techniques | Touring

Roughing it can be fun, but having some conveniences – even luxuries – among your touring gear is always going to win for most of us. Do you want to cook and eat all your meals sitting round a fire? That has some appeal for a group of younger blokes, but if you’re on a trip with your family you probably want a bit more comfort. The same goes double on a longer expedition – it stays fun a lot longer if you can sit down to a proper meal, instead of digging in with a billy in your lap.

Taking a table with you will make your camps a lot more pleasant. You can do a lot more food preparation with a table, then enjoy a nice meal with your arse on a chair instead of in the dirt. The only problem is that proper tables are a bit of a pain to haul around.

We are taking a look into some of the best rated apps available that can help you plan and navigate your next trip. Using modern day technology only makes sense when we often try to cut down on the amount of stuff that we carry when heading away. When we are able to access a wide variety of information through apps we no longer need to buy multiple different expensive devices for our windscreens and we don’t need to have that pile of books and maps on the back seat!

You often hear people talking about how camping is good for the soul and you would like to get in on this too but you have never been camping before. So where do you start? What do you need? Where do you go?

To start you need to identify how much space you have available in your vehicle, you may need to consider if a roof rack is required for your new found camping adventures.
Roof Racks not only provide additional space for carrying your gear, they also allow you to fit accessories such as an awning for protection from the elements or a roof top tent if you choose to purchase one for sleeping.
Considering the space available in your vehicle for your gear also impacts on the type and amount of gear you will carry for camping.
