SAFETY TIPS

Camper Trailer Australia - - BUSH MECHANICS -

Play­ing it safe is cen­tral to a speedy and well thought-out re­cov­ery. So take heed of our top smart strate­gies that min­imise your risks of in­jury.

WALK IT FIRST

The last thing you want is to get stuck be­tween a rock and a hard place with a camper on the back, right? So, walk the track first! Heck, with tech­nol­ogy these days, I’m sur­prised we don’t have drones scout­ing the tracks out for us!

BREAK OUT THE WINCH

If you think an ob­sta­cle could be a tad dan­ger­ous, have a think about winch­ing it up in­stead of at­tempt­ing to go it alone. Winch­ing is a great way to keep a sit­u­a­tion or tech­ni­cal drive nice and con­trolled, and it sure beats hang­ing around on a pre­car­i­ous an­gle while your mates do the last minute scram­ble for the re­cov­ery kit!

LIFE IN LOW RANGE

Low range gear­ing goes with offroad camper trail­ers like ap­ple pie and ice­cream! So, while you’re on those lower speed dirt tracks, why not lock it into low range? The lower gear­ing al­lows a bit more con­trol and make things a much eas­ier for your 4WD, too!
