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!
