Recreational Flat towing

Information Unimog - Sunday, November 06, 2016
We tested the flat towing system on the corrugations and sandy beaches of South West WA, through the Great Victoria Desert to Queen Victoria Springs and even got caught in a storm on the Balladonia/Zanthus track that created a quagmire of slippery mud to be negotiated. With this experience we were comfortable to tackle the Canning Stock Route with the jeep in tow. So successful was this set up that we towed all the way to Durba Springs (Well 17) before realising that if we didn't unhook the jeep and drive it, we wouldn't be able take on the 200 L of fuel that we had prearranged to have delivered to the fuel dump at Well 23.
