Tips For Towing Your Trailer or Caravan Along the Beach

Posted by Trav & Nat from @tracks.we.travel on Aug 20, 2020 9:44:03 AM

The thought of towing your home on wheels down a beach or soft track can be daunting, it certainly took us a while to build up the confidence to do solo trips along remote beaches on our trip around Australia. However, these days if we stumble across a remote beach you bet, we will be dropping the tyres and searching for that perfect camp. Having the confidence to tow your home up the beach opens up a whole new world of camping options and will often get you to that picture-perfect camp spot without another soul around.

Beach camping has always been our go-to, our first trips were in our old and trusty single cab Hilux which we’d sleep in the back of. The formula back then was simple, drop your tyres and give it plenty of right foot! But as our camping/ touring set up has evolved we now have an extra pair of wheels dragging behind us, which makes beach driving a little trickier, but certainly still do-able. So, we thought we’d save you a little bit of pain and share a few tips we’ve learnt along the way. Admittedly most were learnt the hard way.

Off Grid Living

Posted by Trav & Nat from @tracks.we.travel on Aug 18, 2020 7:42:31 AM

Australia has some of the best camping in the world, but to take advantage of the best spots you need to get off grid. How long you last off grid is generally governed by how much water you can carry, how much fresh food you can store, how much power you can hold and how quickly you can recharge your 12v. Our Z-10.0 EXPEDITION SERIES by ZONE RV has been cleverly thought out to make the most of off-road touring so here are a few key features that allow us to stay off grid for longer.

In the STORAGE ZONE

Posted by Trav & Nat from @tracks.we.travel on Jun 8, 2020 10:00:00 PM

One of our favourite features of the Z-10 EXPEDITION SERIES is the well thought out and generous amount of storage. Gone are the days of working out which single shirt and pair of shorts you are going to pack, we have plenty of room for all our summer and winter gear which is essential when doing the big lap around Australia.

James Price Point

Posted by Trav & Nat from @tracks.we.travel on Feb 26, 2020 5:00:00 PM

If you haven’t heard of this place I’d say there’s a good chance you’ve seen photos of it. It’s hard to miss the vibrant red cliffs that meet the white sand and turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. This iconic place is actually a surprisingly easy day trip from Broome, but if you want to make the most of it I’d hitch on the trailer or throw in the swag because this place lights up on sunset and transforms shape on different tides.

Our Favourite “End Of Week Curry”

We’re pretty lucky that we have a 75 litre fridge in our ZONE RV Z-10.0 EXPEDITION SERIES and a spare 45 litre in our car...however there are still those final days of a off grid mission that can leave us scraping the barrel for “foodspiration”. So here’s our go to when we are on fresh food rations.

In November we made our way down the Ningaloo coast with our best mate Boz.

Here are our top four picks!
