^^Apparently they needed extra cans for Fix a Flat.
Yeah, but a flat on the trailer isn't life threatening. Ditch the trailer. I was just wondering if there was an advantage to having a high traction tire on a pulled trailer that has no drive or if it was just for the toughness of the tire itself, but the traction is irrelevant.
Haven't seen the video but are they the same size as the vehicle? Maybe the trailer wheels/tires can be used as spares as well. That would be a pretty smart move if you could get axles with the same bolt pattern as your vehicle.
Yeah, they use the same tires as the vehicle pulling them on a lot of those trailers so the trailer itself can be used for extreme emergencies. also, I dont think trailers use the better 10 ply tire walls to keep from getting flats so easy otherwise. Its not a traction thing-you could run slicks on the trailer or you could take the tires off and just drag the trailer through the bush with a makeshift skids.
I lived in far North Queensland for many years.
This kind of wheeling just to get to a camp site is normal.
My previous trucks (2 - Y61 GU Nissan patrol) was set up so me and the family were completely self sufficient for 2 weeks.
Trucks needed to be set up for self recovery in completely remote locations
Sweet video, thanks for sharing.
It should be noted his trailer is reinforced. First thing I noticed was the insulating metal sheets on the bottom half of it keeping it impermeable as well as dent free!
Jesus this is crazy haha
