Spectacular footage of 2500kg family caravan being towed up sky-high Vic High Country track
Queensland’s Sunseeker Caravans are the new king of the caravan mud-slingers, with a two and a half tonne Vision V16 hybrid family caravan from the Sunseeker stable towed by a Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series recently conquering some of the Victorian High Country’s toughest off-road tracks, including the very steep and spectacular Blue Rag Range Track near Mt Hotham.
Sunseeker Caravans’ boss Chris Michel has never been afraid of demonstrating the off-road limits of some his range of heavy-duty Aussie-built caravans, or getting them dirty, and his latest exploits involved dragging the 16ft VH16 pop-top up the very steep, narrow, gravelly, and often rutted Blue Rag Range Track to the sky-high peak — a tough ‘bucket list ‘challenge for any single vehicle, let alone a rig measuring close to 12 metres overall and with a combined weight of around five tonnes!
The slippery summit climb was part of an adventurous four-day trip through the Victorian High Country, with the Sunseeker boss setting off from a customer’s rural property in Mansfield before tackling a number of off-road challenges including boggy mud holes, river crossings and tracks blocked with fallen trees.
The pinnacle was reaching the top at the 1726m Blue Rag Trig point which on a fine day offers some of the best 360 degree views of the Victorian High Country. READ FULL ARTICLE OVER ON CARAVANANDCAMPINGSALES.COM.AU
