Getting Ready For An Off Road Camping

July 13, 2015

A camper trailer can be differentiated between an on-road and off-road. If you’re going for an on-road camping, you can just prepare for light weight storage. But if you’re planning to go for an off-road camping, then you should make sure that your trailer is ready for some heavy lifting and unsteady terrain.
Off road camper trailers are not always the same. They can differ with the terrain that you’re going to and for how much weight will you be carrying for the whole trip. That is why it can be very hard, not only for amateurs, but also for professionals to adjust a camper trailer that will suit the camping style.
Adjusting the foundation of your trailer
Off road camper trailers in Perth can be adjusted in many ways, here are some of the things that you should always check and adjust before going on a camping trip.
• Chassis – It is the overall foundation of your trailer because of its capability of strength. It can be built with rails of RHS 60X60X3, RHS 50X50X3 for its cross members, and RHS 75X50X3 for the A frame.
• A frame – For the maximum strength, the A frame should be positioned in both the front and back of the spring hangers.
• Suspension – This can either be a rubber sprung, leaf or coil. They have their own pros and cons, but you should make sure that you use the appropriate suspension for your travelling. Ask for an expert to help you when determining what type of suspension is right for you. You should know the total weight of your travel in order to know what you will use. A suspension that is too heavy or too soft will result to fatigue on your mechanism and tools and therefore could be broken while you’re travelling.
• Shock absorbers – It is one of the most critical parts of your integral suspension, especially when you’re going to travel on rough roads. The shock absorbers can help your coils or springs with the rebound of your trailer. Without the absorbers, your equipment and spring will rebound with the exact force of bounce, which will result to fatigue and damages.
• Axle weight – It can carry extra baggage, so you would need to reassess it every time you travel.
• Bearing size – Make sure that you do not overload your trailers or else it might collapse. You should always bring a set of spare wheel bearings and you should also know how to properly replace them.
• Galvanize and paint – This is also important because it can help your trailer get any rust from your travelling.
