To Norm, I have one of your galvanized hitches on my Jayco camper van and have now done around 22 thousand km on our around Aussie trip. It’s been a breeze using it. I had a bloke in Kununnura who was leaving for the Gibb River the next day and wanted one immediately offer me $500 and his old hitch for me to swap with him he was so impressed. Anyway I gave him your info I’m sure you will hear from him. Do I get commission? :)
Most of us have to drive through access gates at some point in our driving careers. Sometimes they are a bit hidden as in this experience. Which also brings up offroad safety and outback travel, and the amount of things that could go wrong. Even worse if you are towing because pulling up takes longer and your offroad trailer could push you around. There are so many things to be aware of all the time. including towing safety.
We have had numerous incidents with gates swinging in the wind and hitting vehicles. This guy caught a gate that was probably hidden by the tree line as he rounded the corner. Share the following pictures as you see fit. Look at all three pictures to see how lucky this guy really was.
I bet the first thing the driver checked was to see if Mr. Wiggles and his two neighbours were still in town…
