I read many good comments about the Anne Beadell highway here. What is the advice from those who have completed this track for someone who wants to tow a camper trailer (Jayco Swan Outback). Has anyone towed similar??

Leave the camper trailer at home, the corrugations will kill it.

Thanks for your comment. I hear that if you drop your tyre pressures and drive to the conditions should be all good??

We did the Anne Beadell 5 years ago and took an Ultimate Camper through, no problems.
However there are two Jayco's similar to the one you are considering taking abandoned and wrecked neat the SA border, proberley best to not take it.

We have done the Anne Beadell Hwy several times over a period of 20 years. Each time the corrugations got worse and worse. We always did it in a land cruiser towing an Ultimate camper (we owned two over the years and half a dozen LC's). It is a great drive but I would be wary doing it in anything other than in a purpose built Australian camper. Fortunately, we have never had any serious or major breakdowns and only three punctures over 45 years but I sure have spent a lot of time helping and fixing other people; because they were usually expecting too much from their gear and going the SG term; "too hard". You often hear the term driving to conditions but 5 km per hour 1400 kilometres might get a bit tedious!

We did it with a 100 series Landcruiser towing and a Trak trailer. Jayco might make it if you are prepared to go slow, and roll in and out of the wave like corrugations. I mean very slow. We had one day where we only covered 80klm, from morning to night. I would like to spend 3 weeks in there next time. The flora and fauna are spectacular, particularly the reptiles. If you are in any doubt, go with the tent only. Water and fuel are the challenges. Checked it out for possible Bushtracker access. Too much hard work, plus you would need to trim some bushy areas as you went.
