Ruby & the Camper Trailer on Fraser Island

Last year we went to Fraser Island for a week, to fully test out all of our gear and set-up before our big trip.  We had heard various things about if you should take a camper trailer to Fraser or not, but we decided to give it a go.  The trailer performed perfectly the whole way and we were very happy with how it went.  The only problem we encountered was when we were driving up the beach looking for a campsite and there was a large group of fishermen on one of the corners of the beach, we had to slow right down to avoid them and veer up into the soft sand up towards the dunes.  As we had lost momentum, we ended up getting bogged.  Luckily we didn't dig down too far, so we grabbed the two pairs of Max Trax off the roof and placed them under each wheel on Ruby.  After a couple of false starts, the Max Trax did exactly what they were supposed to and we were free.

See the video below.

It was definitely worth taking the trailer.  Below was our campsite.

And you just have to have a Dingo photo from Fraser Island.  This cheeky bugger was only about 10 meters from us, when the photo was taken.
