Offroad 4WD Training and Tours is conducting a Camper Trailer Towing Course combined with the Introduction to 4WD course every third Sunday month in 2024.

This will be a full-on day of learning about what you and your 4WD can do together, so we plan to kick off at 8:00 am at our training venue.

The dates we have allocated in 2024 are:

  • 21 January
  • 18 February
  • 17 March
  • 19 May
  • 21 July
  • 20 October
  • 17 November
  • 15 December

Courses are subject to numbers. If you enrol in a course and we find that we have insufficient participants to conduct the course we will contact you to determine your next suitable course date.

We conduct out courses at our private training facility at a property within 90 minutes of the Brisbane CBD, where you can be assured that you will never be interrupted by other 4WD owners. You will be provided with full course information (including where to meet one of your trainers on the morning of your course) after you enrol in a course. One word of warning, as we will have a big day ahead of us, we will be meeting at 7:30 am SHARP.

We will cover the skills that all good 4WD drivers need to learn to tow their camper trailer in offroad conditions. Initially, we will be having a chat over a coffee and biscuits about 4WD vehicles and the different styles of camper trailer available, as there are some basic concepts that need to covered so that we ensure everyone’s safety. After that, we will spent the rest of the day learning and practicing new skills with our 4WD vehicles and trailers. You will soon learn what you and your 4WD vehicle can achieve!

Some of what we will cover:

  • What is a 4 Wheel Drive?
  • Tyre Pressures
  • The Principles of 4 Wheel Driving
  • The 4 O’clock Track
  • Driving in Different Terrains
  • Wheel placement
  • General 4WD Techniques
  • Hill Ascents, Descents
  • Vehicle and trailer inspection
  • Travelling with other 4WDs

We plan to be finished by around 3:00 pm, so there will be plenty of time for you to drive home after the day’s activities.

The course will cost you $180.00 for the first driver and $70.00 for any other participating drivers in the same car. This will cover any printed materials, morning tea and a light lunch.

A friend or your family is more than welcome to come with you. The only condition is that when you are attempting some skills for the first time, we would prefer that you were the only person in the vehicle. This will allow you to concentrate on the task at hand. If you will have any other people or kids in the car, the meal option is available to them as well. We ask for $15.00 per person to cover the cost of the morning tea and lunch meal.

More detailed information about the meals options can be found as you enrol on the enrolment page
