Dalhousie Springs, we had damper twirled on sticks and cooked on the fire. Yum

We were very happy with how the trailer went, and loved having the Roof Top Tent on it now.

Hi Aaron, the 200 had ATR's on, but mine were Cooper STT's which were perfect for this trip, where people normally say they are no good in sand.

Cheers
