    Post Subaru Towing Vehicle in kgalagadi

    Hi all,
    I need some advice regarding the road and Towing in Kgalagadi TP.
    We are planning a camping trip in Aug or Sept 2020.
    The Towing Vehicle is a Subaru Forester 2.0 AWD and we will be Towing a Afrispoor Monoose off road trailer. GVM 1495kg
    We will be travelling on the "main" roads. Twee Rivieren - Mata Mata - Nossob - Twee Rivieren.
    Will the Subaru be OK to pull on the roads. My main concern is the soft loose sand in some areas.
    What tyre pressures should be used for the Towing vehicle and trailer?

    All advice will be appreciated.
    Regards,
    Stanley

    Yes you will be totally fine. Go down to about 1.6 for the tow car (or even 1.4 front, 1.6 back) and 1.2 for the caravan (depending on the load).

    There are hardly any gradients on the main roads so no issues with the Forester at all.

    Enjoy!

    Agree with Kurt

    Just be aware the roads are corrugated and you will need to be slow in some sections. Take this into account for your travel times and make sure everything is secure.
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.
