It’s key to ensure that you are prepared for the conditions you can expect to experience on any overland or 4WD touring trip. Beyond the inclusion of a competent off-road vehicle, it is important to get the mix of equipment right, to ensure that you have adequate storage and organisational systems for all of your gear and equipment, which also abides by your vehicle’s load limits or maximum permitted weight of the vehicle. And remember this load weight is made up of the weight of the vehicle in addition to the load (fuel, occupants,and cargo).
