How far can I go....
South in Africa can I go with a Transit van and twin axle caravan, I've been reading with great interest that its tarred all the way to/into Nigeria, whats it like after that, my route is going to be direct to SA so I wont be doing anything touristy, thinking of carrying around 6 Jerry cans for diesel and say 50 liters of water, topping up as I go.
The transit van is a rear wheel tye and loads of grund clearance as it is of the 350 version, not long wheel base, tyres at present are 215 but I think if need be I could push on 230s with a squeeze, I guess having wider tyres on the caravan would be ideal too, reason why Im keen on taking caravan as far as I can go is that I will have my two big dogs with me so it will be ideal for space and use, I'll shortly be working out my trip in detail as Im not able to locate Chris Scotts book so will have to dig further for info. Anyone else interested in joining me is welcome as I lived in SA 99% of my life doing all sorts in all places but with a van and caravan is a new challenge to me......
Your input would be appreciated
