Rob & Carol's  HOMEPAGE

 

tOOls & Spares
for the patrol

   

It is a good idea to carry a range of tools & spares to suit both your specific vehicle & camper trailer when travelling to remote areas of Australia. Lives have been lost when a simple unexpected breakdown occurs & an easy fix could have been made if the right gear would have been included as a safety kit.

By having a little know how, a workshop manual for your vehicle & some tools & spares onboard, necessary repairs can be made to safely get you out of trouble & back on the road into the next town for expert repairs. You may not be able to fix the problem, but if you have the necessary tools & parts on hand someone may come along that could fix it for you.
