Camper Trailer Australia has a new field editor – Michael Borg.
Borgy’s one of those blokes who lives and breathes offroad adventure. He’s travelled to almost every extremity of the Australian continent, built 4WDs and camper trailers from the ground up and tackled some of the most epic adventures Australia has to offer.
Being a mechanic by trade, he’s customising both of his Toyota LandCruisers, ‘Toot’ the Troop Carrier and ‘Uncle Grump’, his big red 80 Series Cruiser. With a dirty big V8 turbodiesel donk, twin lockers, 35s and a full ute chop conversion, we get the impression Borgy likes his touring tough! How tough? Well, last year alone he conquered iconic destinations like Tassie’s infamous west coast, the High Country in full snow, the Frenchmans and old Tele Track up the Cape, plus a whole swag of low range tracks along the east coast.
With plenty of tough low range kays under his belt, you can bet your bottom dollar he’s learnt the art of bush mechanic fixes. In fact, Borgy reckons relaxing around the campfire after an epic day on the tracks is what 4WDing is all about, not to mention that feeling of freedom you get when you lock in the hubs!
