Johan, welcome to the forum.
Where is the R303?
From where and to where will you be towing?

I have not driven the R303 (north of Op-die-Berg) for a number of years. It used to be 40 - 50 km reasonably okay tar road north of Op-die-Berg. But the next (roughly) 20 km was a gravel road over the mountain pass which I will surely not consider when towing a conventional caravan. I doubt it whether the last part is tar road by now, but it maybe.

We were there- at Klondyke Cherry farm right on top of the mountain about a year ago and wanted to travel that way but was advised that the last part on the Citrusdal side was a no-go for caravans.  I got the impression that that was the normal condition of the road. Perhaps someone has more recent info.

Johan, do supply info on your vehicles on your profile- it makes it so much easier to advise if you have that information.  Same goes for other members.

Ons het hierdie pad in September 2017 gery maar sonder die karavaan. Eerste ongeveer 80km is teerpad en mens kan daar wa sleep.
Die laaste ongeveer 30km is grondpad oor die berg. Dis by plekke redelik styl en ek sou nie sommer met 'n wa daar oorgaan as ek 'n ander keuse het nie.
Toe ons dit gery het was die grondpad nie sleg nie. Het wel gereën met digte mis wat dit so effe van 'n riller gemaak het toe die donker ons inhaal op die berg.
As ek moet kies, sleep ek eerder die N7.

Ek sien nou jy sleep met Fortuner D4D en Explorer.
Die kombinasie sal dit maak oor die berg se grondpad.
Dis mos waarvoor die Explorer gemaak is.
Soos Chris geskryf het, sal ek ook nie met 'n konvensionele karavaan daar oor nie.
