I'm interested to know how many people take their tregs offroad? If it turns out there are a few of us perhaps a visit to an off road centre is in order...

I`d be up for it, I`ve never been off road in mine but I`m sure it would help justify buying a Luxury mud plugger!

I use low ratio to pull the caravan out of the garden and live in a lane that isn't made-up. Does this count ?


The forestry commission used to run an off road tour over part of Cannock Chase once a month for moderate off roading experience. (There are also the more extreme events for those who don't mind doing the repairs afterwards).

Just rung about Cannock Chase, the next one is in September starts at 9.30 and costs.....?35.

Rangers lead and trail in landies or such like, you drive your own car.

No Damage is envisaged during the 'experiance'... i'm getting the date emailed to me.

Anybody interested? Could combine with a myTreg.com meeting i.e brew and bacon sarnie and there may be scope for a discount if enough of us go.

If there are enough takers we may be able to get our own 4x4 day!?

September 6th - I'll be towing my caravan through the Alps, but could be interested in other dates. My own insurance does not cover "off road" use (ha ha - considering it's a 4x4 !) so would be looking to take out some additional cover. - any ideas from members ?

Sounds like the potential for a good meet .

Use the Treg to tow my Bowler racer to and from events and also to recover it from the muddy holes I always seem to break down in!!

Bit nerve wracking being towed back behind your own car with no brake servo or power steering!! :shock:

I have a Fourtrak I use for offroading and knowing what happens there is NO WAY the Treg is going to a "Pay N Play" site or Green Laning. The most offroad it will do is towing a horse trailer in and out of a field and maybe some snow action if we have a bad winter.

This is the problem. They are too expensive to scratch or damage.

I went to watch a local off road clubs RTV a while back that was held in a quarry and whilst I didn't take part in the event itself, following the action around the site involved off roading including a couple of rather steep climbs up a loose gravel track. And all on standard road tires. Car never missed a beat








I do a bit of light off roading in the Treg in work but that's mostly driving across playing fields and forest tracks.

I would love the chance to drive across a forest track. Where I live everything is gated/sealed off or private land. It would be hard to even get in a field. I don't live in a City either.

Why not take your car on a Land Rover Experience "bring your own 4x4 day"?
They do them every now and then at Eastnor.
I'm doing one in June.

Don't know if this counts, but I live off road. 3 miles of unpaved gravel up a mountain and a 30 degree driveway. Winter by -60F and summer by 85F. If I get stuck I have my siberian huskies. I also pull a 7,200 pound trailer to go fishing.
