All Wheel Drive full size SUV

All Wheel Drive full size SUV

Any and all help greatly appreciated!

Staying at house on 4X4 beach in two weeks. Is it possible to drive an all wheel drive full size SUV from the paved road to the house only? Not driving on beach, only to the house, park it, and drive out a week later.

The beach IS the road past Corolla. Check out the video on how to drive on the beach at the National Park sore. (You don't need a permit to drive on northern beaches)

Be certain to service your SUV upon your return.

I was expecting you would get more response by now.


How much ground clearance does your vehicle have? If there isn't enough clearance, you will get stuck. Post on obxconnection.com and share specific make and model of SUV, you will get honest feedback from folks who drive up there all the time.

Really, the land of the angry property owners is the way to go?

Also ask your rental company. Check out beach driving videos on twiddy.com

Google "driving on Carova beach" videos.

You will find helpful hints.

I was going to tell you the same thing. Take some air out of your tires. Even though you have a 4 wheel drive you may experience problems in the sand once you turn off the beach road to go over the dune to your house.
