  1. AWD Touring - in soft sand - Keeping VSA on?

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Hey Gang, We drive in soft sand on our South Texas beaches. AWD has never let me down but wondered if I should turn off "Vehicle Stability Assist" VSA? If you're in South Texas every few weeks there is a beach cleanup project...
  2. sand driving?

    Off The Beaten Path
    I have a 2007 crv 4wd, has anyone taken this in the sand? planning on going camping, so I'm assuming the sand is slightly packed but probably not much.. Just need to get to camp site and get back. If I let some air out of my tires should I be good? thanks
  3. Off Road Questions (Sand)

    Off The Beaten Path
    Hello all, I just purchased a 05 CRV SE RT4WD, and have a few questions concerning off roading in sand (Beach). Now, I have done a ton of searching, reading and watching videos.

  6. Sand Dune Fun in the CRV

    Off The Beaten Path
    I took my family out to some large sand dunes in the CRV last weekend and we had an absolute blast. The dunes are located at Stockton Beach which is 2.5 hours north of Sydney. I’d say the dunes are roughly 20km long, 0.5 kms wide and up to 40-50 meters high in places. The dunes butt up against...
  7. Itachi-san in the sand?

    Off The Beaten Path
    I may crew for a balloon in the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta this fall (Oct 4-12) and might use Itachi-san as a crew support vehicle. Last time I did this (1988?) I used an 86 Isuzu Trooper that really would go almost anywhere. But that truck (named Suzi) was over qualified for...

  9. Protecting against Sand and Sun

    Hi from Cairo, I have bought a black CRV (RVVsi I think it is same as CRV EX). As I do not havr garage and here is sandy, I wonder what kind of protection that I can use to preserve my car painting. Preferably, I am looking for a simple solution that does not need to much work. I saw 5 Star...
