COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN
It is common for companies to use CAD as a drafting tool. OKANAGAN on the other hand, takes computerized technology far beyond the elementary applications. By utilizing the latest technologies available we are able to confirm the exact fit and location, minimize gimps, trims and other "cover up" techniques seen in other brands.
OKANAGAN also uses the computer for advanced testing. Before a new floorplan is approved for production, we know the approximate weights, including dry and loaded, front and rear axle weights and approximate hitch weights. After production these specifications are manully checked. Another important factor in computer generated data is we can forecast and avoid many problems caused by inappropriate stresses due to distribution of weight and fatigue on the frame.
Be sure to check out these and other hidden quality features to insure you long term pleasure and peace of mind.
All Travel Trailer and Fifth Wheel units utilizing metal undercarriage are welded by Canadian Welding Bureau Certified Welders.
LAMINATED FLOOR SYSTEM
OKANAGAN uses a one piece, full length laminated plywood floor which helps to eliminate squeeks and creeks, is warmer, stronger and lighter. Most of our competitors use a far less elaborate type of construction for their flooring system. OKANAGAN insists on providing you with the highest quality.
"KEMLITE" FIBERGLASS EXTERIOR PANELS
Kemlite is the exterior surface used on ULTRA LITES, ECLIPSES and TRUCK CAMPERS. They use UV-stabilized and acrylic modified polyester resins to manufacture their fibreglass reinforced RV siding panels. To this we vacuum laminate light weight Luan plywood, then pinch roll laminate this to the foam insulation and inside wall panels creating a strong, light, and well insulated wall.
"GOLD SHIELD" TRUE GEL COAT FIBERGLASS EXTERIOR
True gel coat fiberglass is the industry standard with boats, but not so with R.V's. Most "high line" fifth wheels continue to use F.R.P (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) for their exterior. OKANAGAN full size fifth wheels use only TRUE GEL COAT FIBERGLASS for the whole exterior, walls, skirts, front and rear caps are all marine quality gel coat fiberglass. Gel coat is much stronger, requires less maintenance, can be invisibly repaired, lasts longer, wont "yellow" over time and just looks a lot better than F.R.P., and increases resale value.
OKANAGAN 5th wheels and OKANAGAN "Ultimate Suite" Campers feature DOW Chemicals high density Styrofoam SM insulation, which retains the heat from the inside out. It's R rating is 40% greater than many of it's competitors.
