Default Okanagan

Okanagan Campervan -
This is my second. 1982. My first was a 1984. Both Dodge. I have see two others in 30000km of driving. One was on a ford frame the other another Dodge.

What makes this van so great is that upper bunk can sleep an adult male and a small female so the useable space is very "RV like". It has a 2 burner stove, an oven, three way fridge, 16000btu heater. I have installed a fantastic fan (essential) and a 1000w inverter.

Built in British Columbia. I have some documentation that I am trying to remember where I put it...

For being 30 years old, your new home looks outstanding. The quality of the construction is excellent, or it wouldn't have lasted this long - not to mention the TLC of previous owners. If you get a chance, how about posting pixs of the inside, know it is as well maintained as the outside. Congrats, Ron.

This style is almost identical to the 1991 Airstream we almost bought. It also looks like a number of "Bigfoot" brand rigs that I've researched as well. This might not be the right thread for this but one wonders why there was such a consistency between companies back then. (But, I guess one could ask why there is such a consistency between all the current Sprinter Class B's as well.) Still the "catcher's mit" design like this one seems a bit lacking in aerodynamics. (We found the Airstream difficult to drive.) Not that I don't respect the van a lot--they all seemed better built back then--at least to me they did. As I said, we might have bought the Airstream had it not been for the number of things broken in the camper part of it. (The engine sounded real good--and purportedly had only 22K miles on it.

Hi Honkytime,

Did you manage to dig up any documentation for you Okanagan Dodge Camper Van? I just purchased a 1990 but it did not come with any user guides or documentation (other than the standard dodge van owners manual). I tried contacting the manufacturer but no luck so far.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Default Okanagan

Just purchased a 2000 on a Dodge 3500 with 181000 KM, well used insides but it was reflected in the price. I had an '80 about 27 years ago and this one is similar but with a tub/shower area.
Found some newer ones as well, up to a 2009 Okanagan for sale on Vancouver Island, but I didn't want to shell out about $30K but it looked in MINT condition.
Looking forward to getting some use. Love this design for it's high roof as I'm 6'3" and love the upper LONG and WIDE bunk to sleep in.
See you on the road. Even in Western Canada these are getting very rare to see on the road.
