Strong and lightweight
The all steel hot dip galvanised chassis is engineered with strength in mind. When coupled with an all aluminium caravan frame of 45x45x3mm and 50x25x3mm ensures it meets the rigours of our road conditions. The engineering of Opalite caravans is above and beyond the typical expectation for a trailer of this size.
Using aluminium composite panels in the construction reduces the weight considerably without reducing the strength. Therefore you may not need the added expense of upgrading your tow vehicle.
TIG welded and bolted
The heavy duty caravan frame is fully TIG welded, powder coated and then bolted to provide that extra durability. The RHS tube is 3mm wall with section sizes of 50x25mm and 45x45mm. Bolts are used instead of rivets for extra strength.
Drop down stabilisers
There are drop down stabilisers on each corner of the caravan for stability.
Modern gloss finish
Caravan designs are evolving into highly functional, easy to clean, long lasting and hard wearing surfaces of aluminium, composites, alloy and stainless steel. The bright white aluminium paneling gives a smooth gloss finish that will look great for the life of the caravan.
Aluminium composite paneling
ACP (Aluminum composite paneling) provides a tough, smooth exterior. High density closed cell urethane foam insulation panels covered in designer material colours are use to infill between the structural beams of the caravan.
Lights and wiring
All of the lights inside and out are LEDs.
Designed for Australian road conditions and touring so that you can be confident when you leave your driveway and head off on holidays that your caravan will tow reliably.
