Construction of Opalite Caravans

Opalite is an International and local manufacturing company.

Through our experience over the years we have moved away from traditional methods of manufacturing and the problems associated with a traditional build. For example we have seen brand new caravans, not yet registered with the sides of the van laden with wood rot. This is an ever-increasing problem as more and more manufacturers cut corners to save on material and labour costs.

This is why we choose to construct our vans using strong lightweight composite building materials eliminating plywood in the construction and use a full aluminium insulated frame on a hot dipped fully galvanised chassis. Heavy duty chequerplate is used for front, rear and sides of the van.

All cabinetry used in an Opalite caravan is white powdercoated aluminium providing an easy clean surface.
