Nayela – Okapi.
Arguably one of the most talked-about new caravans to be launched this year is the Okapi by Nayela.
This is the first caravan to be built by Nayela, who are actually a manufacturer of multi-purpose trailvans for horses, quadbikes, motorcycles, etc.
The Okapi is an innovative design from top to bottom, front to back. The first aspects you’ll notice on this new caravan is the aerodynamic nose, the double axle, the lift-up roof, and the high departure angle at the back. These interesting designs are continued on the luxurious interior, where the front area consists of a half-circle of seating, an island bed on a slide-out in the middle, and a bathroom at the back.
The Okapi is constructed from a fibreglass mono-hull body (meaning it’s one piece that comes from a mould), and fibreglass underside on an Al-Ko chassis. Most of the interior is also moulded shapes.
Nayela says they decided on a double axle caravan not due to the weight of the caravan, but because of the safety aspects as well as the condition of the roads in South Africa.
