Awesome long wheelbase oka's! too bad it would cost so much to get them to Australia plus compliance over here... How much are they asking?

Look like old Landrover doors. I am sure they have done a great job but looking closely at the pictures they may not be as snappy as they appear from a distance. The Long wheelbase opens up a lot of motorhome options and although normal OKA's are pretty good the ride would be outstanding.

Hope they find a buyer as Covid must have wrecked their business.

Yes the extended body would be great for motorhome, depending on price and shipping it could still be worth bringing over for the right buyer.
I can recall something about they were first used in the Middle East then taken to Africa.

If you have a cab/chassis it is not a huge job to stick a blue-plated metre or whatever in the rails, new tail shaft and extend brake lines etc. Certainly a fraction of the cost of shipping an unknown vehicle from South Africa.

You would lose the OKA's excellent turning circle but not drastically.

Are there any long ones already in Australia?

Hi Lang,
Yes I agree if you already had a cab/chassis then extending is relatively easy I in fact extended my chassis by about 500 and David in S.A. extended his so as to get an auto in but not sure the length but about the same.
If you dont have an oka already and depending on price so lets say they want $20,000 and $10,000 to ship when there isnt much if any for sale close to $30,000 then it can be worth it.
