Hi, I'm considering buying an Oka, preferably a van/bus body to convert to a pop top camper and am unable to find the internal measurements of the standard bus/van body as it leaves the factory.
I've got brochures etc but they don't give any measurements or specs.
If any one can help with the internal floor length from front to back, width between the sides internally and the interior height it would be appreciated.
thanks
Peter

Rough internal measurements of the long bus body are 1850mm wide x 3650 long and I think from memory the height is 1540 mm if you need precise measurements let me know as I will be passing by the factory thursday and i can measure one of the bodies unless someone else can help before then.
cheers

I have just measured ours.
3660mm long x 1500mm high x 1760mm wide tapering to 1600mm wide near the roof.

Ours is a XT with a LT pop top camper.
I think the XT bodies are shorter by 300m from memory.

Thanks to everyone for the info, I actually got to look at an Oka for sale today, it is no 330 built 7/95 and is an LT but has a XT bus body with a one piece lift up tailgate which agrees with T & D's info as it is 3350 inside. It was originally a cab chassis and had the body fitted later by the factory. It seems in good condition despite the 400+k's but the asking price is a bit steep I think. What is a reasonable price for a 15 y/o Oka bus with 400k on it ? As I said it is in good condition and has been serviced reularly, private ownership and a few upgrades.

PJ, I have a picture of the one below which may be what you're looking at; I have it down as #330 but figured it wasn't really because of the XT bus body. Ordinarily you can tell XTs from LTs by the length of the last window - an XT would have a short fourth window like this, where an LT's are all the same size. But #330 is one of the exceptions (I've also seen the reverse, an XT with the longer body).



The short body does significantly lessen the leverage that rear-mounted spare has on the chassis and mountings; you don't ordinarily see a rear-mounted spare on the longer body for that reason.

Hal, that is it the same truck, has the little bins in front of the rear wheels and the long handled shovel on the tyre carrier. Also the one piece rear tailgate as in the picture. It has been cleaned up and detailed but still has that same ratchet strap across the spare on the back. Total respray i think as all the Oka stickers have gone and the black bits are all shiny ;-)))

PJ, we have just purchased a cab only OKA and in the process of rebuilding it. We were looking until about a month or so ago. Prices ranged from 34 to 47K. The k's were all around 4 -600k with not a real lot done to them. We looked at a couple decked out as campers, they were around 50K +. Have a look at #112 and youl see how much we need to do.
Hope this helps
