Welcome to iRV2 .

Unfortunately because Okanagan was one of the Canadian RV manufacturers that failed during the 2008 economic down turn , information is particularly hard to come by .
As a manufacturer they had a very good reputation and their RVs were well built ; but ; that made them heavy compared to other campers of the same size .
I'm waiting on a reply about RVs built in Oliver BC , from a friend who worked for both Vanguard in Winfield and Frontier in Westbank , when he gets back to me I ask if he has any ideas where the info might be available .

Laj, I am wondering about LW. The base that sits in the truck is 7ft then the overhang above the cab is 3ft.

Thank you Skip 246 for the info and I would greatly appreciate any info you acquire in the future.

I will assume either a 9.5, or 10 ft. Your LW should be between 2700-3000 lbs.

The only way to know for sure is weigh it.

Unfortunately, I've been unable to come up with any concrete numbers .
I'd have to agree with weighing the camper may be the only way to be certain.
Weights posted with ads of units for sale , give the weights with added items ; like solar panels , water , propane @ 3,111 #.
Another for a 9'6" at 1288KG dry (= 2733 #)

If you're looking for a truck to carry one of these , you'll need one with payload in the 3,700#+ Range

Erica 10 ; Truck campers are measured from the point where the unit touches the front of the P/U box , to the very back of the unit .
Your 7' in the box confuses me somewhat , can you post a measurement as I've described or side on pictures of the RV .
