Students at Cal Poly Pomona have designed a cabin that Cavco Industries has built as a prototype and may become a rental at California state parks.
Called The Wedge, the cabin has a roofline with about a 90-degree angle, and incorporates Western red cedar siding, a composite porch deck and an ACX plywood interior for a modern look. The interior includes a built-in full-size bed, twin bunk beds and custom-built seating. The students designed the cabin at the invitation of the Parks Forward Commission, which is looking for ways to attract minorities and other non-traditional campers to California state parks. Cavco agreed to build a prototype of the The Wedge for display at the California State Fair.
Students designed more than 10 different cabins for the project, and at least one is expected to be placed in a state park to gauge public acceptance.
