Explorer Horsebox

Equi-Trek Explorer horsebox

The Explorer is designed for the professional competitor. Built on a brand new DAF LF 55 Euro 6 chassis, the Explorer is without doubt one of the most stylish horseboxes available.

The contemporary, modern styling blends seamlessly with the DAF cab and chassis to produce an aerodynamic shape that aids fuel efficiency and is visually stunning.

In the Explorer range there is a model to suit the varying needs of professional equestrians. From the ‘Transporter’ for those who require a dependable, comfortable mode of travel for a large number of horses, through to the serious competitor who in addition requires spacious, luxury living accommodation for extended periods away from home.

The Explorer can even offer an optional separate guest room which provides a private retreat for family, friends or grooms. Fitted with a large, comfortable seating area which converts into a double bed, along with a table, wardrobe and fitted cupboards.

Choose from a wide variety of options and extras available on top of the substantial list of standard features to make your Explorer a truly outstanding and unique horsebox. The Explorer is available in a variety of specifications to suit your individual requirements: from the ‘Transporter’ to the ‘Excel’or the luxurious ‘Elite’
