The Equi-Trek Sonic is easy to drive and due to it's maximum weight of 3500kg can be driven on a standard car licence, it is has no living area but there is a tack/changing room separate from the horses which incorporates 2 saddle racks, 2 bridle racks and 2 coat hooks and there is additional storage space above the cab.

The 4.5 tonne Equi-Trek Victory has a lockable external tack locker which is complete with a light and includes 2 bridle racks and 2 saddle racks. The living area is totally separate from the horse area with a lockable door with opening window. It incorporates comfortable seating that converts into either a double bed or two bunks. There is a nice kitchen which comes complete with gas hob, sink, table and cupboards. There is also a toilet compartment which contains a toilet, coat hooks and a mirror.
