World championship halter trainer Ted Turner, Jr., uses his Legend Edition for personal comfort and to safely transport his horses to equine trainings and competitions around the country.
“It has a lot of room,” says Turner on a Featherlite video. “We live in our trailer on the road. We stay near our horses. If you ever had to use a motel all the time, it gets to be a real pain.”
The 8-foot wide Model 8582 floorplans range from 4- to 25-foot length interiors. The 12-feet-and-longer models offer optional slideouts that expand the living space.
“As for the horse trailer part,” says Turner, who has been training horses for more than 40 years, “I like a ramp in the back so when horses come out of the trailer they don’t have to make a big step down. It makes it easier to get in and out of the trailer.”
Some of the horse-end options include a rooftop hay pod, s-drop closure, manger package, heavy-duty square cornered, street-side drop down feed doors, and a side unload door. Also available are pop-up roof vents for each horse, two-inch thick stall pads, and LED dome light in horse and tack areas.
In the fourth and final post on Equine RVs we get a look at the impressive all-in-one Recreation Vehicle and horse transport by Equine Motorcoach out of Louisville, Ky.
