Equine RVs, part 3: Champion trainer Ted Turner, Jr.


TedTurnerJr-HorseTrainerFor a little more luxury and comfort, especially for those who spend long stretches at horse events, Featherlite offers a custom Legend Edition 8582 living quarters trailer.

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.
