Can be viewed in either Gloucestershire (Near to Cirencester, Oxford and Swindon) or Guildford
2004 DAF LF 150 with automatic Allison gear box and uprated exhaust (LEZ compliant but requires certificate)
This is an ex council recycling vehicle and is extremely low mileage at 80,000km (75k of these as a horsebox). Travels all over the country and is a pleasure to drive.
MOT in April for the start of the season, but happy to put through early if important to buyer
Lorry has full overnight living, Eberspaecher heater, tv, fridge, hot water, toilet shower and hob. Everything works and has been used regularly. The windows have been upgraded to double glazed caravan ones so open wider and have built in blinds and insect nets, so you can open the windows at night and not go to bed with lots of insects and moths in your lorry!
The shower has a custom aluminium tray to allow drainage no matter what angle you park at.
This lorry has had every extra on it mechanically, it even has safety rims so controlling a blowout was easy.
Huge tack locker which fits Australian and western saddles, these are also not where the horses stand.
Horse area is aluminium planks with plenty of storage racks and cctv. This has PRB partitions with the nylon gas strut so are easy to use and don’t rattle. The loading gates are aluminium and slope, so they don’t blow in the wind and its really easy to unload quickly (I love them!)
Lorry weighs approx. 6.3t with tack, re-enactment gear, electric fencing, generator, coats, rugs, lots of human drinks, wheelbarrow, full fuel (123kg) and water (100kg). If I took everything out including partitions, bed, cushions and emptied the tanks, I could give you a much more impressive payload ticket, but I don’t think this is realistic!
Has super thick rubber flooring (had to be loaded by forklift) for a vandal horse who would paw for the length of a journey and destroyed thinner matting. Kraiberg ramp matting, which is beautiful but heavy. Could easily make this lorry lighter if weight is important, I did look at Equimats which are ideal, but never got around to doing anything as I never carry more than 2.
Currently sleeps 3, could easily be adapted for more, but I never required this
It has a basic design so no oakley wow factor, but if you want a practical lorry that is super easy to drive, mechanically very sound and a nice clean chassis then this is ideal.
