Equine Motorcoach™ Engages U. S. Based Merhow Industries To Help Create State of the Art Horse Transport
 
(Louisville, Ky.) – Equine Motorcoach™ selected Merhow Industries, the oldest horse trailer manufacturer in the United States, to create the state of the art horse transport area for its 2012 model.
 
The 2012 Equine Motorcoach™ will showcase at the RVIA Industry Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky, November 28-December 1. In total, the National RV Trade Show will feature 307 companies displaying the latest RVs and related products across more than 730,000 square feet of exhibit space.
 
The all-in-one motorized RV and horse transport 2012 U.S. version features a four-horse configuration with fully loaded amenities on the interior and exterior. The interior has a spacious full bath, complete kitchen and multiple sleeping accommodations. The horse transport area has air ride suspension and European slant load configuration to provide horses the best possible ride.
 
Equine Motorcoach™ recently moved its manufacturing facility from the Europe to the United States where manufacturing of the first units is already underway. Equine Motorcoach™ is the only company in North America that manufactures an all-in-one RV and horse transport vehicle. The vehicle is modeled after the popular mode of horse transport in Europe.
 
Renegade Custom Coaches, Kibbi LLC and Equine Motorcoach LLC signed an exclusive agreement to manufacture the widely-known Equine Motorcoach™. The four-year old brand has achieved so much name recognition in North America that the partners in Equine Motorcoach LLC decided to move manufacturing to the U.S. after building a relationship with Renegade Custom Coaches and Kibbi LLC that included extensive engineering and design upgrades.
 
“We chose Merhow Industries for the horse transport interior because of their commitment to produce the same high quality manufacturing that is important to the horsemen and horsewomen who are serious about transporting horses,” said Tom Stinnett, principal and national dealer for Equine Motorcoach™. “They are a great match for what we do and what we are known for in the horse industry.”
 
“We are known for building a better overall horse trailer that features top quality safety, fit and finish,” said Dave Elchert, president of Merhow Industries. “We do not just say we build the best horse trailer interior, we back it up. We are very excited about the work of art we created for Equine Motorcoach™.”
 
Features and Benefits of the Horse Transport Interior
 
Merhow designs horse trailer interiors that fit a vast majority of horse breeds. Drop down windows provide maximum ventilation and all slant load interiors feature 32” x 26” extruded aluminum drop down feed doors with center latches and independent face guards.
 
Large sliding glass windows behind each horse stall provide plenty of light and ventilation.
 
Construction
 
The interior horse transport area is bright, open and insulated. Closed cell foam insulation in the stall walls and ceiling keep horses cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Stalls are covered with a white baked enamel interior liner that covers the full height of the walls. Using an aluminum interior liner provides maximum corrosion protection and makes the stall area smoother, quieter, easier to clean, and safer for horses.
 
To provide maximum equine protection and to keep the horse transport interior looking sharp, the stall walls are lined with rubber up to 48”. Thick molded rubber mats provide extra comfort for horses and are easily removable to facilitate interior cleaning.
 
Safety
 
The horse interior comes standard with the maximum combination of protection and control for horses and their handlers. Use of heavy-duty padding and slam latches are on all dividers in slant load interiors.
 
All dividers are made from tubular aluminum, which is lighter in weight and cannot rust.
 
Open grillwork on head and shoulder dividers makes interiors appear more spacious and increases ventilation for horses.
 
Versatility
 
The horse transport interior should be as useful as possible: therefore, the interiors feature removable dividers.
 
Side mangers are constructed from heavy-duty aluminum sheets, feature a drain, and storage below the manger tray. Access below the manger tray is provided through large extruded aluminum baggage doors for greater storage and versatility.
