3.5t coach built CW horsebox with living - REDUCED as new horse is now here! ???? DELIVERY CAN BE ARRANGED

Very very sad sale of our Barbara – a 2005 Vauxhall Movano, fitted with a CW horseboxes body in 2011. We have owned Barbara for the past 18 months and she’s taken us across the country, as far as Kent and Aberdeen, and never let us down. She’s fantastic on fuel, great to drive and has the benefit of a living area with double bed meaning stay-away shows are a breeze! We’ve just returned from five days at Arena UK where we stayed in the box the whole time. We absolutely love her, but our daughter is moving onto horses, and her new 17.1 won’t fit, so we need her to find a new home while we move into HGVs ☹️

Both a new roof and floor fitted two months ago, and has MOT until August 2024 with no advisories. We’ve spent loads on her since we’ve had her, so all the hard work has been done, ready for her new owners to put their own stamp on her. She does have some age and use related marks, and her price has been adjusted to reflect that.

Brace yourself for a long advert, as she has loads of features, but happy to answer any questions, too!
