I went to Rolex this year and was really intrigued by the horse vans they had on display, like this one:
My question is: has anyone ever built one? It doesn't seem like it would be horrible. There are box trucks like this one that are tall enough and wide enough.
I mean, they're meant to carry a lot of weight. They're pretty short (I drive a large pickup) compared to most truck/trailer rigs, and I would think the steering is a ton better. Plus the trailer isn't going to fall off (cause there isn't a trailer... ). My main concern would be center of gravity. If the ponies lean too hard around corners or whatever, will that make a difference?
Yes, the floors might need to be changed out, and perhaps some reinforcing steel on the walls, but that's minor. It ought to be simple enough to weld a chest/butt bar/divider thing too.
