Horse Trailer/RV combo

Is there such a thing as a 2 or 3 horse trailer that also serves as an RV for a small family? I thought there was but cannot seem to find any. Maybe I am not using the correct terminology...

There are trailers with living quarters, but those are pull behind models. They don't have engines or drive trains.

There are also horse vans but I don't know how many, if any, of them have living quarters.

Unless the "toyhaulers" are somehow adaptable, I don't think so-like SR said-just trailers with living quarters.

I've seen RV's pulling bumper pulls, and I've seen goosnecks that have living quarters. But never a combo.

Something along these lines is maybe the best fitting -

I'm sure that I have seen horse trailer/RV type combo things.. but I can't remember where. (in an RV magazine, I think) They were Uber fancy and probably cost as much as a house.
A living quarters trailer or an RV capable of pulling a bp trailer might be more reasonable.

Apparently this is a motorhome/horse trailer. You want to drive that?? =)

Do a search for 'horse motorhome'. I think you'll find my last post accurate. ;)

A pull behind trailer with living quarters costs as much as a house ($90,000-$150,000), so I can't imagine what those behemoths would cost.

Even older horse vans without living quarters aren't cheap. Which is why I have a truck and trailer, and not a horse van!

There are quite a few models available. They are quite expensive and are more commonly seen in Europe than in the US. This site is European, although similar businesses are found here, too. You can often find reasonable used ones (reasonable being relative), but remember, you are buying a motor too. So, if you buy a lemon...it is a BIG lemon.

That's what I'd be worried about too, Allison.

If you have a pull behind trailer, you can borrow/rent a truck if yours is in the shop, but you're kind of stuck if your all in one rig is having engine trouble.

Slightly off track, but this is hysterical! It was one or 2 pics behind the horse one...

The first one actually looked very much like the "toy haulers" we have here in the US for ATV's etc. But yeah-pretty pricey and limiting. You take your horses in your all-in-one RV-can you still park at Walmart and shop? Lol
You want to go sightseeing or something you take the whole crew? Sounds pretty impractical to me.
