This Helios model is spacious design with a larger living area and two double beds (luton plus seating).
Based on the competent DAF LF 4.3 meter wheelbase chassis it retains an excellent turning circle, so is easy to drive. Through design, materials technology and innovation, we have manufactured the Helios to have the lowest load height possible. Throughout the whole range for added safety, this design feature eliminates sway and side wind rocking, giving greater stability and comfort for customer’s horses. Other benefits include increased internal height, now a massive 2.50 metres (8’ 3”) in the living and horse area and an extremely low stainless steel ramp at just 0.81 metres (32”) that is almost the full width of the horse area. This allows the largest of horses to load and turn more easily. Our exclusive curved roof system flows into the bespoke Helios luton pod making the horsebox aerodynamic with reduced wind noise, vibration and fuel consumption.
Did you know we also have an Aeos 4.5 tonne Weekender model with full living facilities and 1.5 tonnes of payload?
Looking to the future and to set the Helios range apart, each has an auxiliary battery system with solar charging, plus solar charging for the chassis batteries and the mains hook up has conditioner charging too. The horse area has an air extraction system and an integrated stainless steel safety cell with tubular stainless steel horse partitions and rear horse doors. We also include metallic paint, new upholstery throughout and bonded windows with smoked glass. Each is a totally bespoke build and backed up with our comprehensive two year warranty.
To drive the Helios 7.5 tonne horsebox you require a category C1 licence, or a category B (car) licence if passed before January 1st 1997. Fuel consumption is highly economical and with significant reduction in road noise and vibration it is extremely quiet. Equipped with anti-lock brakes and the lowest possible centre of gravity; the safety-conscious Helios horsebox is the perfect all-rounder.
