Overlander is a leading manufacturer of specialist vehicles with an unrelenting drive to design and build a new standard of equestrian transport. The R160 has been designed from the ground up by their experienced team of engineers and technicians. After 5 years of R&D, with personal advice from industry experts, the R160 was created with the true professional in mind.
To ensure a smooth and quality drive, it is built on brand new Peugeot Boxer Platform Cabs. As different from a car and trailer, you can drive the R160 on a standard licence.
The R160 cab is equipped with air-conditioning, cruise control, dual passenger seat, DAB radio with USB input & AUX, steering wheel controls and extended wing mirrors for increased visibility and safety. With the safety of the horse at the forefront, there is an approved camera monitoring system for complete peace of mind. With a stepped-back bulkhead, the R160 has increased cabin space for storage and improved sound absorption which maximises comfort for passengers.
For the individual doors, it has been designed and installed as a dual operating spring loaded lock rod system for easy use and effortless exiting and entry to the groom’s area.
The R160 is equipped with a reinforced ramp door with commercial grade anti-slip stepped rubber matting for safe and secure loading and unloading.
The side doors have an incorporated window, positive locking mechanisms for secure close and also heavy-duty retainer holdbacks.
The body panels have a core of extremely high-density polyurethane with outside steel plate surface layers, as shown below. The panels, while offering a high tensile strength, are also energy efficient and age-resistant.
The R160 comes standard with a variety of modern lamps for style, visibility and safety.
The long stall design separates the horses by way of a full height slotted Divider Gate, Divider Door and two access Partition Doors, eliminating the need for a breast bar. The Gates and Doors have been specially designed and manufactured in-house for the R160. They are produced from a reinforced core with double skinned GRP. These components are durable, easy-clean, age-resistant and lightweight.
The Divider Gate is mounted, as standard, on a heavy-duty sliding mechanism with 3 adjustable locking positions. This simplicity allows for the gate to slide into positions to carry mares and foals, without needing more than one person to alter the stalls. The double shoot bolt ensures completely secure locking.
Our unique flex screed rubber flooring is a high strength cushioned, seamless and completely sealed rubber flooring system specially designed for horsebox use.
The R160 floor provides the comfort and strength of rubber matting in a fully seamless sealed bonded system. The flooring is long lasting and easily repaired. Our drain system ensures that the floor is correctly maintained and designed for longevity.
With 5 opening windows, skylight and dual intake and extraction ventilator, the stalls have optimum airflow and lighting. The ventilation system is Euro Tunnel Le Shuttle compliant and passes the required capacity regulations.
The rear groom’s area comes standard with two saddle racks and 2 bridle hooks. The seats can also be used for rest and relaxation.

Types of Finance
This is our most common form of finance package – this is where a minimum of 20% deposit is placed (the VAT) and the remainder of the value is spread over the finance term. Each monthly payment is fixed from the start, and at the end of the agreement you own the vehicle outright.
This funding option which can be taken up to 10 years.
A balloon option of up to 60% is also available. Balloons are based on the future residual value of the horsebox, it adds flexibility to the deal whereby you can upgrade your vehicle sooner than you were previously able to.
Business users can also claim 100% of interest offset again taxable profits and claim down yearly write-down allowances against the vehicle. As well as claiming back the VAT deposit.
The lease option is very similar to a hire purchase, with only two differences: 1 – the VAT does not need to be placed as deposit – so as little as 5% can be put down. 2 – at the end of the contract a title transfer payment must be made (typically charged at the fixed monthly rental). This is more flexible and VAT/Tax efficient, as each lease cost can be offset again pre tax profits, thus saving cira 20% per year for business users.
With the only difference being the VAT is spread across the term, rather than paid upfront. Thereby aiding cash flow.
Terms can be arranged up to 10 years with minimal deposit, and balloons of up to 60%.
