New beautiful 13.5T delivered to the Smithson family

The latest Whittaker  Legacy Mounted upon a Mercedes Atego 4.8L 13.5 Ton  supplied by the  Smithson family,    The Whittaker body was bespoke build to suit all the needs  of the family , as they previously owned a 7.5T they wanted to upgrade but didn’t want to go to large so this beautiful 4  horse with no slide out sleeping 6 people was built including everything you could ever want or need in a horsebox, and all within budget.



I have just taken delivery of a gleaming new Whittaker Legacy 4 horse plus luxury living horsebox. Not only was this box built on time, it was built within budget and with a workforce of staff who are absolutely passionate about the build quality and the Whittaker name.


It took just 12 weeks from supply of chassis to completion and during this time, the specification was altered and many things changed to suit our exact requirement and we are over the moon with the finished product. Every member of staff at Whittakers was involved in the build and when it came to a new concept of layout, they were all excited and shared their many years of experience to achieve what seemed impossible to start with.


Our build was slightly different with an “L” shaped Kitchen area and end living but it works fantastic and gives nearly as much room as if it had a slide out.  This coupled with a large bathroom, double bunk above and adequate storage throughout really demonstrated what can be achieved with a mid-weight lorry (13.5 tons GVW)  The horse area take 4 large horses and with the added rear grooms door, single pole partitions and on board water / feed trough, let alone all the roof ventilation – it  is great for the long journeys as well as keeping the horses on board at a day show.


A real credit to Jayne and her team for delivering such an enjoyable experience. Keep up the good work Whittakers.
