Equine Motorcoach™ was born at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in May 2006. Carolyn Stinnett and Julie Calzone made their second trip to the Royal Windsor Horse Show that is held on the grounds of Queen Elizabeth’s Windsor Castle. Little did they know that their shared love of England and horses would create a one of a kind product for the United States.
The women first saw a Lehel Horse Box and thanks to Carolyn who was paying attention to the opportunity in front of them, a phone call to her husband, Tom Stinnett, started a dream that is now a reality.
The trio combined their expertise in the RV and horse industry with a high quality European product that was refined by Lehel Coach Builders in England as the first generation Equine Motorcoach™. Tom and Carolyn own Stinnett RV, one of the nation’s largest independent RV dealers. Tom is the Co-Chair of the GoRVing national promotional campaign and he sits on the Board of Directors of the RVDA, the United States’ RV dealers association.
Julie Calzone owns a national advertising and public relations firm, Calzone & Associates. She competes and breeds dressage horses and hunter/jumpers. Equine Motorcoach is the one of a kind all-in-one RV and horse transport company. The all-in-one RV and horse transport features two, three, four, five and six-horse configurations with fully loaded amenities on the interior and exterior. The interior has a spacious full bath, complete kitchen and multiple sleeping accommodations. The horse transport area has air ride suspension and a slant load configuration to provide our horses with the best possible ride. The Equine Carriage™ ST is part of the tow vehicle and transport line that the company is growing. The tow vehicle is built on a Freightliner M2 106 350 HP Cummins with an Allison automatic transmission. The interior features a full shower, bath and kitchen area along with ample living and a high-end entertainment system. Stay tuned for more exciting news from Equine Motorcoach as the company is manufacturing Equine Carriage horse trailers that include room for a car and storage that can be towed by the Equine RV.
