At Bloomfields we offer a 5 seat upgrade across our range from 3.5T – 5T. Available on the Fiat/Peugeot AL-KO chassis, not only are the seatbelts themselves approved, but the seatbelt anchorage points have also been strength tested, certified and type approved. Your V5 will state 5 seats from registration which is crucial as many retro fit 5 seat vehicles only state 3 seats on the V5 risking voiding your insurance in case of an accident. With many 5 seat horsboxes, the horse area is moved over the wheel arches, meaning either a shorter length in the horse area, or the horses have a large amount of wheel arch protruding next to their front legs.
However we have the option to state the wheel base of our AL-KO chassis, therefore we have the 5 seat chassis made at a 4.7m wheel base which vastly reduces the amount of wheel arch in the horse area and enables us to keep the stall lengths standard, because to us, your horses safety and comfort is always paramount and at the forefront of our engineering and designs. Contact Bloomfields Horseboxes for 5 Seat Upgrade enquiries.
The seat frame bolts securely to the chassis along with being tied into the double skinned bulkhead wall. Our bulkhead has been tested to 4 x ISO standards meaning you can be safe in the knowledge your passengers are safe in the unlikely event of an accident. The cab is fully trimmed and allows easy access to the luton for sleeping or storage, or if you prefer access to the luton from the horse area, this can also be catered for.
With the 5 seat upgrade the entire cabin seating is trimmed in luxury leatherette with Nappa leather or Pony upgrades available. The luxuriously lined Luton makes the 5 seat Luton perfect for a mattress and offers sleeping for up to 3 people in the cab. we also offer the option to have the bench seats lift into bunk beds!
