I was sent this photo's from I beleive the owner or from someone with from Scania.

It is a 2005 Norwegian Scania P340 6x2 with Oakley conversioin for living and horse-transport.

Now don't get me wrong I love my conversion, but it is a box on a semi.

What these guys are doing is pure art! I love how seamless they integrated this conversion. And the interior is incredible.

I also love this truck. If these guys where in the U.S. I would be checking out one of these rigs in a minute.





You can check out more photos in the gallery

While cab over production has almost ceased in the US, it is the only viable means in Europe. European truck makers have made great strides in airodynamics as well as power train, ride, etc. of course. Those "ponies" are riding in comfort!

......don't miss understand me -I love animals-.....but I don't want to live that close to horses 'specially down wind.....If I woke up in the AM and smelled fresh horse sh*t I'd puke in my bed.....there is just a few things I can't handle in my old age....one being the fresh smell of horse sh*t.....The smell of a rotton human body is another-I buy VICKS by the BOX! and I still get woosey at times.......geofkaye

....another thing I have found about horses.....for whatever reason they sometimes just kick their stalls and chew all the wood within reach......"not in my coach you hay burner...BOOM!!!] horse meat is in dog food isn't it?.....Here MAXX.... I got some real meat for you instead of dry dog food and water".........geofkaye

Geof tell us what you really think, and don't hold back.

I live in Amish country so it doesn't bother me. I am sure a horse lover may say the same thing about that hound dog of yours.

Anyway, I would not need a horse toter myself, but finish off the back side with the remainder of the motorhome and I am loven life.

And I live near Los Angeles in Norco - slogan: Horsetown USA - with 2 dogs and most my neighbors have horses (and 1 camel in town) besides boats, 5ers, trailers... so what am I to say?

Anyway, that Scania looks like a truck to me, not a bus. Strange though as most tractors on Europe are only 1 axle, not twins. Also, looking close it looks as the whole cab, including the bunk over it, might tilt forward.

Have to ask my familiy back home (Austria) if they ever seen something like this on the road.

That is a nice one. I've seen one or two trucks almost in the same catigory, but never as nicely done as this one (and lots like the Ford Cargo conversion on the other thread). I'd definatly like to make/buy something like this as warpath described. Certainly would put the guys in second hand 3 1/2 ton C class motorhomes (£30000/$55000 worth) to shame...especially the ones that have had to add a second axel to cope with the weight. I'd say to them 'now if that works so well, why don't all the commersial vans do it?' :P

Now this one is especially for Geof, take your pick from any of these conversions... from so-so cool to ugly to downright disgusting.

http://www.horsequest.co.uk/TransportHorseboxes.htm

Those ones are a bit better.
http://www.warrenclarkesporthorses.com/horseboxes.html

I think nr 2,14 and 15 look cool.

the pic that warpath showed us.. reading Scanias webpage (and im too lazy to convert from german to english) the model P is their regional and local truck (Freightliner M2?) and the 340 is for the 340HP engine, 11 or 12 liter!!

some pics from the Scania webpage here (I got way too much time on my hands, better go back to work)
