Empire Ultimate

Our flagship model, where the name really does say it all.
From 18t-26t.

With innovative and thoughtful design throughout, the Ultimate maximises all the custom capabilities of Empire Coachbuilders.

Both externally & internally, an Ultimate oozes luxury and supplies you with unparalleled comfort. At Empire, we believe every Ultimate is at the pinnacle of strength in custom horsebox design within the UK today and with a vast number of features – many unique to Empire and intrinsic to our Ultimate range we can create a space that allows you and your horses to prepare for whatever the occasion requires, be that an international horse show or something a little less demanding.


Moving inside through our bespoke extra depth door, created by our in-house team, you’re welcomed into a living area that is spacious and light but with the ability to be moulded to meet your own specification. Inside you will find cabinetry that is bespoke to each Ultimate alongside a slide-out seating area that is upholstered with your choice of the most exclusive leathers available through Europe. Whether you’re looking to entertain friends and family or unwind after a busy day, with extras such as wine coolers, Bluetooth stereo systems, air conditioning units and Internet-enabled televisions the Ultimate is the perfect place for it all. 


Of course, an Ultimate would not be named such without a bathroom that is reminiscent of the most prestigious of boutique hotels. A large luxurious shower sits at the heart of the bathroom alongside the other amenities to be expected in a luxury shower room. In addition to this, there is bespoke cabinetry, custom heated towel rails, waterproof shaving points, custom mirrors and other such cutting-edge features that utilise the available spaces. If you’re looking for an even greater degree of space in the bathroom, a slide-out shower offers the perfect option to provide this, with our one-of-a-kind skylight shower, providing an abundance of natural light.

Horse Area

The horse area is of paramount importance and is never to be forgotten, after all horses are the reason we are all involved in this industry! By virtue of the bespoke nature of the Ultimate range the extra headroom created throughout the vehicle produces a horse area height of an astounding 9ft, creating a beautifully spacious area for the horses in which to travel that is complemented by our bespoke oversized skylights allowing copious amounts of natural light into this impressive space. The horse area is further complemented by our handcrafted oversized marine grade stainless steel padded partitions, creating a space for each horse of 36’’, the largest in British manufacturing, sloped lockers will aid your horse’s safety, which remains at the forefront of our mind when constructing each and every Empire. Extractor fans, insulated one-piece rubber matting, rubberised kickboards, Multiscreen CCTV, custom-designed rug racks, powerful LED lighting and calming LED night lighting, sealed drainage and temperature monitoring facilities complete the standard high specification of the Ultimate’s horse area.


When looking at the exterior of an Ultimate, you will feast your eyes on the zenith of stylish and modern design, thanks to our in-house fabrication team creating our oversized habitation pods and unique external styling features every custom-built Ultimate will stand out from the crowd. Created without compromise, every inch of an Ultimate is utilised, whether that be from maximising the space with four slide-outs, our cavernous underfloor storage space, a locker-mounted retractable fridge, the external stereo system or any of the other features available from us today.

“My Empire is a beautiful lorry inside and out.

Both the horses and I are able to enjoy complete luxury when travelling to and from events and when I’m staying away it is like a home from home.

Whilst looking beautiful, the lorry is so well built and robust while being completely functional and user friendly. It’s not often you can enjoy style as well as practicality.”

– Kitty King, International Event Rider
