KA RV Is Now Manufacturing Horse Vans

Jan 30, 2024 | Blog

For years, KA RV Repair & Sales has been synonymous with expert RV repairs. We specialize in comprehensive overhauls that often involve rebuilding entire sections of damaged vehicles. With an unparalleled understanding of every facet of RV construction, we’ve honed our expertise to perfection. Now, we’re taking that proficiency to the next level with our brand new partnership with Horse Vans. Not only will we be fixing RVs now, we’ll be building them.

Lately, we’ve made an effort to be more deeply involved in our surrounding community – like sponsoring a college football bowl game in Orlando! Our location in DeBary, Florida, puts us in the heart of Florida’s horse country, so naturally a partnership in the equine world just makes sense. In fact, we’re just down the road from the Horse Capital of the World, Ocala, where our newest partner is located. Horse Vans is a veteran-owned company dedicated to providing bespoke horse transportation solutions. Traditionally, horses have been transported in trailers towed by trucks, offering basic amenities and limited comfort. But Horse Vans set out to elevate the equine travel experience to unprecedented levels of luxury and safety. To do so, they needed an RV manufacturer that knew how to customize RVs, and KA RV was the perfect fit.

Together, we’re revolutionizing equine transport. Leveraging our technical experience with RV construction, Horse Vans is redefining the way horses travel. Welcome to a new era in equine transport, where innovation meets craftsmanship.
