Maybe if Donwell had had real hardship, but I would rather believe that Donwell, an important estate, had kept in the past, a few carriages; I do not imagine Mr Knightley having bought any, just kept the inherited ones — space was probably not lacking for storage. Probably, as you said, the (probably) coach used to the Coles's, as well as lighter ones. Probably not a chaise, the estate being not that enormous (Sir W. Elliot in Persuation, has one with a probably smaller estate but it ruins him, while he believes his baronetage wanted it).
