I like the idea, but we have lots of UV resistant plastic on equipment at work, after 3 or 4 years it still turns whitish and gets brittle.

I know a fellow with one, and he really likes it. He is a "one dogger" and says it suits him just fine.

i'm not seeing a "two dogger", and they are too wide to fit side by side....hmmmm

I've seen a few around here at the stores but dont know anyone with one. The co-op had a couple for sale but kept them for a very long time they just couldn't sell em for some reason.

i have used them in the past. i even sold them for a while. the problem i had with them is the screws kept backing out and fall completely out when traveling, especially on a washboardy dirt road. i like the concept but didnt like the design. i also think after a few years in the sun the plastic will crack like the plastic pet porter crates do......

This will keep all plastics in tip top condition.

anyone else have this same issue? I'd be pretty irridated if I had to replace all the screws with nuts and bolts on a $500 plastic dog box. With that, they look great and I'm thinking of going this route.

5 minute epoxy on the ends of the screws, no more backing out....

excellent

for about the same price I could get one of the Zinger Aluminum crates but I like the storage and water tank associated with the High Country.

Also, I assume the High Country has tie down latches molded or some way to secure it in the back of a truck?
