    I looked at them a couple years ago and thought they were kind of cheaply made. The guy who makes them is nice enough and talked with me several times. They are nowhere close to a top end box (Mountain Top, Ainley...). That said they are probably fine depending on how you use them.

    Thanks, the guy's actually about 2.5 hours away - close enough for pickup, but I didn't want to waste a trip for nothing. This is a photo from the listing.

    More like a "Pinto" of dog boxes.

    I've got one just like the one in your picture (except black in color), Mine is sturdy , heavy and does what I need it to do , safely contain dogs. It is not an Ainley, but it is affordable and serves its purpose well. It was in my price range and has been a good box for me and my dogs.

    It may be a Pinto ,but it is WAY safer than a plastic kennel "tied down" in the back of a truck. This is what I'll probably use until I can buy an Ainley.

    Mostly what the hound folks use....so for them, it tends to be high end. But no contest compared to Ainley, Mt. Top, etc.

    I agree with this. If it is what you can afford it is far better than a crate. A good starter box.

    Thanks for the replies, I honestly don't know why I'm looking at it, as right now I have a Quad cab Dodge & they ride in the back seat.
