    I have the Intermediate and the Large. My 65 lb female fits in the Large. She outgrew the Intermediate pretty quickly - at about 50 lbs.
    Good, sturdy crates with excellent ventilation.

    Double door large for my #68 lab. It fits behind the driver seat of my F150 Super crew cab.

    I have 2 of the large. The large fits my male at +-70# but is to big for my female around 55#

    Has anyone experienced problems with the older door latches? I have the wire doors, not the newer plastic ones. My female will paw at the door when she thinks its her turn to come out. She has twice hit the latch with her paw *just right,* popping the cover off of the latch mechanism. Without the cover, the latch literally fell apart and the door opened. I fixed it with a black zip tie around the outside of the plastic cover. Just something to be aware of, or maybe I'm the only one. LOL

    i have the intermediate and my 65-70lb lab fits in it. i cant speak to well about the ventalation on it cause it is in the back of ford focus but slide it to the middle of the seat and put a kennel fan with all 4 windows down she is fine even in the middle of the summer here in GA.

    If you have a smaller male or a female the intermediate is good. but any bigger then about 65lbs and you need to go to the large. I love mine. One of the few purchases I have made that I haven't regretted for a second.

    All three of our 65lb or so gals do well in large. We travel a lot and winter in TX. We use Mud River insulated covers when it is cool or cold. Tight fit with a bit too many pockets for my use but they are good stuff. Be sure to get the handles on the ruff tuff to make it easier to move around. We upgraded to the plastic doors on two of the originals and like them way more than the metal ones. Not only that but the company is extremely good to work with. I guess we have had 2 one doors 3 years or so and added the 2 door when our 10 m/o got old enough to use it. Love all of them.

    I have two large RTK, they are the only "large" crates that would fit side-by-side in the bed of an Avalanche (narrow bed). I absolutely love them. Sturdy, well ventilated, and easy to remove when I need to use my truck bed for other purposes. I use Mud River covers during winter months.
