    Default Crates for Expedition

    Does any mfg make a crate system to fit a new expedition with these requirements:

    must be very suitable for warm weather and lots of ventilation (Florida)
    2 crates side by side
    storage drawer underneath.
    Aluminum

    I have a Chevy Suburban, and did some shopping around recently.

    Truck Vault makes a nice system, for a huge price tag - $1000 for a crate!!! Plus they weigh a ton.

    Check out this site for drawers: http://www.suvcargocaddy.com/

    I then added two nice wire crates on top of the drawer units. They are all light weight enough to take out when I need to haul some stuff w/out the dogs. All of this for a fraction of the cost of most systems.

    The other unit I looked at was harder to take in and out since it was heavy, but not too pricey. You may want ot look at them though:

    Good luck

    I bought a Deer Creek box. You can choose fro a number of different options. You can see their products at www.deer-creek.org. I live in Arkansas so insulation during hot weather was extremely important to me as well. I'd highly recommend their product.

    "The thing I admire about the rat tail is that it takes commitment. It's not like one day you just decide you want one, you have to grow out that bad boy and you have to repeatedly convince the hairdresser to trust you because it's a great idea."
