go with the large RTK, You won't be sorry!
i've got the large and my CLM is right at 75 lbs. He's got a little more room than i thought he would. wish i would of had a dealer to test them before i bought mine. i might would of went with the intermediate for road trips as he can get thrown from side to side course that might be his handler's fancy driving skills. if its strictly a house kennel then large is the way to go. if he wouldnt chew every floor covering i've put down then he would have something to grip so right now he's got smooth floors too though
but like everyone said well worth the money! get the handles kit if you are getting a large. i was gonna go with the tray but someone suggested handles and that was def the way to go as they are right around 50lbs
edit: i will say he has become smart when we go on trips that everything is a lot easier for him if he justs sit down so just like he has become "collar wise" he's also become "kennel wise". so the days of him actually getting thrown around are behind us

My dogs range from 65 tp 75 pounds and we have the intermediate. Since we use it for travel, (have a two hole box and ended up with three dogs) it is the perfect size for all of them as they have enough room to stand and turn around, but not so much that they can get thrown around! And for the record, I have not been to outer space. Seems like we just had a visitor from there for about 3 posts. Gone now. I do live in NM though, think I'm attracting them?

Here is a video clip of my 80lbs 2 year old CLM getting into a RTK Intermediate kennel that I have in the back of my Chevy extended cab pickup. This guy is very tall and very long, and for travelling this size is perfect.

Mud River Covers. They make several different kinds. I went to ND duck hunting in Oct & I live in FL Kept my dog outside in rearof SUV at night in low teens & snow. She was warm in mornings when I let her out. Mud Riverer covers have a lot of dog/handler pockets that help keep you organized.

Ok I got the intermediate crate with the handle kit!!
Rought tough kennel. I got a large for my female golden. She is 8 months old and about 50 lbs, I think the size is perfect. Mud river makes pads and covers for them.
