I haul 4 in my Sequoia.
But I took all the back seats out the day I bought it and built a platform that has storage underneath.
Two large crates face out the rear liftgate, two intermediate crates face toward the passenger door. The crates have fans run off the car, so it's well ventilated going down the road and they can be run when parked for a long time withoout drawing the battery down much.
Susan has 430k, I've only got 150k.(Keith is my hero with all of those miles.)
Where is the marine battery located on your SUV? Sounds like a good idea.Oh Keith - you copied me! this is my set up! BUt I have drawers out hte back end. And, a marine batter that charges up as I drive for the fans.
I will double up on the small dogs. They lay on each other anyway, and on one groans. I just put them with their buddy. They all seem to have a buddy.
I have 430,000 miles on that truck!
One more thing. I have been doing more and more solar setups to power lights and fans etc for boxes. It works well with all the LED lighting and if you get efficient DC fans.Where is the marine battery located on your SUV? Sounds like a good idea.
There's Truck Vault, a company that makes plastic ones and this. They're all nice, but I made mine lower so I could see out the back window over the top of the dog crates. (I haul SOG wingers on top of the crates for short distances and thought about making a holder for them on the roof rack, but mostly train behind the house 1/4 mi.)
