    DefaultThe Midwest Crates are in & fit. (4 pics)

    Well the new Midwest Crates came in today. They are made in the USA. Yeah!!
    They are very nice. I would have gotten the 36' length but hubby said to get the bigger one. So now I have an Expedition with 3 rows of seats but two of them are down. : Oh what we do for the girls. Dave said he would rather the girls have more room. Trust me...the smaller size would have been just fine.

    Waiting to help put the first crate together.


    This is where they were when we were putting the second crate together.


    This is how the fit in the Expedition.


    They both jumped in the same crate.


    I don't know why I spend money on two crates....they always seem to be in the same crate. They are two googballs, for sure.

    You have plenty of room there. Mine are TIGHT beside one another in the back. But then I have a TrailBlazer and that is much narrower than your truck

    Georgie, just want to add. These crates rattle a bit. To stop the rattle, bungee cord them together. It really makes a difference!!!

    Also, my dogs would open after a while on the road so I put a bungee cord across both crates in front of the door to hold them shut.

    Enjoy your crates. Its nice to have the dogs safe in the car!!!

    Linda - I would have liked to keep the second room seats up but the 42' length made it a tight fit length wise. The seats tip back just a bit too far & you can't adjust them. But I can put them up if I have to. I will have to put a towel on the backs of the seats though, I'm afraid the crates may poke a hole in the leather seats. :

    Aww.....but the girls will have plenty of room. :

    The crates look very nice and looks like you have plenty of room left too. The girls will be riding in style now.

    Oh yes...the girls will be so comfy. I was complaining about where I will be putting the suitcases for vacation. Dave said....pack light. >

    Why do men ALWAYS think bigger is better? :

    They really are nice crates but he liked the idea that Molly could stand comfortably in it. Who they hel# stands in a crate. They will be laying down. :
