This is a great kennel for hotel travel and use around the house. It’s light enough to move everyday if you need to. It straps easily and securely into the truck bed. It has a unique size that seems to fit really well everywhere. We store ours in a bathroom linen cabinet. The side door allows you to load on a luggage cart and put your dog in and you can place the kennel along a wall instead of perpendicular to the wall, saving space in your room. Most kennel pads fit nicely in the bottom. It’s very easy to clean. The unique size is also con because I can’t seem to find a winter cover that fits this thing. Another con is that the powder coat on the door assembly started coming off almost immediately.
