Dog Crate Platform / 3rd Row Removed

Recommended Posts

Dog crate project. We have a 16 LWB, we removed the third row of seats and built a platform that has storage underneath. Everything is easily removable in the event we would need to get a large item with the van. In fact the rear crates, platform and storage containers can stay in place when using the second row of seating for passangers. Since we have three dogs and the front crate (2nd part of this) project should be complete by the weekend, pictures to follow. The platform is made form aluminum uni-strut, closed cell foam tape, birch plywood and rubber matting underneath the crates make rattles non existent. Some pictures of the crates with the seats removed, the frame installed, second row seat up and completed project.

Good job with the Uni-Strut.  I've always thought that Uni-Strut could build almost anything.

@bug512 - thanks for the pic. I recognize that pooch pack. You posted that pic back in March.

Seeing cool dogs never gets old. Right on!
