I borrowed this box at the beginning of season for my 2 dogs. It has worked fine, but I need to get my own for next season. I really like/need the top storage. I think I would like deeper holes for the times I go with a buddy and he has 2 dogs also. Any suggestions on good brands and models? Thanks!

I have tried Diamond Deluxe and Owens boxes. I prefer the Owens. I haul three dogs to a side 535 miles and they have plenty room. Well made and plenty ventilation.

Mine is either an Owens or Deerskin, I know my topper is a deerskin. I personally don't like doubling them up in a slot. It's a fight waiting to happen imo. It happened to me and a friend of mine the first night we pulled into Kansas, got a little bit ugly trying to get them apart. Two puppies or young dogs are probably ok, but even the nicest, friendliest dogs can get a little grumpy when they're cold and tired. Just my 2cents

I like one that is no wider than 48 inches. That way it will slide between you wheel wells, so you can use it at the tailgate or against the cab, and it will also fit into all UTVs except a Ranger. I had mine made at Kline Line, but it has no storage.

If there's a chance you are going to have four dogs or more, would you consider a trailer? A trailer will also provided the needed storage.

I'm thinking about this one. Can I haul 2 dogs in each compartment?

You can haul and hunt four dogs with that box but I don't like to sleep four in there.

Thats the box I have and absolutely love it. There is more than enough room for 2 dogs in each compartment (like said above, as long as they get along) the boxes are huge.

Actually mine is 48" wide so not the exact same box. Will never understand why Polaris wont design the Ranger with 48" clear width bed.

Would you be able to give me the dimensions of each hole?

This one is a 48 inch by 30 inch.. It's easily loaded to my pickup. It will hunt six and sleep 3.
