We needed a way to transport the dogs in the back of the truck, and didn’t want to get a topper (hard to take on and off when moving compost etc) and couldn’t see spending several hundred dollars for a commercial dog crate.
So we decided to build our own out of PVC pipe and fencing.
First we built a frame using 3/4″ PVC some special PVC connectors (3-way and 4-way) ordered off the internet. The shorter end tucks up underneath the truck bed cover.
Then we enclosed the sides with horse fence cut to shape, and covered the top with wire fencing which was connected tightly using cable ties.
After their first ride the dogs are happy.
