That’s why I got one . I use the bed of my truck a lot . My aluminum box was just to heavy for me to keep taking in and out . I just wish it would hold more dogs . Those of us that like them , should all email easy loader and ask for a larger , but not taller box . They make a xl model that is a little deeper , but it is 25 inches tall . I would like one 48 inches wide at the bottom x 40 inches deep and 19 inches tall , call it the beagler .
