Darr thinks the kennel is good...The handle on top is a huge benefit. I like the quality construction. I have a Ruff Tuff kennel, but your kennel will be my first choice...John K, Gothenburg, NE
The Kennebec Kennel and Badlands Vault System is the ultimate hunting unit. The Badlands Vault is a great way to store your hunting equipment. The long drawer extends completely for total access to weapons and accessories. It's lined with thick foam padding that will cushion and protect its contents during transport and storage. And it's deep enough to hold fully scoped rifles to avoid removing optics. The drawer interior measures 54.5 Dx 16.5 W x 10.75 H. When closed, the drawer can be locked with the included keys via the cam latch on the front. On the back of the unit, a set of two wheels allow for convenient mobility. Just lift from the drawer face and pull like a dolly. Along each side are slits that can be used to secure the Badlands Vault to a vehicle bed by using straps or other tiedowns. Not only is the entire unit weatherproof but it's TOUGH. Serious engineering went into the drawer and case so two stacked side by side can easily support the weight of a fully loaded ATV or UTV without compromising your gear. The same level of detail has been brought to the Kennebec Kennel. This rugged crate is molded as a single unit that will not split, crack, or break apart like most every other crate on the market. The Kennel is sized to accommodate most dogs and pets. The steel door is double hinged to allow swinging in both directions and can be removed for cleaning or providing additional space to enter or exit. While inside, dogs will stay cool on those long hunts as there is plenty of air flow. And if they have an accident or make a mess, the smooth, polyethylene surface can easily be sprayed off or wiped down. On the top side, two large handles make moving and lifting the crate a snap. Just like the Badlands Vault, the Kennebec Kennel can take serious punishment. Its load-bearing ability is second to none and it can take heavy impacts without being damaged or injuring the pet inside. The Kennel can easily strap down to the Vault by the rubber latches located along the sides. This will ensure a tight connection and keep your cargo secure over uneven terrain. The Kennel can also be positioned towards the front for quick access or the back to use the Vault as a step down for pets. The System is designed to work with most standard trucks, SUVs and utility vehicles but be sure to check your space requirements first. Protect your toys and pets with the Dakota 283 Badlands Vault and Kennebec Kennel System.
