I have had some ask me questions on using a utility trailer as a dog trailer and have seen postings on various forums asking about using them as a dog trailer so I figured I would put togther an article on my utility trailer evolution into a dog trailer.

those look like some truck tires on it too, especially like the dog door on the tailgate

The door on the tailgate has come in handy.

Hey Buckshot I have been playing with the idea of building something like your set-up....after looking at yours I have some questions

with the side panels on there how do you adjust the air flow to your dogs?

is the set-up to heavy for a 4-wheeler?

being that short (6 foot) does it seem to bouce much going down old gravel roads?

with it being all black does it get hotter than a normal box?

It has rear and side air panels on the box -- the box is not mounted flush on the sides. There is space for air flow.

is the set-up to heavy for a 4-wheeler?

Trailer without box, spare, and side panels weighs I think 600lbs - the floor of the trailer is diamond plate steel like car hauler trailers.

being that short (6 foot) does it seem to bouce much going down old gravel roads?

See above on weight -- Add the box and side rails, spare tires, and dogs and it has some weight to it....if it was a light weight trailer, I can see the bouncing issue.

with it being all black does it get hotter than a normal box?

I ran heat test on the LineX box compared to a regular box. Here are the results:

I bought three idential thermometers - 1 for linex box, 1 for normal box, and 1 for outside temp.

Atter 3 days of checking at different times during the day, there is no difference in the linex box inside temps compared to the inside temps of the normal box.

On Tuesday, 1 reading was 2 degrees cooler in the linex box over the normal box -- that was the only incident of any difference over the 3 days of testing.


I had the box LineX back in 2008 and have had no heat related issues with the dogs and the box...........From my understanding, the LineX has a heat reducing element to it.

I had asked a guy from Diamond Deluxe about their black boxes and heat test since their's is not LineX coated but he did not get back with me.
