I posted this before more specifically on glide-ariums. Besides those what do people use for short multiple day trips? More specifically going to my parents for maybe 3-4 days or so? The big cage is too much hassle to take apart and put back up. I like the glide-atriums, but I think getting them out and not being able to attach anything to them without modifications of extras would not be great so I was looking more a smaller bird cage or something that I can keep there and pull out when I visit. Does anyone know of something or what they use or thoughts on that?

Glidariums have a PVC frame and you can either get some stainless shower curtain hooks or a fleece sleeve with a lot of loops to hang things from. You may want to ask if they happen to come with them.

I am currently using this for 2 gliders in our RV. I bought this before Dot came along and they were both joeys.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SK7HOYA/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=I16I18PYMU60OG&colid=3QX1LOWSOII16

I was told it would hold up to 3 gliders. I am looking for a replacement, it's awkward, I've already had to paint it, and honestly not worth the money.

I am looking for a replacement, but space is at a premium, and the girls get a lot of time outside this cage at night. It would do for only a few days at a time.

Has anyone had an actual experience with this product? Just found it and looks promising but real experience would be nice.....seems they provide bar pieces to attach inside as well.....

No I have not used this cage but it looks pretty cool!

I did order their sturdy cage for my two for home use. And I love it.

I would trust their judgement on the safety of this cage.

I have one of those, they work well. We stand them up on end, then you can put a full size wheel in the kennel.

I also have ordered the lrg sturdy cage from them, and I have looked into that particular travel cage. I have considered it on and off for some time now. I currently have a Glide-arium, which I really like for a lot of reasons and it has served my gliders well for extended days (over 3 days), when traveling across country (twice).

However, I ordered the glide arium specific in size for my two girls that would fit well in my pop up camper. I then got a boy, which made three and I no longer have a pop up. Even so, they did all do fairly well on those extended trips.
But I still often consider these because I liked the idea of what they offer, I just haven't made up my mind to order one at this time.

So, after all that being said, I do think it's a worth while expense to go with if you do not already have another option. My dealings with Sun Coast Gliders has been very well, I also agree a trustworthy source.

My glide-arium set up for the road trip return across country.

The carrying travel cage (belted in car during travel) holds a sleeping pouch, water silo, and at meal time their food dishes. At night, the cage is placed in the glide arium with a fleece strip tied to the roof door so they don't get locked in or out. Fleece vines are wrapped around the top pvc pipes where toys can be hung.

I like the glide-arium I just am looking at price and having something to attach the wheel to/have a sturdy holding point. My only other worry on this:height. I assume by the dimensions it's only 23 inches high, unless I stand it on its side, which means I negate the potty system they have.....could I just lay down fleece or newspaper? If I wanted to leave it laying sideways is 23 inches high enough? I've got 2 female joeys and I just want to make sure they are happy enough but I like this carrier a lot and it's compact which is awesome.
Side note: I'm looking/ thinking/contemplating a 3rd glider. If needed, could this be used as a quarantine cage? Doing all the switching of pouches and this is probably off in the future, but it would be nice to use it for both? Thoughts on that?

Thank you all. This is super helpful.

As long as the wheel can spin freely it is tall enough. Pocket Pets starter cages are 18x18x24h.

Some Glide-ariums can come with a wheel attachment, not that I'm pushing them, just saying some have it available. Also, if you look at my stand on my travel sized wheel, you will see that the back pvc on the floor lines up to the pvc on the bottom of the frame of my Glide-arium (it doesn't have to be in the corner). A reuseable zip ties were used to hold the wheel stable on first trip across country when it was anchored on the sofa in a motor home that we were transporting to AZ. On my move back to MD, I didn't have them inside the Glide-arium for the riding portion, only nights in the hotel rooms, so the wheel wasn't set up inside during travel. I can use mine vertically or horizontally, it depends on the space, and the setup needed.

Also, whether for Glide-arium or the collapsible crate style, travel enclosure you can use Jan's Custom Cage Liners. I've been considering ordering 2 sets to use vertically or horizontally for my Glide-arium. The only reason I haven't is because I've been considering looking for other options as well for travel to have a bit larger one (mine was custom to fit in pop up camper I no longer have).

As far as 23", you should be able to fit a travel sized wheel in there with floor stand as long as it has a low profile like the one I have.

I'm not against a glide-arium by any means! I'm just thinking having to figure out ways to hang things and get everything built and set up plus the breakdown and possible leaving st my parents house a filing flat thing might be better.
That being said I really like the look of a glide-arium and I love the ease of setup, stuffy and ready to go and size especially. I'm very concerned about size for my girls. But then the price is also higher the bigger I go and the zipper opening means my girls might be able to run under my arm and escape.
I'm all over the place. I love the glide-arium, and I love the idea of the pop up if it works the way I think it will.....I'm so undecided!! But I do like the wheel fix, zip tie it to the bottom pole which takes that worry away if I go that route. I have a lot of fleece but I'll look into the liners too, since if I go with the arium it won't have a poop trY. And my girls are so messy.

I understand, I love the Glide-arium that I have as well, yet at times I still consider a pop up version because it may be even easier to set up & transport, but I'm not sure of the ease of cleaning one of those, so it's a toss up for me. I do know that you can get pop up kennels in larger sizes, and even cheaper than the larger Glide-ariums, but you still need the creative ways to hang stuff. This makes it extremely challenging for me due to the one fact I deplore water bottles, so opt for silos, which are harder to accommodate in soft-sided enclosures. Using the travel-cage carrier helps with my feeding/water serving issues, but still not ideal. I'm working on perfecting my setup, but still undecided myself on whether to switch to a new travel enclosure. Although I do not have any travel plans in the near future, and haven't had any since my return from AZ where I took my gliders.

The setup from SunCoast looks very nice, and for what it includes in the package sounds like a decent deal. When you look for a travel wheel, look for a lower (but still safe) stand, the one I have is perfect for travel wheel. I have the voyager and size small, standared floor stand

Whichever you decide, the above should fit well. As you can see in my avatar, two gliders have been in this wheel at the same time, lol. It is small though, but they didn't mind sharing this wheel when used during travel and out of cage play time.

It seems like we both are trying to find something perfect that doesn't exist yet haha. I like that there is a water bottle holder in the pop up one, but I do think cleaning inside could be difficult and a lot of wiping. I'm going to check out that wheel! Right now my girls have an attixworks wheel which they love but for travel again I'm unsure. They are still very young so it should be fine for now.
I keep planning on moving to silos but my girls seem to love their dish and pushing the bottle back and forth so I've left it in for fear or them just dumping a silo all over the place.

I'm gonna wait a bit until it's closer see what I can choose. There are so many choices and so many different options!!

Thank you for all you help too!!

Yup, you're right on the head of the nail with that statement! :lol: I look and look and am always thinking of mods that would make the "perfect" travel enclosure that meets all my criteria. Any-who, I wish you the best of luck in your quest. I've been putting it off because I haven't had a real need as of yet, but I'm starting to think I'd rather be prepared when the time comes up. I do know I can go with what I have, just always in research of "perfection".

Not trying to be pushy about silos either, but they really shouldn't knock them around. I'm not sure of which "home" cage you have, but the silo itself can sit on the outside and only the bowl portion sticks through (usually), they're pretty stable that way.

But it is good to bounce ideas off each other on the board. Putting more minds behind things, could result in success grin
