I just finished my travel rept to match the travel carrier I posted about earlier. This was a great project for all of these snowy days we've had! It's an 85 gal - 28"W x 16-1/2"D x 36"T - same base as a 65 gal, but 6" taller. It has a wheel-mount on the floor and matching fringed rept gear. I made a non-tip holder for a trough water bottle.

I can't wait to try it out at FIBB next week! Here are pics - let me know what you think!

Travel cage with zipped cover


Side view unzipped


Side view with cover removed


Water bottle holder


New roomy pouch with solid oval-shaped bottom for my pair with joeys IP

Wow! Great job! I wish I could make my own rept covers! As I need one now! LOL For 2 years I have never had anyone chew, and Saturday night I discovered about a 3 inch hole in the top of a rept! I about freaked. I had a spare, but it's packed for the move, so I ordered another one, and did a temp. fix on it. shakehead

I love the blue too! It's something other than black which I like the black, but in the dark it is much harder to see them!

Thank you! It is a pleasant and brighter change, with much better visibility. I have some lime green stashed away for my next project! wink

Ashley, the cover is pet screen, sewn at the seams, with a zipper on one end.

That looks great! What size package does it break down into? I assume you didn't bother cementing the PVC?

Well... I haven't packed it up yet, but the longest pole is 26". I'd like to make a tote for it sometime this week, maybe like those used for the collapsible canvas camping chairs.

PVC cement isn't needed on the frame itself. Most of my wheels are full-bounce Custom Cruisers, like the one in the pic, so I used a dab of PVC cement on the inside of the three wheelbase tees to keep it from flopping over.

I got s hooks on ebay from seller tylerman22, she is VERY nice and easy to work with, combines shipping with no prob. She even credited shipping charges back to me after I'd already paid for shipping on multiple items, because she suggested the combined shipping.
