I'm the proud new owner of a slightly used (2007) Atomic Blue Element. We took our Swissy and "coated" German Shepherd to a trial this weekend and I was thrilled with our set up. I was able to put my 42 inch double-door crate on wheels and fit it horizontally in the back half of the cargo space, leaving plenty of room for my Greater Swiss Mountain Dog behind the front seats. Our luggage and soft crate fit on top of the wire crate. Driver, passenger and Swissy were quite comfortable and free from distractions by our high-energy adolescent GSD who was happily confined in his own space. I used a net across the back of the front seats to keep the Swissy from climbing in our laps.
