Hi All,

Hoping for some advice re a Montero long wheel base.

I read somewhere recently that the rear cargo area in a Montero was huge, is this true?

Anyone travel with 2 large dogs in the back without putting the back seats down?

My Jeep is not large enough for travelling with my 2 kids + 2 dogs. We live in the UK so getting my ideal vehicle (Suburban) isn't an option for me.

I'm looking at getting a van/large MPV and it causes me pain every time I think on this.

Could a Montero be my saviour?

There is quite a bit of room behind the "middle" seat in my '05. Our 50 lb dog has plenty of room back there. You should go take a look at one.

If you live in the UK, then these are known as the Shoguns. You even still have current production Gen 4 models with the 3.2l turbo diesel. Gen 3 and Gen 4 have almost identical specs with the only major changes being done to the outer appearance.

Build a platform behind the second row, and you will have plenty space to store gear underneath while your dogs will still have the entire rear space to stay. A makeshift cargo fence can help keep the dogs from ending up in the second row while traveling.

Imnosaint travels with 2 golden retrievers. He sold his Gen 3 for an H3 Hummer, then sold the H3 to buy his old Gen 3 back. :lmao:

He sold the h3 and bought a gen 2.5, but close enough. Quite a few owners will try a different platform and come back to the Montero, they simply make sense for the money spent.

Fantastic, thanks for the advice guys.

I'll have a read through that thread and check out a Shogun.

Sounds promising that imnosaint travels with 2 golden retrievers and I like the cargo space underneath the dogs, good thinking.

There's no way I could do that in the Jeep, it's just not tall enough.

Hopefully I won't have to look at a van/MPV after all.
