I don't think there should be any problem with travelling with my dog crated in the hatch area (naturally I will not leave her in the car unattended), but I wanted to check with other forum members, in case there may be something I'm not thinking of. I know about the alarm issues, but could I be missing some other reason that having her in a crate in the hatch area would be a bad idea? Also would there any issues with the pictured crate fitting back there? The dimensions are approximately 22 inches in height by 21 inches in width by 28 inches in depth. Would it fit beneath the parcel shelf? And if not, is the parcel shelf easy to temporarily remove and just lay on the floor in the hatch area, or on the floor in the back seat? The alternative is what I do now in my Acura, which is put a blanket on the back seat and ride with the crate on the back seat. It just seems the hatch area would make more sense in the Tesla. Thanks for any input and advice.
