    Square cage used for a hedgehog, different color, same measurements:


    I would recommend the 160 cage, but this is also meets the recommended size guidelines.

    Not right now unfortunately, I live in Sweden & they go under another manufacturer name so it's hard to track down internationally.

    Yes I know. :)
    Measure your home & the caravan and see if you can fit either in there, but I do recommend the largest one for permanent housing.
    Alternatively you could use a smaller temporary cage during your trips. A C&C cage would actually work really well for this as you can take it apart & build a smaller cage when you need to, and zip ties will hold it safely together. http://www.wayfair.co.uk/Safco-Wire-...L-SAF1061.html

    I just remembered you already have a 9.38 sq ft cage, a good upgrade in the future would be the 160 cage or a 2x5 C&C if you have the room for it. :) But your current cage is okay. I don't see a reason to spend money on the square cage as it's only a tad larger.

    I know, thanks. Though 100 is a lot, I don't have the money, because I have been saving up for something else

    It's not an emergency at all, your current cage is fine. :)

    Those cages are huge. I think folding up the coroplast so it lays flat and taking apart the grids would take up so much less space during transport. You can zip tie the grids into one long strip and then it will just accordion fold it down. When you get where you are going open it up into a big pen and put the coroplast back in.
