    So I got 2 dogs; a German Shepherd and a Husky. I was looking into those dog hammocks/seat covers and was wondering if any of ya'll have any experience with em. Putting them in the bed is not acceptable since I take long road trips with them + luggage, but since I traded in my full-size truck, I would need something that will cover my seats (my silverado seats folded up so they had the whole rear cab floor to lay in and not on the seats).

    It seems like these hammocks/seat covers are looped around the seat headrests, is there a way to connect em with seats in the stowed position? seems like they get a bit more room when its stowed, but still need to cover the interior since they are on a higher level.

    Thanks!

    For the most part the hammock things fit lousy. For one small dog they may be ok. One suggestion is custom seat covers for the back seat. I have covers by Marathon. They are tough and waterproof material look good and fit great. My lab rides in the back seat all the time, even after hunting when he is filthy. They clean up with a damp sponge. I do often put something down on the back seat like a blanket, beach towel or drop cloth to get most of the dirt. They are not cheap but are worth it. My marathon seat covers are 6+ years old and still in great shape.

    Some solutions were discussed in this thread.

    For now I am just using a large bed sheet tucked in behind the seat latch.

    I got them with the large map pockets and double gun loops. I wish they had a gun loop option for the back of the headrests...they may be able to add them as a custom addition, I didnt ask.

    I have to agree on the marathon covers I've had them on probably 8 or so different trucks and they are very durable fit great and clean up good. Yes they seem to cost more but they will be the only ones you will ever need, I just ordered a set for my 13 a few days ago If you are a local you don't have to wait as long.

    Do not get Wet Okoles for dogs. Most dogs hair will stick in them and its a huge pain to get out. I would get Marathons or Headwaters seat covers. The link above that has the platform is AMAZING. I built one that is 60/40 split and I am more than happy with it. If you don't have a ton of people that ride in the back you could get away going with a solid platform.

    I have one of those hammocks from Mud River. It's a brown duck color on one side and a god ugly blaze orange on the other. But so far, it's been good to me and my Yellow Lab. And you know how they shed! But protected the seats through one tough duck season so far.

    We put the crew cab seats up and then used a seat protector and just let it hand down and lay on the floor, but we covered it with a rubber mat. Works great!
