Premium+ Rabbit Hutches Medium Rabbit Run
Love the rabbit run
I have the rabbit run attached to a double decker hutch and my rabbits LOVE it. It has a large door on hinges and 2 latch openings in the wire. The wire will hold water bottle holders and feed trays easily. Gives my lops room to run with safety. Durable 2. Well worth the money and should work with most hutches. i cover it with a tarp in the cold so they can still run.

This hutch is poor quality and does not last
I've had the hutch and the cover for 4 years. It's advertised as being an outdoor hutch but it's falling to pieces. It started having problems within the first year and they've only multiplied.
The asphalt has developed a bubble, the wood is splitting and peeling apart in the back and the inside of the lid, every piece of metal has rusted. The little wooden door that would otherwise lead to the run (I don't own the run) has now been nailed shut after the hinge pins broke. The piece of wood for the floor behind that door has split and is coming apart.
The cover never fit properly. There's a zipper in the back that would only go about halfway up its tracks because the fit was just a bit off. Even after making it work for a couple of years it too started falling apart. The clear window turned cloudy and hard and it eventually cracked.
If you're looking for a hutch to last the duration of a young bun's life, look elsewhere.

Product and picture misleading
The picture of the hutch show a nice clean bunny sitting on beautiful green grass inside his puny run. Huh! I have rabbits. Let me tell you the reality. The grass will all be gone in one or two days. You will be left with dust and mud.
Next, this "run" is not a run - it is a hippity hop. A run should be just that: a place where the rabbit can RUN. So, the "run" is too small and inadequate for the health of the rabbit. Rabbits need to run to keep their urinary tracts from getting infected as well as for all the other reason sentient beings need to run: coronary health, psychological health, etc.
Finally, rabbits are masters of escape - any rabbit will dig a hole and escape from this run in less than 1 day. All runs must be fortified with underground barrier perimeters or large heavy barriers on the surface along the perimeter. We use tree logs. Rabbits tend to dig u shaped holes that go just beyond what they see. So when they come up against the heavy logs, they are deterred and eventually they stop digging holes altogether.
