15 hours is a long time in a car. A small hamster cage works well. This one:https://www.petsmart.com/small-pet/...at-choice-hamster-starter-kit-41473.html
Is what I have used for longer trips. I take out the wheel, tunnel and water bottle and have thrown them away. I made a fleece liner for the floor, use the dish provided for water, just enough to keep from spilling, and I place a few pieces of their fruits and a few veg's from their diet
on the same shelf too. I also add a few slices of an apple inside their sleeping pouch. Cover the cage completely with a fleece blanket you have slept with for familiar smell and for drafts.
I also have this:http://www.spinzoneglobal.com/Carrier-12-x-7_p_206.html
I use it about 95% of the time. It doesn't provide a lot of space, will leak potty, and my youngest, Stewie isn't fond of it if he's been in it longer than his sleep time. I have made a cover for it, which helps with drafts and potty. I add apples and grapes in the pouch and in the bottom of it. It is pricey. But washable.
Both of the cages mentioned above are able to be put in a seatbelt. And able to take load shifts in the backseat.

You didn't ask about this, but I thought I would give you some thoughts and insight:
Your destination cage can be many things. I have had the best luck with a medium sized pop-up dog kennel. https://www.walmart.com/ip/SportPet...yXNvuoYx6HEhsfFhsGX1ZsGKuYMaAtXNEALw_wcB
I lay mine on it's side. I use a wire bread sack tie to lock the zipper shut. They will figure how a zipper works real quick. A 2 week stay is a long time for gliders, but quite doable. It will require daily or every other day cleaning. I'll get to that in a minute.
I did add a PVC frame inside this kennel for many reasons...#1 I can hang their sleeping pouch easily, I added fleece sleeves with tabs to hang stuff from, and provide more climbing. #2 I have toddler grandkids and I didn't want to deal with any accidents where they fell into the kennel, and any other animals issues.
At my mother in law's house, she has provided a dresser for me to put them on. I cover the top with a plastic trash bag, then a fleece blanket and kennel on top. I also have a fleece blanket that I have slept with to cover the cage.
Inside the kennel, I lay a cut piece of fleece that fits the interior. This will catch the food, spills, and potty/poo. And make it easier to clean. I would make 2 of these so you can remove/wash the other. While replacing the fleece, wipe down the sides with vinegar water and you're done.
They will need a wheel or treadmill to run off their anxiety while in a strange place. I have a travel size wheel and a treadmill. They both fit. And should be wiped down when you clean. You will want to try to keep their smell down for the sake of your host/hostess. You want to leave a positive experience for them.
You should also provide a small dish of water to make sure they stay hydrated. I use this instead of a bottle or silo. I replace/wash the water every time I put their dinner in. Hydration is critical during this time. I also provide a dish for their nectar (BML) and 2 dishes of fruits and vegetables.
If you have a tent for bonding
, I would take that along too. It helps give the gliders more exercise and a chance to play with you in a safe environment.
*****Did I mention this is a perfect time to bond
more closely? Your gliders will be stressed and will want to be with you, you are their safe place. You will be they only thing they know in a strange place, with strange smells.
**** Will there be other animals there? Like dogs, cats, small children?( I'm not categorizing children as animals BTW) if so, there are precautions to take there too...
***** Take more food than you need for 2 weeks. You never know when something may come up and you are delayed.
Sorry this is so long, I hope it was helpful. There are so many things that can go wrong outside of your home, and I've tried to cover as much as I could think of. We have traveled with gliders for 4+ years in an RV, and taken dozens of trips without it.
