Default Bringing puppy home - car question

I get to pick up our puppy this weekend, very excited! The breeder we selected is a five-hour drive from home. We plan to drive up the night before, stay in a hotel and pick up the puppy early the next morning and have a leisurely drive home.

My question is, how is the best way to travel in the car with the pup? I have a 48" Midwest life-stage crate in the house (divide, of course!), I'm not sure if that will fit in the car or will be the best idea. Should I buy a smaller travel crate? Does she need to be a crate? There will be 2 of us, so one of us could sit in the back with her.

Did any of you have a long drive with your new 8 week pup? What did you do?

Thanks!
