Question crate training

well, here I am asking the puppy folks for help. I've done this on the general dog chat area, and things did get better, now I need more help. My puppy, boxer) Hates the crate. I'm using a travel kennel right now, and since I started letting him sleep in my room, after 3 nights of sleeping beside the kennel on the couch, he is better, only about 15 mins of crying. Unless of course someone wakes him up, then it starts up again. I take him out, and he goes to the bathroom, then I put him back, and he cries for awhile longer. I've got this part getting better, now I need to transition him to the crate that will be big enough for wehn he is older. I've been putting his food in it, treats and toys, just letting him go in and out at will, then I'll put him in when I'm not going to be home, and he CRIES and barks and howls forever. My son said last time he cried for an hour. Yes, I had made sure he had gone out to the bathroom before putting him up. This crate can't go in my bedroom, it's just to big. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
