Here's what I was thinking.... a cage like the one in the attached pic, sitting on the ground at the back of the MH. On the 378, this is the back bedroom wall. Have a trap door in that wall just above the floor, with a tube or some kind of walkway long enough to reach the cage. The walkway is attached to the cage, with a hole cut in the cage for entry. Shelves are mounted in the cage for access to the ground and back up.
I think this is do-able. My question is, what's involved in cutting the hole in the wall of the MH? I have neither the tools nor the know-how to do it. Would a RV dealer do something like this? It doesn't seem like it would be much different from putting in a dryer vent, just a little bigger.
Comments? Suggestions? Thanks.
PS - pic is from a cat cage website... not me in the pic. I'm a dude, y'all.
