We have cats and dogs. Our cats never could take the trauma of camping and traveling for a week at a time. We leave them at home and they are much happier.

Our kitten seems to like camping too..we keep her box in our bathroom.needs a lid though...sometimes I think she is digging to china. We have an exhaust fan in the vent so it helps if she gets stinky. Besides we empty it when she goes, it's not like we have someplace to be if we are camping...

Our MH has bunks, so we put the cat box on the lower one once the mattress is removed. Out of the way and easy to clean. We also have a supply of brown lunch bags nearby to put the scooped stuff into before the garbage, helps contain the smell.
We actually camp with 3 cats, and they think it's great! They love the big windows.
Happy camping!

This is a topic I'm very familiar with as I think I've tried everything. At first I put it in front of the passenger's seat (since it's just me). Out of the way, but a pain to scoop the poops. Then I put a very large pan in the shower. That works great... as long as you don't want to use the shower. For a while I was using the park showers, but got tired of that.

So... then I bought this cat litter cabinet and stuck it between the seats right behind the hump. This is an actual piece of furniture that actually looks nice. This was great except for two things: I couldn't put a very big litter in it and as a result one of the kitties kept peeing over the edge. The cabinet wasn't water tight so the pee leaked out. Then I got clever and lined the whole thing with adhesive Contact shelf paper. However, I still had to remove the litter and clean up pee from the cabinet on a regular basis. That got old.

My current solution which seems to be working well though which is not as attractive as the cabinet was is an extra large litter with a high dome lid. Keeps the pee in. I put it right behind the driver's seat for now. I'm fanatical about keeping it scooped out, so I also never notice a smell. I do have to vacuum up litter regularly, but I bought a good cordless stick vac and it's not that big a deal.

I'll be interested to see others' solutions.

I suggest placing it under one of the booth dinette seats... On the 2015 you can remove the flip down drawer making it easily accessible for your cat.

Hmmm, what if you removed the bottom 2 centre drawers in the bedroom and redid the cabinet space there to accommodate ?

I know space is a premium but guess it depends on your length if trips and priorities.

Just a thought....

Check out Tidy Cat Breeze litter system. It uses pellets and pads. Perfect for travel and there is little to no litter tracking outside of the box. My 20 year old cat loves to travel in the RV and this litter box system makes it effortless for me.

At home I switched to Petco's brand of "Yesterday News" litter. It is the pellet type made out of old newspaper. The pellet type is so much nicer once you get used to the difference. I don't miss the dust or the weight of the old sand type kitty litter being carried out to the trashcan.
