where do you put the kitty litter box

Hi! I am looking for some good ideas for stowing the kitty litter box. Anyone got a great solution for a 2014 FR3 30 DS?

Some people put the box in the shower with the door open.

I use a plastic tote with a lid. Cut a cat sized hole in an end. Keeps him from kicking litter everywhere. I keep it under the table most of the time.

I have a 25DS and we use a regular plastc liter box nested in the bottom half of a plastc dog house. keeps the liter pretty good...one of our two cats likes to dig. We stick it in front of the large free space cabinet just behind the booth. Your 30DS is laid out different so your milage may very. The cats love the RV.

Thanks everyone. We have one kitty and she loves RV. For now we have a standard litterbox next to the bed on the left as you come in the bedroom door. Seems like a lot of FR3 owners use the shower. Kitty tracks litter some and we did not want to have to take 15 minutes to move everything around and vacuum when we wanted to shower. Also thought possibility of clumping litter clogging pipe if we were not careful was too big a risk. I am considering all kinds of options that I have seen on the web/TV, but wanted to know if somone had an FR3-specific solution.

To those who don't RV with cats... That's okay, but please go to some other topic where you can be helpful. Don't waste your time and mine telling me not to RV with my cat.

It's not an FR-3 specific solution but this is what we do. I reluctantly take the cat when we travel 3 or more days away. It's my daughter's pet and it has a good dose of Ferrell blood in her. I'm stuck with it since she's away at college. Well, back on topic....I put the litter box on the linoleum in the kitchen where it's an easy clean up when the cat tracks it out.

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.
