We camp with a 3 year old airedale and an 8 year old rottie. They love coming along… never had a problem with them!

A 7 year old toy party poodle and a 1 year old Shih Tzu, both have camped with us since we acquired them at 6 weeks old. They would chew our legs off if they thought we were leaving them!

My boy gunner is a 9yo white lab and were wondering how this is going to work for us. My TV is a crew cab and with the two girls in the back, there's no room for the guy. I don't know if at this stage in his life I'd feel comfortable putting him in a crate in the bed of the truck with a topper, but I do want him along. Any ideas?

We have no problem putting an 85 lb Weimaraner in the backseat with the two kids. She just lays down at their feet. You should be fine, but only by sticking everyone in and doing a test fit can you really be sure.
The surest way to lose is to play Marco Polo with a ventriloquist.

We are waiting to pick up our first TT. As a previous poster mentioned, one of the things that led us to start TT camping was boarding the dogs. We have three, German Wirehaired Pointer, Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, and a MinPin. THe MinPin is old but the other two just turned 1 yr so this will be all new for them. We even ordered the Hemi 27RLIS specifically with the free-standing dinette so that we could take it out and put a large crate in it's place. I am going to take the top off the dinette, build long legs for it, add a couple stools and put it back in over the crate as a cover-up that can still be used as a table. A smart friend did something similar and lined the bottom of the table and the wal behind the crate with sound-proofing material which helps reduce any barking that might occur in the very rare times they might be in there without us.

Happy Tails and Trails!

x eleventy! Our "Fred" is the same way. We usually pull the RV out in the driveway the night before (can still reach the shore power) we leave and he *knows* it's geaux time!

When we'd take the V-Lite in for warranty work, EVERY time we let him outside he'd RUN to the double gates (privacy fence) and peep through the crack to see if his "dog house on wheels" was back!

I have a cart that I use to load up groceries, etc. and if I geaux get that thing he starts running and spinning in circles! Then goes and plops down UNDER it. "ain't goin' without me!" If we go out to piddle 'round in it he'll be up the steps and inside before we are.


If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:
Flagstaff 5er 2014 8528 IKWS, Platinum Package, Regency Interior "Buffy"
