My dogs would never be in the trailer while moving because I myself would not be in the trailer while moving. If you've seen them in a accident how they hold up you will change your mind

You didn't say whether the girls were 6 or16 but either way three dogs and two kids on the back seat would have created its own issues. Unless your truck bed is full of other items, mdstudey gave probably the best solution. But, it has its own issues. Our old dog would want to come up front through the dual sliders. Was not a crew cab. If we closed it then the heat and a/c didn't flow to the back. If you use the tt again consider putting them up front in the trailer instead of the back in the bunks. There is much less motion forward of the axles. By the way your fridge runs on gas while you are driving. Was it on properly? If you had already changed over to 110v before going in you likely couldn't tell. Thank you for sharing as we want to get a dog but have held off due to the various issues they present.

Rule of thumb....if humans aren't allowed to ride in the rig when it is traveling, extend the same intelligent safety concern to the animals. Not lecturing, just common sense....don't do this again, anybody!

Missouri law allows people in the trailer with communication to the driver everyone lay off theses people they are just trying to warn people of a issue they had . Let the first one to never make a mistake stand up please!

Thank goodness you are very lucky as we travel with my two dogs and my parrot and I could never think of losing them in that way! lesson learned but how will you travel in the future as you state you did this to fit everyone in the truck for the trip?

Two kids. Aged 10. The dogs simply don't fit in the crew cab with the kids wearing seatbelts, which we awful parents require. The bed is a short bed and there is no pass through window so that would only work on cooler days. In NC people are allowed to travel in the Arab. Doesn't make it right or comfortable but it is legal. I might just have to hop in the back to try it out.

Thanks for the well wishes from most of the posters.

Just a thought was the refrigerator on using propane and a roof vent open in the bunk house? Fumes coming out refrigerator chimney then getting sucked in open roof vent.

Glad everything worked out OK. Give them a little more ventilation next time and they will be fine. They drink from mud holes and lick their fannies. They are more resilient than humans, which they aren't. They will travel just fine in the camper.
