Pets in camper

How are people handling this?

As a teen, we lost a cat when the air froze up and the cat passed away because of the heat.

As a result, I am terrified to leave my girls alone in the RV.

My girls are used to traveling. They have stayed in hotels, cabins, and tents....but never an RV.

We take both our animals. One cat and one dog. Our trailer never gets too hot. However if we think that it might, we have the fans running just to keep it comfortable. As much as it must be a very scary feeling to lose a member of your family, I couldn't imagine not taking them with us. Trailers don't get hot like cars do. Jerry

We always take our cat. We leave windows open and maybe a fan on. Haven't been in a situation yet where it got way too hot.

Our roof vent fans are on thermostat, if the AC would die the fans take over to prevent a meltdown. Having said that, we decide on a day to day basis what to do with our little rascal.

We take our kids with us wherever we go. Sometimes it causes us to go into places separately but we don't want to leave them and they enjoy "going". They don't care where just as long as they go! Actually a lot of places will allow you to bring your behaved fuzz kids in with you, especially in tourist towns!


But that's just our choice! If we brought the cat I'm sure she would prefer to be left in the camper in the A/C! She is lazy like that!

I always thought most campgrounds have rules against leaving your pets unattended. Am I wrong? Ours go with us whereever we go. We find a cool spot to park, or take them with us into town. They always get lots of attention that way.

Some do. Most that we've stayed at have been okay to leave unattended as long as they are inside and not a nuisance.

We take them with us whenever we can but it's not always a possibilty.

Often Campgrounds rule is pets not left unattended outside, to cause a nuisance barking etc. Most campgrounds allow you to leave them inside unattended. We have not ran into a campground as yet that will not allow pets to be left unattended inside. I know there are bound to be a few.

We do leave ours in the camper with the air on at times, but make sure its not for long periods. Is there a risk yea but its better than leaving them for a week or more in a small kennel back home. They enjoy being with us.
