All 7 ride crated for motor home and car trips just in case. Just feel they are safe in case of an accident.

I have two cats, they live in my fifth wheel with me full time. When we are traveling I leave them in the trailer, because I can't take my big baby boy's crying all the time. when we are on the road they like to stay in the bed room cupboard. when we are parked they roam the trailer, but when I am on the computer my big baby boy likes to get on it too. but they keep me company. I save there lives twice, once when they were kittens, and then when the Forest Fire took everything I had now we live full time in the Fifth wheel full time RVing.

We raise the back seat of truck and dog has full back seat access on flat padded floor. We tried restraint but with this particular dog(90 lb. American Bulldog rescue), it was a no go; she acted like she was being tortured. We tried the crate too, also a no go. No restraint, no issues - she just curls up and goes to sleep.

We travel with one cat. She generally sits in her carrier with out being restrained. She sometimes will roam the cab.

I did think of leaving her in the trailer one time when she was wedged under the slide but I did not have the heart...

Thanks for Input!

Thank you all for your input! Like I said, the fur babies are secured when riding in a car. Don't want little projectiles going through my windshield. I will probably end up securing my shotgun rider in a crate as well! Safe Travels to you and your furry friends!

Ours are secured in a PetGear booster seat and then we also use an additional thing to tether them to the seatbelt.

I ended up buying the larger Sleepypod and the Air. Those items are not cheap! I can also use them for transporting my cats to the vet. Thanks for the tip.

Your welcome. Yes they are expensive but worth every penny to protect the little ones.
