Thanks for all the replies. The wife and I thought we might be missing something. The open floor space should work well with our four legged friends.

With a 295RL on order, due for delivery next month, we are looking forward to the extra room for us and the dogs. What we've always done is set up foldable dog fencing and carpet to give us and the dogs a place to relax outside. With the door open the dogs can go in and out as they please, without being leashed.

Christopher Columbus,

The clip on the steps your talking about, whats the rating for the size of dog? I fear that if I attach just one of my 90 lbs labs to it, something is going to get bent if he decides to pull hard enough or gives it a good jolt.

Christopher Columbus,

What kinda of weight rating / dog size would be suggested not to exceed for the clip on the step?

I have a 340RK with an island. We travel with a 50 lb dog. We like it fine for space, and if we did allow our dog in the kitchen she could easily walk around the island to get there. The island serves as our dry goods pantry (I added shelving) and it also is nice for a buffet counter. I wouldn't trade the island for more dog space.

I asked the factory rep how do you secure the rolling island? He said with straps that attach to D-rings in the floor. Our 2 labs and a new camper will be challenging. The D-rings will make good harness attachment points. Asleep on the floor, a big bowl of water, and AC should work fine.
