Best money spent on the pups. Easy to set up and tear down too. Stores in the truck.

What fence?

Our ropes/3 dogs get so so tangled. Amazon basics has some that look good. Going to be a Christmas present probably.....

Believe that's what we have. Using one 30" that runs just beneath the trailer, and 2, 36" that run out front. They pretty much use up most campsite covered by the awning (21' in our case).
The shape is easy to modify. Your pups will tell you what height you need.
The fences are not heavy. And fold into about 4" each. 4" folded x 36x24. All are 24" wide. Height is 24" thru 48"
I use 1/2" steel bar to stake up the gates and corners. Not absolutely necessary, but makes for a nice fence. Atrach a bungee cord to the lower gate which actively closes the gate.
The only issue is that at night the fence is invisible unless lit up. We use rope lighting along the top. You'd be surprised how often people cut thru sites at night....ax me how I know...?!
There are higher quality, and much heavier portable fencing. Thi seems a reasonable trade for small pups or even docile medium pups.

Thanks! We have 2 6lb and 1 60lb. Probably shouldn't do the 24", but instead the 30". Thinking 2 packs of 8 segments should be tons of space. I'll have to custom make something to go under the stairs, if we want to include the door area. Good to hear about the Amazon basics. I don't need much. Very price conscious (cheapo).

We definitely include the front door inside the fence. That's the rationale for the 30" fence. It runs 16' just under the skirt, behind the steps. About 10' forward and almost to the side garage door. The steps are inside the fence. Then we shape the 32' of 36" fencing about 8' out and down, then back in. Roughly 16' x 8'. Makes walking pups easy as they'll fire out the door any time. No worries about them going anywhere. That said, they understand the back door equals big freedom. We have to keep the garage closed off. They know...

Our pups are quite friendly, but a little stupid. 2 chihuahuas and 4 Japanese Chins. No manners among them. If they get outside the fence...they are on a mission.
Be careful with kids opening the gate when your pups are outside.
Been there and done that. We've had kids of unknown origin come into the trailer looking for the chiwawas...that gets old fast. The chis love it...
The top pic below is Cane Creek Campground in Union County NC. Lots of happy kids at Cane Creek.
The bottom is Tom Johnson's Rally Park in Marion, NC. Both nice campgrounds.
We're heading to Happy Holiday RV Village in Cherokee, NC soon. Also a nice CG.

Verizon's response team spent the night at Grand Ecore RV park near Natchitoches, LA -- on their way to Hammond, LA -- responding to Hurricane Ida.

I got leg whipped to many times to count. Sprung for the 3 sets of 40" fence (8 sections in a set) to form the perimeter. Got the 24" to run along the side of the TT. Carry all 4 sets in the truck and set up area to match the size and layout of the spot. Some of the best money I spent.
Get 10 inquiries a trip about them.

Saw this frame up restoration last week. Built by Spartan Aircraft in 1948.

My grandparents had one like this. Parked in WI. One winter they allowed a hobo to stay with only heat. He painted a forest scene on the outside of the trailer. Turned out he was King of the Hobo's that year and the following two years.

Wish I knew what happened to that trailer.

The 'bago looks like about 1980s vintage.
The Chevy is 1959...so nope.
Someone can fluff my response up, but the Winnebago MH appeared in the '60s. It was an ugly puppy. A square box. But it worked.

Further looking at that picture of the '59 Chevy looks as though the trailer tongue has a lot of weight on it. Must require some sort of custom WDH install?
Looks like a Harley (?) on the tongue, and the '59 is way up onto the trailer. The scoot could go 800-1000 lbs, the front car axle abouInteresting.
The motor home front axle is elevated by the lay of the site. Does not appear lifted. The rear springs don't appear to sag?
Intetesting.
Maybe that scoot is not an HD?

the car does seem set pretty far forward, but the rear ramps would hit it if it was moved any more back. But I don't see a bike on the tong. I see what might be a battery box, but it appears to me to be something in the background, across the street in the other campsite behind the trailer.
