Speaking of pets...

Anyone here travel with their pets in the TT?
If you do how do you keep them cool in warm weather?

Any other suggestions?

Many campgrounds will not allow you to leave an unattended animal all day, even inside your unit. It's not fair to those around your unit, or to the animal. If your planning on taking a day trip, and can't bring the animal along, you may want to check into accommodations for the animals at shelter or pet resort. Best to be prepared beforehand.

I have not, but am thinking about it. I think for short trips it will be fine, 1-2 hrs, depending on temp. For longer trips would not be ok, if it's hot.

I am interested in thoughts as well. I know our dog would be much more comfortable in the TT than the truck.

I have put him in the bed when I had a cap, used a 12v fan running on him with windows open. He always did very well that way.

Yeah, I had side widows with screens I could open and a 3 plug 12v outlet in the bed. Bought a 12v fan. Used that and would check periodically. Never panting. He is a 75 lb chocolate lab.

I would NEVER put my dog in the RV while travelling down the road. I have seen what has happened sometimes to simple things, such as a pot or something that is not tied down. Too dangerous, far, far too dangerous for anyone or anything in there. Backseat of the truck with a harness is the safest spot for any dog.
