We had 2 80+ pound golden retrievers. We would never have considered putting them in the 5er (when we had a 5er). They were cared for with the same consideration we would give a child...........well for the most part.
Those closed up TTs and 5ers build up heat inside while on the road. Even if you are comfortable in your pickup, they might be heat stressed. And what if you travel with them in the trailer and the weather becomes hotter than planned? Make room for them in the truck.

Do this. Get into your camper and have a friend tow it for an hour or so. Then you will know exactly how your dogs will feel about it.

That area is reserved for the in laws, NOT my dogs.

I've ridden in the back of a TT, it wasn't so bad. That being said, I think they'd be a little freaked out about it. My dogs ride in the car.

I would think it legal as horse trailers are allowed and they are towed also.

Most trailers for towing animals have proper suspension with shock absorbers. Most TT's dont have shock absorbers so i would think if you were at the front of the trailer riding mostly on the trucks suspension i would think it would not be as bad but anywhere from the wheels back must be like a bouncy castle. Guessing the bigger and heavier trailers would be better. Might be opening the door to a green dog.
If you have a 5er and want to keep them in the bed you can still get a good size dog crate under the overhang. Not sure what the turbulance would be like though. I have had the plastic level squares fly out of there once. Never thought that would happen.
I fold up the seats and put big camo blankets (from Cabellas, they are awsome) over the seat and floor so the dog hair removal process later doesnt take two weeks

In the great state of MO humans are allowed to ride in the trailer. We camp with people with disabilities that the DW or DH will ride on bed when they are not feeling the best. Glad we still have personal freedom here in the center of the country. BTW lots of dogs ride in the trailer in this neck of the woods.

Honestly, I wouldn't do it. Now, keep in mind I do have a Jay Flight Swift SLX, so it's pretty small. However, after a trip, anything that is not stored in a cupboard usually ends up getting tossed all over the place. It looks like a tornado hit in there after a road trip. I would just be worried that the dogs would get bounced everywhere.

I agree. I have a 34 foot trailer and anything loose gets tossed all over the place, especially in the rear half of the trailer. And it will get quite hot this time of year.
