We are building kennel space for three dogs under the bed in our AS right now. It should be done in another week or so. I'll post pictures when done.

Thumbs up

A folding exercise pen has always come in handy over the years....

I have 2 - one is about 85 lbs, the Aussie is about 50 lbs (he's starting a diet)...

I've got a very large folding metal crate that really doesn't fit anywhere except in the "hallway" - I pop them in there as needed when I leave the campsite so they can lounge in comfort. When we get back the crate gets puts away. At night they know their place is on the floor (or sometimes up on the bed with the kids who don't mind being squished by a couple of giant furballs one bit).

sounds like you need a basecamp w/ police car-style metal wall barrier... or another trailer all together

we are 'building in' carriers for 2 of 3 parrots - they will sit on a counter and have metal hooks for bungee'ing them in ... best i could come up with to keep the trailer flexible should we need the space or not need the carriers.

Duke the little guy on the couch and Duchess on the floor let us stay in the Airstream as long as we did not get in their way.

OK, so it took a bit longer than a week.
The crate are now built in. Check out the pictures on the blog. The bed platform is the next step.
crates are done! | Airstream 7078

Here is one of the dogs testing it out.

I would carpet all sides (including the top and bottom) and attach that carpet with Velcro to the wood. This way you can remove the carpet and wash. I have yet to find a dog that has never smelled.

Built in crates

When you get them finished, and anyone else who has done so, please, please post pics. I am getting ready to design built in ones as well. My girls are 45lbs, 50 lbs, 70lbs, and 85lbs- and evey one long legged! (greyhound mixes and dane mixes.) I would dearly, dearly love to see what everyone else does.
For those of you whose dogs do not eath through canvas kennels- try "Dog Digs" brand. They collapse down into a sleeve like a camp chair. THe large size is 24wide x36 long x 30 high. Having big kennels you can just sling over your shoulder and go is great! Or, train the dogs to carry their own

One of my customers here, a local car dealer, also has several medium-sized show dogs. They have completely rehabbed a mid-1970's Sovereign with kennels through both sides in the middle of the trailer, from about 3 feet behind the main door through the area formerly occupied by the closets in the bathroom area. The bathroom facilities are intact, and there is a "people area" from 3 feet behind the main door forward, which includes a small fridge, two-burner stove, bed/couch, and storage for clothing. Storage for doggie items are built under the kennel space, and in the overhead compartments where the beds used to be. Next time it's in, I'll see if I can snap a couple photos of the interior.

Love other multiple pet owners!!

We have just purchased our second Airstream, a 34' Limited Classic. We will be traveling and living with our four Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and one Moluccan Cockatoo. We are looking to remove the rear bed and two night stands, build-in four crates, top them with a platform for the bed and reinstall the night stands. Perry, our cockatoo, will have a sleeping cage somewhere and spend most of his time out on a perch in the trailer. Wow, any other suggestions are greatly appreciated. We hadn't planned on traveling yet, but work dictates long stretches away from home for the next few years. I'll be with the animal menagerie during the day and joined by the hubby at night. Let the adventure begin!

Setblaster- let us know how it goes- I considered that once, but was wondering how well the AC would reach there. Would love to see pics when you're done.

Simply replaced an under bed storage door with hinges and a BBQ grill that fit. Small crate, small dog.
