Some states allow individuals to ride in the trailer when it is being towed. TN. is one of them.

People can ride in travel trailers in Minnesota. We recommend children be handcuffed to separate beds; otherwise they hang out the back window and wave at following truckers. They also like to bounce from side to side and cause the trailer to sway. Then dad has to pull over and administer corrective discipline.

(only the first statement is true)

We always travel with our 2 beagles and have never been turned away from a campground or state park. They have never been allowed in our trailer. They have always traveled and slept in our Suburban - one in his crate, one on a blanket. However the Suburban has now been replaced with a truck. We just had a cap put on for the dogs - windows that open and have screens! Quite an expense just for the dogs but.... They know when we are getting ready to go camping and go outside and sit next to the AS so as to be sure they don't get left behind!!
Happy trails.

Great idea- thanks! We can get her a cage- Trouble is- being an outside dog all the time, except for periods during the day, I dont think she is house broken.
Really, everyone, I'm not going to torture my dog in the trailer- first thing she would probably do is pee, from fright. Neither dogs are used to going anywhere in the car. Even the vet comes here- with as many animals as we have it's just easier.
Thanks, silver suz P>S> anyone know how to housebreak a 9 yr old dog? She looks like a black lab but weighs 50 lbs, and hates water, and her name is "Orca". (There's irony in that!) Thanks again. : )

All dogs are individuals, but ours is also primarily an outdoor dog that is allowed in the house. We never 'trained' him and he never asks to go out
but will if someone else goes outside, or when the alarm goes off in the morning and I am getting up anyway. He's never messed in the house or when left alone in the trailer (we've never left him alone in there longer than it takes to go out for dinner). Then again, he's never chewed or torn up anything either (except for a bag of danishes I left out on the counter once - even then he left the bag intact and hoovered up all the crumbs).

If your dog is well mannered, I wouldn't worry about it too much - they know their boundaries. We got a large airline kennel, secured it in the truck bed with straps, lined it with a thin lawn chair cushion, and he prefers it to being loose in the cab of the truck. When we stop for a rest break, he gets out too, but rarely needs to relieve himself. My only concern with this perfect pet is that he will go at least 3 days without going No. 2. He loves to travel and doesn't act like he is in distress so I let it go, although I always carry a baggie along 'just in case'.

I'd be more concerned about whether she likes to take rides, enjoys new experiences, and/or she gets car sick. She can learn to like the first, therapy for the second (kinda joking there), and there are pills for the third, your call.

Unlike some people, most animals will not willingly soil their living space.
