This thread is really interesting for me, since we're planning to trade the B-van for a trailer in a year or two. I have a question, which has in part been answered, but I'd still like to hear opinions... In the B-van, we leave our cat (Snowball) loose all the time and we have a generator that runs the rooftop A/C when it's warm. When we're on the road, he curls up in the bunk. But how would we deal with the heat in the trailer?
We were thinking, for the trailer setup, we'd get him a large cage, such as one a large dog would use, and put a small litter box and food and water in there along with a bed. We think that'd be great for him. We'd probably keep him in the truck with us. But what about stops? How do you keep him cool during those times? (Getting a diesel and leaving it idle with the A/C on seems like a good idea.)
I guess the other option is putting the cage in the camper while traveling, then opening it up enough that it doesn't get too hot in there...
How do others handle this?
