Traveling with a BIG DOG!

Hi, Airstreamer!

We are in our 70s and travel with a Newfoundland. We began with a 2005 Ford 250 and moved up to a GMC Sierra 2500 Diesel. It not only tows beautifully, but it has a lot of room in the back. We do not travel with a third person, so our typical style of folding up the back seat to allow our Bear his own apartment might not work for you. However, one third of the back seat folds on its own, so your daughter could easily ride in comfort. As for traveling with two big dogs, you might want to consider something like a large SUV that allows for the back one-third of the vehicle to be open for the dogs and still allow for air-conditioning and heat.

Hope this helps. Our MPG is good with the GMC. We pull a 2011 34-foot Classic Limited and get 13 MPG. One other asset with pulling an Airstream is that it has one low step for entry. Most trailers have a series of steps. This can become hard for an aging dog

2 Mastiffs and a "noggle"

We have a MBZ GL450 and it works great for our 2 Mastiffs and us. We usually have the second row seats down for our trips but they are just as comfortable when the seats are up, if we're carrying extra gear. We also have a "noggle" to get air to them. It's a venting tube designed to attach to an AC vent. So if you're worried about them getting too hot that is a good option. Our dogs LOVE it on warm days. Think it comes in 2 lengths. I highly recommend them to anyone who travels with pets. And, no I'm not a spokesperson for them, just like the product.
Also have a ramp. Training them early so that when they're older it's something they are used too.
