We travel with our cat. He is more comfortable on the road in the trailer than in the TV. He finds a nook, and just naps until we arrive. We tried the leash, but it just didn't work - he didn't take to it on a walk. We then put the leash on and tied the loose end to a brick, and just let him hang with us while we were outside. He loves this. He can roam, up to the length of the leash, and we don't have to worry about him wandering off. The leash we tether him to is about 8' long so he has some freedom to move. If he wants more he will drag it, but not far.

I hope this works for y'all.

Our cat does really well on a leash, he is always running with our dogs in our yard and thinks walking with them on a leash is the same thing. Sometimes he stalls if a strange dog barks at him but after being carried for about 20 feet he wants back down with his pals Or course he came home from the pound and the next day took a 4 day road trip in the MoHo.

Trveled with my 25lb Beagle/Jack Russel mix for 5 years when I was full-timing in the MoHo. She used to sleep on the huge flat dash and loved to look out at the upcoming traffic. Stopped a few times a day for the walking thing, and she was a real trooper.

Now that I 'Stream, the pooch stays home with the Mrs. or Mom. Her traveling days are over as she really liked the space in the MoHo and the van just doesn't cut it for her.

Dog in Motorhome

We have a frisky Labrador who likes to travel nose out window. the RV park we have our sites on does not permit leaving the dog behind for any reason unattended.

Our Lab will ride on the shotgun side at our feet and is also happy in a crate. I have zip experience w RV's and a lot of dog experience. I would plan on crating the dog while traveling if riding upfront isn't feasable. My old trainer said "don't let teh dog fail" if it gets into trouble it is usually the owner's fault, not the dog's.

Dick & Genie
We travel with four birds, a cat and a dog. Three of the birds are as social as a Cockatoo. Those three love to see what's going on around them. The other is a Nanday Connure, and he's a "chicken little". Being a prey bird, he is sure that every shadow is after him, so he's covered while travling.

Your bird may enjoy a window seat while traveling, so it can see the sights as they pass by. Three of ours do just that, and will comment when a semi passes us. After awhile, just like kids, the road noise will help them take naps.

The main thing we've done is to make sure they are entertained. They all have plenty of toys to play with, or chew in the case of the Macaw. My wife cooks their treats and that helps them stay fit. While in a park we will let the birds out of their cages so they can sit on our shoulders, or just roam. At night, or when away for the day, we close our blinds to reduce the chance for outbursts.

We have a TT, and place the cages in the front cap area and next to the curbside front window. We took down the valance over that window because our Macaw was trying to taste it when he was on top of his cage. Our thoughts for placing the cages was to make sure that they were close to us while we were awake. All four are social, and really seek out our company, so that was very important. Being in the front also minimized stepping around cages and perches to get somewhere.

I'm not familiar with y'alls layout, but I feel sure that you will find just the right place for your Cockatoo.
