Pets in the 5er

Some states do allow people to ride in a 5er as long as they have communication with the TV in event of need. Don't believe we will try that one, divorce is sooo costly these days and I do not want the 5er as " home sweet home". I would miss my 55 inch TV

We DO NOT have dogs, we have a cat. I think we are going to try this on our first leg of the trip and check her more frequently at rest areas. We can let her roam in the forward cabin (closed door) where all her necessary supplies are located. Plenty of comfort choices and nothing is there that can fall and hurt her. Besides when we stop, she sleeps in that room 99% of the time so she is familiar with it.

Hate to coop her up in a litte carrier for 6 days!

We have 4 cats and have made 3 trips between FL and NY. They have always rode in the 5er. They throw up when they ride in the truck but not in the 5er. They all take corners of our bed. We stop occasionally and give them time to roam a little. Gives us stretch time ourselves.

We had our cat ride in the TT one time for about a 10 mile trip from the campground to the next stop. I've NEVER seen an animal so freeked out in it's life. He now stays home and our new Dachshund rides shotgun.

i don't think it would be a problem. the more i think about it, i can't imagine it would be that bad in the trailer. i wouldn't worry about CO2 and i wouldn't leave a vent open. unless you got those fancy vent ez cover thingys, it would be an easy way to damage the vent lid. i don't think i would do it in the dead of summer, i would imagine it would get pretty hot in there then.

Here is a good reason not to have your pets in your trailer/5th wheel.

This happened to me!

The trailer rolled, our TV did not. The contents in the trailer were toss all around and would of killed any animal riding in the trailer. Our dogs ride in the TV with us.

Wow, nasty mishap there with the trailer and the TV, happy you were all alright. Is that an SUV in the picture? Also sorry about your TT loss, nice looking unit, what Sprinter is that? Again, very happy you and others were not injured. And yea, 'Lenard' would have definitely been PO'd if that would have happened in our 5Ver! I won't let him see this picture before this years travels start!

No more response!

Our dogs love the truck and that is where they ride. The cats hate the truck but love the fifth wheel. Everyone needs to make their own choices. This is a personal choice. We have talked to the cats about this! No more comment from me.

Talking to the cats....

Yea got that right! Like I've stated earlier, we made our choice for the pet, not us. Best thing we ever did was move 'Lenard' to the 5Ver, it was that or he did not go anymore, stuck without us n' the neighbor visiting ever couple of days back at home... Forget that, nothing wrong with our choice, it's our way.

ummmm, a truck accident can happen just as fast as a trailer incident. this is a risk you take anytime you do anything. i have seen trucks all cracked up and nothing really wrong with the trailer or its contents. not trying to start a fight or anything, just putting my 2 cents in. not to degress here, the OP was just asking what people do, i guess not for their comments, sorry.
