No opinion on putting the dogs in back of the trailer.
Oklahoma will be too hot this time of year without AC. Back of the truck will be too, without shade.

Honestly, the way I'd accomplish this is by running a portable generator and connecting the trailer to it... How you do that safely down the road is going to be up to you.. On a Class-C with a defective onboard, I got creative one summer.

Or just buy the Mega-cab... It's only a few dollars more than a new generator. :-)

Just put them in a Coleman cooler..it'll keep them cool a long time. Duct tape the lid shut.

uh...yeah I'm joking, but I guess I grew up different. Dogs were hunting dogs and not much sentimentality attached to them. My Dad and uncle did field trials and if the dog didn't perform it was gone. Don't bother getting attached to them.
But I do think dogs are more tolerant of conditions than is being worried about here. I can remember Dad putting them in the "turtle shell" of his 1953 Chevy, finding a sandy country road, tying the dogs to the bumper and exercising them before hunting season. In August and September in south Texas.
There are likely several hundred thousand dogs within 250 miles of me laying around outside in 95 degrees the shade all summer.
Put them in the trailer crack a couple windows and give them some water when you stop.

It's not a bad ride in a towed RV. 35 years ago my sister and I rode in the RV through any state that it was legal to do so. We preferred it to riding with the parents (I think they enjoyed the quiet). Of course I also recall riding around on the package shelf in the back of the car in the 70's. Smart lot we were.
