Well, I can’t disagree whether it’s true or not. Wish I could remember where I read it but it’s been years ago. Might have been on a Jayco forum. But I see your point because I see Class A’s traveling with vent cracked also.

They are ANIMALS. Animals get hauled in trucks, trailers, what have you all the time.

I'd rather have them in a travel trailer than 50 or so crammed into a van as most of the "puppy mill" transporters do!

This is a loaded question and opinions vary on what is “humane” for a pet of course. However common sense should prevail here. I personally wouldn’t put my dog in the trailer because my trailer rides rough as indicated by where forgotten loose unsecured items end up when we get to our destination. Plus we vacation where and when it’s hot outside.

The OEM suspension on travel trailers is a a slight step up from the covered wagon. Plus the play at the hitch can cause sway and residual bounce.

I’d say it would be a rough ride for a pet.

I checked into the legality of it a few years go and it wasn’t illegal in any of the states we were traveling and not sure if any In the US have it in the books. There are laws against it abroad though.

Watch this:

Then decide how you feel about putting Fido in the camper. Sure, the trailer was too big for the SUV, yada yada. My point is these things almost always flip or disintegrate in an accident.
