We have done a couple trips, only one with both dogs and both cats. The cats crawl under the seats in the car and hide most of the time while driving. The pups sleep on the back seat or sit up on the doors watching the cars go by.

When we get to our destination they all go into the camper. The cat have a few nooks and crannies around our bed they can get into. The pups plop on the cool floor under the bed or jump up and lay in the middle of the bed.

Litter box stays in the shower. We use feline pine. It gets bagged and tossed in a trash can. Food and water live under the dinette most of the time.

I am looking into converting one of the storage areas for pet uses..

That's one of the few non-mineral litter materials... it's wood. Feline Pine

They have both non-clumping (as I would expect) and clumping (a surprise to me) versions.

I realize that this does not apply directly to one of our trailers, but in our motorhome I cut an access hole from the side wall of the entry steps into the adjacent under-floor storage compartment. I put a common cat door on it, and the compartment is used as the cat bathroom - it contains their litterbox, waste litter bucket, and fresh litter supply. I clean out the litterbox from outside through the convenient access door; litter never enters the RV living space.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Absolutely correct.....we used a storage bin..cut a door with tin snips and used the lid during transit. The high walls are in case you have a high pee'r. The lid can be used as long as it doesn't interfere with the cat doing it's business...this keeps the dust down.

There is a couple storage cubbies on the Egg that are hard to get to without a) picking up the bed and scooting on my bum or b) cutting an access door in the outside wall. I may still cut an access door to make one of them more useful, but the other may just be turned into a hide away for the pets.

The litter box only comes out when we shower or poop. No way am I having one of the stink bombs my cat lays wake me up!
