This is one of the main reasons i bought the Scamp. To tote my dogs. I have 2 border collies and a golden retriever. Hotels frown at them. Campground cabins frown at them. LaQuinta is the best at welcoming my sweet dogs. And they love staying at the KOA Kabins, but they really are getting too pricey for what they are. ie...Myrtle Beach KOA a small cabin with a bathroom for 2 nights the second weekend in July $384. And then pay $10 per dog per night when i get there. Sheesh.

oh my gosh, I was going to be traveling with two standard poodles and now I'm down to one. The key must be that well behaved part

We used to travel with our Standard Poodle and our Portuguese Water Dog and they would lay up on the beds so we had the floor space. They also slept in the back bed with me, while Joe slept on the side bed.

We now have two Miniature Poodles, both ex-show dogs and the boy was a stud dog. The boy will only go over an ex-pen to get to a female in season (is what we have been told). The girl, however, will go over an ex-pen and what we have done is use PVC at the top of the ex-pen and that keeps her in. Apparenly she was not flying over the pen but rather climbing or at the very least pulling herself on that top rail to get over after leaping. With the PVC on the top of all the bars, means that she cannot get a grip any longer to get up and over. We keep the ex-pen inside a dining fly just to make me feel a bit more secure, although they could easily get out of that since it has no bottom.

I do not use dog x-pens. I use a hard plastic Child's play pen met for outside. It is very sturdy and my Chi Chi and poodle stay in it without problems. If you dog is a digger that would be the only draw back since they can did under the pen. These pens come in all heights and sizes, You can buy extension pieces to make it as long as you want. If your dog is a climber, this is not a good solution for you.

Here is another photo for an idea for traveling with dogs when you have a 16' and no screen door. This allows you to open the door and step inside w/o the dog bolting the door and getting loose. We had this set up so it could be slid into place and removed easily. The dogs honored the gate, probably because they could see that if they jumped it, it would get them nowhere.

While I like the idea I know mine would not "honor" the gate. Especially the puppy. The moment the door starts to move that one tries to push the door open and barge through. We have had a few surprises and spent a fair amount of time with treats trying to get ahold of him.

Oh, and I wouldn't trust the screen door - probably just blow through it after a couple tries. We have to get something to reinforce the bottom of our screen door.

Yes, we will be reinforcing the screen door in our new 17' with plexi-glass.

The screen door on my not-a-FG-trailer has a built in 'track' where you can slip a piece of plexi into it. I put the plastic in there to contain my killer 10 pound dog.
