Or, get your son a big tent and let the dogs sleep with him "for security."
Seriously, we pull with a pickup and have a cap on it, primarily so there's a "mobile kennel" for the dogs - especially during the day. It gives them a place to be off leash, and keeps them out of the way inside the trailer until bedtime... Or if they are good dogs and don't bark much, and the weather isn't too cold, they can even sleep in the truck. (My brother uses a kennel/cage, with a quilted cover that keeps his big lab pretty toasty no matter what.)
Congrats on the new Casita
- have a blast !
