It was done with great regularity when we were kids but also we rode in the bed of half tons, rode bicycles and motorcycles without helmets, skied without helmets and a whole lot of things the nanny state pushers have made illegal.

It is another aspect that the youth of today will never experience.

Here's how three of our six cats ride. These are the three Japanese Bobtails, the one on the far left also walks on a leash. Our other three cats will go behind a chair or on a couple beds we put on the chairs.
But, we would NEVER put any of our pets in a TT, just too rough a ride.

I think she was kidding about riding in the trailer. She gets around just fine on her broom.

I just joined this site, and as an owner of 4 dogs and 3 cats who are my pseudo children, and the new owner of an RV, I am glad that I read about the "test" run by someone's brave wife. Thank you! I won't be putting my "kids" back there, now that I know how noisy/bouncy it is.

Welcome to IRV.

Yes its a bad idea to let your Feline and Canine friends ride back there, however the general consensus is that its OK for Mother in laws. Whats your thoughts on that?

BTW Nice that you can take your cats with you, we tried but we had a scare when G.C. (Godzilla Cat) bolted at Ikego camp grounds. fortunatley he did not bolt far, but DW nixed taking him with us after that so I have to get Cat Sitters whenever we travel.

I was thinking a bait and switch kind of thing tell her we are doing this or that, asking her to look at the fornt of the truck and then wehn she is looking at it, tie her to the front bumper Of course I need follow up plans for further baits and switchs to keep getting her to step in front of the truck, so I can tie her to the bumper...... Ideas are welcome

A hammock stretched between two conveniently located posts either side of the front of the truck?

Now in an attempt to totally derail this thread, I am now giving out forum cookies to those who submit a great idea on how to get the MIL strapped to the front of the truck.

Forum Cookies issued by me are that are redeemable any time you visit Japan, they include but are not limited to a free pick up at Narita or Haneda Airport and transportation to the base where your loved one resides

However, if you bring your MIL, I will probably test your suggestion at that time Thanks to Possum for a great Idea on how to entice the MIL to the front of the truck.

That's funny! We have four dogs. On short day trips the two Jack Russells and the pug ride in the back of the truck, and the cairn/ Chihuahua that we call a Machuihui, rides inthe cab. On long trips the pug gets to ride up front too.
as for riding in the trailer, tried it once when we had too much gear to carry. There was a lot of sea sickness I never want to endure again (Our puppies ride and sleep in Kennels).
