If I have to travel (non-RV) bedspread goes in the corner then the wife looks as I lift the mattress, when we get home everything gets washed (except for electronics ).

If it were possible she'd bring her own mattress, but I think she just counts on the lysol to take care of everything. Definitely the bed covers come off and go into the closet, and the furniture is not sat upon without a towel underneath.
remote controls, telephones, door knobs, light switches, pretty sure she's got it covered...lol

seem we share a common theme,we like to take dog with us, we don't really care for motel rooms,we've run the gauntlet from super nice and clean to waking up and finding giant water bugs running from the light.
i really don't like staying in big citys but the campgrounds we have stayed at were usually more secure then some of the motels even inside city limits.
and the biggest thing for the dw is she can sleep in while i pack up and drive
i like to get an early start and she thinks noon is getting up early.
she also can't set in one place too long so the mh lets her move around
happy camping

I do not want to start a flame-fest about people traveling with dogs. Seems like we have seen it all. It's really quite simple, keep the puppy's quiet and clean-up after them and everyone is happy! So, happy that everyone will want to come say Hi!
T/J if I may?

Whats the issue with traveling with fur babies? I have 3 and will have a 4th in the spring.
I will be traveling with a Boxer, Mal Shi and a Berger Blanc Suisse. 4th one doesnt travel.
I am a newbie to RV travel and must admit the RV purchase is because I want my fur babies with me when I travel. So what is the dos and donts of RV life with the dogs?
Thank You

There is no issue when traveling with pets (for the pet owners)...My post ended with a "disclaimer" to hopefully stop the possibility of the thread going off-topic. Sometimes, talk about doggies and camping on the forum brings up stories about the impact by the minority of dog owners who do not take care of their pups. Searching these threads, you might read stories about those that never pick-up poop, or they leave the dogs tied to a tree - barking all day, or worse... We've probably all seen these things happen, so I was hoping to avoid a rehash in this thread.

The do's and don'ts of RV life with the dogs are best covered in a different thread - just search for keywords like "pets."

So, back on-topic...RV vs. Motel - If you go to Laughlin, NV, the Pioneer Inn has pet friendly rooms for a pretty good price, but they are not as nice as my RV!

Take care and have fun!

Welcome Fancy.
Many if not most of us travel with our pets. Look down the list a little, we have an entire forum devoted to traveling with your pets.
Clean up after them
keep them quiet
don't let them scare people.

We do both.................83+ days this year in a hotel and 4-5 months in our rv this year for DH work. LOL

We do not take our dog when in hotels and I do not always go with because of that. We do prefer our RV by far as we have our dog and I can cook and scrapbook etc. It’s more like home for us.

We have never found bed bugs in our rooms, but I too travel with Lysol when traveling in hotels.

On the other hand we had lot parties until late at night, generators running next to us, and luke warm water in 3 minute bursts in the showers at the campgrounds we stayed at with our most recent trip. Add in the people playing music on their external speakers or listening to TV's outside the RV and it is anything but peaceful. And then there are the people who start up their diesel engines at 6:00 AM to leave their campsite. We would have gotten a lot more sleep in 99% of the hotels we have stayed at over the years then in these $40 a night RV parks.

We enjoy staying at NFS and BLM and unmarked campsites where there is "primitive" camping only allowed as it is infinitely quieter.
