Great to see so many of us on here! My DH posts under his own and I obviously have my own sign-in. We are usually interested in different subjects but do a lot of reading of posts to each other.

We travel with our 3 cats. One loves the drive, the other 2 tolerate it. When we are set up, they check out the scenery from various windows. They are indoor kitties but we travel with harnesses & carriers in case of emergency.

We have the Splendide washer/dryer setup. It came with the rig. I'd prefer a stacked unit, but have learned to use it. I like having it in the rig & not having to use the laundryrooms. Some are great, some not so much.

DH is retired Navy so we like to use the military cgs. Also have Passport America that sure comes in handy as we travel.

I've learned so much from the posts. Great ideas & even some laughs. I hope to meet some other fellow irv2ers as we travel!

We are two lady campers in our sixth season of enjoying the outdoors and traveling in an RV. I do the maintenance, cooking and outdoor set up, spouse does the cleaning and indoor set up. We have a lot of fun, and look forward to every trip. We won't be home on any weekend until mid-October!

Hi. I'm new to the group, just bought my RV in February. Being a single woman, I get lots of looks but I'm rather proud of this uniqueness! I'm still working so I'm taking RV trips on weekends and vacation time. I plan to retire in about 20 months and plan to do a cross country trip. My dog already goes with me now but I'll need to take my cat with me on the cross country. Any tips for long term travel with my kitty?

We full-timed with 2 cats and a St. Bernard. One of the cats would hide as soon as the engine started, vomit after about 15 minutes of travel and then only come out once we stopped- the other would sleep on the dashboard while we traveled along and periodically come over to the driver's seat and drape herself over my arms and the steering wheel (not a good idea, actually).

They're all different, but they all get accustomed.

Looks like there are a lot of us here!

We've never taken our cats but thought about it. I'd be afraid we'd not get the door closed and they'd get out and we'd never see them again. I've seen several cats in RVs and out on leashes over the years we've been camping.

We purchased our "new to us" MH in July of last year. I've been reading on here quite a bit. Trying to learn. At my house I'm the maintenance guy! Have our first big trip planned this summer when we take grandkids to Yellowstone. Looking forward to retiring so we can really travel. I drive some. I drove a school bus for a few years so I'm good with that. And I love my stacked washer/dryer, not so much the splendide we had in the TT.

Welcome aboard everyone. Great to see the ladies as this is a big forum with a lot of subjects. I wish my cat could go with us too. I also worry about her hiding in bad places and numerous ways to have her disappear. I am not in the RV much. She's a true scardy cat. I think I will have to pick my trauma, keeping her home or traveling with us!;0.

We knew a gal, Roby, who was single and camped often. She would even drive to the beach locally for the weekend just to have a true weekend off.

We are also heading to Yellowstone this year. We will be picking up our Daughter and two grandsons at the airport in Bozeman and then staying in W. Yellowstone in July. Can't wait as we do not get to see them very often since they live on the other side of the country. Enjoy your time with your grands.

Good Morning Ladies,


For you people with cats. I am animal lover. Saw a video once on these people who traveled with two cats. They did NOT want the litter box smell and gravel up top in the MH so they came up with an interesting alternative.


Under their table there was a basement storage bay they didn't really need for storage. They hired some guy to drill a hole from under their table into the basement storage. They had him build a ramp down into the basement bay. They also had him build a door (like on a crate or cat carrier) that they could access from the outside so they could clean the litter box that was stored inside the basement bay


The outside basement door was left on but the crate door was just inside of this. He built a box type thing over the hole under the table. It had a door. When they were moving in and out of the MH they could shut the cats down inside the bay to keep them from getting out and escaping. It also is a nice dark place for your cat to hide if they are scared.


When you are sitting outside (this was on the passenger side) the basement door can be up and the cats can sit down there and be by you and get fresh air. They said the cats enjoyed having this open all the time so they could check out their area.


Maybe this would be an answer for those of you with cats. Lynne

None of my cats have enjoyed car rides...but they want to claim the Moho as their territory when it is being loaded/unloaded. We don't have room for 2 cats, dog, and 2 of us in ours...so cats stay home when we go. Not sure they would want to be in the Moho if it were moving anyway....

Hi, I guess I am also a lurker. Many of the posts I find too technical for my interests, and many relate to motor homes. We have a fifth wheel and boondock for 6 months on BLM land in Arizona so I only come to this site a couple of times a month to catch up

Paul and Lorraine,


Under Forum there is a boondocking forum and under RV Forum is a fifth wheel forum.
