Traveling with pets

...Is there a way to keep pets out of a Class C's cab, while driving? Maybe something like the netting type of barrier to keep pets back from the front seats of an SUV? I have a couple of cats and would prefer not to have to load them into carriers for even short trips. I think they would likely just lay down once we got moving.

Our German Shepherd likes to get on the dashboard when we leave her in the motorhome, so I wedge a child gate between the driver & passenger seats. While this works for us, a smaller cat might find other spaces to squeeze through, or even jump over a gate. But, just maybe the gate would work. A basic, expandable, wood gate is not very expensive.

I have 4 small dogs and I started out using a piece of carpet covered plywood. Overtime they have been trained that they can't get through that to the cab so now I can just use my light weight pop out windshield sunscreen and that provides the same visual barrier and they no longer try to come into the cab. Cats would be different because they can climb and jump.

We found an old wooden milk crate, put four small feet on the bottom and it fits perfectly between the two seat keeping our pooches out. Acts as a great storage for iPads, books. Wife even found an old wooden serving tray and velcros to the top so we have a place for other items while traveling.

We never take our two cats with us. All they do is fight. But when I go inside the MH to do something there is the male cat jumping on the dinette and snoozing away, is that a sign that we should take him with us? He's pushing 10 years in age.

We take two cats with us everywhere. When traveling they are in large travel cases. When camped they love to watch the new views out the windows and readily find the new sunny spots for snoozing. They do not go outside at home or when with the MH.

How about a trunk/cargo net like this: https://smile.amazon.com/Vehicle-Eco...k+tailgate+net

Put it behind the driver/passenger seats so the kitties can't get in.
