Now retired and pet and kid free. When we go on an excursion we donít have to worry about getting back to the rig. So nice ... But, I do understand that taking a pet along brings some comfort to some. Just keep a good supply of doggie bags handy so I donít have to watch where I step please.

We travel with one Labradoodle pup and two cats. I built a area so the cats can have their own space when the pup gets too active for the cats liking. Otherwise, they all get along well.

Ditto... also I can usually tell when walking inside a coach if animals or smokers were ever present. The smell lingers a long time and some never go away.

Especially if any fabric is around.
We have a removable carpet in our toyhauler, leave it behind and never use it, too much like work unrolling that thing LOL, we are vinyl floor only and that removes stink from wet dog for sure--easy to clean well and fast--plus we are not fabric couch or seats, we are 'pleather?' crap and we can wipe and holds no odor. I think that makes a huge diff. in smell on an rv when older and buying.

Boy oh boy I have walked into some used older units for sale and think...what in the heck is that gosh awful smell? Just years of living I guess, plus food smells can be wild in some and hold just as much as any other smell out there

our case is probably different because we use our motor home for business.
if you buy your coach for resale, whats the reason you use it your self?

yes, animals leave a smell, and hair, but people do too.

when i bought my first motor home, i bought it to use it, i had little thought of resale, because i intended to use it for our enjoyment, and business, not to preserve it for the second owner. i make sure the coach is maintained carefully, and is clean, but we really use it, living in it for months at the time.
i know people have different ideas about how to use their coach, and the care they take of it, but we all know the resale value of a used rv is about the same as a used paper cup. besides, the last motor home we had had 384,000 miles on it. not worth much, even when only 11 years old.
our animals, like our kids, are members of our family. we wouldnt dream of leaving them at home for months at the time.
