  1. Good info on this thread! Would the same information and recommendations that I am seeing apply to a Class B RV as well or would other companies and services be a better fit for someone full-timing in a class B?
  2. I don't have any experience or information about this resource except what is contained on the website but this may be of some interest to the folks on this forum. From the HelpX website...
  3. I would like to hear from others about if and under what conditions they have their pets ride in the front seat of their vehicle. I was reading a blog the other day and I came across a picture of a van that had its front seat facing backwards and it looked like that was the way they travelled - allowing the dog in the picture to look out the window, be close to the driver, and have a barrier between it and the front windshield. I am anticipating a purchase of a class B rv and want to employ this idea for Matilda, my australian shepherd mix. Has anyone tried this? Has it worked - to your and the dog's satisfaction? Any ideas from others about this?
  4. I've been frustrated with tying Matilda to a tree or other non-movable object only to have her get all tangled up and having to get up and untangle her. I also don't like it when she sees a squirrel and takes off after it only to reach the end of the line and nearly choke herself. Maybe these are reasons that some would rather leave their dogs off leash. I recently came up with an idea to attach a leash to a heavy, movable object to prevent hurting the dog and allow some mobility at the same time. I placed an eye screw at the end of the handle of a 5 pound sledge and attached the dogs leash to it allowing me to place the dog anywhere around my campsite. She will encounter enough resistance from the weight of the hammer to stop her without any risk of injury. Matilda is a australian shepherd mix of about 35 pounds.
