My wonderful Manx cat Bob LOVED to travel in our motorhome. We did
over 200,000 miles together.
He'd detect when we were getting ready for a trip and would guard the
door out to the motorhome. Before we took him out, one of us would
put a harness on him. He ran free in the MH, his favorite place being
the passenger side dash.
He'd never try to exit the MH so no leash when we got out for gas or
snack breaks. He LOVED to be around us at the campsite. There I used
a lightweight 20 tether and one of those screw-into-the-ground anchors
to tether him to.
Some photos, many of him camping with us.
