here are a few. Thanks to all of you who responded. We apologize to

Actually, I liked my extended cab truck. Room for all 3
We travel a lot and at the present have a Class
"B" it is great most of the time but we are looking at a
Class "A" to have more space but it will have to be a small
one. 22/23 feet would be a preference.. still able to get into the out
of the way places but having more space and a Toad would then be more
You forgot to mention trucks as one of your
vehicles. I actually drive a extended cab pick-up, not a car.
For short trip I definitely prefer my minivan (and
am disappointed Nissan/Mercury stopped making it), but for longer
trips where I could take all 4 dogs, I would like a motorhome.
Station wagons aren't just for kids anymore!
A Ford van converted into a camper by Sportsmobile--just
got it so I could travel more comfortably with my dogs.
My AWD wagon allows travel anywhere, in any weather,
which my dog enjoys! She goes everywhere with us. We have outfitted
the back (cargo) area with a blanket and travel bed, as well as travel
bowls, harness, toys, and all other equipment she needs. It is
(literally) her "home away from home" - we have travelled
across the country twice, and many, many day trips. We have even had
to equip the car with a roof trunk (Yakima "SpaceCadet" -

My scottie LOVES her Subaru Forrester! Plenty of
windows and room!
I would love to by a Roadtrek class b motorhome to
go on road trips with my beautiful golden retriever/rottweiler mix.
We especially appreciate the Chevy-Venture minivan. We
recently rented one for a 4,500 mile trip. It was extremely
comfortable, and because we could remove one of the central seats (not
a central bench), our 85 lb. dog was comfortable, as well. We would
have liked a second power outlet for the Nintendo, though.
Our 25 ft. travel trailer is the perfect
"mobile hotel room" for us and our 2 bulldogs! They love it!
Our dog is little, but we both have SUV's to carry all
Yeah, you left off TRUCKS as an option! I have a full
size Dodge Ram pickup truck with a canopy on back. It's a 4x4, and I
have even built a carpeted (for traction) ramp so he can get in and
out of the bed of the truck. We're getting ready for a long road trip
this weekend! The truck is actually my dog's. He just lets me drive
I have a full sized Dodge van and it is the only way to
travel. Enough room
