We camped with two twenty year old cats and our 4 yr. old Golden Doodle for 10 weeks starting the second week in January of this year. Everyone got along fine. We purchased an enclosure for the cats, but they didn't like it so we just tied them outside on occasion. One didn't want to go out much as all. The other would go out for a few hours about every other day. Our cats are half Siamese. We were in a 21RS and are now looking for a bigger trailer. Everything went fine, everyone got along great, I guess there was an unspoken truce. Generally the Doodle (Isabella) likes to "herd" the cats and sort of pester them on occasion. The 21RS is fine for trips of perhaps 2 weeks and shorter, but is not so great for Sun Birds. Psychologically you just want a little more space for the long term. Otherwise, we had a great time. We stayed at three campsites all told.
I used to have a small company while working at the University of Wisconsin and I would sometimes sell things to the university in Saskatoon.
In those days you had to type your invoices on 3-M mulit layer paper to create invoices with a typewriter. I used to love addressing things to Saskatoon,Saskatchewan. I always thought that was a heck of a name. I would like to know who thought that one up!

We have not tried it with our cat Bastet but my SIL & BIL travel with their two cats. The cats love it and are very well behaved. Mostly they are on a leash when outside except at the family campground my FIL built for us. There they are allowed to roam free providing they come in before dark.
We took our two cats on a 7 week camping trip this summer. No issues at all. The one was ok with driving in the truck, the other took about an hour to calm down on the driving days. We keep our cats in the trailer, they don't roam outside. We did have one climb the screen door and jump onto the roof of the trailer.

It mainly depends upon what trip you are planning to have and whether your destination is pet friendly. Always check the weather before you go out. It is advisable not to take your cat outside during extreme weather conditions and consider the length of your cat’s coat before you go out. If your cat is a hairless breed or has fine light coloured hair then he may need a sunscreen.

Been camping with our two cats for years, We have an enclosed litter box and use corn cob clumping litter, we find its easier to sweep up and controls the smell better than clay litter. We have a wired dog cage that is big enough for the 2 of them and the litter box that we put in the back seat of the truck while we travel and they seem good in there for the long trips and put them in a smaller cage for the shorts trips. Biggest thing I worry about is the kids leaving the door open and them getting out cause they are in door cats. We just got a small dog that will be joining us in our travels as well.
