We brought an RV so we could travel and not have to leave our dog. Yep he goes where we go and loves it.

No, we always leave them with a relative.

I don't go anywhere without my dog. But you need to know if your dog can really handle it and behave well. Do they travel well? Behave? Manners? Social? New situations? A vacation with your dog can be a blast, but it can also be a complete disaster if something goes wrong. What if the leash slips out of your hands for even a second? Is the dog going to take off? Does it get carsick? Thunderstorms in a different environment? I'm don't want to discourage you at all, but just realize that if things go wrong far away from home, it can be a lot worse. I defintiely suggest a short overnite trip somewhere close to home as a trial run. As long as your dog is ready for it - have a blast!
