Default Guidance on selecting an Rv- travel with 2 dogs

I am trying to find the right Class B for me., and would appreciate some help. We are 2 people and 2 dogs, and the dogs ride with seat belts, so I need 4 shoulder belts. Ideally I would like 2 seats behind the driver, and a rear bath. Also, I’m looking for a lithium van, with some type of “auto start” which will restart the engine to charge the lithiums. I know it’s not the best to leave dogs unattended, and I plan on having multiple temperature/paging set ups for the rare occasion we may need to leave the dogs. I’m looking for a gas engine, either promaster or transit. I like the additional safety features of the transit, but I’m seeing very few built on transit, and they don’t have the layout or lithium autostart I need. I would appreciate any helpful suggestions regarding brands and models. Really tough right now, as most dealers don’t have anything on the lot. I plan to go to the RV Supershow in Tampa in Jan if it happens, but I’m concerned it will be cancelled. Thanks so much!

Default Interesting...

Our dogs (Labs) prefer to travel on their beds squeezed between the front seats. When weíre traveling they also prefer to sleep with us in bed so we opted for an almost king rear bed instead of a double and a dry bath. Iím thinking you might need to go custom for 4 seated and a dry bath, with sleeping space thrown in.

Perhaps a Travato GL? A bench for 2 behind the driver, lithium/solar. But the bath is at the side. The Travato KL has the rear bath, but only seats three, one of them being sideways and kinda distant from the driver. Either is on a Promaster (gasoline).

We just bought a 2021 Solis Winnebago 59P. It has 4 seats all with 3 point seat belts. We have a 70 pound Golden Doddle (not sure how larger your dogs are) and he rides on his doggy bed between our front seats but he would be fine on the small sofa behind our seats and its right in front of our bathroom. Check it out, we love ours!

Hi. I have a Transit High Roof 350 with 4 belted seats, one behind driver one between closet and kitchen. Li-ion batteries, etc. If that sort of thing interests you, give me a call.
