dog friendly and safe motorhome models?


We're new to this site and motorhomes.

We used to have a Globecar Trendscout campervan but found it very cramped as we have a border collie who travels everywhere with us.
To be honest, I'm struggling to understand why no manufacturer has come up with a good layout that accommodates floor space for a dog, and ideally a secure dog cage so our pampered pouch can travel safely. I've got dozens of designed flying around my head to cater for most scenarios!
And while we're about it, with more floor space I might be able to make enough room to do yoga (no I'm not doing it outside as we mostly travel during the winter months).

Anyway, so we're thinking of upgrading to a motorhome such as a benimar-cocoon-485 and "adapting" it.

Finally my question, how easy is it to remove the fitted furniture and "make good" the hole?

With the benimar-cocoon-485 we'd remove the bench seat between the front passenger seat and the side door and fit a dog cage with a doggy day bed next to it. Hopefully with the table & cage temporarily removed I can do a mini yoga session

Alternatively we're looking at either a chausson-welcome-i-778 or a BURSTNER-viseo-i720 and removing the main double bed (and we'd sleep in the lift bed) at the rear of the motorhome and fit the dog cage there keep the rest as clear floor space for yoga.


Thanks in advance,
