No dog at present, but both were always "bed dogs with me". The newcomer will be the same too.

Richard - Rolo looks so so so so comfy there, I might just join him!

@ some of the photos

Thanks for your input.

We've always made it a rule that Tess doesn't get on any furniture that a human uses, so she'll have to stay on the floor somewhere.

I'll continue my search ...

Mind you, I did see an Autocruise Augusta (a bit old and tatty) which had plenty of floor space. Expensive, though

At home, with the daughter!

Our two are far too B-I-G to even contemplate taking away in the motorhome.

We had the same problem when we changed van. Pip, our Border Collie just loves to be under something. In the last van her bed was under the fixed pullman table.

Unfortuntaley for Pip the new van does not have a fixed table and no obvious place to keep her out of the way when using the van. we settled for the large square shower tray in the back of the van. Sounds strange but her bed fits in nice and she feels secure in there even when travelling. Its got the added bonus of easy to keep clean. We remove the bed and spray down the shower walls

That had occurred to me. I remember someone (maybe you?) posting this idea before.

Tess isn't that bothered about being under something. She sometimes clunks down in the kitchen area as it's about the biggest piece of floor area in the van.

She sleeps -

When travelling, either (i) on the passenger seat with a blanket and a harness or (ii) in a dog bed between the passenger and drivers seat or (iii) on a cushion under the table behind the passenger seat, a bit like your first photo.

In the evening, before I go to bed, she sleeps on a cushion under the table behind the passenger seat.

When I go to bed, she sleeps on the bed with me - my Adria has a high bed, which is a bit of a problem, as I need to lift her up and down. When I rented a Chausson Welcome, she could jump up and down herself, which made it easier.

I agree - don't buy a van which has such a big pedestal that it loses dog bed space. Dogs come first, surely?
