Your pooch travels in comfort with Doggy Backseat Platform


Doggy Backseat Platform

By Bob Difley

I don’t travel with nor currently possess a pet (dog, cat, or bird) but I have had all of them at one time in my life and realize their importance to many RVers as companions on their road-wandering travels. But I also know that your canine friends would rather be outside running than cooped up in a vehicle for long periods if they weren’t made comfortable.

So most pet owners that I know try to create a comfortable and safe (six states currently have laws that require all pets be restrained while traveling in a vehicle) environment for their pets when they travel. One RVer, Jim Holmes (no relation to Sherlock), went a step further and invented/created what he calls a Doggy Backseat Platform for his pooch – and it turned out so well that he is now selling them to other pet owners.

The platform comes in three sizes to accommodate almost any size tow/toad, the largest of which will support a 250-pound Goliath.


  • Only 3 bolts needed to assemble
  • platform locked in place
  • Your dog can’t fall into foot well
  • Dog can move around on platform
