Just a gate or do you need more of a fence? If you get a fence get at least 32" high if not 40" high. The 24" ones will be pointless before the dog is trained.

For gates, we use the spring tension walk through gates. Our dogs are now 3 and 1 so gates are mostly all down, but we've keep them as we expect our kids will have kids or dogs coming along. Gates with extensions are great as you can adjust to various locations.

Congrats on the pup. What did you get?

Congrats on the new puppy! Tell us about him.

Where do you want to use the baby gate? You posted in the Toy Hauler board - do you want it for the trailer small door, the ramp door, or your house?

I hava a couple of these and have been very happy.

The main gate let's you walk through instead of having to climb over or move it. The small door allows the cats to get through (I have one who isn't a jumper, so this comes in very handy).

Whem my Tornado-dog was little, he was able to go through the small door. And since he has a very thin build, he didn't grow too big to do so until he was about 9 months old. During that time, I kept the small door closed.

It's our third dog this one's a rescue we're keeping her. Yes, I have a Toy Hauler it's not my first rodeo with a dog and a Toy Hauler, but this dog is nuts over squirrels. The use for the baby gate would be for the RV small door. This dog is two years old sixty pounds Pit mix Lab, German Shepherd.

We used the Regalo baby gates. But with the door in the RV it might be tough to find that isn't to wide. For the exterior doors you might look into using some these Banister Adapter Y-Spindle Rods as they don't get knocked over as easy if they wrap around a door frame.

I think the narrowness of the RV door may be hard to fit.

One thing I would say to do for certain is replace the screening in the door for this screening

It holds up much better to a dog pushing/pawing at it than regular screening.

I've been away for some time as well, hope you've been riding/racing some, me not so much this year.

I just did a quick Amazon search and found this:

Looks pretty adjustable
