Our German Shepherd loves the R-Pod. She does refuse to use the step, though, and jumps right from the ground into the camper or from the camper to the ground. She quickly claimed the dinette bed as hers and patiently waits for us to put it down to a bed and put a sheet cover on the cushions before she jumps up for night time.

Be sure to wrap the step with one of those carpet step covers. Buddy caught a claw in one of the slots and tore it off. Bled all over!

Since Colt revived this old thread Tongue, I actually read it!  
+8 in the carpet on the metal steps.  My older Golden doesn't like walking on metal that is empty underneath.

On the spilling water bowl, we picked up a Collapsible bucket (not this one) at Grocery Outlet.  If you just open it halfway, there's a bowl at the bottom with a moat around it to trap water, and high walls to block splashing.
