Camping with bunnies

Hello all, I am a first time bunny mommy (just got her about 3 weeks ago) I rescued her from our local humane society, she's a 5 month old lionhead and very cute. We go camping often in the summer and out next planned camping trip is in September. We will be gone for 3 days. I already have a playpen for her to go outside in and a purchased a different cage so that she has a "house" in our trailer for when she's inside (her cage isn't transportable). I'll be bringing her things from her "home" cage into her "camping" cage so that she has familiar things around.

Is there anything else that I need to know or can do? Has anyone else taken their buns camping before, can offer advise?

Thanks

Bunny camping

I have taken my rabbit camping twice and I absolutely LOVE it! She's a load of fun to have outdoors, only a few key things to remember.

1) Heat kills rabbits. What we consider a little too hot is death by heat stroke, make sure your bunny has lots of water, unlimited shade and cool places to rest.

My bunny liked to sit under my truck (I camp in a tent.)

2) Predators! Bears, wolves, dogs, there are lots of things that might like to sniff out your bunny!

I let Spur out on a 15 foot nylon "leash" so she had free roam to get from kennel to shade to food on her own, but never out of eyesight.

She sleeps with me in the tent then I let her roam about in the day.

Rabbits + camping is such a wonderful experience for them, and having them around can be a treat to watch!

My spur sits around the campfire watching the flames flicker. I keep her in a medium sized dog kennel with her leash on always, and she'd sit in there or under my truck. She loved to sniff around and nibble the earthy delights!
