We travel with 4 adult cats (ya, I said 4) and after getting use to having your own built-in sirens for the first two hours of travel it's not bad. We have two 3 foot long canvas show cages (they have a center zip up divider if needed and mesh windows all around) that sit (strapped) on both couches. We chose these because they will bend just enough to get them out the main door in case of emergency. We have the LARGE litter box inside the cabinet that was designed for the washer/dryer and a fabric curtain covering it. You may want to put a pencil or other object under the rocker switches that are on your (drivers) side control panel since our cats have a bad habit of walking up that sloped surface to get to the dash. One morning we got up and were told by our camping neighbors that the parking lights were on all night. I also agree with the others about stuffing towels in every hole you can find especially under the dash. Gotta love cats, have fun.
We added a rescue kitty to our "pack" this year, and discovered the joys and challenges of RVing with a cat. The litterbox issue was easy, thanks to the bath-and-a-half floorplan; we just put the litter box in the rear bath, and leave the slider open enough for a cat (but not our dogs) to squeeze through.
He did find hiding places we never knew existed, though. We found out early on that he could crawl up under the bed, and thus in where all the bed slide mechanism lives ... could have been a disaster. So we always put him in his carrier before moving any slide, and made heavy cardboard kitty-blockers to cover those holes before we let him out. He also found a path to climb up under the dash somehow (and can still get there now that he's full-grown), so we block that too.
We also have to leave the front shade up enough for him to come and go from the windshield area, where he suns himself. Before we learned that, he got stuck up there for hours -- lucky it wasn't a sunny day, or he could have been cooked!
Last but not at all least, he finds leather captains chairs very attractive for claw exercise. Still looking for adequate chair covers, but for now we cover them with blankets and take extra scratching posts. Good thing he's so lovable ...

why does your dog go into the cat litter box? Never heard or seen that deal?
I use HD arm+hammer double clumping cat liter and works great.No smell,no mess
leave it in Bedroom closet.Out of sight and works well for us.5 years doing this
just cant leave The door too wide or dog will eat the cat food when we go out
My kitty cat was showing interest in the driver cockpit floor area and the underside of the dash. I used some door screen, cut to fit the open dash area, hook/loop closure to hold it in place. That, and a can of scaat placed right next to the acclerator (when parked) keeps him out of trouble. What is scaat? It is a motion sensor can of compressed air, when the cat approaches, he gets a harmless shot of air. The can is now empty, but the cat just looks at the can and walks away. Great, can be bought on Amazon or any pet store.

We keep the litter box in the shower and have a bracket that holds the shower door open enough to let the cat in and keep the two standard poodles out. We use Tidy Cat Breeze litter in a litter box that drains any liquids onto an absorbent pad and any solids remain in the litter. The litter itself is a ceramic pellet that is about a 1/4 inch in diameter and about a half inch long. There is little or no litter tracking. The pads last for at least a week.
We traveled with 2 cat and a dog. All 3 have now passed on. We have another cat. We keep the litter box under the bathroom sink vanity, put down plastic runner material and keep only one door open all the time. The only way to keep the dogs out is to install a temporay panel in the vanity botton behind the doors to allow the cat to enter and the dog not to. It could be your dogs will behave well enough and not get into the box. Our dog did not. The dogs will probably do as they do at home with the cat box.
You can buy one of those fancy boxes but daily cleaning and deordorizing products, whatever you use at home will take care of the problem.
