My husband and I are looking into getting a travel trailer in the next year (hopefully) for weekends. One thing I completely agree with is having a crate with you. I know I can trust my older female out for a couple hours at home but I don't know how I'd feel about trusting her in a travel trailer. I think she'd do fine but I'm also iffy. My male on the other hand.... until I can trust him to sleep out of his crate at night without becoming Mr. Destructo, would be crated any time we stepped out and couldn't take the dogs with.
Also agree with getting some alarms for the door(s) just in case.
And make sure your RV is heater/AC equipped. Those RVs can collect heat pretty quickly and you don't want to leave your dog in a hot RV.
Also don't forget to try and plan your trip ahead of time. There are some RV parks and campgrounds that don't allow large dog and/or don't allow certain breeds. Also check state and local breed guidelines as well. Most places will be fine but some are just odd about it.
I did a lot of camping with a friend and their dogs when I was younger (one was a white GSD the other a Rottweiler) and there were some hassles because of the dogs but nothing major.
