Our 17 pound Lab/Spitz travels with us and loves camping. In fact we put her on a leash outside when loading because she wants to follow in and out as we load the camper. My suggestion would be to personalize your camper with your dog's things, and by all means feed her inside to get her use to it. Because we kept kicking the water bowl, I finally came up with the idea of a small bowl of water placed into a large bowl of same design. Now if we bump it, the water will be contained in the larger bowl.

I have the same problem as shroomer, because my labradoodle does not like the bare metal steps...carpet or a roofing shingle would help him with more confident footing.  Since he's getting on in years, I might even look into modifying with a double step...with secure carpet.
   Otherwise, once he's in, he's super happy on his bed in front of the fridge of my cousin's 179, a perfect fit for him.

Carpet on the step(s) helped our dogs a lot.

I have an English Bulldog, he is a little heavy. I have a small step that allows him easier access to bed, yes he can sleep on bed:)
