Traveling with gators?

I have a young gator 15in long. He is perfect he does not mind being handled and will eat right after being handled. I have heard some gators get stressed and go off food for a little after being handled. My question is every week my job takes me away from my house for a 3 day period. When I am gone usually a family member would take care of my gator. Can I take my gator with me. The trip is a one hour trip and I can set up his tank at the place I stay at as soons as I get there. Is this safe to do every week? I must mention again that my gator is really tame, and healthy. Any advice would be very appreciated. Thanks!
