Default Cold weather camping.

My wife and I just completed a last minute tour through the Rocky Mountains in Alberta. We left Fort Saskatchewan and stayed Saturday, Sunday and Monday in Jasper. Travelled down the Columbia Icefields Parkway and stayed in Banff until Thursday. Had a great time even though the Campgrounds are full. Last couple of nights were cool -3 Celsius. Trailer was warm and comfy. What's the coldest any one has stayed in their RV. Our 2015 210uds seemed to perform well. No issues even when we woke up with snow on the ground.

How fun! Hubby has always wanted to go to Banff. Coldest we stayed was last Christmas 18ļF. Wasn't bad until the wind started blowing.

My idea of cold weather camping is no lower that 35 degrees F. Part of the problem is that my camper has all tanks below the floor insulation which makes them susceptible to freezing.

We have yet to camp in cold weather in the fun finder. Hope the insulation is enough for at least 25*....

A few weeks ago we stayed in Yellowstone and the overnight temps dropped below 40 degrees a few nights. We used a small electric heater to save gas and the furnace only to a limited amount. It kept us quite comfortable.
