I have a Keurig at home, but use a good old fashioned traditional coffee pot in the camper.

Yep.

The Keurig that holds water is a pain in the rear. I'd agree the mini is the way to go. We have on of the larger Keurig units in the plane I fly and trying to drain it for overnights in freezing temps and then keeping it primed for use is all a hassle. Also it seeps water with pressure changes. So if driving in the mountains, you'll experience this. I have one of the single cup units at home and it's so much easier to work with. No reservoir like the big ones. Just pour a cup in and hit the brew button(after you place the cup in it's spot). I take it camping with us as well, but if I weren't so cheap, I'd buy a second one as a dedicated unit for the TT. Light weight as well.

Mine stayed in the camper over the winter. We'll see if it has any damage.

Why not take the camper one home, and then alternate using the camper one and the home one each day, until summer comes?

One of our Keurigs stays in the camper; all year long. So far, no problems. I clean the Keurig at the beginning of each camping season. If you're worried about it freezing, bring it in the house. Do a good white vinegar clean before putting it back in trailer.

I have a Keurig at home and use a french press or coffee bags singles in the camper. NO need to run generator or use battery inverter power and the coffee tastes much better than my home Keurig's.

X2 here. I did not think about the freezing aspect over winter. We are able to turn ours upside down and drain most of the water out, but it is a very slow process. I will shake the unit after to hear if there is any water sloshing around. I did not think about the water lines themselves though. No way to tell if they drained or not.

We use a regular Keurig and just get as much water out as we can and we place it into
the original box and place it in our shower when we are on the road.
