Winter(ized) camping

I think it should be okay but just want to double check...
I'm attending an event in frigid Michigan this weekend and have found out that the venue offers on site camping. Electric is provided but no water. there are washrooms there. There's no issue with using a winterized trailer just as a heated room to sleep in, is there? My little trailer is a lot cheaper and nicer, and less expensive than the local hotels!

You should be fine if winterized and without adding water to your tanks.

Others here can speak to the do and do not's.

I put anti-freeze down the bowl for the drain pipes. Myself, I would keep a gallon jug of water for an emergency rinse of the toilet, knowing that I do not want water to freeze in the drain pipes.

Smart folks around here, they can advise better than I.

Gook luck and enjoy.

Oh gosh no! I meant propane tanks! But thanks for asking, that could have been disastrous!
Taking drinking water and using washroom facilities in the venue building...

Cool, Now search the forum for topics about humidity. You should be fine for this trip. You may experience it, just good stuff to know in this weather.
