Cardinal 3450 Safe for Minnesota Winter? Can my wife and I make it with dual pane win

Is it safe to say that anybody in Minnesota can live in a cardinal during the winter especially this one we last had? We are contemplating on purchasing a cardinal and just want to make sure that we can live and in the winter.

You can live in anything as long as you take the correct precautions, I don't care if it's a shack. It's all up to you. It is not rated as a 4 season camper, just remember that. If your looking for a 4 season camper look up Artic Fox and compare your unit. Big Big difference, but you can still do it. Fr only makes a true 3 season camper not 4 season.

In the cardinal brochures it states it is a Fourseason camper. Any other opinions on a cardinal 3450 in a Minnesota winter?

you do know that the Cardinal is NOT a 4-season trailer.

in fact, the only trailer that FR makes, that can be considered as one, is the True North Ice Lodge line:

Not a Cardinal, but your question brings this thread to mind:

Northern MN in 385BH Full Time!

There are 12 volt heat pads on the tanks as well as forced heat underbelly but don't think the unit is made for the extreme cold winter we had this year. Not sure there is a towable unit made to withstand the conditions we had this year.

Sorry that's an ice fishing shack as represented by holes in the floor. Not a camper and definitely not 4 season. No toilet, no water connections, no holding tanks and the list goes on. Strictly an ice fisherman paradise.

It say's it has the ARCTIC PACK, that is not making it 4 seasons. I looked all over the internet for one that say's it's 4 season. Please post the link. It will be a first....Thank You
