Shasta Oasis in winter

Has anyone winter camped with a Shasta oasis?
What is needed to make it work in the winter - how did you insulate tanks and all?
Or did you camp dry?

Have winter camped in a Dutchmen, which was not as insulated as the Oasis -more cold air seemed to seep in than in the new Oasis.

We winterize by mid November. We bring a sickroom/bedside commode like this one: MedPro Versatile Homecare Commode Chair with Adjustable Height | Walgreens

to put in the bathroom for toileting (plastic bag, kitty litter style), bring jugs of water and wash up in basins of water that we heat up on the stove.

But, we don't winter camp in bad condiitons, just on the occasional nicer weather weekends in winter that are not snowy/icy. The ten miles from my house to the interstate are not for the faint of heart. I rarely drive my front wheel drive car on winter WV hills. We commute together in the 4wd truck.

Thank you - I am not sure we are ready for the winter yet with the oasis. Our spring and fall camping gets snow. It eats propane like crazy to keep the kids and water warm.
I wonder if it is actually insulated ?
I think if we went without water it would be easier. I am likely upsizing my truck to a 3/4 ton as I broke a leaf spring last year. Travelling is usually with 5 and always in the mountains.
Maybe this year we will go south and camp glacier national park again.
Thanks again! Lots of help!
