Have not had a problem being cold but we do not camp below freezing much either.
Our you sure? This is from the PUMA TOY Hauler exterior features list. And I quote "•Darco Wrapped Underbelly" end quote. To me this is covering the underbelly of your unit.
All three of my 5er's have had some type of belly covering for the water and waste tanks. They all advertised that the tank area was heated and or protected some way for freezing prevention. Also this prevents air buffeting of the underneath belly area when travel at 60MPH down the road.
Cedar Creek units do the covering just a little different and in my very humble opinion this is a better option than what the Keystone Cougars have for their underbelly covering.
What people forget is that travel trailers (all types) and motorhomes take extra prevention and work to maintain them. This is just part of RV'ing. My neighbors see me crawling around and walking on the roof working on our 5er all of the times. They think we are nuts for all of the work that I put into the 5er. But than I have a house on wheels and not some flee bit hotel with bed bugs in it.
