Look at the R factor stats for a Cedar Creek. We went through a tank of LP in ONE day in temps around the mid-upper 30's. The four season capability is true - it just depends upon where the unit is during the winter!

The only time we run the furnace is when it's going to freeze. Anything above 32, and it's heat strips, small space heaters front and back, and of course the dehumidifier I've mentioned in other threads puts off a bit of heat while keeping the windows and walls from sweating. We stay quite warm. Never went through a tank in a day, although we're prepared to. I'm sure we would if we used that as primary heat. We have an aux tank that sits under the front with it's own line for easy hook up.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Our park is near Ceaser Creek State Park (Ohio) just outside of Waynesville, about 30 or so miles north of Cincinnati right off I-71. They do offer year round sites with full hook up. I went there in February with about 8 inches of snow on the ground, the drives were plowed, and there are about 8 - 10 full timers living there all winter. Now I'm asking them how bad it was and none really had any horror stories. This was a cold and long winter in SE Ohio, but it looks like it's able to be done with some precautions.
But again the question remains do we bite the bullet and get something which, granted is not a mobile home in a trailer park, but has more insulative construction than our Hemishpere.

Look at the Ice Castle RV Edition fish house, you still have to figure out how to keep the water from freezing, but rvalue is better than a TT

What R values do people think is needed for 4 Season living?

I'll be trying this in northern AL starting this summer but wish I was further north.

Mark, if I were in your shoes, I'd probably attempt a season with what you have. Biggest reason, you just might buy something that is consider better insulated, and find yourself in the same boat. Just my 2 cents. With precaution, I think you'll be fine. Keeping inside warm is easy, it's the all the other stuff that tends to be a problem every now and then.
