Not sure if you ordered your TT yet or buying one off the lot
Two things that may help as well -
I ordered my 2306 a wekk ago and still have 6 to 7 weeks to wait till it arrives.
I ordered mine with the standard Oak and westport interior but found out for $145 upcharge I could upgrade to the wood look flooring in which I did and it seems like it would be better as far as an extra barrier on the floor because it is thicker and cushioned when you walk on it - felt weird so gona take some time to get used to.

Another option is you could always add the storm windows and the Heated Tanks option like I did even though I am further south then you (Orlando FL) I figured it was a good idea to spend a the little extra now so I could have that option open then to find out later I made the mistake of not ordering it if I ever decided to camp where it is really cold

Heated tanks

Sherdep, Thanks for you post. I ultimately purchased the Rockwood Mini 2502s instead of the 2306. I did not get the heated tank option. I figured I would "ease" into cold weather camping and I found this company for aftermarket application of heated tanks and dumps. UltraHeat, Inc. - Easy to Retrofit

I am lead to believe they might even be the supplier of the OEM tank heaters for many of the RV manufacturers.

Anyway, I my option package did include the heated mattress and I am looking at the possibility of placing some insulation around the bed area in the basement bay that's under the bed.

I pick up the unit at the end of the month in Ohio, subject to weather of course. Then I am headed your way in the following weeks for the first run. Actually I will be on the west coast in The Cedar Key area.

Thanks again and great camping,

S Cannon
