Don't let people scare you away from winter camping. We have camped year-round in Surveyor Sports for years with never a problem. We often camp when overnight temps drop to the teens, although we live in a state where it typically gets back well above freezing the following day.

Our first Surveyor had neither an enclosed underbelly nor heated tanks. Our current one is enclosed but no heated tanks. We don't worry about the tanks freezing because we don't let them get anywhere near full in cold weather.

We use a heated fresh water hose when necessary. This won't help if the campground spigot itself freezes, but we've never had that happen. Usually it's just the fresh water hose that freezes up. If you don't have the heated hose, just unhook your hose at night, drain it, and hook it back up when it warms up the next day.

We end up winterizing and de-winterizing three or four times a year (a 15 minute process), but it beats sitting home for six months at a stretch. If you live in northern Minnesota, results may vary. But here in North Carolina we rarely have entended periods of freezing temps, and there may be three or four days during the whole winter that roads are covered with ice and snow. Then we stay home.
