Spoke with Greg today and he told me that the furnace the unit comes with is sized at the factory according to specs and floor plan.
He did suggest that I could add up to two more furnace vents, and he would supply the needed hose and parts to connect to the heater.
After talking with Greg, he said he gets other e-mails from Hunters and anyone else camping in the Cold..
Going to head out to the camper and try and find a spot or two to add some duct work and vent.
Thanks all for your help & suggestions.

Keep us informed and post any pictures if you end up making modifications to the duct work. Good luck.

We also use a Coleman catalytic heater to take the edge off. When we cold weather camp we bring our backpacking mummy bags and thermal.underwear to sleep in. I would not mind temps in the 50s especially if it is 20 outside. I have not cold weather camped in the Roo yet...maybe a trip over MLK weekend here locally in the mountains is due.

I hope I'm not late on helping you with some ideas.

We have a 2010' - 21SS. It maybe a smaller floor plans than yours, but the same issue as your unit. Our 21SS has three vents; one by the door, one in the bathroom, and one under the fridge. The furnace works great while in the 40’s to 60’s range. When temperature drops below 38įF we supplement the furnace with ceramic heaters ($12 to $18 at Wally's), and they work great as experienced last Christmas while camping at 21įF.

We also use Reflectix ( that can be purchase at Lowe's or Home Depot for about $54 for a 25'-roll. We installed Relfectix under the mattresses, and use Reflectix cutouts on the windows. I hope you have the heated mattresses, if not you can supplement with wool covers or heated blankets.
See ya' out there.
