We had already been using one of these here at home and in the camper. Lasko Cyclonic Ceramic Heater. Bought another so more heat would be going toward the bathroom area. I love these. Works great. Like having a temp that you can set it at.

We camped over thanksgiving in Branson a few years ago and it got down to 18F. We were in a Fleetwood Pop-up and it was COLD outside!! Went through about 60lbs of Propane that weekend but stayed fairly warm in the camper at the end with the furnace. Of course, the water lines had to thaw out in the morning before we had running water. Still turned around and went out the following Easter and it was in the 20's. Part of the reason we traded up to the Flagstaff SuperLite!

Oh yea; our first time out this spring in March we got about 10" of snow!!! As always, a bad day camping beats a great day at work any day!!!!

Last year on Columbus day weekend in NW IL. it was mid 20`s at night and mid 40`s during the day. it was CCCCCCCold!!!! this year it was 90 on sat. and 87 on sun. with it upper 50`s at night. gotta love the midwest!

We have fun either way. the plus to the colder camping weather is the beer stays colder longer.

In November 2008 we camped in our Roo 23ss for several nights where the temperature dropped to 19 degrees with about a 20-25 mph wind. We had no major issues. Turned on the black and gray water heaters. Kept the furnace thermostat at 55-58 during the night and used our electric mattress heater. Daytime highs got in the upper 30s so sitting outside was limited. Time to get out the scrabble board.
One other element of weather: We camped at Glacier National Park where the wind gusted to 60 mph. We closed the unused bed but were gently rocked to sleep in the front bed.
Last winter we spent one night at Shaw AFB, SC where the temps dropped in the low teens and it snowed. As we were in travel mode we slept on the sofa.
We find the Roos great in any weather.

Back when we had our Keystone Cabana, We camped in 28 degrees overnight several weekends. and used an electric heater and a "clip on" fan to draw warm air into the bunk areas. everyone slept very well.
I also had bought a couple of old down comforters at yard sales to put UNDER the mattresses to help insulate them.
