We camped several years on weekend during the winter. It was in a seasonal camping and we were able to use our terry taurus 30 feet with the permission of the camping owner. We had electricity but no water. We were able to take our shower with water that we were boiling on the camp fire. We were alone in the campground and we enjoyed every minutes of it. During those years we were living in a apt. building and it was a great joy for us to get out of the highrise building. We had to watch for the condensation : a trailer is not really built for winter months.

In our old starcraft Hybrid I went on a early season trout fishing trip, it was 19F during the day, and much much colder at night, had a 5000 watt heat strip in the AC that we left on all the time, and set the furnace to run at 65F, the furnace ran very little was very sung all week. I would it be a little cooler in the camper better sleeping.
