Question Lowest temp's that you have camped in?

Got word yesterday that we will be serving as camp host the entire month of November. Bad news is that here in this area November could be decent, or then again it could turn nasty cold and even have snow! I am praying that this is going to be a mild Nov.

Was just wondering what the worst/coldest temps that you have been out in your Roo/Hybrid in? For how long of a time?

we camped at Yosemite this last April.
a snowstorm hit the Valley while we were there. i'd estimate that it got down to 29 degrees for a couple of nights.
but it warmed up enough that nothing stayed frozen.
we did have about 6" of snow overnight, though.

We camped in Stauton VA in a Keystone Litehouse, similar to the Roo, and it was 28 degrees over night. Furnace ran quite a bit but we stayed warm and had no problems due to the weather.We were there for 4 nights. The campground had a heat tape to wrap around the water hose to keep it from freezing. Since you'll have shore power, take an electric blanket and a space heater or two, helps save on the propane.

We dry camped last weekend and it hit 26 one night and 30 the other 2 nights. I used a lot of propane but it was a nice 74 inside

When we had our Rockwood PUP, we once camped when it got into the teens overnight. It was winter, the camper was winterized so no water to freeze, and we just had to go camping! The heated mattresses and propane furnace worked overtime that weekend. But, we had fun!!

Mid 20s. Dry camping. Killed the batteries because they were shot on the first night.
Ended up going home the next morning. We weren't even mad. Didn't replace those damn batteries for another two years lol. Just made sure we went to places with power.

Stayed in driveway for 7 days with a foot of snow on the ground and mid 20s for the highs about 2 years ago while our hardwood floors were being redfinished in the house.

Like Hatchet58. Elk Camp, November, near Mt. Adams here in Washington many years ago with our Fleetwood Flair. Daytime temps were around freezing, nightly temps in the low 20s. Had to run the generator almost continuously to keep the heat on. Would only shut it down in the evening just before bed and we piled on the blankets. Lasted a week this way but we were cold.

Now if we camp in extreme temperatures, either cold or hot we look for hookups.
