First Timer from Geneva Florida

Just bought a 2006 Lexington Forest River 283 GTS and I am planning a trip to Breckenridge Colorado this Christmas. Biting off more than I can chew?

Not really, Breck (Tiger Run) is a really cool place and you will have fun... Some preparation is prudent tho, like a couple of space heaters, a heated and insulated fresh water line etc. If you haven't winter camped before then it will be a learning experience.

You will use a lot of propane, but keep the furnace running, and it will heat thing enough to keep the waterlines etc from freezing. If you have heater pads on the tanks that would be good, but not absolutely essential.

It can easily go down to -20F overnight depending on the weather patterns.
