We camp mid April to December in ours since 2014. Never been an issue. Had many a bellow freezing day with snow and survived just fine. If you are really concerned have the dealer put on tank heaters (we do not) and use a heated hose(we do when really cold ).

My camper has the "cold weather package". It a thin piece of corrugated plastic to enclose the underbelly. I saw my unit being built at the factor. Zero insulation in the frame beams where the tanks are. The only insulation is in the floor. I dont really think a thin layer of plastic is going to help that much as long as temps dont drop well below freezing.

Welcome to the forum. Congrats on your new RV. I also started in a used 76 Coleman, a new 85 Coleman Sequoia, a 1996 Trail Manor folding Trailer and we are waiting on our 2017 Apex 249rbs. We probably have a month wait yet. Hope you enjoy your new unit.
