Leather Furniture and Freezing Temps

Has anyone experienced problems with leaving leather furniture in the trailer with the sub zero winter temps...where we live it will get sub zero and stay there a very long time. The leather recliners in the trailer concern me in these temps, however hauling them into the house presents a problem too...not alot of room for them, and hauling them into the basement doesn't sound too appealing. I have visions of cracked and split leather come spring time.

I wouldn't worry about it or even give it a second thought.

Are you speaking from your experiences in the sub zero of Texas?

I'll put a good leather conditioner on the recliners once a year, have not done that yet to the rv recliners but it is time. Have all leather in the truck and have done those at least twice a year, seven years and they still look great. When we are home here in Texas the truck sleeps in the garage plus extended freezing conditions are not much of a concern in central Texas tho we do get below the 32ļ mark at times. (think 2011 super bowl)

WFD I don't live in Texas ( I'm in Canada where it does get COLD!!) I would not worry about the leather seats, unless you are going to sit in them, then I would put a blanket on them, leather is darn cold on the rear end in the winter HAHA! Don't worry never had leather split or anything from cold

Cows don't split and they live in very cold temps.

The leather is the last thing you will have to worry about!

I picked up a load of leather furniture in Minnesota one time .
It was the middle of January and colder then a well diggers a#&!
The building was not heated and not only that they sat in the trailer for two weeks before delivery.

Same goes for televisions.
Ever been behind walmart or Sam's and seen those shipping containers?
For 3 months before x-mas these are filled with electronics.

Don't sit on them with a bare butt. Other than that, I don't see any problems.
