Winter camping in your Columbus
Being that we are in the so called dog days of summer and in the South, we are looking forward to cooler temps of fall/winter and travel to more temperate climates. Just wondering what the limitations are to winter camping with our Columbus? Since it has an enclosed heated underbelly and heated holding tanks we are trying to think about what conditions can we handle in our camper? What are some of the things that may not be obvious that we need to consider in freezing temps? How many of you are planning to use your Columbus over the winter months? How many of you bought your Columbus for that very reason? Has anyone had a previous camper with capabilities to camp in winter months? How would you compare to the features on the Columbus? What were the coldest temps you have camped in? Personaly I have tent camped in 17 deg. weather and awoke to find that the water in my 5 gal. jug was frozen solid and couldn't even make coffee.
One area of concern that I have would be the basement with the plumbing that I have seen. Is this area heated? Does anyone know?
I feel cooler just thinking about it.
Should make for an interesting thread.
