  1. We have a 2016 Evo by Forest River T2050 travel trailer with the "Arctic Package." That package includes an insulated and enclosed underbelly, increased insulation all the way around, and tank heater pads. The water lines to each appliance and fixture run around the inside of the trailer rather than between the walls, with the exception of the hot and cold lines leading from the water heater to the kitchen sink, which is on a pedestal. However, that one runs just below the thin floor and above the tanks and underbelly insulation, so I'm not terribly concerned about that one freezing, either, as long as we maintain a reasonable temperature inside the rig.We intend to do some winter camping this season at several different ski resorts. Unfortunately, Forest River didn't see protecting the dump valves as anything important when putting together their "Arctic Package." The pipes to the dump valves drop out of the insulated underbelly before terminating at the valves, leaving them rather exposed to the elements and prone to freezing up.As that's got the potential for a messy disaster in cold weather, we decided to do something about it. We've frost-proofed our dump valves and exterior plumbing, and made a video as we completed the job to share our idea:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KABF205es_UI welcome your feedback, including any weaknesses you still see, or any better ideas around this subject.
  2. I have recently retired full time to an RV "tiny home." Currently having to spend the winter in southwest Wyoming, elevation about 7,000 ft. I need to skirt my Nexus Ghost super C, but can't find anyone who has skirted a C. Anyone have any experience / ideas?
  3. Warm Greetings from NH! My name is Claudia and my partner is Rowan. We are in our 30s & 40s and are both divorced. We both have full time jobs. We have decided to become full timers living in a '98 Mallard 37k. It needs a lot of elbow greese and love, but we are excited to start this new life adventure of freedom. We both have traveled our entire lives ( our fathers were both military ), and after failed attempts of living by societies 'white picked fence', we have found ourselves wanting to live for us. We have been livaboarders on a 40' fishing trawler for the past couple of years in KW, FL. We decided to move to the beautiful mountans of NH for a change of scenery. I wanted to introduce myself ( HI!! ) and see if anyone could help with a few questions, or at least point us in the right direction. We need to locate a campground that will actually allow us to be full timers. We would want a yearly or year round lease, as we don't want to be stuck in just one place for too long, but still need the time to be able to repair/remodel our new home. Campground websites state that they are "year-round" with rates and availability posted, but when I call to inquire, they state that we can only be "living" in the camper up to 3 days a week. What?!?! Is there a trick to this? Or am I asking the wrong questions? When we would drive around the campground, it is more than obvious that there ARE people living in their campers for more than 3 days a week. Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated. I also have been looking for groups, blogs, etc. to meet others and share tricks & tips and adventure stories ( this one is a great start! ). Any suggestions to where we can find more like-minded people? I also welcome and appreciate any other info that one would think would benefit us. Thank you in advance and I look forward to being a part of this new community.
  4. Hi, I'm searching for a winter-proof toy hauler. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We are new full-timers and we love winter. During the summer our 25' Class B is fine. But now we are winter camping and we need more LP storage, insulation, and indoor room for our bikes. My wish list includes: 1. Enclosed, insulated, and heated holding tanks 2. Lots of LP (currently we have only 17# capacity (!)) 3. Separate garage for all of our gear. Bicycles, skis, SUP, kayak, paddles, etc. 4. I'd love a fiberglass roof 5. The shorter the better. I don't want to go from 25' to 45'. I still want to be as nimble as possible. 6. Durability is important So far KZ looks the best. Arctic Fox doesn't have a toy 5er--just bumper pulls. Winnebago is not very insulated. Excel wild cargo is out of business. Can anyone point me towards other good brands or models? Thanks so much!!!
  5. Does anyone have thoughts or guidance to share about spending the winter in an RV at the Escapees Park in Livingston? It certainly isn't going to be "tropical" but I'm wondering how comfortable a place it would be to spend the winter. Thanks! Andy
  6. Well, we are so glad to be here, and almost nervous. There are so many excellent blogs and websites listed, and we are just getting started. But here goes, and we shall jump on board anyhow. Full Timing here in Canada, all year long. Very glad to be through the process of downsizing and living in our RV and being mobile. We have a YouTube channel as well as a website, if you are wanting to know more about us crazy Canadians who live all winter in the white stuff! http://www.rvlifecanadianstyle.ca www.youtube.com/channel/UCPluQIOp3Vhvw0pUXwhJoVA
  7. We have been full timing since 2011. We decided to try a little skiing in the winter. One thing led to another and now we are at Park City, Ut for the winter. Our 2008 Cedar Creek has done pretty good on the winterized segment, but it is getting a little long in the tooth. We are starting to analyze 5th wheels with an eye on spending more winters in ski country and replacing our aging 5th wheel. Yes, we are actually wanting to RV in sub-freezing temps. So if you have any personal winter experience with a brand and wish to share please do. Gripes are encouraged also. We are not looking for tips on how to keep an RV warm in the winter, we have lots of those. Thanks for sharing.
  8. Hello fellow HDT drivers, We are currently in Colorado and have decided to stay here for the winter. Knowing that it can get fairly cold my husband is already doing the skirting and situating the things we are fully aware that need to be done. However, I am a bit lost on the extent that we should go for our HDT. We own a 2001 Volvo automatic. We have plans to plug it in for the entire winter. Should we start it at all? As we have been running for least 30 min to an hour every 2 weeks through the summer. Should we put anything in the fuel to keep it from freezing? Have read that truckers do this when driving over the road in cold areas. Should we have a certain amount of fuel in it? We will be living in the Fort Collins area and it is known to not get as cold here as the Springs or Denver but still much colder than that of which we are used to with our HDT. Dont know if I am missing any questions to ask. Honestly every bit of schooling that anyone has to offer us will be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Phyllis
  9. A special shout-out to all my new friends we met at the Plantation. The welcome was very warm and friendly in the true Escapees fashion. We really enjoyed our visit and had a magnificent time. In the process we may have found a new winter home. We must come back when we have more time. Just picked-up a "new" motor home in Jacksonville, Fl and must return to San Antonio for a Dr. Apt. I had fun photographing the Dipsticks taking their annual New Years plunge into the cold water of the swimming pool. Photos can be viewed at www.facebook.com/oneclickgallery
