Precept Insulation - RVing in colder weather
Looking at possibly purchasing a Precept 31UL and have posted questions to local dealer as well as two emails to Jayco trying to determine whether there are future plans to increase the insulation factors in the Precept to handle colder weather.
The 5ers have the ThermaShield with extra foil wrapping, storm windows, heating belly/storage compartments and more insulation significantly increasing R-Values. The heat to the belly/storage to assist with protecting the water system and storm windows would be very desirable. Living up north in Alberta, Canada, we would prefer better insulation such as the ThermaShield.
I suspect due to weight Jayco may not be able to do this with the Precept. Looking for current owners to provide comments and feedback on real life experiences on extended season RVing in a Precept.
What was the lowest temperature you have camped in?
Any issues or concerns?
What would you personally recommend the lowest threshold to safely use the RV without concern of freezing water system?
Hopefully there are some positive experiences with current owners that will alleviate any of our concerns. We definitely like to start RVing early in the season and push it late and often find the shoulder seasons the most enjoyable times to RV.
Trying to get answers in a few areas to help make our final decision on either a new Jayco Eagle 5th or Precept MH.
Thanks in advance
