Use the heater to take the chill out of the air in morn, used an oscillating space heater to maintain comfortable setting. Crawling into the bunk end of the hybrid, (we kept one end closed) it was cool but cured with electric blanket, fleece blanket and sleeping bag opened up as blanket. Nice and comfy. About as cold as I would want to go though. Good luck. J, I see you have as your profile pic your old/my new camper
I don't know if you were referring to the OP or me but we work a lot and have two infants and an 8 YO. We try to get away for a weekend whenever we can even in the winter. I also had a Trac Loc rear differential installed and 6 studded snow tires so if we encounter snow and ice we won't be stuck. It is common to have snow in the passes in the winter. We got caught by a massive snow storm about 9 years ago with our TT. Fortunately, I had Hensley Arrow hitch and I had a one ton truck 4x4 with studded snow tires. Otherwise we could not have made it home. We have had many fun times camping in the fall winter. Usually we do not go anywhere if there is lowland snow predicted but it can happen at any time and we try to be as prepared as possible. If Jayco had a 4x4 version of my motorhome I would have bought that. Funny that Jayco now has a 4x4 Melbourne but it doesn't have bunks so it won't work for us.
