Yeah, for 2 years my wife was a travel nurse and we, my 12yo daughter included went all over the country, the last 5 months I took a job in the oil industry so she can take a break lol. We were in Co then La now ND onto Pa next.

Only supposed to be here in ND for another month before the Pa job and that is supposed to last 2 years or more.

I though maybe it had to do with the ND oil because why else would someone be in the icebox of the lower 48 staying in a TT. LOL

It's -3 in MI right now before wind chill. That's cold for all of you in the south. Much too cold to camp.

When it gets down to -23, your freezer may not work so well lol. They have indoor campgrounds up here, but with a waiting list and $1200/ month, more than we paid for almost beach front in Palm Beach County Florida 2 years ago.

Got the freezer working by partially blocking the vent outside, switching the fridge over to gas and "venting" above the refrigerator.

My neighbors grey water drain lines are froze even though he has skirting and a heater under his camper. I put heat tape on my drain lines even though I parked on top of them and they are under the fully skirted and heated under the camper.

Different world up here, but you can for sure camp at any temp if you take the right steps.

You my friend have raised the bar and defined the true definition of a "Die Hard Camper".
I nominate you for the 2015 "Jayco Owners Forum Die Hard" Award. Is their such a thing? LOL If there was consider yourself nominated. Best of luck up there.

In my young and youthful days of life, I would camp in just about any weather. I can recall tossing sleeping bags on a cold ground to sleep, in temps below freezing.

Got married, got a good job, got older. Bought a hybrid. It has heat; we use it!

If the temps get down below the 60's, the heater is on!

X2!! Used to go to Boy Scout winter camp for a few years. Several days out in below zero weather, cooking over an open fire, then tenting over night. There's a reason I bought a trailer, and gave up tent camping......
