There is a lot of discussion, not only on this forum, as to what the "thermal" packages consist of. It doesn't matter that they are called Polar, Glacier, Arctic, whatever, this does not mean that you have a four season trailer. Usually a cold weather package from the manufacturer means there is a 2" duct running off of a heater duct going to the tank area. You'll only find this when the bottom of the railer is covered by coroplast. You will unlikely find any type of insulation under the frame, fiberglass or otherwise. You would do well to find out just exactly what kind of cold weather protection your trailer was built with. You may be shocked to the answers you get, but not nearly as surprised as you may be when you wake up on a sub-freezing morning. Your best bet for freeze protection is going to be tank and pipe heaters, and I doubt you are going to find any of that factory installed.

Yep, there is a chance that we might move to northern Az in the future, temps will be mid 20's at night but get to about 35 during the day. Sooooooo thats why I am asking.
Trying to see if the Bungalow would be worth keeping and move it or get something else, not a stick and brick house but something with wheels. so it can be moved. Northern Az does get real cold, it is the southern part that stays warm.

We have it and I think it also helps for noise and a/c during very hot weather.

Enclosed underbelly certainly helps with the cold, even if you have to slip a heater in there >10* to keep your tanks from freezing. But in the heat- AZ heat. you need some reflective stuff in the windows or you will cook.... Even the cheap stuff from Lowes cut to fit will do wonders.
