How cold can you use a Whit Hawk

We live in the Colorado mountains, looking at buying a White Hawk 20MRB. How well does the furnace keep up with cold weather? How cold have you taken your White Hawk?

If your able to plug in , you could also use a shoe box space heater to save propane and up the temp,

As long as the water lines are winterized, there is no practical limit. Add a couple space heaters and you're good well be freezing.

It was -5 when we pulled out of the driveway last Jan on our trip south. Overnited in a Wally World without hookups and heated the cabin to 70 in the time it took to eat a steak at Outback. Temp when we pulled in to the parking lot that first nite was 18 above but the inside of the TT was still close to Zero.

What are you trying to accomplish? If you can camp without water, you can camp in ANY temperature. The furnace does a pretty good job, an additional electric heater can supplement that. In cold weather we tend to use a heated mattress pad.

If you want to have full use of water, that's a different story. Without an artic package and heating pads for your tanks (fresh and waste), I wouldn't camp in too cold temps. If it gets to upper 20's at night and warms above freezing during the day you should be okay. If it stays below freezing all day, or gets into the teens at night I would start to worry.

Thanks, the one we're looking ay does not have an arctic package, but we're not so hard core that we will spend a lot of time camping below freezing. But it is the mountains and we've had snow down to 8000 feet already!
