You are the person who wants to avoid crowded campgrounds and peak season highway and National Park traffic and instead experience the peaceful beauty of pristine beaches (red tide free), snow capped mountain passes, idealic trout and steel head streams, skiing without lift lines, golfing without tee times, etc. In that case, I have a simple recommendation for you: "Do the Opposite.”
When others head south, you head north. While others are winterizing their RVs, you are outfitting yours for winter travel and camping. While others are stuck in Friday afternoon rush hour traffic, you are snug in your campsite watching the sunset.
It is an unbelievable way to explore our incredible landscapes in North America.
Don't be afraid of the cold, wet and snowy stormy weather. Be prepared and embrace it. Be awestruck by its beauty.
Our 2006 25’ Safari Airstream has been at minus 4 (-4) F for two days. Nothing froze and all systems worked seamlessly. Just keep the propane furnace no lower than 55 F and the hot water tank on.
For ultimate safety, we traded in our 2010 V8 Ford Explorer for a Ford F350 Super Duty. Three feet of snow or less, leave your shovel and chains in the truck bed and pop it into 4X4 low or high and blast through like you are in a 4x4 snowy truck commercial.
