Hi Mike. Absolutely, use my/our words. My wife & I think our unit is the best. As Canadians, we sometimes stay home in Ontario until after Christmas so we 'run' into the odd snow flurry or two and colder temperatures! With careful planning and trying to manage the condensation issue, we are very comfortable in our SnowVilla. Thanks for being a part of this forum....

Wow Terry: I don't have the courage to suggest that NuWa's
trailers are capable of withstanding sub zero temperatures. Your
statement of experience is such an important message about the
difference of a "true" four season coach versus those who think they
are four season. Even if we were talking about 25 degrees above
zero, your message is important to potential NuWa cusotmers. May we
post your comments on our website? MIKE

had any problems. Our water into the rig froze up first. We too use
a propane catalytic heater during the day but use the furnace during
sleep. The furnace ducts heat the basement and the tanks in the
underbelly so it is required. An alternative would be to be able to
cycle the heated air in the coach through the furnace duct work but
I didn't want to tinker with the furnace fan and haven't rigged up
other fans to do that job.

open a crack to vent it out.
