thank you to all

I just wanted to check in and say Thank you to all . I have found many of the owners here be very knowledgeable when it comes the Redwood products and camping related topics. I am going to have to wait 5 months to get our first vacation trip , its going to be a long winter....... However we may get a few very cold nights up north in for a overnight snowmobile trip. I have a place in central NH that I hope to do a Saturday night or two over Jan~Feb at some point. Last Year I did a over night in our old Holiday Rambler TT at -18F overnight. Dry camping of course. 72* inside with some help from 2 -1500watt elect heater and furnace.
Anyone do any cold weather camping with there Redwoods? How is it heating these? Mine has the full time package with duel pane windows .

Hi Mark and Melissa;

We live in our RW 365/24/7. We have been in it more than 3 years now. We live in the Pacific Northwest and our winters usually have at least some brutal cold snaps and some snow. We have had ZERO problem with the RW. It has been warm and cozy throughout with temps down in the teens. Mind you, we took the usual precautions that you take with an RV for winter with regard to the water hoses outside and sewer and all of that, but the combo of the furnace and the heatpumps were all we needed. Super warm. We left the light on in the wet bay outside (where the tank valves are) to keep that area from getting too cold when it really got cold, but other than that, nothing special. We are heading into our 4th winter and not too worried!

We lived in our RW for two winters here in Oregon with no Issues. Like Romany we took precautions heated water line. We also used two electric heaters and the fireplace for heat mainly because we did not pay for electricity at the location we were parked during the winter. We were very comfortable even when weather was down in the Teens at times. Very Happy with how our RW was in the cold.


One suggestion is to run a Dehumidifier if possible to keep any condensation out of Trailer.

Congratulations on your new to you RW if you are handy you can pretty much correct all the issues these and every RV have. The forum has been a Godsend to me to keep me busy in preventative maintenance to make sure these rigs are all they can be. as far as Winter camping make sure you run the Propane heat account that is what keeps your under carriage above freezing. Welcome to the group........

You know seeing all the pictures of our Redwoods on here I am kind of thinking we are all nothing more than eye candy for the rest of the RVrs out there......
