Winter is coming, and there is no need to stop planning camping and road trips if you have a great pull-behind camper that can handle the colder conditions. If you are wondering if you should camp in a travel trailer or 5th wheel during the colder months or when traveling through colder climates, we’ve put together this guide to help you choose a new or used winter-friendly towable.
Features to look for in an all season camper
- Heated water tanks
- Heated holding tanks (grey and black)
- Hot water option
- Insulated exterior to handle wind, rain, snow and cold air
- Insulated floor / undercarriage
- Heated underbelly
- Gas and electric forced-air heaters
Here are 5 great pull behind campers that have important features for cold weather camping.
- Arctic Fox Travel Trailer and 5th Wheel by Northwood has one very important feature: exterior insulation making it much closer to feeling like a traditional insulated home than a typical thin-walled camping trailer.
2. Cherokee Arctic Wolf 5th Wheel. This 5th Wheel by Northwood comes with an elemental protection package, preventing cold air from seeping in through the floors and freezing the water tanks.
3. Keystone Montana 5th Wheel. This expansive 5th wheel option has a robust heating system and extra large water tanks, so you can stay off grid if the weather keeps you in place for longer periods of time.
4. Heartland Bighorn 5th Wheel. Several floorplans of the Bighorn, such as the 3589RRD have great wintertime features such as a fireplace and insulated underbelly.
5. Keystone Sprinter Travel Trailer. The Keystone Sprinter comes with options such as their performance insulation package, complete with a heated underbelly called AstroFoil, which protects your holding tanks from freezing.
Whichever winter-ready camping pull-behind you choose, we hope your 2021 winter is full of camping and great memories!
