The difference is double pane windows

is to look underneath the frame. If the pipes are covered by fiberglass, you have a 4 seasoned trailer. If you can see the plumbing, you do not.
I read another post which described how the propane
heater works to keep the pipes from freezing.
I wanted to get a 4-seasoned trailer because I do a lot of Winter Camping in Northern California. I have also taken it to Montana and in Utah. Prior to looking for a Bigfoot
, I had decided on a Casita
. I am glad I did not go that route as it would not have meet my cold weather needs.
My only complaint is the fact that I am sleep separately from my husband due to the bed sizes.
If ... you want to consider a comfortable, cold weather, "stick" trailer, Artic Fox is very popular in Canada.
BTW, there are several Bigfoots listed in the classifies of this forum: http://portland.craigslist.org/clk/rvs/2895299885.html
Take a look.
