Every time I stop by this site, Roger has a new trailer!

Our Scamp is in good company. It shares a storage garage with my dad's 1966 Chevelle.

The weather has started to turn much colder here in the Chicago area, so I've started some winter preparations for our 1978 13' Burro. The water tank is empty, the fridge is cleaned out, I've taken out any food in cans that might freeze and explode, the porta-potti is cleaned out and dry... I still need to take the cushions, LCD-TV, and microwave into the house. I can jack up the trailer quite high using the crank jacks on the front end, so water and snow should slide off OK. I'll also cover the wheels with black plastic bags for UV protection. Ah yes, I need to put steel wool in the gap at the bottom of the door, too. I wasn't planning to cover the trailer since it has sat outside for many years already. When the weather warms up in the spring, everything goes back in and we go back on the road!

Last year, we never really stopped camping with the Casita, as we planned trips all throughout Winter.

This year will be different. I have a trip coming up this week to Davidson River.

After that, I'll probably winterize it and cover it and not take it out again until our big trip to the Florida Keys in April.

Mine sits in the backyard, plugged in and ready to be used as a quiet place to get away. If we get a big snow storm I sometimes turn on the heat to loosen the snow, then use a brush to remove some of the snow from the roof.

Sometimes we even go winter camping!

In the past two years since buying the LittleFoot, my best outing has been going to the coast and sitting in the rain in January. (Oregon Gathering definitely excluded!) I can hardly wait for January 2007.

I feel incredibly lucky to live where I can use my egg year-round. Winterize? I'd move first.

Fortunately, I don't have to deal with the major wintery stuff like some of you, but (unfortunately) I live just a tad too far north in Texas to ignore winter altogether. I have been dragging my feet in draining the system and plugging in the pink stuff IV, but it was 38*F this morning, so the time is drawing near. Thankfully, I can leave it here at home (under a canopy) so I can still go camping even though it's winterized. Sometimes, I take little 5 minute camping trips by just going out into my trailer, taking a few deep breaths, and re-centering myself.

"Ches... merely burying them in snow for preservation is NOT an acceptable storage solution! "

No I agree---I winterize first then bury in snow.Works for me.After all they were made to be used outside.

Dan - I notice you're from the Twin Cities too. I wouldn't mind trying winter camping but concerned about all the salt that MN dumps on the roads. Has it had any ill affects with your Scamp?

The Eggloo is all winterized, I just have to pull it down to the storage yard. Will throw a cover over it and a support pole inside in a couple of weeks or so. It will stay that way until late Feb. when we start packing to head south!!

We added this picture to this thread because we do store our trailer in the parking lot. What is different is that white stuff. Here in Victoria on Vancouver Island that is quite an event. I wanted to record it for all time.

When I look out at the Tril I want to go throw a blanket over the little thing to keep it warm.
