Last October 2012 I gave up tents and bought a used Scamp 13. The first thing I did was install an Atwood 2 heater. I left the tent behind to get out of the cold and I wasnt going to camp in an Icebox so the heater was the first install. 2 months later we were camping in Quartzsite in the low 30's at night. Never would have done it in a tent. Even here in SO CAL us sissies dont like to be cold but cold to us is tee shirt weather for people up north. Get a heater in that trailer and go enjoy the outdoors.

Have to agree with Steve - Heat is nice, although my primary reason for moving from a tent to a trailer is fore the bathroom in the middle of the night!

I use a small electric heater when hooked up. Tonight I'm Boondocking near Tucson and am using the furnace.

I've been on the road since early November and have had the heater in too many nights. Hoping for warmer weather soon.

Tonight is the first night in over a week that's not in the thirties.

I was at Buckskin Mtn, AZ last weekend and it was cold at night, down in the 30's. I warmed up the 13' Scamp with the furnace, turned it off, jumped in bed inside my Havensak. Sleep nice and warm till morning. Looked at the thermometer when I woke up and it was 42 degrees. The Havensak was nice and toasty. Took about 10 min to warm the Scamp up to 65 degrees with the furnace.
