Alexandria... we have a Bigfoot
25RQ with the winter package, and live in Iowa. We camp through the late fall
, but the trailer goes into storage by mid-November every year... hopefully just ahead of the snow. While the trailer would do fine during most of the winter (and I have used a 15CB17 in the winter here) the larger problem is that there's nowhere to either fill or dump your tanks in winter country. All of the outside plumbing is winterized everywhere, and you can't get to any of the sewer dumps for the snow. AND, your trailer will do fine while stationary, but when you're on the road, the plumbing will freeze. And, of course, if you should happen to run out of propane
in the early evening during a snowstorm, it's gonna be a really cold couple of days (and nights). Electric heaters are fine for keeping the chill off, but they really don't heat as well as the furnace

I get around it by winterizing the plumbing, and then using a wash basin and water in jugs. I also have a port-potty which works nicely, but there are not showers, and it's really quite the PITA. Further, towing a trailer on icy/snow covered roadways is just plain risky. When I've towed in winter, it's been on dry pavement.
