Be aware that NO trailer is particularly good in cold weather with the possible exception of Arctic Fox and relatives. Of course, there is cold weather and then there is COLD weather. For winters in the North East for example, you are not likely to find a campground open unless it is a mobile home park so traveling to new locations and finding places available over winter will be a challenge. It takes a lot more to use a trailer set up for winter than simply having the trailer and tow vehicle. Additional insulation, heating, moisture retention, all figure into it. Following the seasons seems to make much more sense but may not apply in your case.

A 2017 vehicle will have at most a one year warranty so weigh that against new versus older but bug free vehicle. Full time use often voids warranties in many cases.

Thank you for your reply. These are all points we have been taking into consideration and finding more information a wet research. This forum has been great to read others opinions and experience.
We will be able to steer clear of extreme cold for the winter, if anything find other lodging when needed.
