  As new members...we thought we'd attempt to join the party. Having "technical difficulties " with picture posting. Pictures "may" accompany this write- up.

   As much of our rv'ing over the past 20 years has been fall/winter boondocking for hunting/fishing, as that is when my vacations were taken. Now retired, we may start doing some rv'ing in warm weather...with the rest of the rv'ers. This image shows us headed home after about 18 or 19 days elk hunting! Used plow on UTV to open a path to gravel road....truck "chained-up" for a little extra "bite".

The picture below is the morning after a pretty good snowfall while elk hunting.  I had to climb up on the roof with the broom to get the solar panels operational again.  It should be obvious by these photos that our RVing lifestyle is a little different than the average.

I feel cold just looking at that.  :D

   satxron,  It really wasn't that cold...I don't think we went below zero.  An ice fishing trip or two, we were down to -20 F or a little cooler. Now that's getting a little cool for camping!

That is so awesome - but how do you keep things (like everything) from freezing?  Tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated.  Was the rig designed for that kind of weather/camping?

    Phil, We have a Teton Homes 5th wheel. We kind'a discovered the Tetons in '93, when we bought a '90 model. They were advertised/guaranteed to a -30 F. We lived in that old 1990 for 2 Wyoming winters while building our home. In those two winters we saw quite a few minus 30's and a little cooler. Since then, we've had several as technology improved....and they would get old enough for us to be able to buy a used one. They are a heavy unit,but well constructed. Teton, as well as several other quality high end manufacturers went under around 2007 to 2010. But, there are some well maintained used ones to be had. If you get bored....do a little computer research on the Tetons. They were good units

  We hope to keep this '04 until we quite rv'ing/camping, as it pretty much has everything that we learned that we wanted in a camper through years of winter camping and trials and errors...six solar panels,six batteries,inverter, Bigfoot leveling, and hydraulic disc brakes. We just had the roof re-done ( FlexArmor) and several of the dual pane windows cleaned and resealed. We're hoping she'll make another 15 or 20 years!

  We drew late season (December) elk tags, so I'm sure we'll see a few mornings below zero!

Todd and Marianne,

Thanks for the reply.  I did a quick web search and they are out there for sale - beautiful rigs.

Good luck in December.

    Thanks Phil,  They've served us well, over the years! And now hope to start using it more, since retirement. My DW just corrected me on the elk season... looks like November, so it will be warmer (most of the time)! And, thanks for the well wishes on the elk hunt, we're getting low on elk burger!

This is our first RV that we bought yesterday.

Taking the road less traveled usually means a few bumps along the way, but a lot more freedom and happiness.
