Look at Northwoods RV, the Arctic Fox line is a true 4 season unit.

If I may add my 2 cents worth. The wife and I purchased a 2007 Triple E fifth wheel that is considered a 4 season rv. So far even in 95+ degree weather we only need one of the. Two air conditioners to stay cool. Haven’t had it in the cold yet but that is coming. They are well known for thier build quality. Good luck in your hunt.



They are supposed to build a good quality Class C, also! Though....I didn’t know that they built 5’ers!

Hi Triple E used to do Class A, Class C, 5th wheels and travel trailers.

I think they now only do a Class B

When we started looking for our Class C, Triple E was on our (very) short list!

Where I am it gets to -37 c (-34 f) for weeks at a time.


Great googly moogly! That's not one of the four seasons! Just reading that made me hurt!


That's the little talked-about 5th season that falls between winter - Part A and winter Part-B

We lived in our 5er for two winters, saw a few mornings colder than a -30 F....
But, certainly not weeks of that. That would be a true test for any “box stock” RV....without any special modifications/improvements made

We full timed in our Jayco Eagle Premier for two years. Stayed near Devils Tower, WY till Thanksgiving each year before wandering south. We would stay south till late March and head back to WY and arrive back in Northern WI around the 1st of April. We saw some cold weather, temps down to 0 degrees at night and everything stayed fluid without any special insulating procedures except to put 14' foam rubber pads in the roof vent openings to reduce heat loss thru the plastic vents. Trailer stayed warm 72 degrees and furnace would kick on every 15 - 20 min at the colder temps. We used 2 30lb bottles of LP every 5 - 6 days unless the wind was blowing. Thankfully we didn't have long stretches of the colder weather. Would I want to stay in the trailer thru a winter of that kind of weather - NO!

The Jayco Northpoint replaced the Eagle Premier.

I would like a 4 season RV not for camping in the cold but for camping in the hot summer heat. Also the larger the RV the harder it will be to heat and cool.
