Gulf Stream and Cooler weather

we bought a 2006 Gulfstream Sun Voyager this summer.


Does anyone have input on how well these will do in cooler or cold weather while living in them?


We are currently in Colorado...I plan to do some winterization this weekend. Any tips would be appreciated.


But we plan to take some trips in late November and then live fulltime in January. Planning to stay in moderately cold ( 30-55 degrees) initially to test and then go colder and snow if all seems ok?


We would welcome any tips from others that have been in colder weather....

We went to Angle Fire NM in December. Elevation was 8k+. Weatherbug said one night was -25. Not sure about that. But it was COLD. At night the walls by the bed, on the interior, would have frost on them. The INSIDES of the windows would freeze over. We had the furnace going and a space heater, as well as damp rid.

RV's for the most part are not setup for cold weather. Unless you get a cold weather package, double pane windows etc. Also our holding tanks and valves froze even though they have the heat pads from the factory.

Good Luck!

That is cold weather, not for RVing. More like for polar bears. The coldest place we have been to was Pecos, N.M. and it was something like zero degrees. The coach stayed nice and warm all night. But when we decided to leave I forgot to put the block heater on the Caterpillar engine and when I fired her up it gave a big puff of black smoke. With the block heater on it would have fired right up, makes a difference.

What he said- we were in red river same time frame and froze everything despite portable heaters in wet bays. Previous trip to Santa Fe with below freezing at night ( 25-28 ) and low thirty’s in the day had no issues and stayed plenty warm. Needed propane about every five days.
