Thanks again for all your thoughts - many that I had not considered. Out of curiosity, if it simply gets too hard to stay in the cold - has anyone driven their rig in the snow. That's not something I am very interested in doing, but would like to see your thoughts if we need that as a plan b. Many thanks again.

Plan B should be HEAD SOUTH. The wheels are on it for a reason. Long term wintering becomes a pain and a hardship. Things outside freeze get brittle and crack or break unless you are very dilligent in keeping them from the cold. If you have to full time in the frigid weather its different, but if you have a choice get of town. There are more reasons to leave than to stay. Return in the spring!

We snowbird and it seems like we can never return home without running through a snow storm. For the most part the highway maintenance will soon have the highways back in shape to safely travel.

Issues may come up if you get caught in a snow or ice storm and try to continue. The safest thing to do is to pull over and camp until the conditions and road clear. Otherwise - slow down!

If you have ribbed tires the traction in snow and ice is less than lugged and extra care is warranted.

Best advice, leave early, return late and stop if you encounter bad conditions.

Remember not all of us are retired.

For us this is our working house, I pay for it by living in it where ever the work is.

It would be silly lose everything just because it gets cold.


I've done over 850 miles in the snow, the wheel base makes them very stable. The weight means if something is going to happen, you're not going to stop it.
