Four seasons coaches?

My Adventurer doesn't seem to be suited for cold (35-40 F) weather. Does anyone know of a class A, 2003-2008, less than $75000, that is more suited for cool weather full-timing? Would prefer something around 35 ft.

Thanks!

Newmar and Travel Supreme (now Entegra) the first 2 spring to mind. Both insulate closer to regular house standards.

Triple E I believe also had good insulation, I have looked that closely to verify however.


We moved from a Fleetwood to a Newmar and the difference has been toasty.

x2 on Triple EEE, although they no longer produce class "A"s they are still around for support. Newmar was my second choice as EEEs were out of my price range. Remember the slide floors are the weak point in all floor plans as far as insulation is concerned.The more slides you have the harder it is to keep warm. For use in very cold temps, make sure the floor plan allows you to function with all the slides in.

As mentioned both are very good in all seasons, with precautions if going to be in very cold for any length of time. Hydronic systems such as Hydro/Aqua Hot gives the best protection in the cold climates as they also feed basement heat and or floor heat in some models. Also if needed, one can tap into lines and add an additional zone for more heat in needed areas. If you are talking sub-zero temps, you may become the new expert on do's and don'ts. More info would be good.

My '01 Newmar 40' DP would fit your criteria, except for the length. The two slides are better than four. I feel some cold air around my head with the bedroom slide. I have been using the Duo-Therm heat pumps down to 40 degrees, then I get up and switch to the furnace. I haven't been in below freezing temps yet and don't plan on it...but the basement has an insulated water compartment with a duct and blower.

Air Baron...

Thanks very much for your information. I've thought about upgrading to a DP, and have looked at a MADP. I don't know if we're ready to take that leap yet, but then again, we only have 2 years experience.

Hey...we are new to RVing and jumped in with both feet as full-timers. Spent a number of years reading, talking to owners and walking thru RVs at both dealers and trade shows. So far, so good.
