My Pace Arrow is well built as are many others. The problem is moisture and condensation in cold weather. Dual pane windows are a must in cold weather. Still in such a small area it is important to control moisture. Ventilate when cooking and showering. If you have a dryer put the towel in it and don't let the towel hang dry in the bathroom. Dry the shower don't just let it set.

The whole RV design is based upon some usage hours and those hours are not 24x7x365.

Faucets, Air Conditioners, Refridge, Door hinge wear, carpet wear, upholstery wear, toilet, shower wear, etc are all based upon casual use. Only the designers know what the design/engineered usage hours are.

Anyone can extend the life with extreme care to go beyond the expected functional use period, but it will take that level of care to do it.

It's a matter of the building codes as well. If you state that it is a full time residence, it would have to adhere to much stricter building codes (the Mobile Home code at the very least). RVs and RV Park models are NOT full time, by their very definition.

But-people still full time in everything from pop up trailers to truck campers to Prevosts. Where there's a will, there's a way.
