I think maybe a very important item for cold weather would be to skirt and insulate any unit to keet the cold from the underneath side.

As a minimum, dual pane windows, heated tankes, insulated flooring, the holding tankes dump valves will need to be out of site somewhere insulated, either electric or cable pull. You'll need to be pluged into either 30 or 50 amp so your can run electric heat to assist the furnace. The heat will have to be on 24/7 whether your home or not, just to prevent water lines from freezing. Your are going to go through propane like crazy. The cost of propane may not justify what your saving by staying in an rv. Best of luck!

You never said if you own the land that you will be staying on or will you be living at a campground. If you will own the land you could also construct an enclosure to park the camper in witch will also protect it from the elements. I priced an 18 foot by 46 foot metal building to enclose my camper with12 foot side height was about $ 7500.00 and I would erect it myself. Just a thought, this would keep all your water piping and sewer hoses inside. Good luck in your future and go after your dreams.

You might want to take a look at the New Horizons line of toy haulers Motomover | New Horizons RV | Luxury Full Time RV & Custom Fifth Wheels
They are well insulated and built for full timers, but also heavier than others due to heavier frames and construction.

Had pioneer spirit, now roughing it is only finding a 30 amp campsite. It's been 3 or 4 years since I camped on the Denali highway above the tree line.
