Winter rv?

I was wondering is there any good fifth wheel / toy haulers good for 4 season full time living in Colorado with a good insulated package? And if so what do y'all recommend

For a toyhauler the one that comes to mind is the Excel Wild Cargo. If not a toyhauler then DRV, Lifestyle, Excel.

You have to realize that even a well insulated 5th wheel is not as good as a house. Wind gets under the floor of a 5th wheel if you do not block it with straw or something. Also the walls are not as thick.
Trailers get cold spots in corners and cupboards.

Also it is difficult to find an RV park open all season as above ground water hoses and spigots will freeze.

There are people that do it so it can be done.

Thanks is that the only type of toy haulers that have a good insulation package I no I'm going to have to stop air from underneath and insulate all hoses from trailer to watersupply and then some more but I'm looking for a good thick toy hauler to help as well with all my other mods I plan on doing to survive as I will be full timing thru some harsh conditions

There was a user on the Heartland Owners forum that lived and worked in Wyoming in his Cyclone toyhauler. He made lots of mods to his unit and the newer ones are now available with the Yeti package (heated tanks, hoses) for cold weather.
