So we've been out looking at different Toyhaulers this weekend. We would like to get one that is well insulated and that has heated/enclosed tanks so we can use it through the winter. So far it sounds like the Desert Foxes are pretty good. What other manufacturers make a good Toyhauler (under 30') that would work well for winter camping?

Weekend Warriors of course...... but I would
recommend getting the fiberglass over aluminum.
We've had both, and the fiberglass is a better
insulator.

Warrior only encloses 1 tank if I remember right.
And it is only heated when the furnace is going.
Not really insulated, just a metal enclosure around 1 of the fresh water tanks.

Hey there DesertFox! Welcome to iRV2!

Ryan: I believe they make a kit that you can retro any tank with...it's that stripping that you attach to the tank and to the 12v- but like Linc says, it only works when you've got some kind of power to it- you still have to winterize your tanks if they sit for too long...

Good luck!
