We are looking to get into a 4 season unit.We are not full timeing we just want to be cooler in the summer and warmer in the fall.We would also like to not hear the neighbors through the walls.I am kind of fond of the HR Alumiscape I like the way it looks.The open road model looks good too.I would like to pay less for my camper than I paid for the house.

Our Arctic Fox made by Northwood is working out well for us as a year-round camper. We have used it from +10F to +110F. Arctic Fox is a mid priced camper. I'm sure you can buy better, but probably not for the same money. Our 27-5L was about $30K when we got it on 2001. See http://www.nashtraveltrailers.com/ for the Northwood website.

There are all kinds of campers out there for what your looking for. If your looking at the Alumascape price range you might check out Montana, Everest, Cedar Creek, Sunnybrook. There is a Montana/Cedar Creek dealer south of you in Middletown called Couch's Campers(I got my Ameri Camp there). There is an Everest dealer called Dave abrogast in Troy and there is a Sunnybrook dealer called Hickery Hills in FT Loramie. To help keep the sound from coming in get the daul pane windows. They will also help with the heat and cold.

As a fulltimer I agree with the other responders and a big second to get double glass a must for quiet.

We have an Artic Fox fiver that we park in Breckenridge and use on weekends for skiing. After the first season we discovered where the air leaks and missing insulation locations were and fine tuned it over the summer. the area along the front wall under the bed was very leaky and cold. I needed to remove the matress some carpeting and plywood to get into the upper pin box area where nothing was done to insulate or seal out air. two cans of foam some plywood and house insulation made a big difference in the bedroom which has very little heat from the forced air system.
I also included an olympian (best for altitude) catalytic heater so the much too loud furnace wouldn't run as much. We have the optional storm windows which may help insulation but still dont prevent frosting.

Depending on your price range, you might also want to check out the Doubletree Mobile Suites 5th wheels.
