I haven't had my Timber Ridge out in temps as cold as BubbaHut, but in previous trailers we have had to keep a vent partially open on days below freezing in order to avoid condensation. In a tighter trailer like the Outdoors RV, I would think it even more important. Your body and you activities (showers, cooking) give off a lot of moisture and you need to get it outside instead of inside.

This has been my first winter experience in an RV, and my 3rd season of camping. Last week was the coldest I have experienced, to date - got down to about 13*F and survived the ice storm of the year. Have heat tape on my water hose, but the dump valves aren't protected, so the gray water froze shut with an almost full tank. Relief when the thaw came on Friday. I am surprised that a light weight trailer is doing so well.

Using about one 1 1/2 bottles of propane per week and a little 1500 watt space heater, staying toasty.
