A few years back, we came across a BigFoot company display and rally in the KOA outside of Portland, Oregon. Unfortunately, I don't think the company survived the last economic downturn, but the trailers, truck campers, and motorhomes were all designed and insulated for Canadian winter use. All of the products were very nice.

We lived in Cheyenne for 4 yrs. The cold weather is one thing but the winds are just awful. Its nothing for winds to sustain 60mph for days at a time. We loved the area but the winds are crazy. For that reason we did not have a camper and waited until we moved. If u get one, go hard sided and get a cold weather package. Enjoy Cheyenne, Frontier Days are the best!

I agree with the wife of Toad. I feel for you comin' from LA to Cheyenne.

While you are familiar with the Santa Ana winds, they are nothing compared to what you are going to experience in Cheyenne. There's a reason why just over 1/2 million people live in the whole state and it still looks just like it did when the pioneers came through back in the 1800's in so many places.

Since we don't know what kind of tow vehicle you have, it's tough to recommend a good 4-season trailer for your needs at this point.

Good luck with you move!

what is hard sided? We are looking into Bigfoot Silver Cloud, 28 ft. We found 2 in Canada, so does that mean they are already winterized? We are also looking for a truck to tow it...so is any V8 okay?
Oh, we are not going to Wyoming. We are headed to North Dakota, us and our 8 yr. old son.

For WY there is probably only one RV I could recommend. Teton. They were built in WY, were extremely sturdy and well built. And I might mention extremely expensive. But being built in and for that country it is likely one of only a hand ful of RV's that could possibly survive the weather. Although Teton is no longer in business, and if you had a sufficiently large truck to handle one, it sould still be on the top of the list.

My vote is for Arctic Fox, DRV or Teton. I do not feel that The normal maufacturers that claim and "Arctic-Pac" or "Glacier-pac" are really sub zero units. I'd feel better with a manufacturer that builds a true 4-season trailer rather than one that tries to add a little here and there and claim the cold weather use rating.
