Airstream versus Forest River Wildcat

Hello All,

Am asking a question for which RV would be better to make it through an Oklahoma winter. My 1996 40ft Hyline Fifth wheel was in an accident en route to my location. I was borrowing it from my in-laws to save money. Now that it has been totaled, I need another home for the next 12-18 months.

Which would be better for an Oklahoma winter (Claremore, near Tulsa).

I really want to go bargain basement, but still survive the winter.
Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.
(and no - there aren't any apartments available)

John, I do not feel that the older Air Streams are well suited for cold weather living. If you wnat to go aluminum, try finding a mid to late 1980s Avion. Better built and insulated.

Plus you will get a better price on an Avion over the pricey Air Streams.
