Best FT Rv for temps teens to 100+?

What Rv is most comfortable for FT living and staying on a lot that has a house? Temperatures can range in the upper teens Fahrenheit on some winter nights and over 100 Fahrenheit in the summer.

Why not stay in the house that is on the same lot?

There's not enough room in the house. Plus, there are issues with pets.

Well if not moving it very often get a "park model". It looks more like a tiny house.

Which ones? Also, which ones have good insulation? I understand The Excel is a very gpod choice but the manufacturer has closed. Highlander was mentioned as a good FT Rv, but I am new to the Rv world. I'm looking for specific models to start researching. Thanks.

The house isn't big enough. Plus, there are issues with pets.

Are you looking at a MH or some other RV? What kind of budget are you working with? Will this be something that mostly sits in one place for long periods of time or will it see significant time on the road?

In production motorhome brands Newmar and Entegra Coach appear to offer some of the best insulation values.

If you are looking at something like a 5th wheel then I think you will find some better insulation options.

Any other information on your intended use will be helpful.

Definitely look for one with dual pane windows. RVs really aren't meant to be in those extremes constantly....a vacation, o.k., but not year-round. You'll be spending a lot of money on propane for heat and electric for air conditioning.

A Park Model trailer or mobile home would better suit your problem. Good luck!

5th wheels include Spacecraft, New Horizons, DRV, Continental, Americana RV, Lifestyle RV,
The usual rhetoric only mentions cold weather as an issue, the fact is, hot or cold weather requires the same amount of insulation if you want to reduce expenses when living in either climate. Most "4-season" RV's have less than R-7 insulation values and 2" walls. You pay for what you get, properly constructed walls are required to make room for the highest R-value insulation. The floor, ends, and roof are easier to insulate with a higher R-value.
Insulation is not the only factor for extreme temperature RV living though.
