Winter and RV's

We just bought a vengeance toy hauler. Does anybody know how warm the toy hauler part stays? I was planning on put the kids out there to sleep on the bunk. We will be in WY so we are talking extreme cold outside like negative 30.

They will freeze their little butts off ! I am confident without some form of an additional space heater and some very expensive sleeping bags, they would be very cold.

I do not think that hauler section has as much insulation as the main living area. Most RV's do not have much insulation to be honest, only so much you can fit into approx 2 inch thick wall.

I agree, it will be far too cold to have kids in the rig. I doubt the unit could be kept warm.

At -30*F, none of you will stay warm, especially if it's windy.

Very bad and probably deadly idea.

Why don't you stay out there to see how cold it gets?


The main part won't be warm either.

Hey Russellcrew, not to be a jackass but in sub 30 degree temps sleeping in the toy hauler portion will likely be the least of your concerns. Frankly that unit will not likely be functional with temps that low. I don't think you could keep it warm, or thawed? Best of luck to you, be safe.

I am sure this was meant just to rile us up. There is no way anyone would put kids out in the toy hauler bunks in -30*. No way.

-30*F in an RV

Even if you can keep the kids warm, your plumbing will freeze.

I cannot believe that was a serious question.
