What do you need to look for in a 5th wheel to be used for all weather camping?

Lots of insulation, dual pane glass, inside covers for the ceiling vents/skylights, heated tanks, and an enclosed area for the tank drain valves and water hook-ups. This last one is hard to fund on trailers, but it makes it much easier to prevent freeze-ups at the tank valves. There is always water on the tank side of the dump valve, so exposing it to outside air is a risk.
