Im new

Thanks for some good info on insulation we plan to put a 5th wheel trailer on Vancover Island in British Columbia some time in the next couple of years, when I can finally retire. It has been a toss up between a couple of makes. The Hitchiker Champagne or the Excel ltd. Hopefully which ever one I do get it will make it thru the winters on the island.

Victoria Island Eh! Do You mean the One way up North in the Arctic? OR are You meaning Vancouver Island off the Coast of BC where the Provincial Capital City of Victoria is located!

There is a BIG Difference in Climate Conditions between the two Islands!

Victoria Island is only habitable for 6 weeks of the year whereas Vancouver Island is usually quite Balmy Year Round! I live on Vancouver Island a few Hours North of Victoria.

Yes I meant Vancover island, I have gotten into a bad habit of calling it Victoria Island.

That's Ok !
I met a Couple in Baja Mexico who ran a Hunting/Fishing Business on Victoria Island in the High Arctic! 6 week season, BRRRRRH!

The main concern here isn't so much Cold weather as the Dampness that seeps into Your very Bones during the winter Months. Our solution is to head South right after Xmas!

Any well insulated RV should work well for You!
