My winter boondocking pictures...

Camped out near where I work...much nicer than the 50 min drive...one way back to town...Hunted before work for Elk and deer...I normally love winter camping but without a woodstove in this rig it sure is challenging trying to stay warm and keep pipes from freezing etc...coldest it got was -22C or -9F approx...

It's getting chilly and I really need a woodstove in this old girl....
It's a 1983 fleetwood Pace Arrow.

Anyone else doing winter boondocking...

Your Daddy wasn't in Nam around 68-69 was he? I use to see a fellow in camp that would always welcome us over to rollnsmoke. Been a long time since I've seen,read or spoke that word. Love the pictures.

This was the WS I had in my other motorhome. It would was a bit finiky and would have a fit and "chug" once in a while...smoke would shoot out the door where the air intake was...lol It has 6" douple wall stainless pipe but I think a 5 or 4" pipe would have drifted better with less "chugging"...

I'm boondocking this winter. It's been a challenge heating it. It's an 87 TravelMaster savannah, it's only 21 feet long and I don't really have room for a fireplace. I could remove one of the swivel chairs but it's still pretty small for it.
