While I don't have experience with RV January delivery in NY, I do have experience in using an RV in NY in January. I live near Rochester, NY and do travel to FL in December. I have done this with my previous 34ft toy hauler. In my toy hauler, I used de-winterize before we left home and have the heat on.
Now, with the Aspire, I can keep it plugged in an use it when ready through out the winter. Drive slowly in the snow and don't be in any hurry; you will be fine.
I'd have the dealer put water in the coach so you can test items before delivery. Turn on the basement heater, in-floor heat and the heater and you will be fine.
