We still have one more (long) weekend to go at Gettysburg Campground the 26th-29th. Halloween weekend #2 there. Been going there for over 20 years now.

I'd be interested in more info on the radiant flooring. Is that from the heated underbelly or is it more complicated than that?

It gets it heat from the underbelly. In a 5th wheel it also amounts to extra layers in the floor for more insulation.

That sounds warmer than the Sprinter travel trailer we have used for the last 12 years. We just got a Riverstone 5th wheel that is supposedly 4 season...tank heat pads, heated underbelly, dual pane windows. It sounds like maybe our floors my be warm in the cold weather.

KZ does not indicate four seasons but they do advertise it as extended stay. Don't know if they are still doing that as they are now owned by Thor.


The other trick we have learned for cold weather, below freezing is to fill the fresh water tank and then store your hose. Feeding off the tank will allow for full access to water and storing the hose should allow it to remain usuable to add more water.


Trick is if you are staying at a place that you can get more water. Otherwise have it on board before you depart.


The other is your sewer connections. Don't bother to put the hoses out till you need to dump. They will become frozen and break. Just use and store away.

This an aside, but it is an important one. If you are using space heaters, don't forget they do not keep tanks from freezing, so unless you have separate tank heaters, the furnace has to run sometimes to warm the tanks. I have had to do incredible replacements when folks forgot that and froze their systems.

Sitting in my office, my wife was reading this site over my shoulder and shocked me saying that we should do some mild type of winter camping.

Maybe year round campground in Vermont or New Hampshire. Before the major snows. No problem with cold, but driving in snow can be unnerving to her.

One of the nice things about camping in the "off-season" is no fighting for spaces or crowds.

Bud, If you were at G'burg CG right now, you would be wading through ankle deep mud since it has rained from a light drizzle to hard 3 out of the last 4 days. We are currently on site 72 but leave for Powhatan, VA in the AM -- and hope to see the sun again before we trek back North and the winter blahhhhs

I've stayed at Mystic KOA for a June wedding in Mystic, and enjoyed the location of the campground. Just haven't been back in years. But it is something to look at, thanks

I know what the C/G can be like in the rain! We have (and always have had) spot 59 at the back of the C/G by the creek (sometimes raging river).
It's a very large spot that we make great use of. Kids catch lots of crayfish in the creek too. We'll be there next Thursday!
