Considering purchase of a used Bird. How are they in a cold environment? I would like to take winter as well as summer trips.

At the present time my wife and I are living full time in a FC35. The weather here gets down to freezing and sometimes stays there for weeks. We have insulated the waterlines and filter, and skirted the bus with heavy denim skirting attached with snaps. we keep a 100 watt lightbulb under the waste water tanks, and have had no problems staying warm even on the coldest nights. We took a trip to Denver Colorado during February last year and was quite comfortable the entire trip. Our coach has three propane heaters, and four hot water heaters running off the engine during travel. when in a campground for long periods where we don't want to use our propane, we use an electric oil filled radiator set in front of the doghouse with a small fan behind it. This is enough to keep the coach at 70 to 75 degrees. The thermostats on the propane heaters ar left at 65 degrees, in case of electric failure during the night.
I hope this answers your questions, if you need further information I can be reached on the internet at M1894@AOL.com
