possible interior exterior damage

I have a 1975 argosy trailer, 22ft. rear entry model.I have been using it this winter to spend weekend outings in.I live close to Montreal, Quebec, Canada.Needless to say at this time of year we have a fair amount of snow and it has been very cold. I'm wondering what possible damages can be caused to the interior, exterior from the freeze and thaw effect.One night it was -25degrees f outside and I heated the trailer to 75 degrees inside.I open the vent above the stove and turn on the fan to get rid of the condensation, though I donot get rid of it all.I worry about the insulation becoming wet within the ceiling and walls.Also the snow on the roof outside begins to melt and I am concerned about the moisture from this ,finding it's way in through the outer seams.

appreciate all replys greatly

Personally, I don't think it is a big deal. Living in the Chicago area, we too have some pretty cold weather. Before our Airstream(s), my family had SOBs that went through the same weather and the VERY humid Chicago summers.

The moisture has to get in the interior. As long as there are no "leaks" into the inner walls where the water can get in, I think you should be fine.

PS- Can you get me some Cubans (Cigars)?

Thanks for your quick reply.To tell you the truth ,I almost don't give a dam,I'm enjoying it so much!I have it parked up at my cottage , which is relatively uninsulated, so I stay in the trailer instead.Because of my new argosy ,I'm able to see and experience my property in a different way.I may not even move back into my cottage come spring time. thanks again, Ray

P.s. I'll do my best on the cigars
