Texas weather is pretty unpredictable, but we usually have pretty good weather till late January here in central Texas(the WBCCI midwinter rally is January 10-14 in Conroe, SE of Dallas). Our unit is planning to attend that rally and serve one of the meals. This year, we had a forum rally in January.
The I-20 into Dallas leg and the I-10 portion just west of that probably risk the worst weather since fronts come down through the panhandle and often stall out about along that line. Worst case, you might get a bit of sleet or temporary road icing with a real strong front. Not real likely, though. Subsoil will be too warm for any long-term icing. Risk is highest on the return trip.
I would watch the weather and winterize the trailer only if some real cold nights are predicted. Good chance you will get away without doing so.
