4-season question

Good afternoon. Is Airstream considered a 'true' 4-season travel trailer? Are there any particular problem areas to be aware of when considering 4-season Airstream living?

Thank you

That would depend on what year the trailer is... and how cold it gets..


May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

welcome to the forums rd' !

spend a while reading the threads here...

almost every winter issue is addressed therein, except maybe how to dress fresh game kills in the snow.

living through the seasons vs camping for a while during cold times are very different...

once the water, lpgas, drain pipes, condensation and other simple issues are solved.

after reading some, think about some specific items that matter 2 you and ask away...

all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

Hello I have used mine all year round.(ohio) Alluminum and salt (Road treatment) in the winter dont mix well. You just have to go to a pressure wash place when you can. Like if I am heading south in Jan I stop at a place below W Virginia. get it real good and clean.

I spent all of last January and February in my Overlander just south of Seattle WA. Warm, comfortable, and happy.

The previous year I tried that in a new SOB motorhome. A much less pleasant experience.

my only issue..

In Amarillo last December my 4" sewer line froze solid at 18F in one day. It took a heat gun and finesse to get it un frozen. They say the tanks are heated via furnace however on the Safaris the plumbing hangs down like a scene from mousetrap, probably could not keep it from freezing without some electric heat tape.
