Has anyone used electric blanket when sleeping in airstream? Think this would be option instead of many blankets.

Yes. We have a blanket that operates on 120 volts. We also have one that operates on 12 volts DC.
You would need shore or generator power to use the 120 blanket.

We use an electric blanket, too. It was an excellent investment.

We have an electric mattress pad, and use it in cool weather when we have shore power - it works very well. Have not tried it when dry camping. We just bundle up and huddle.

It is that time of the year again for some locations. I thought it might be a good time to move this thread to the front page again. Some good advice/info here for the young and old alike.

Down. Down everything. Down blankets, down comforters, down bed pads, down slippers, down coats, down towels. except maybe that last one.

First time for me to post to this board. My wife and I are 98% sure that we want to go full time BUT are biggest concern is winter temps. Can we stay comfortable in an AS during the day? Nighttime is covered with down (magical properties), it's the waking hours I'm concerned about. I'd hate to sit in the truck with the heater running :-)

ARA, might need a bit more information about where you'll be wintering.

Airstream is not a 4Season trailer but plenty have done it once, season, storm, trip.

Be prepared, are you boondocking or hookups, lots of propane use.

Tell us more.

My wife and I are really consumed by this "full time " dream. I'm realizing that for 12-16 weeks out of the year we'll just have to hug the southern portion of the country. But realizing that's a huge area! We both are watching countless hours of YouTube, a plethora of knowledge. We tend to research things to death but I learned early on in my life, "prior proper planning prevents poor performance ".

Micro fleece tops and leggings are warm, wonderful and inexpensive...big thing is to keep something warm on your feet.

I like to drink whiskey and burn my furniture. Takes much less thought.

If you have hook ups those little ceramic space heaters work wonders. Fleece lined slippers or mocs on the feet are a must. The floor is always cold. Norwegian heavy wool socks with leather soles are a good thing.
