I know this is old, but I wanted to thank you fir your outstanding contribution here.

My wife and I are likely going to start our first foray into full-timing in an Airstream (a FC30 FB Bunk) in January in NM, so this is great info!

YoddaBuddha, what courage to post this!! I plan to winter in my 2015 FC 25 in Colorado. I always wondered how my 2lb backpacking tent could be 4 seasons (for me), but not a camper, ha ha. Many options for making it through the winter. Worst case scenario winterize the unit and sleep inside its walls as shelter. I do wonder if my FC has any heat running to the “insulated and enclosed underbelly”, I don’t think so. It’s been a minute since your post, but sounds like a great time using your Airstream as a ski cabin!

Could you please give us an update on this experiment in AS winter living?

Your last post below was on 2/4/17, and I think it was your last post on AirForums. Do you still own the Airstream, and howzit going?



Thanks,

Peter

FYI the new search function in the blue box above works great in the desktop version of this site. [not so in the App apparently]

“Winter propane usage” will reveal many disparate threads about using our aluminum tents in the winter. Propane consumption is typically very high — unconscionably? — and plumbing problems from freezing are typical.

FWIW
