We are looking at finding a used true 4 season unit. Know of; Lance, Grand Design, Nash/Arctic Fox, what other brands are out there that are 4 season that I'm missing?

None are true 4 season. When you get down to freezing temperature, they just don't cut it.

I had a Nash and now have an Arctic Fox. Have used both at temps a bit below zero with no problem.

Grand Design is definitely NOT 4 season. If you consider them satisfactory, then others like Cougar should be included too.

Arctic Fox, Nash, and Outdoors RVs all seem to perform pretty well in colder temps. I've read that Lance also does pretty well.

Units with slides lose a lot more heat.

If price is not a concern, some fiberglass clamshell trailers like Oliver and Bigfoot perform well too.

Thanks on the heads up on GD. We owned a Casita and thought Oliver was constructed similar: "ratfur rug glued to shell" not offering much R factor. I'll check out Bigfoot.

I had a previous 27-5L and now have a newer one, and both did fine with temps very near zero F. The newer one is actually better.

I have had two different Arctic Foxes at near zero F and they were fine. The newer one even had 35 plus mph winds at temps under 5 degrees F, and we were cozy and had running water. What else can you ask for? We are happy with our choice.

Bigfoot and Escape are both Canadian manufacturers that cater to cold-weather campers.

We've been down to -5F...that gets a little marginal but doable if you have a good supply of propane.

But down in the teens, no issues...even with a non-4 season unit.

Currently have a basic 25ft Gray Wolf and other than condensation on the windows (single pane) when it get's into the low 20's, it handled last winter fine. Usually a small 1500w space heater was enough to keep it warm.
