13 Best 4 Season Campers With Pictures

Road trips and camping expeditions are popular in the summer. However, this doesn’t mean that you should hang up your gear for the rest of the year. With four season travel trailers, you can keep the fun times rolling both in the heat of summer and throughout the cold winters.

As you look for a four season, there are a few features that you have to look out for to make sure that your camper provides everything you need. This list includes things like the proper insulation on the wall and ceiling, heating ducts, hatch covers, pex pipes, dual pane windows, and a good furnace. Although it is not a must for the trailer to have all these features, the more it has the better your experience will be, especially during winter.

Additionally, there are a number of extra features that you might appreciate. These features are what will make it feel more like home. At the same time, they’ll make your trips more comfortable. Before you buy, look at the sleeping capacity, the floor plans, the water tank capacities, and how much storage space the camper has.

Under the bed area, there is double covering because more pressure is exerted there. The water tank also has a winterized system.

A feature I loved was the pantry, which has metal shelves, making it more beautiful and durable.

In the kitchen, you can make your meals on the three-burner cooktop and the oven beneath it. There is also enough counter space for you to work with, especially since the sink cover can work as a cutting board.

How Cold is Too Cold for an RV?

If you are out camping in temperatures under 35°F, then the pipes in the RV are in danger of freezing. Before you set off in such conditions, ensure your RV can survive the trip with no damages.

How Do I Stop My RV Pipes from Freezing?

When the temperatures get too low, the pipes may freeze and burst. Here are a few things you can do to prevent this:

  • Wrap your hoses with heat strips.
  • Open the kitchen and bathroom cabinets so that the heat from the trailer can also heat the pipes.
  • Use antifreeze in the gray and black tanks.

Do You Put RV Antifreeze in the Freshwater Tank?

RV antifreeze is a pink solution that is pumped into the water tanks to prevent the contents from freezing. It does this by bringing the boiling point of the water lower so that nothing freezes.

This antifreeze is a non-toxic chemical, which means it can be drunk. If you decide to put it in your freshwater tank, you should know that there have been complaints that it changes the taste of the water.

You should also keep in mind that if you plan on using it, you should ensure that all of it is flushed out of the piping system so that the water from the tanks doesn’t taste funny.

Things to Consider for Cold Weather

Here are some things you need to consider before you take your camper out in the winter:

  • Pex piping. This is the use of plastic water lines. These are more affordable than metal pipes and they are less likely to burst under low temperatures.
  • RV skirting. This means placing some material around the camper. This serves as a stopper between the wind and the trailer, especially the underbelly which loses more heat.
  • You can also think about getting foam boards for the window to block the wind and you can put them up overnight and take them down during the day.
  • Consider investing in a space heater. The AC on the camper might not work as effectively as you need it to, and you might need some extra help. When shopping for one, check for its BTU so that you are getting a unit that gets the job finished.
