Love Your RV: Cold weather RVing in our Keystone Cougar trailer

Listen to this story

WASHINGTON — In this video, I go over some of the preparations and methods we use to deal with camping in below freezing weather. Being snowbirds, we aren’t hardcore cold weather RVers by any means, but once in a while, we encounter short term, chilly periods dipping into the low 20s Fahrenheit.
