Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

How good of camper do we need?

We are wanting to snowbird, this winter if we can, we have a 2004 keystone Laredo 5th wheel  , it has an enclosed bottom but only single pane windows. We are looking at south Texas for this year. tell me if this is good or if it is a bad plan.

South Dakota can be cold.

Wintering in South Texas sounds a whole lot better to me than South Dakota. There are many people that do exactly as you are proposing, some in a lot less trailer than what you are asking about. I guess it depends on how bad you want to get out of the snow and what your finances will allow. Go for it, if you dont like it you can always go back to SD.

You should be fine.  If you have problems w/ the single pane windows you can always add a layer of window cling plastic on the exterior of the windows.  We did that and I was impressed w/ how well it worked and how hard it was to see it.  Also, as long as you have electricity you can add an electric space heater.
