Is it possible to travel in the winter in the colder areas?
Yes, however, in locations with harsh winter weather, our motorhomes are "winterized" from approximately November to March. This means we have completely drained the water and holding tanks. This will prevent the tanks and pipes from freezing and bursting. If you chose water in the motorhome during your Winter trip please contact the rental center to discuss. Fees for re-winterizing at the end of the trip will apply. Alternately, you may leave the unit winterized and use the toilette by flushing it with windshield washer fluid which is an antifreeze. You will need to exercise extreme care while traveling in a "de-winterized" motorhome during frigid weather. You will need to run the heater at all times to protect the tanks and pipes from freeze damage, or in extreme cases you would need to put RV Anti-Freeze in the water and holding tanks (by doing so, you may not use any water systems). If the pipes or tanks were damaged from freezing, it is considered negligent damage and you will be responsible for the full cost of all repairs. If you have any more questions on the rental policies during winter, please contact the rental center where your trip would originate. They can provide you with specific information. Back to top
