    We got our pup out of storage today and brought it home and parked it in our side yard. The dogs are relaxed and hubby is at the table watching the hockey game. I'd turned the fan off. Hubby zipped up the windows and we have our heater on now. They say it'll get down to 40 here tonight. We'll see how it goes. Happy camping!

    My husband picked up another cheap heater (Arvin 1320) to test out. It got down in the 40's last night but stayed 65 inside our camper.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of camping in all (or most) weather. I can't really tell from your pic, but it doesn't look like you have many, or any, heat retention measures. Those are as important as the furnace and any supplemental heater you may have. You are, after all, heating an enclosure with fabric walls.
    While we don't deliberately camp when it's under 20, we managed trips in the teens with both of our pups. Here's a section with ideas for camping in cold weather:

    Great pic! :D
    Your dogs obviously love their camper. It's nice that they allow you to camp with them!;)

    We tore down on April 26th and haven't put it back up. It's been raining everyday here and we're still under a flood warning. All of us miss it though!
    This week the husband and I puchased some more clear plastic containers for storing items. These containers will fit under our bench seats and in our cupboards/drawers.
