For what it's worth we love our BigFoot 10.11C and spend lots of time camping in the winter, in fact we hope to roll out to the Oregon coast right after Christmas.

Whatever the weather does enjoy the season, stay healthy and get out in your rigs whatever they may be.

I tell ya, now that Snowriver and Bigfoot are out of the picture, Citation/Corsair make a great winterised camper. I'm pretty sure the Polar Package comes standard now. If they are as good as my 5'er I'd buy one in a heartbeat if I could................................Steve... fing32.gif



Merry Christmas Steve. I believe you are right.....the Polar Package is standard equipment on their truck campers. Is it time to trade in the 5'er for Citation Truck camper now????? wink.gif wink.gif

We also agree other Citation/Corsair owners that with the Polar Pkg. thermal window and insulation it remains toasty. But to keep my ice cube other half warm I did have to put a remote l furnas stat next to her in bed and get a 12 volt dual control bed warmer on the mat.

Another vote for the Corsair/Citation. The newer Citations are even better. When we were looking, it came down to S&S, Bigfoot and Corsair for a used winter camper we could afford.

Ended up with the 2001 Corsair 10' 8" with polar package and no slides. Nicest part this past week was no condensation on the double pane skylights in the bathroom and above the table. The new double pane FanTastic Vent domes stayed condensate free as well.

We are up at 7,000 feet in the Sierra and have been skiing the past 5 days. It took 5 days to go through 4 gallons of propane. Outside overnight lows in the 15 to 20 F range, basement never was below 45 F, with the camper interior temperature at 55 to 60 F all the time. Averaged 35 Ah of battery usage per day.

While it is well insulated, enough heat goes through the roof, such that with a foot of snow on the roof, we have several 2" diameter icicles bridging from the front of the camper to the hood of the truck. The storm of epic proportions that is supposed to dump 3-4 feet of snow tonight and tomorrow sadly seems to be going further south and we'll only get a foot or two. Still, can't complain too much about a foot or two of 20 F powder.

Happy Holidays.

The good news is I checked out my SR today. With the inside heated up to 60, the snow has not melted off the roof at all. If this weather continues I will get a good indication of how good it is when Ii head off in Jan. my Adventurer was nto a good cold weatehr camper. We froze up in the cabover.

I have been a tent camper since my Boy Scout days long, long, ago. Now I need to get up off of the cold ground to get a good nights rest, a truck camper seems to be the best choice. I am here to learn as much as I can.

Well we sure aren,t kicking ourselves for buying the 1181 we love the large holding tanks and the layout the bath is also much nicer according to the one that puts makup on everyday. Its not as insulated as our corsair but we honestly don,t notice a diff the way we use it and this is a guy that owned two 10-8 citations .

There should be a way to objectively test camper insulation properties in a more scientific manner.
I would guess that heating a camper to 70 degrees, holding that temperature for one hour, then turning off the heat for one hour, two hours, then three hours and clock the temperature decline at each 30-minute interval would provide some meaningful comparisons.

The exterior temperature conditions would have to consistent too. . .temperature and wind speed.
No wind speed would be a requirement. Having the exterior temperature recorded and then the interior temperature decline recorded would tell us something.

Now. . .if only we could get manufacturers to comply. . .

When we had our 99 citation 10-8 problems brought us back from AZ to Windsor at the end of Feb we parked out in the lot at my moms condo with a small extension cord from the house. It was cold about 30 and windy so I set the furnace at 55 and we slept in the house everytime I went out there the furnace was running and the 20LB was on its second tank after only 2 days. Yes the wind made a very big diff in how much the furnace would run. I talked to a guy last year with a 1121 Lance and he was in Buffalo when it was 8 degrees and he used 30 LBs in 2 days.

This weekend for three days we heated our 2000 Citation 10'6 no-slide TC with a small electric ceramic fan heater on the low power setting. it cycled every 15 mins for a moment. it was about 30 degrees F and windy, and snowed about 4 inches. at one point i went on the roof and pushed off a snow drift that covered a skylight. The window frames got a bit of condensation on them, but keeping the roof vents cracked really did the trick of keeping excess moisture from steaming up the windows. We had a sheltered campsite with fir trees blocking much of the direct blast of wind, so I know that really helped.

Guess I am a little surprised to see a 30k btu heater in a camper, how can you possibly use that much heat?

My triple slide Host uses the 15/22k btu variable speed furnace and never comes out of low once the camper has been heated, even in freezing temperatures. Seems like having a large unit would lead to huge variances in temperature.

My furnace only draws 2.9 amps in low speed and keeps the interior at a very even temperature with very little noise.

The TC industry really needs to make these standard, especially given the smaller space we're heating.

And now how did you get that furnace when I talked to them he said they put only the 20,000 btu in there triple slide. I know what you mean about the low speed keeping an even temp. How much easier was the Host to heat compared to the Lance I think you have a thicker ceiling and walls .

i'd love to have a low power fan-only option in my camper furnace, just like in the home furnace. constantly circulating air at a very low speed.

I,d bet that 2 speed furnace wouldn,t cost that much more, it could be at least an option.

The snowbird I had was a 30k furnace and prior to changing the tstat to an electronic one with a small temp differential the temp swings were huge from "man it's cold .....to dam it's hot and when is that thing going to shut off". After your unit is up to say 70f do you find that the furnace runs on low continuosly or does it cycle on and off. Are the cycle more frequent and longer in duration when on low? Is the high /low setting a manual switch or is it automatic?

Dan, Great to hear from you.

If I have any problems with my current furnace I will change it to the dual unit. I had Bob install a digital Tstat when they built it. You are correct the original bi-metal stat did not do a great job providing an even temperature. On draw back to the digital with the 30k furnace is that it runs short intervals very often. Annoying to say the least. Have a great new year and stop by if you are down this way.

When I changed my Tstat it also ran on short intervals as well. Our bigfoot motorhome came with a digital stat that controls heat and Ac and it to cycles often. This dual speed and heat output furnace sure sounds great to me........ it really has me thinking.

Gary there were a lot of features in my Lance that were not available in other campers. Dave and the crew at Host were willing to work with to build what I call a "Lost." It's the best of both built into a package that suited my needs. To my knowledge Lance is the only one using a variable speed heat/air system. I loved it in my 1181, and demanded it be installed in the Host.
