I second the more photos thing: Bath, Undercarriage etc.

Looking for a snowboarding rig.
How is the Cold Weather performance on these ?
Single pane windows/well insulated ?
Can the bath be fitted with extra Aerogel insulation ?
Is the bath heated by the furnace ?
Are the tanks insulated/enclosed/heated ?

Sorry to RV geek on you. Might take a look next time I am up in Seattle.

Good call...thanks for the ask...here's more pics (that I have access to right now). I don't have any of the undercarriage on me, but will post when I get back (I'm traveling this weekend).

I second the more photos thing: Bath, Undercarriage etc.

Looking for a snowboarding rig.
How is the Cold Weather performance on these ?

~~~Never driven it in the snow...but I have spoke with a few folks, and heard they are fine with the weight. Thinking you would need to ask someone who has had some experience here to get a solid answer.

Single pane windows/well insulated ?

~~~All of the lower coach windows are double pane. The skylights are single pane, but also have a blackout shade, so would guess that adds some insulation. I've had it in well below freezing temps at altitude, and the Espar heater keeps it plenty warm without any challenge. Espar heater is a diesel turbine heater. It has a second Espar heater for the engine to help warm it up faster at cold temps if you want. It also has what they call a "rest" feature - after stopping the engine from driving, it has a fan that pulls the heat off the engine and distributes it in the coach.

Can the bath be fitted with extra Aerogel insulation ?

~~~Not sure what Aerogel insulation is. The bath portion is a fiberglass structure that is inset of the body in the back. There are air gaps all around it, and you can access them, so I think you could blow in insulation in these areas if needed. Is that what you are thinking?

Is the bath heated by the furnace ?

~~~Yes, the Espar has 3 vents, 2 in the front coach, and one in the bath (which you can open/close as needed)

Are the tanks insulated/enclosed/heated ?

~~~The tanks are in the coach, so if you are warm in there, they are fine. I don't believe it has any extra heaters for the tanks.

Sorry to RV geek on you. Might take a look next time I am up in Seattle.

~~~No worries, geek outs fully welcome. Let me know if you want to check it out.
