I have these labels on the side of my trailer near the front entrance. What does the one that states, "Arctic Barrier" mean? Does it mean I can camp in the Artic Areas in comfort?



My rig:
2011 Keystone Outback 250RS - Anniversary Edition

Thanks!

I'm no expert but from what I have picked up from others, it's a marketing thing to make owners believe that their trailers can handle temperatures below freezing. The underbelly isn't insulated well enough to keep the tanks and water lines from freezing even with the heat ducts running down there so it isn't worth much.

The corrugated plastic sheeting covering the underbelly is the same material used for political signage, if that tells you anything! I’m sure it helps in some climates but I wouldn’t take my rig into a deep freeze environment. Here in Florida it sometimes gets down to 35* or so for a few hours overnight but have never had a problem with tanks or water flow.
