I would never own a trailer without the furnace!

A furnace provides you with far more options when to comes to time of the year and places to camp. Another point, just because you have it doesn't mean you have to use it, until you need to or want to.

We do a lot of camping in late September & October, and in January - March. So we really like having a furnace.

But even if we didn't prefer camping in those months, we would still get the furnace. We leave for the rally in a couple days, and looking at the weather in the rockies it appears there will be lows in the high 30s / low 40s. It is always nice to have the option for heat when the weather isn't what you expect it to be.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments and for not one single person saying "well, that's a pretty stupid thought". We're both new to this and all that. And yeah, I might be over thinking this whole process, but that's why I'm reading this forum and asking questions. It's to learn what I can and to apply it for when we order a trailer. If I didn't ask (and get good feedback from others), I would always wonder "well, what if we did/didn't do this or that).

So, okay, will keep the furnace in. :-)

And yep, Lucy will LOVE any heat that's cranked out. No doubt about that.
