What is a 4 seasons trailer?

You know all the great features that an Arctic Fox 4 seasons trailer has, but you may be wondering what a 4 seasons trailer is in the first place. 

If you like to travel in your RV both in winter and summer, investing in a 4 seasons trailer may be wise. These vehicles are designed to guarantee not only your comfort with reinforced thermal insulation but also your safety on more difficult roads (snow, ice, thunderstorms, snowstorms, etc.).

Here are some criteria that describe best a 4 seasons trailer:

  1. Flawless construction: To meet the 4 seasons requirements, the materials used for the construction of these trailers must meet very specific technical characteristics: in particular high resistance and perfect rigidity. But that is not enough when you want to use your motorhome in winter. This is why manufacturers pay particular attention to the quality of assembly of the sandwich panels.
  1. Foolproof insulation: For optimal comfort, high-performance insulation is essential! This is why manufacturers use Styrofoam for 4 season trailers. Styrofoam has recognized priorities of high sound and thermal insulation and lightness. Guaranteeing the quality of the insulation in your RV, the Styrofoam will provide you with lasting thermal insulation.
  1. 100% polyester as standard: Compared to an aluminum sheet surface, polyester contributes to better trailer insulation. This is why most 4 seasons trailers are 100% polyester: facades, roof and floor.
  1. A double floor: 4 seasons trailer manufacturers have designed a double storage floor combining storage space and thermal insulation. In addition to its storage attractions, the architecture offers reinforced thermal insulation helping to maintain a gentle ambient temperature in the RV.
  1. Well-insulated windows: Trailer windows are a point of vigilance with regard to heat loss. This is why 4 seasons trailers are fitted with double-glazed windows with polyurethane frames. It is also possible to opt for double glazing on the front cabin side windows (except driver’s door) to improve cabin insulation. So you can enjoy the landscapes and the heat!
  1. TRUMA heating system: In most 4 season trailers, the Truma heating system is positioned in the kitchen area, i.e. in the central part of the vehicle, to ensure optimum performance and uniform radiation at the front and rear of the vehicle.

This positioning was determined following tests carried out jointly between TRAUMA and different RV manufacturers.

This functionality is controlled by the CP PLUS control panel with digital display and programming possibility, at the entrance of your vehicle.

  1. ALDE central heating system: Arctic Comfort Plus (depending on models) In collaboration with the ALDE team, RV manufacturers have developed high-end central heating which has been successfully tested in Scandinavian countries. 

Having become a benchmark on the market, this heater offers a uniform temperature in the living area and the cabin (A-class windshield, cabin-living area connection), with the possibility of adjusting the temperature in the room differently. It benefits from the Frost Control system.

The ALDE Comfort Plus Arctic central heating consists of a gas boiler and a heat exchanger.

The gas boiler heats a liquid (60% water / 40% glycol) in a network of pipes and convectors and creates a flow of hot air that rises along the outer walls. Partitions, furniture and the air are gradually heated, forming a barrier of hot air that insulates the windows. To guarantee optimal heating, this system has a maximum of 25 convectors, i.e. the equivalent of 18 meters of convector length.

Final thoughts

Northwood Arctic Fox trailers are 4 seasons, thus better isolated, so the cold doesn’t get in so easily! For many, the winter RV is a dilemma between turning up the heat and therefore using your precious fuel or staying frozen.

The truth is, most RVs aren’t made for the cold, and the ones that are aren’t usually cheap. Older RVs tend to have less efficient insulation and heating mechanisms. So even if you turn the heat on, you will see your heating expenses leaking from any leaks and cracks your RV might have. 

With good weather, the desire to rent a camper and discover the world increases. But with good weather, there is also that suffocating heat, which on some summer days can be especially intense in some areas of the US. 

When you have a 4 seasons trailer you do not have to think about all the above issues, and that is perhaps why Arctic Fox trailers are so popular among Americans!
