My RV has turned into an igloo

This is only temporary. That’s what I keep telling myself when I look out in in my snowy Michigan driveway and instead of seeing our Roadtrek eTrek out there, we only see an igloo.

Look for yourself at the accompanying photos.

We got our first big snow over the weekend and while it indeed is looking a lot like Christmas, it just seems, well, wrong, to see the RV covered under all that white stuff.

I snowblowed the driveway and then took some photos before I removed as much of the snow as I could. The top solar panels are covered in snow, so I doubt they are trickle charging. I will get up there with a ladder today and get them cleared off.


I also went through the Radtrek and brought anything with a battery – like my clock and my outdoor/indoor thermometer and my walkie talkies – inside, where the cold won’t drain the batteries.

Somehow, even with all that snow, I found beauty in the Roadtrek’s lines.


I started the engine and the heater, warmed it up good and hung out in it for a few minutes.


Soon, loyal eTrek, as soon as Christmas is over, we will hit the road to warmer climes.


I promise.

  1. I like class B RVs and wish I had one. But why are they all so expensive? I’ve had 2 class C RVs. There should be more basic models in the class B models. At my age I don’t need all those bells and whistles. We aren’t all rich and able bodied.

  2. And you Americans thought all the igloos were in Canada. Ha ha ha! It is warm and sunny here with some showers in beautiful BC. You should head here if you want a warmer climate. 🙂

  3. Had a Roadtrek a few years ago. Wish I could afford another one. I agree with Patti. Why are they so expensive? Need models for those of us who aren’t made of money, but would like to travel safely. Just a thought.
