Default Hi-Lo With The Tip-Out Well Insulated?

We have been pretty happy with our 2310. We have seen the many issues people have with their new ones despite the cost of the unit. We have 2 larger dogs, think step-over, step-over again and again, so are considering looking for a 25XX with the tip-out. I am wondering if anyone can advise as to whether it is well insulated. We have weathered temps below freezing, wind gusts of 90 mph and temps over 100 degrees, so are familiar with how the Hi Lo performs in those conditions, but with the tip-out.......... Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated.

We also learned that the Hi-Lo is a conversation starter in the RV park, and often find others standing there just looking and looking at our trailer.

I have an older 2003 22’, no slides and I’ve used it this year in 32 deg weather. The seal between upper and lower sections isn’t perfect and we added temporary insulation to stop drafts. Just thinking a slide / tip out adds a seam and increases opportunity for less than optimal sealing. As long as your heat and Ac do their job to your satisfaction, great.
Perhaps someone with the option you are looking at will have some input.
Happy travels!

We have a 2808 with tip out and the seal around the tip out is better than the seal between the top and bottom halves. We've weathered a few nights in the teens and stayed warm. Of course, the heater was running quite regularly!!

Thanks, sounds good on the tip-out! Yes, as it dips to freezing and below, especially with a wind, it can be difficult to keep just about any trailer warm, although we had a Forest River entry level TT that presented us with a much more difficult winter in NC. The Hi-Lo is better thought out with placement of the plumbing along the inside of the cabinets. We use an electric heater, and just got one that is exceptional, a Stanley squirrel cage heater with a fan that can send the heat from one end of our 2310 to the other and doesn't overheat and cutout like the others. We use the furnace as our backup when the temperature really dips or the wind is especially strong - think Kansas!
