We've preparing to leave on another job and we will be in the north texas area for about 6 months. (we still don't know the name of exact town, i just know north of Lubbock) We have been discussing getting some type of skirting for our camper as a precaution, but have heard recently that this isn't necessary for a camper with a basement except under extreme conditions. (ours has the arctic package, for what's thats worth!) I have two questions: 1) Is there validity to this statement about them not being necessary with fifth wheels with basements? 2) Are the winters typically pretty hard in this part of the country? (I've never spent any time in this area I appreciate any input ya'll might have!
