Welcome to North Dakota, if you are comfortable with towing your trailer you will be fine towing your trailer here. As for as tires go if you are not over loaded and NOT speeding (60mph) and over heating your tires they will be fine. I have been towing your size trailer for many years and I have never had an issue. As far as the roads go our DOT does an excellent job of keeping the roads clean and free of ice. With that said if there is a blizzard or ice storm you will need to give yourself extra time and wait out the storm. My DW and I just got back from South Dakota and Wyoming pulling our 2200RB over two 9600ft passes covered with snow and ice and camping at 8500ft. I kept it slow and we didn't have any issues. (North Dakota doesn't have any mountains just wind) Parking your RV when you get here will be pretty easy depending on where you are moving. Larger towns have lots you can park and smaller towns have lots of open area. As for snow and salt on your trailer we do have indoor heated car was stalls that will fit your trailer. Welcome to North Dakota.

I have driven in snow and on ice many miles for work, travel, hunting etc.. It's not fun, it's not really safe. Even if your the only vehicle on the road. I had never had a problem until, I had a problem. If and when you do just hope someone does not get hurt. For me it's like running a jet boat up or down a wild river. Every trip or every day is different on that same road or river, what worked last time might kill you this time. Any little problem that you have had on bare pavement and you recovered without ending with a crash will not happen on ice. Snow can be more forgiving. You asked here's my answer I would learn how to drive in that weather before towing anything in it, period.

Thanks everyone for the candid feedback. We have decided to leave her in storage until the spring and come back for her then. I reckon on the bright side this gives me plenty of time to save some $ for those new tires and scope out some good places to stop in the warmer weather!

Thanks again.
