The vintage trailer accommodations on that website look pretty cool, too,  They really knew how to do trailers in the 50's.

Here is a pretty cool weather/weather history site that RichardM pointed out to us: http://weatherspark.com/#!graphs;a=USA/TX/Marfa

If you move to the date in question you can see the record highs and lows for any hour of any day as well as the mean temps. For instance on June 27th the 10PM record high is 88 degrees and the record low is 62 degrees and a mean of 74 degrees. Then as the night progresses towards dawn those numbers drop to  71, 55, and 60 respectively.  Seems doable in a teepee, especially if you bring an electric fan. If it happened to be 88 when I was trying to get to sleep, I would definitely need a fan.

When traveling to BBRSP we usually spend the night in Marfa at the Hotel Paisano.  The architecture is beautiful and the rooms are comfortable, if not a little "historic."  Our children were amazed that the rooms locked with an old fashioned key!

We usually head out to in the evening to look for the "ghost lights." 
Hope you have an excellent trip!
