Rick, I think your tunnel will do fine Thumbs up

I have a similar setup (plastic sheeting over PVC hoops), and it has kept lettuce, pak choi, arugula, spinach, and a few other odds and ends alive for me all winter, down to about 20F several times. The only damage is to leaves that were actually touching the plastic, but that should be less of a problem for you since you have a double layer.

You can always throw a blanket over the whole tunnel on the coldest nights, but I'm always too lazy to do things like that Hilarious!
