[QUOTE=D Davis;446712]Gandor Mt has mr heater buddy for less and free shipping

Earlier today we drove 45 miles to a Gander Mt store to return a camp stove that was an impulse buy at another store in PA on our way home from SC. Could not find a Buddy Heater anywhere in that store even though the web site said they had them. Disappointed that Gander Mt does not have some of their merchandise out of the boxes on display.

I've considered getting just this little one, for the small size. It seems to have nice safety features in a small package. Its a 'little Buddy' heater

We have that little one. It's OK. This winter we used it a few times to supplement the electric heater in our screen room when the temps dropped into the 40's. Using 2 electric heaters overloaded the power cord.

I've got the small Mr Heater that I used in a class A and had plenty of room for clearance as per the manufactures specs. I now have a SD 17 and can see no place that those numbers can be met. So my question; is anyone using this unit in a 17 and where are you placing it ?

I use a Portable Buddy in a 1972 Corsair (21') in -20c weather while fishing for Steelhead. I keep the Roof vent cracked and a window cracked for cross ventilation and also a 12v fan (boondocking) that I place close to the window to draw fresh air in and it also circulates the warm air.I had the Buddy heater tested for CO2 emissions by a Gas technician friend with his $700.00 dollar tester and the levels were very low.I also have a Portable CO2 monitor I place above the heater on a shelf as backup to the one on the Buddy heater.(P.S.) If you are the market for one of the best fans any camper or sail boater should have when running off your battery, try the 12V fan made by a company here in Ontario called Caframo. The draw on the battery is next to nothing and the amount of air circulation is amazing. Its great for moving heat around in your trailer or keeping you cool in the summer.It retails for around $55.00 CAD.John

Also Wal-Mart sells them. We have one we keep in the Scamp. With it just on the pilot it will keep the unit warm. We also crack a window. We have slept with ours on.

I would think that the Little Buddy(3,800 BTU) models would be perfect for our trailers which are very compact in size.

Mr. Heater is based about 50 minutes from us.

Will the Runt have a means of ventilation. I won't sleep with a Buddy heater on. How about electric hookup, many of us use small electric heaters.

The buddy heats my little Scamp 16 ft just fine, I used it before in my Shasta and it heated it too. I do crack a window and have a CD detector as well.

Our models will start out as simple as a door only to possibly wired for electric with a upper cabinets in the rear with a small TV and roof vent. The customers will basically dictate what the unit will have.

I really do not plan on selling the heaters with the trailer yet merely suggest them as a very affordable way to keep warm on chilly nights.

We use the electric heat strip in the Air Conditioner when hooked up to electric. It doesn’t take much to heat the 19 Scamp.
