Blue Flame Heaters

I have a 16 foot Scamp. We camp in the back country and want to extend our camping season. I am think of installing a Blue Flame heater.
What are your experience with them and what brands are people using ?
I am looking at Mr. Heater 20,000 BTU Blue flame heater #MHVFB20LPBT or #MHVFB20TBLP $200.
Thanks Dave

All of my camping is in the Sierra's or other back country area's.
The last 4 or 5 years I've camped at close to 9000 feet elevation due to the drought and a lack of snow.
Some of the trips were down to the mid 20's.

I had no problem with the standard Suburban that came with the trailer.
Between my down sleeping bag, a down comforter over that and a programmable thermostat that turned the furnace on at 7 AM I was comfortable.

I used (And actually still have) a pro-com blue flame for about 3 years. I really like it. I full time in moderate climates, but have used it as low as the low teens. In a 16 footer, even then you will stay toasty.

Its stowed in a cubby right now. I need to plumb it into my Leocraft. But..you know how THAT goes..I'll get round to it...eventually :-P

If you check, the Mr. Heater is only good up to ?????? ft. above sea level. What will be your camping elevation?
