Hello all,
I'm the proud new owner of a 19' Bonair oxygen. I would like to install a gas furnace for those chilly fall/spring nights. However, I've been told it will be difficult due to the lack of flat wall space for the vent.
Looking for options,

We use a little electric ceramic micro-furnace
Works well
There is a hose under our bench by door and I think a mark on the fiberglas where you can punch out an opening. I called to an Alberta Dea;er who had sold a number of trailers and had installed something like a top of a butane heater to the hose and sat it on the floor. I didn't like the sound of that -hence the $40-50 heater.It was June in Michigan - got the last one to be had then - had to go to camping world to find one. Any hardware store we found had sold their's off in the winter. We weren't picky- just freezing cold. It had started to wartm up again by the time we found a heater !

RV water heaters are generally designed to mount in a flat exterior wall, and the solution is mould a surrounding adapter (or transition piece) in fiberglass, which is visible in photos of trailers such as my Boler 1700 (see the same setup on a different variation of B1700 in an Album photo). With the water heater, it's a large square heater door, so the whole thing is quite a wart on the curve of the trailer, but for a typical furnace vent it could be quite small and blend in much better.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
