We did a complete gut, keeping the neoprene 'elephant hide" insulation, with a front dinette, rear bed widened to 54 inches and all in Pine A/C plywood with a clear varnish that is yellowing nicely.

We posted some pics of the remod about Jan or Feb 2007. Thanks Donna!

This might sound a little weird but I have a fanless furnace and I added a fan to move the warm air around a little its a small fan and only draws .25 amp and you can hardly hear it. Instead of cutting in and out and waking everybody up, I leave it on all night. It stores out of the way and comes on when you pull it out .

Rick,

I would love to see/hear more about that fan and your installation, if you wouldn't mind. I've got a lot of heat up high and not so much down low

Thank you,

Raya

I had the same problem with all the heat up top, I tried a 12 volt fan but it sounded like a plane taking off, I bought a 12 volt computer fan from Princess auto and a micro switch. This is a picture with fan closed.

I just came across these direct-vent, fan-less, noise-free LP gas heaters (i.e. not ventless, and not catalytic - both intake and flue are outside) and was wondering if anyone had seen one working, or considered putting one in their trailer. I do not know if they are RV-certified (but would find out)... but as far as I can tell, this would be as close as you get from the good old fanless furnaces that manufacturers used to put in.

This is what I am going to look at. I was thinking of running the heat hose in through the electirc port and openning the hatch on that side to let the heat in. I have used a Mr. Buddy (the small one) but I was too paranoid to sleep with it on. (but when it got to NINE degrees, I needed something! The second night I apologized to my tent sleeping buddies and cranked up the honda generator.

I think that it is a seasonal item. I saw somewhere that they will accept orders again in the fall. It is really too hot here now to be thinking of heat! (Heat index is over 105!)

That's exactly the kind of heater we've (Casita owners) have been looking for... except for one thing. Did you look at the specs on it? It's way too large for most small travel-trailer owners (21" wide and 27" high and 4.5" wall thickness minimum.)
