Hi All- Does anyone have any experience with the Mr. Buddy or Big Buddy propane heaters?  The original furnace in the '77 Brougham was cracked and unusable so we removed it and I am using the space for storage.  We will only need heat occasionally.  Thanks!

Long time dry campers like George and Ms Tioga and Diane's Adventures all use Olympian Wave 3 or 6 heaters... and love them.  Here's one of many links to this product. Link

As with any unvented catalytic heater use caution and crack a window or vent.

i used a oil filled electric portable radiater at half power in my tiny camper.it kept it warm.

Thanks everyone!  We are hoping to use a propane item instead of electric to facilitate off-the-grid and since our gen. is expensive to run we will be using it sparingly.   I will look into the Oympians.  Since my husband is a propane tech, we are overstocked on detectors AND caution.  We won't need heat often, we are probably going to be mainly fair-weather campers and my 2 Irish Wolfhounds generate a lot of heat on their own! You guys are the best.

i use one and work's really nice.....but you want to remember to open a window a little and also the roof vent just a little as the unit does deplete air inside the camper
