Mini oil filled radiator/heater
#1
Morning campers  Smile. Does anybody use a mini electric oil filled radiator for heating when on electric hook up. Ive been looking at a 500watt on from Screwfix

When the boot jump is in sleep configuration I was thinking it could sit on the center cubby hole between the seats. It is 434mm x 282mm x 128mm which in old money is approx. 17" x 11" x 5" Has anybody used anything similar for winter camping nights out ? Any other suggestions would most welcome, thanks in advance.  Smile

They are the safest type of heater imaginable, no exposed sources of ignition, not too hot on the surface and usually have a rotary temp control so I'd say yes indeed.

The bottom of them have wheel mounts, I'd maybe sit it on a piece of timber or MDF just so it doesn't warp your plastics that it would be sitting on. But shouldn't need to be set to high temps to heat the cabin.

I was thinking you could bolt a timber skid to the wheel mounting points and that would insulate it from the center console.

Cheers my mate. Just what i was thinking. I've just found a Daewoo 800watt one at Home Bargains for £14.99 It measures approx 15"high including the handle, 11.5" long and the fins are 4" across and like you said its got the thermostat so you have control over the heat. So I think I will go for that one. Thanks for your input  Smile

Not really an option in a remote camping spot with no hook up in that case?
