I currently use 2 different heaters for my VW.

For propane I have a Zodi Hot Vent which I set up outside on a 20lb tank with a tree, or hanging from the mirror using a disposable bottle.

For electric I use a Vortex which is super quiet & heats the Vanagon very evenly, with a low variable amp draw (120vac)

I do plan on installing a propex heater during my Scamp trailer restoration so it has a perminant heater.

Do you or anyone else have recommendations about electric heaters?

Thanks, Larry A.
