Im assuming you mean the mini gas heaters like the coleman or blackwolf?
From what I was told the problem with these is the oxygen they burn which could leave you in trouble if your in a small sealed space (tent or van).
I used to be indecisive but now Im not so sure!!!

The Webasto is the untimate in safe heating of confined areas like inside a caravan or camper trailer, tent etc. However you need to first get your head around the $2,000 price tag. I suppose if you are camping in extreme cold it would be money worth spend as there is nothing like being cold & not being able to warm up.

How to install a Wesbasto can be seen on the Around Oz website.

There is additional info on the Webasto on Collyn Rivers website along with a warning on the dangers of Carbon Monoxide poisioning.

Sitro will soon release the Portable Ducted Camping Heater PCH500 page 21 of their cattledog which should be a big hit. At the moment it is being passed for Australian Gas Standards. The heater is placed outside while a gas heater heats a sealed box. The warm air inside the box is blown by a fan into the tent area via collapsible ducting. It all fits into a compact unit for storage. If I remember rrightly I think the price will be around the $200 mark.

Don't forget a couple of hot water bottles go a long way in your bed when caamping as well as dressing for the cold

impossible to do a 12volt electric heater ran off a car battery. You would need 20 odd car batteries, like whats in a forklift or scissor lift. Even then they would go flat pretty quick. Best bet would be a butane heater, you can pick them up pretty cheap, or light a fire.
