    Welcome to the forum Kev.
    We've got Webasto now. When we get to the heating stage on our pvc , Ralph will put Webasto in again. It's brilliant. You just need good batteries. We have trojan.
    I'm sure someone else will come on and give you more info too.

    Hi and welcome -(y) all depends on how much you want to spend /new or second hand -In the past I have had Ebspacher diesel (not correct spelling;))Propex and currently on TRUMA -both gas The truma has given good service for 8 yrs (y)and although I liked the propex I don't think it's as good as the Truma -Just been away for 3 night with heating on 24/7 and it's cost about £6 in gas = to 3.5 ish ltrs -Both Truma and propex are around £500 ish to buy new -the ebspacher are closer to £900
    I have and will be fitting a Esbpacher AIRTronic(£2400 plus) hot water/blown air heating one in my next (for my self) conversion (y)Picked it up SH for a lot less :DNo idea how much the Ebspacher cost to run because it drank from the tank ;)

    Hi Paul,I never ran out of power for it, so never gave that a thought -The Truma has just done 2 days on the one L/B and another after a 200 mls run so I have no doubt it had another full charge to go at (y)Are you saying the Eberspacher is power hungry ? again I never had a problem but I don't remember or cared about it gobbling batteries back then --I may well stick 2 l/bs in the next van -god I may even use/fit a solar panel :D

    Thanks -(y) food for thought and better to find out now so plans can be made -Will have to ask Andy63 on how power hungry the AIRTRONIC one is (NOT HYDRONIC)-he is the only person I know with one :D
