    Many years ago I fitted one in my caravan.

    It worked fine and gave out plenty of heat
    However they do give out moisture as the gas burns, so maybe not a good idea nowadays when you can get heaters that exhaust to the exterior.

    As previous poster, had one in a caravan.. great heat and don't give off CO2 .

    One benefit, if your off ehu it's not using any power off the leisure battery..

    Before buying motorhome we had several yachts. Installed a catalytic heater in the last two and they were brilliant. Only problem was the doom & gloomsters warning of the gases given off. Have a look on the yachtie sites, there are two models, a midi and a mini, amongst others. Can definitely reccommend them. Used to cost about £120ish. Just make sure you keep the van well ventilated. You will find that the heat given off for the small amount of gas used is amazing.
