    Evening.

    Looking to buy a small electric heater to take the chill out the van on a morning when on hook up.
    Can anyone reccomend anything?
    Was planning on something cheap from Argos or Tesco.

    I know the oils rads are best and safest but this is for my mams little Auto Sleeper she full times in. Storage is a big problem.
    Her van has no heating at mo and she is after something just to turn on and take the chill off her clothes and out of the air

    We use a fan heater, an oil filled radiator and a Halogen three bar heater all at different times of course, the Halogen heater is great to have on in the dark,listening to music with a nice drinkies,it gives a very comforatble ambiance to the van.All of these heaters need to be treated with respect and not left unattended and you need to be aware of their potential power consumption .:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    We have a halogen heater which we can position so that it poses no danger of heating anything sufficiently to cause a fire but only use it when we are awake. We have an oil filled radiator which we do leave on overnight in the coldest months.

    I definitely echo Vindiboy's last sentence:

    Thankyou all for taking the time to reply.
    Will go down the lines of a small ceramic heater i think until her heating is repaired.
