Rated 5 out of 5★ by Iove it I got this little over a month ago love it I got it to help out heating my mobile home. I got the 12' hose and filter put a 100 pound gas bottle out side and ran it to the heater. My central heat never comes on any more 12/28/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Very good little heater We used this for a chilly weekend in a pop-up camper. I used the 5 foot extension house and hooked it to a 20lb propane tank. The first night we ran it on low the whole night and it kept the camper nice and warm. It was warm enough that I was sweating in my sleeping bag. The second night it was in the upper 30's and we ran the heater on high all night and it worked great and kept us very warm. If it got any colder I'm not sure it would have been able to keep the cold out as well unless the space was smaller. Very nice product, lights east and shuts off, even if it's just accidentally kicked. 10/26/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by excellent heater I use this heater in my 22 ft camper. Temperatures get down to 40 at night. This heater warms it to 70 if left on, but I just use it to get to 66 and turn it off. The high setting is comparable to an electric quartz heater on high. It is light and small, and it puts out a lot of heat. 11/27/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Works as advertised! Highly recommended for cold I bought this for our two night camping trip prior to a tough mudder. First night it was rainy and 48 degrees followed by a 2nd dry night at 34 degrees.Bottom line is that this little thing saved the day. This was a 6 person tent (127 sq' ft) occupied by 2 people. We ran it on low the first night when it was in the mid-40's and it was good.The 2nd night at 34 degrees on low it kept the tent bearable with a good sleeping bag but you could see your breath. When I boosted it to Hi it quickly heated the tent.The good:- Relatively compact if you have a large tent not crammed with goods and kids- Even on high it did not put out dangerous heat directly to the front that would melt the floor or anything nearby although they recommend 24" clearance- Quiet- 1lb tanks are a dime a dozen and easy to plug and play in the middle of the night (I really like the fact that the regulator for the 1lb tanks swings out for easy replacement.- Optional hose/filter for 20lb tanks- Safe (we had it burning for 30+ straight hours in our tent)Price- IMO I thought it was a great bang for the buck given how cold weather can make or break your trip if your significant other is cold and uncomfortable.Minor Annoyances (very few)- On high it will indeed burn through a 1lb tank in 3 hrs. Low will get you the rated 6 hrs- Wish there was an adjustable heat setting rather than low or high. I found myself wanting a medium setting several times.- If you have an especially airy tent or if it is breezy outside it will impact the effectiveness. This is a radiant heater, not directional (my wife wished it had a small deflector on top to deflect hot air more horizontal). I noticed when the cold front passed and it got windy outside that it struggled a bit more to keep the tent warmer and required the high settingOverall however I am really pleased that I finally landed a portable heater that I feel safe sleeping with in the tent. Since my wife doesn't often go camping in sub 40 degree weather this thing will serve us well for those late Fall trips when it is in the low 40's to 50's and you want to sit on top of your sleeping bag and read without huddling inside of it. 10/20/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by A handy heater for indoors (safe too) It provides just enough heat for a small room or a camping "Pop Up". My only concern is the ignition dial which I hope last, for it seems to be the weakest part of the unit. No electricity needed which is a plus. 10/12/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great heater for a deer stand This is a great, light weight heater. It not only heats my basement room where I like to work on hobbies but also works well in the deer stand that is 57in x 57 in. If you're going to use it for an extended period, use a 25 lb propane tank though as it does burn through the 1 lb cylinders pretty quickly. 11/18/2012
