Great Heater

Customer review by CampLover

5.0 stars by CampLover

Purchased this heater for an October tent camping trip where temperatures were expected to drop into the upper 30's. I was very skeptical about using a propane heater in the tent due to carbon monoxide poisoning. When a retired fire department captain told me he uses the heater inside his tent, I took his word and felt safe using the heater inside our tent. After all, I figured he would be the one to know! Well, temperatures dropped to 34 degrees and with the heater on low, the tent was a nice and comfortable 51 degrees. We were a little short of propane so we just ran it on low, which required me to change the tank at 4:00 AM! After changing the tank, I cranked the heater up to high and the tent warmed to about 60 degrees! The heater is very quiet and there is no odor what so ever. In addition, the glow from the heater provides a nice little nightlight! I would strongly recommend purchasing a hose adapter and getting a 20-pound propane tank to place outside the tent because waking up to a cold heater at 4:00 AM to replace the one-pound tank is no fun!

I bought my Buddy Heater to heat my 28' travel trailer which had no furnace. Buddy would keep the trailer 65*-70* during the day when the outside temps were in the low 30's and would manage around 60* at night when the temps dipped to the upper teens. Last fall we bought another trailer, this one being a 31' with a forced air propane furnace. we noticed right away that the furnace used way more propane than the Buddy used to heat the old trailer. This time i bought the Big Buddy heater and it is the ticket. The Big Buddy has a built in 6 vdc fan which moves the heat through the trailer and gets it nice and toasty in no time. Both Buddies are safe to use indoors as long as you crack open a window. Both have tip over protection and low oxygen shut off switches. Due to the low oxygen switch neither will operate at much over 7,000 feet altitude. My recommendations would be a Buddy Heater for a tent, truck camper or small travel trailer up to maybe 20', but the Big Buddy is the way to go if heating a larger area or trailer. Both of my Buddies run off 10 gallon tanks. I would recommend getting the inline filter if you are using an external tank. My Buddy got plugged up with some kind of oiley residue and it was a bugger to get it cleared out. Knowing what i know now i think i would have skipped the Buddy and just went with the Big Buddy. It's easily twice the heater for about $20 more. Buddy has 2 heat settings, 4k BTU's and 9k BTU's, Big Buddy has 3 heat settings, 4k, 9k, and 18k BTU's plus the fan. Buddy heater is a great little heater, Big Buddy is a better larger heater, either way you can't go wrong.

This little heater is amazing. It works so well I am buying two more. The 20lb tank lasts for days of warmth. So even if the electricty is out we have heat.
