I have had one of these before, but not the Wave 8. Sadly, this was way too big and heavy and wouldn't fit where I wanted it in our travel trailer, so sent it back and ordered the Wave 3, which is much smaller. I love the way these heat. They are nice and quiet, provide radiant heat, so there is no noise from a blower and it doesn't run down the batteries. Highly recommend. Just check the sizes and weight before you buy one.
