webasto Airtop 2000

I am trying to buy the gasoline version of the webasto heater and I am finding it difficult finding a dealer to sell me one. I have found dealers willing to sell me the diesel version but no one wants to order the gasoline version. I will be installing it myself. I live in Oregon but will pay the shipping. where are people buying these?

Thanks.

steve

One solution is to let the van interior get cold at night and then stay warm with a 12 volt heating pad under your sleeping bag. The refrigerator runs less in a cold van so the power saved is used by the heating pad.

For a stealth conversion, the lack of noise is important and makes sleeping easier because it is quiet.

I will experiment with a insulated tent surrounding the sleeping platform. Hope to retain some of the body heat and heat from the heating pad inside the tent. Expect tent idea to work. We will see.

I think there is a gas version of the Espar unit. Might be easier to find.

I've had success with Propex. Doesn't answer the problem of a gas heater, but it's relatively quiet, and warms the van well.

Lots of helpful responses.

eBay is probably your easiest source for the Webasto: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw...oline&_sacat=0

If you're willing to go Espar, others have gotten a price quote of $1295 for a gasoline D2 Espar from Greg at info@LubricationSpecialist.com.

You can get one from the UK for around $840. http://www.melloronline.co.uk/Vehicl...t_41SK464.html

Here's a recent installation that is nearly identical to my installation method:

I used interstate power systems of billings in Billings, MT. They installed the heater, plumped to the fuel tank for well under $1000. I worked with Jesse Bradley #800-823-4334

Great find JD. I like. You speak of an 'installation method,' so am I to understand this as you have not installed yet? But if you have installed, a winters worth of experience you do not have yet, correct? I'm leaning towards the Dickinson P-9000 propane furnace, but this mean propane vs petrol, and I like the fact that heat availability/demand is completely transparent to the user. You got a running van; you got heat. Please update my on where you are with this and if you have any Dickinson experience from others you may know of being in WA. Thanks.
