BW, got 2 cube heaters for $5 each about 6 years ago at a yard sale. Thought they might last a year or two if i was lucky. Never have used the second one yet, keeping it for a spare, i think i am getting  my monies worth out of them.  Smiley

BW makes a good point and i guess that that is what i am sort of saying too.  Depending on your comfort level, needs, and how you are going to use your bus, there are options out there. Just because the majority of people use one thing or another doesn't mean you have to. Someone just starting out reading our posts may think that they have to have this or that and not realize that that is not necessarily true. After all there are people out there that do not need or want patio awnings, slides, or stripper poles! Grin

For me, 25 yrs ago, I was happy with a generator, hot plate , ice box & sleeping bag and was happy,   Today I have about all the bells & whistles, still happy.  Only major change, I was young and bullet proof, today I am neither.

I use my Webasto for days and weeks at a time.  The fuel gauge does drop, but we are warm and cozy.  That's why I don't sleep in a tent anymore.

Scott looks like your set up nice and warm .Did you skirt the bottom then add snow!
Do you have a problem with condensation inside or do the cube heaters solve this
                          dave

I did not skirt the bottom but I do recommend it. I used the snow this time around to skirt it a little. I have a cube heater in each of my two plumbing bays set to its lowest setting. We had a condensation problem on the windshield glass as well as the screw heads in the ceiling. On a warmer day, we dried the screw heads and put several layers of silicone caulk on them. Problem solved. On the windshield, we applied heat shrink film with a small air gap in between. Once again, problem solved. We now have zero condensation on our windshield and can enjoy a crystal clear view.
