Webasto needed

Anyone have any links or shops where I might be able to get a used webasto for my bus? I found some new for about a grand but wanted to know if there were some used ones that were certified or warranted for a lower price?

Any help is appreciated.

Air or coolant? I sold a coolant for $1800 and an air for $1200. Both were Espar. $1000 sounds cheap.

Re: Webasto needed

Espar?? Not familiar with that brand. I just want a heater for my bus. Decided to get one after thinking about the places I will be staying in it.

Is there a specific model to look for? Do they work/install the same?

Thanks in advance,

-Doc

Re: Webasto needed

If you can get a Webasto [assuming its a DBW2010 or such]for $1000 you are getting a steal!! They are very expensive to fix as well. You could just spend $7000 and buy a new one too.

That sounds too cheap for a Webasto. Which model?

This is the one I saw. But to be honest I dont think I would need a huge one, only to keep a chill out of the air. Do you think a 2000 is too small? Should I try the 4000?

Re: Webasto needed

Those arent the Webastos we were thinking. I dont believe those will even take the chill out of the air, those are for a sleeper bunk. Thats only 7,000BTU.

The unit I have is 45,000BTU and it will keep the bus toasty. Look up model DBW2010.

Re: Webasto needed

Maybe you could use it for a bedroom.
