I've been sleeping in my bus for the past couple of weeks and use two electric space heaters on the low setting (one in the living room and one in the bunk room) plus a vaporizer. When it gets down to 30-35 degrees my bus is about 60 degrees inside. We have down sleeping bags as blankets and it is very comfortable for sleeping though a bit chilly when getting up in the morning.
Hey Dan, yes,I'm staying warm using a Mr. Heater Portable Buddy heater in the front by the door & then another in my bedroom. I have an extra propane hose in the living room so that I can move my second heater up front on really cold nights & mornings. I also use an electric blanket when I'm going to sleep.

My hot water setup only cost me $150 & I only turn it on when I plan to take a shower. I didn't see any hot water heaters that were anywhere near $150.
