Electric heat

I have really progressed in my build with all mechanical systems in and most of the interior.
I will be spending a lot of time plugged in so I,m thinking of adding electric heat.
Namely a couple of Pik a watt fan forced heaters. 750-2000 watts, These have enclosed elements instead if hot wires and mount in the wall.

I had one of these in my last trailer that worked very well. But I had it close to the floor and was reminded that propane is heavier than air and if a leak developed with the heater on... BOOM!
Has any one mounted these things up high like in the front and rear end caps?
Any input?

The problem with that is cold air is heavier than warm so head would stay in the ceiling.
