Mr Heater alternative.

I was looking at buying one from Amazon but noticed many bad reviews. Even on other sites have bad reviews. Any others out there?

Our grandparents gave us one last year for our house, and we've used it in the bus (until we put the wood stove in, then it will be back up) and never had a single problem with it. It'll roast you out of the bus within 30 minutes on high. It's the most reliable heater either of us have ever used. We do have the extension to hook to a 20lb tank which lasts a long time, the little cans are good in an emergency.

Edit: ours is also the bigger one with two plates on the front and can hold two little tanks.

I have the larger one that takes two of the small tanks. It's great, normally only need in on low. I highly recommend it.

Re: Mr Heater alternative.

When electric is not available and it's to warm for the wood stove we too use the Mr Buddy.... The smaller one on a 20 pound tank. Besides the condensation creation we can not complain. Keep fresh batteries in the lp/co2 detector and let her rip. They put out tons of heat for our size conversions. Can't complain.
Oh and be sure to run an inline filter.
