Re: Diesel air heater - like webasto....
I know several people who use heaters like this in their vans. Webasto 7000 and 18000 btu. They say the heater is no louder than a propane furnace. I have not seen this brand before, but at 21000 btu that is good.

Re: Diesel air heater - like webasto....
I had a webasto in a pickup when I was driving cross country in it. It worked good, actually too big for the small space.
I don't know anything about Planar,
Found this about the heater

This about the distributor

And this is the website of the company in Russia that builds them.

These heaters do take some maintenance. I wonder if getting parts from Russia and or Canada might be a problem?
