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.

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

http://planarheaters.com/air-heater-8dm-12

This about the distributor

http://planarheaters.com/t/aboutus

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?
