I know very little about them, though there's a thread on here about Chinese diesel heaters. They're popular in the vanbuilding community and there are lots of youtube videos and a facebook page specifically about them. They can either be plumbed into the main diesel tank, or they can use a separate tank that usually comes with them (I think it's a 5 liter tank). Since the exhaust and air intake are all piped outside the bus, there shouldn't be carbon monoxide issues. You should have a detector installed anyway.
I'd just use my bus heater to travel, but I don't see why you couldn't travel with it running.
Aside from the size (5K or 8K) they seem to come in 2 flavors...the difference being one has a case so it's kind of a standalone unit. They're readily available on Amazon and Ebay. I know nothing about these specific brands, but this is the gist of it:
same thing, no case
