Portable electric radiant heater for shorty?
 
has anyone ever tried to use one of these to heat a shorty:

I would think the shorty would have to be well insulated but it says it can heat up to 200sqft. Made to run for long periods of time. Could mount or not. maybe one if front one in back?

We tried a similar oil filled heater to heat a 200 sq ft work room and found it to be very slow to heat up and then very slow to cool down. We donated it to a thrift store. As far as heating our tiny skoolie, when we have electricity available we use a small cube heater equipped with a fan. Our bus is well insulated and the little heater set on low (750 watts) is enough heat down to about 30 degrees. If it gets colder than that I kick on the 12,000 btu propane heater. Jack:popcorn:
