It's nice to hear your heater is working properly. I suspect that the prices will be going up very soon due to the new tariff's.

As usual, afterwards I thought of way better ways to express myself. But there are some good video shots of the van in there. Thanks for the kind words Jeremy. You could have done me a favor and edited me more though.

I thought you did just fine. Good work, Great van!

Thanks for the entertaining, well-written read. Your van turned out great and you clearly have crafted a well-designed, well thought-out camper.

Awesome van, Tim! One of my favorite builds on the site. Well thought out and great execution. Glad to see that you're getting out and enjoying it now. Please keep us in the loop on further improvements.

ps- You did fine in the video. After seeing tons of pics of van interiors, it's nice to see some with actual people in the van. It's cool that Jeremy featured your van even though you're not a customer (yet). It's a testament to his passion and yours.

I suspect you're correct. It hasn't happened yet though. I bought this heater last November. Looking the other day, the price has come down $40 since then for the same heater/controller. Plus they are now available from a USA reseller. When I bought mine I waited 6 weeks for a slow boat from China to arrive.

Everything used to install the heater came with it, except I replaced the fuel line and all clamps with product sourced from my local hardware store. Physically, these heaters look identical to the Eberspacher D2 heaters, with the exception of the controller, at a fraction of the cost. Since I probably use a heater 6 times a year, my install won't be the one to prove reliability.
