Another heater option.

I found this when looking for a boat heater. I can definitely see one of these mounted in a wood-panneled van, vented through the roof. I don't think it could be made to work with a pop-top though unfortunately.

Re: Another heater option.

From the web site:

"Made of robust, high quality constructions and versatile performance. "

"The heaters is externally vented and bulkhead mounted."

I hope these guys are making money with their heaters. They'll sure as hell never make a penny writing English prose.

Re: Another heater option.

It actually looks kind of cool, although that last line about a "minimum flue height of 1.1 meters" makes me visualize a strange-looking chimney coming up the side of my van.

some photos here. interesting site, actually:

Can someone explain in Americanish what the heck a "self pricking" heater is?

Tempted as I am to wander into the nether regions, I'll play this straight: stoves like this have a little jet in the burner through which the pressurized fuel travels to be ignited. Self-pricking stoves have a little automatic cleaning wire that ensures the orifice does not clog with soot, grit etc. It's usually activated and withdrawn as you open the valve.

Re: Another heater option.

Similar to the Svea stoves. My old 123 stove doesn't have the self cleaning tip but the newer ones did. The heater seems more like it's built for a boat cabin. I also can't get past the exhaust but it sure is cool looking. I like it. As well as the stoves work, I'll bet those things work great.
