    What size of trailer are you heating? 35-45,000btu are pretty standard on most units.

    Vent free?

    Why not something with a heat exchanger so you donít suck fumes or an open burner?

    Looking for anything to hear a 24 foot enclosed and be able to sleep in it with the vent cracked open

    Try a Catadyne heater, easy to convert to propane and less $$ then forced air. Just change the orifice. Not a bad idea to install C02/ o2 detection if you are planning on sleeping in it.

    Suburban and atwood are for sale all over ebay. get one of those and a thermostat. itll be around $600 shipped. 30k btu is plenty adequate. and yes install a fire alarm and co2/co detector so you dont die. jus cracking a vent doesnt sound very smart. happy trailering.

    Sleeping in an enclosed trailer with a “catadyne” (vent free) type heater is never a good idea..!! Even with a vent cracked, the risk of asphyxiation is very high.
    Forced air or a radiant type heater that has the exhaust vented outside is all that should be used for a unit you will be sleeping in.

    Just send the extra and get a vented.
    Not worth waking up dead.

    I use 35,000 or 42,000 Btu furnaces with a solid Laser cut box. Exterior vented so they're safe for sleeping compartments.
