    What are you guys using for your enclosed trailers? Im looking for a catadyne style such as they use in the oilfield that is explosion proof.

    Dunno know for sure but I think the most reasonable one might just be an RV style heater! Thats what we are planning to put in ours. They're small, easy to install and easy to add options to ie boot dryers etc.

    Check out Catfish Supply on the Net. They have an 18K btu propane w/fan. Low oxygen shut off and it is vent free. Had one in our old trailer, worked great and just finished the install on the new one this weekend.

    I have used a "little buddy" lpg heater from princess auto for 3 years...... Will use it in my new to me, used trailer for this year, then probably getting into a built in heater....... The little buddy did an okay job.... Never got hot inside, but sure took the chill off.....

    i'd go with the catadyne heater you could probaly even get one for a verry good price some wear out in the field. I was thinking about doing the same thing with an enclosed trailer one day.

    Re: Trailer propane heaters

    I installed a 34000 btu suburban rv style furnance. Works great and safe. Got it out of the usa for around $600 brand new. The bracket was made by a guy in red deer alberta but grassland trailer sales it were i got mine. I also did a ac/dc Panel so I can run the heater off of my truck or plug it into my house at home. if anyone has any questions i'll do my best to help!

    Question Re: Trailer propane heaters

    Just an FYI you may want to check with your insurance company. I was told that I had to have it "professionally installed" and inspected. A person would hate to have no insurance coverage if something happened. Just my 2 cents

    Re: Trailer propane heaters

    does anyone know how long the certification is good for on the automotive propane tanks like the one shown in the picture from the previous post?

    looking for a used propane tank for the trailer....looks like you can pick one up for cheap on kijiji, but if it's only good for another year or so then it's pointless no matter the price...

    or how much are they new? where can you get one?

    10 RZR-S (doesn't need any performance parts )
    03 Harley V-Rod (a few performance parts)
    14 Dodge 3500 Diesel 4x4 Limited (planning a few performance parts)
    74 Brunette (a few performance parts)
