Nice Trailer.... I'm looking to pick something similar up in the the next year or so (money!) I do have a twenty foot 8-6 wide cargo trailer that I use for construction. Some freinds of mine in the same line of work use these propane fired 99% efficient heaters that look like wel a giant sunflower of sorts. they produce a fair amount of btu's and have extremely little exhaust fumes and CO
and with the propane it keeps things clean fuelwise. Don't know much about costs yet myself but hope this gives you some ideas. Cheers!

Father inlaw just picked up a similar sized trailer that was already set up with flip up bunks, overhead cabinets, lighting and heat. The heater is a wall mount indoor propane heater. It has a vent attached to the outside wall. Trailer has 2 thirty pound bottles tucked underneath. The heater is on the wall where your forward door is currently located (his "person" door is on the passenger side, middle). The heater has a board below it to stop a sled ski from ramming into it. A thermostat is on the wall about half way back. Trailer is also fullly insulated. Easily kept us at 65 the other night when the temps hit 10 outside.

Thanks for the info. I guess I'm leaning toward propane

I have no experience with this set-up, but I have read about guys just putting in a motorhome or travel trailer propane heater. Marc

One issue with a propane travel trailer heater is they are hard on a battery. The circulation fans draws quite a bit of current at 12v. See if you can buy one that exhausts outside but does not have a circulating fan.

I am not crazy about the ventless part to be honest.

I will second that, In an Ideal situation all you should get is really water vapor I believe. However, I would go for the vented version myself.

I hear alot of people useing them in the house and I do have vents
on top of the trailer with two fuel doors to let in some fresh air if needed.
The only problem with that is mounting a tank outside somewhere. There isn't alot of room on the nose. I was looking at ideas today.
