Coleman Sportcat propane heater

Looking for one or two Coleman Sportcat 1500 BTU propane heaters for my Rockwood A-Frame. (This heater fits on the top of a small propane bottle).
Please PM if you have one or more that you would sell.
Thank you.

They seem to be rare as hen's teeth.

You might want to go with the Mr. Heater Little Buddy. I've got one and works well. It has an oxygen sensor and will shut off on low oxygen; a safety feature which the Coleman doesn't seem to have.

Only problem with these is they are a bit unstable; easy to kick over. This one has a higher output and is more stable; also has the oxygen sensor:

Thanks rockfordroo
I have the Little Buddy heater, and although it is a great heater, on the lowest setting it bakes us out of the A-frame in just a few minutes. The A-frame is so small and well insulated that it requires very little heat. I am looking for a small propane BTU output just to use on cool evenings and mornings when we don't have hookups. I would never use it while sleeping. The Little Buddy is 3500 BTU on the lowest setting.
It looks like Coleman has quit making heaters and I can't find any other manufacturer that makes a 1500 BTU or smaller propane heater.

Hi Jeeps
I had seen that Coleman website. There is no way to put the item in the cart. The site is just there to get a manual for the s
Sportcat heater. If you go to the main Coleman website, they no longer list heaters of any type.
Thanks,

Guess Craigslist and hopefully find someone that would ship it! Good luck I found a new one on CL here in AR interestingly enough!

SportCat

I found one in my garage. Bought it in garage sale years ago. Just tried it and it works. Make an offer and pay for shipping and it's yours.
