DING DING DING!! WINNER!
Assuming 120 volts, the amps would be 12.5. For AC heaters and hair dryers, divide the watts by 120. Easy. Your breakers will handle this and other heaters, until you start the coffee maker. Then... BLIP!
I like these little heaters: Patton PUH680-WM1 Utility Heater, Patton Milkhouse Utility Heater, Thermostat Controlled Heater, Electric Utility Heater
They are nearly indestructible, about $20 and in the spring you can get them for $16. They are a bit bulky, loudish and ugly.
But in the wintertime you can set them at a very low setting, say 40 deg F, and they keep your trailer from freezing up while stored in your yard, without runnning the power bill through the roof.
When camping, crank up the thermostat and stay comfy warm.
We got some funny looks when we plugged our heater in the pedestal outlet and let it run awhile. It was the first use of the cool season and we thought we'd let it make that dusty first use stink outside
