Use the coach furnace. It's propane and 12volts. Would be the same as camping self contained i.e. no hook-ups.

Using the coach furnace will work but just remember it will use a lot of propane. You could also use a small plugin heater and run on-board generator.

If your rig has a heat pump you can use that.
