Oh, some of the reasons we went with this one is the outside of the box is cool to the touch. The radiator ones get too hot and we have a puppy that resides with us. So for those who have dogs, this is one of the safer ones to get. As for cats, well you have to train them not to sleep on top of it no matter where you place it.

Have you looked into the Infrared heaters? I have a couple that I use at home. I have a smaller 1000 watt that would work perfect in a trailer.

Unlike the old tradition heaters that are fire hazards the infrared heater is not hot to the touch and works similar to your homes furnace.

Here is one similar to what I have.
ProFusion Heat Infrared Quartz Heater ó 5118 BTU, Model# GD9210BD1-15S | Electric Infrared Heaters| Northern Tool + Equipment
