One of these, at Walmart, under $20.

Patton Electric Utility Milkhouse Heater, PUH680-WM1 - Walmart.com

They are inexpensive, indestructible and cheap. Fan is a bit noisy. They have an amazing ability to keep the unoccupied/stored trailer about 40 deg F. when it's below freezing. Some heaters will not "idle" that low. We have stretches of weather here in Georgia where the camping is cool but nice and then a sub-freezing cold snap comes along and you have to winterize and de-winterize to camp a few days latter. Or just plug in the milk house heater for a night or two.

For camping just turn up the thermostat and you're toasty. If not used in awhile plug it in outside for a few minutes to get rid of the smoky/dusty smell.

We don't have little ones. If we did we would use the more expensive, larger and heaver oil filled heater to prevent burns. They also run silently.

In either case we sometimes run a heavy extension cord out the slide seal to the pedestal so we don't trip breakers trying to heat and make coffee at the same time.

I use a Holmes ceramic (small little box) and works great. I too run a seperate extension cord to the pedestal to keep from heating up the wall plug in the TT.

Being from Buffalo, we don't use our heater until it drops below 40.

This one fits next to the front door on the wall. The coats hang above it and their always warm when you put your arm in them.

I got my heater out yesterday. It's a life smart infrared quartz. It heats up to 800 sq feet

We have a 1500W Lasko we will be using. It is 1500 watts on high and either 750 or 900 watts on low (I've seen both number listed and manual doesn't) say. It was purchased along with another portable heater as a backup for when we lose power in the winter and need to run from a generator. Found it heats our kitchen and eating area well with outside temps in the high 20's and rest of house in the 40 degree range.

Holmes twin ceramic works well for us.
