I think one needs to vent it properly. Those can get tricky if they vent into the RV. Is one going to keep a window open? How would that effect the heat/temp in the RV?

The Buddy Heater and the Big Buddy Heater both put out 4000 BTU on low. The problem with the Buddy Heater, is that it only uses 1 propane bottle, which will last about 5 hours on low, while the Big Buddy Heater uses 2 propane bottles and will last about 10 hours on low. I don't want to have to get up in the middle of the night, go outside, change propane bottles, come back in and relight the heater.....which I did using my daughter's borrowed Buddy Heater before we got the Big Buddy. It is nice to start the Big Buddy at bedtime, and that puppy still be glowing when I get up in the morning.

The Buddy Heaters can also be adapted to run from the quick connect propane hose in the trailer, or you can connect it to a larger 20 or 30 lb tank. The issue for me is that even on low (4000 BTU) the Buddys are a bit too much for a small trailer, given the lack of a thermostat control.
