we have a Micro Lite 25KS and use two(most times only one) small ones(link below) from BBB(Bed Bath Beyond),....... got them much cheaper in off season and using their coupons, ..... they are all we have ever needed, no propane heat,......

having two, one is dedicated almost entirely to the bathroom, ...... because one of us likes having a warm/hot room when stepping out of the shower, ..... and when that one is happy, the trailer is happy,......

We use this one and it keeps the main area of the TT very toasty. We like that it has a oscillating feature.

We purchased a Lasko model 755320 ceramic heater off Amazon.Works great when the cold weather gets close to the low 30s.

I like an oil filled unit with fins. Seems safer.

I prefer a heater with a fan, so I can direct the heat into the bathroom and shower enclosure on cold mornings.

I purchased a DeLongi ceramic heater, model # DCH5090EL. It has digital display, oscillates, and even has a frost setting where it maintains 45*. It does very well at holding temp and the digital display gives my wife something to gauge the temp by instead of just where the pointer on the dial is.
The only thing that I do not like is that there is not a tip-over sensor. I have dogs so placement is a bit more critical.

We have 2 Pelonis Ceramic heaters, (ACE Hardware specials), they do a good job but after using them a lot, I wish we would have got ones that have the the digital thermostat. These analog ones have a very wide on off temperature range.

I think any of them, as long as they have, hi/low settings and auto shutoff for tip and overheat, will be good but I would recommend one with the digital thermostat.

I bought a few inexpensive heaters to supplement heat but kept popping breakers while they were both running. ended up having to run a cord to the 110 plug at the power box for the second heater.

Im a believer in its not my power when at a campground. (not wasteful just not going to be cheep)

We have a Lasko 6435 heater. Actually we have 3. One for the camper and 2 for our cabin. They work extremely well. They come with a full function remote, too. But the best part is... They are very stylish. I leave them out even in the summer in the cabin and they just look like a vase or urn.




Just remember. A 1500 watt heater is pretty much 15 amps. Running two on a 30 amp breaker will not work if anything else is on.
