Fireplace Installation?

Do you like your electric fireplace, if your camper came with one? If you didn't get one with it have you or would you go to the expense.
If you have done it what brand and model please of electric did you get and how deep was it from the mounting surface back? Looks like I've got is a 28" x 22" x 5" deep and probably not more than 7" in front of the mounting plane before a interferrence with the slideout will happen

We love ours!
I'd definitely put one in a camper without one.
On those cooler nights it heats to a perfect level without using the furnace so much.

I was one of those guys who thought the electric fireplace was just a gimmick. Until we bought our Cedar Creek unit. Now we would not be without an electric fireplace in a camper. We have used the fireplace on many a cool mornings to warm up the living area of the camper without turning on the furnace. This will heat the living area to a comfortable temperature in just a few minutes.

If you can added one it is will worth the effort and cost to add the fireplace to your camper. This will save you money on propane usage in the long run. When you just use the fireplace to heat up the living area on cool mornings and evenings, without turning on the furnace.

good heat

I have been in some of the trailers with the fire places they do put out good heat. Would like to have one myself post some pictures if you put one in.

A fireplace even makes watching a war movie seem romantic! Highly recommend one.
