Adding a Furnace to Wolf pup 17RP

All,

I recently purchased a 2013 17RP without a furnace. I know I know, I should have got the furnace, but I don't plan on camping much during the winter and it doesn't get too terribly cold here in the south.

I would like to have the option eventually to camp year round. Is there any way possible to add a furnace or will this be extremely costly and I will be better off suited with a nice generator and a space heater?

Just seeing what my options are. When connected to shore power, a small space heater provides more than enough heat but I would like to be able to boon dock with some warmth!

Any suggestions are welcome!

I use a small buddy heater with 12ft extension hose that goes right to one of the propane tanks. That's my back up heater. I never use hi setting- only low.

Do you have any issues with fumes at all?

I have a 2012 21RR. I have a furnace that came with it but prefer to use one of these,

Pelonis 1500W Ceramic Disc Heater (HF-N) - Heaters - Ace Hardware

We had a couple nights in late October this year that went down to about 20deg and it managed to keep the camper at 65+deg.

Obviously, I'd rather use the CG electric than my propane.

I use an electric / oil heater. It works nicely and it's silent , unlike the ceramic fan heater. I like it quiet in my camper at night.

We don't buy then again, we are a pop up. Most of the people here would agree to cracking a window or top vent.
