Heater/Furnace Recommendations?

Will be taking our first potentially cold weather trip in January and have been looking at the electric heaters to avoid using too much propane. They seem to range in price from $30 - $200+. Does anyone have recommendations for use in a PUP? Ideally, one that puts out a significant amount of heat, has good adjustments, and safety (cool to touch, tip over shut off).

I have used a Vornado but not in extremely cold weather. It was just around freezing temps. Not sure how it would do at lower temps. In the morning it was alittle chilly in the camper, but it was not a chore to get out of bed.

I like those oil filled radiators. We had one in our 32' TT and it did a great job of keeping the place cozy. It does take up floor space so it might be tight in a pup.

I would just go to walmart they have some tower heaters, make sure you get one with both and high btu's such as 1500 watt high and 1000 btu's low. high, low and med. fan center, they are all about the same. also with stat and knock over protection.
