A campervan’s heating considerations



Several factors need to be taken into consideration when installing heating in a modified or converted campervan:

  • What type of vehicle is it? Isn’t it a converted model?
  • Does the product fulfill its intended purpose?
  • Is it possible to live in this vehicle?
  • What is the construction of the vehicle? How are the materials used?

Campervans and vehicles come standard with underfloor heating, heated towel rails, and combi heaters. A van can probably be heated in many different ways, just as you can imagine a way to heat a house. If your campervan has heated towel rails or underfloor heating, verify that your leisure battery can handle the power drain.

How do you heat motorhomes?

The best thing you can do for your motorhome or campervan is to install a permanent motorhome heating system. A Truma unit can run both on electricity and gas at the same time. Having access to campsite electricity while wild camping will enable you to burn refillable LPG tanks and stay off-grid. You will still have some flexibility with dual heating, no matter what type of van you have.

A motorhome can be heated in two ways:

  • Gasoline, electricity, and diesel blowers are the three types of blowers.
  • Mobile and free-standing electric and gas heaters.
