    Nice Unit . Propane heat will make it comfortable for a weekend but longer stays it will start to get wet on the inside of the walls and roof thats what I found with mine and mine is insulated . I found a diesel heater from a Boat used on Craigs list i believe its a Nemar (Spelling ?) wall mounted works great and dry heat as for the Rest its cots and coolers for the summer then its mobile storage for the winter

    Looked at something very similar and didn't like the fact that I could be locked inside it. Some form of escape or a different man door closure would suffice. Once I figure that out I will buy one too.

    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    It has an emergency escape window on the drivers side. Lift two red handles and the window unit will swing out. I was worried about the same so this is the route I went. A guy could even install a cargo hatch that's operated from the inside only.

    That too. I'd lock the bar so it could not be dropped into the secure mode. I did't like the rain either, the rain inside of course.

    Insulate the interior with the foil backed bubble wrap insulation and you don't have the problem, at least that's how it works in a cube van.
    Toss the trailer tires and run some real truck tires. Trailer tires are disposable crap in most cases. Or they cost as much as a truck tire.
    Interested to see how you kit it out!
    The only thing I like as much as trucks, is guns.

    I have found L track the best and most versatile for tying things down. It is used on aircraft seat mountings.
    I believe Cap-it has it also Google it to check it out.

    The propane heat will be wet because itís not vented. You could put in a cozy cabin propane heater really easy to install and doesnít need any power. Best prices for the cozy cabin heater is on tiny house.com I just bought 2 of them.

    If propane is vented outside there is no moisture to build up. If you are getting moisture it is likely from the cook stove

    That Martin direct vent propane does look like a nice low profile unit. Maybe something for the future but 20,000BTU seems like overkill for suck a small space.
    no kidding......but the 8000 unit would be more appropriate )

    How hard would it be to hook up a small vented wood stove?

    Not hard at all but it just takes up floor space and then the act of collecting wood. I'm not sure I like the thought of potentially driving with embers that might flare up. Propane or diesel is practical. The unit has vents and windows so there is a ability for air flow. I'm going to try the little buddy propane first - heck, I might not even need heat for the times I'm using this. Well, probably a little heat when it's damp.
