    I think in general most coachbuilt styles suffer with insulation issues. In essence the cabs on all of them are still commercial with a bit of nicer seat cloth and carpets. It is the Achilles heel, I did the same with a curtain between hab and cab, then used two blankets (travel rugs) the air between the two blankets warms the place and seems to give insulation.

    Roll on summer

    Thanks guys & delicagirl !

    The propane heater should be the same (fire/gas) as yours.

    I also have a diesel fired heater (little espar one) I may install if the one in the camper isn't that good.

    I've had a number of campers over the years and winter camp (ski) often, so I'll be insulating this one too.

    Will post pictures as I do the mods !

    yes i gallivanted through Eire this year and then over to France for a couple of months..... whenever i have a few hours i will put up a post about France (my first time there in 30 years) as i had a few interesting challenges to say the least !!! The van now needs a new kitchen window as I reversed into a tree in a campsite one day - so a trip over to South Wales camper scappy is on the cards very soon.

    i got my gas fire checked out by GASSAFE guy who specialises in LPG gas appliances when i first go it. this may i had my gas system tested and it was running at 98% efficiency so i was really chuffed.

    I find the fire heats the van in next to no time - but i do have very thick double lined curtains. The habitation entry-foot well is the coldest area - and i plan to velcro a new curtain to cover the door frame in the winter.

    i also got someone to glue thin carpet to the wall in the dining area (and the downstairs bed area) and this has warmed it up considerably.

    Thanks ! I'll keep those tips in mind when I'm winterizing mine. Is the gas fire loud or quiet ? Does it run constantly or how often does it cycle on and off ? Cheers
