I agree with Doug. I place mine by the fridge and point it forward, so it is sucking air from the bath and BR. At night I flip it around the other way. I only got mine late last fall and used it in 40s and 30s only, so I kept it on 10 speed for my 30'er. I can see how it would be necessary to turn it down in milder temps.

Your welcome! It was the lowest price I could find. eBay was the highest! Let us know how you like it.

Just now sat down after transfering possessions from one TT to the other, jockeying TT's around, move TT to storage 15m away, stop to eat & shop and then spent a half-hour fitting this longer TT into same rental space (with all-important shade trees). All day work. The expensive heater is running. The also-newly-purchased coffee maker made its' first pot and I'm back online until more work tomorrow (jack TT up on port side and slide more p-treat lumber under tires to level, etc.) Really didn't expect to do any of this for several weeks so am very pleased to be in new TT.

Have misplaced my thermo/hygro, but temps are rising quickly at lounge end of TT (bedroom at opposite end). Tried another space heater in bath plus HVAC heat strip, but that caused me to become familiar with my Square D box (great, more circuits than old TT, and more space in the "electrical room": port side, TT bow. I like this). Chill is gone, and sound level is completely unobjectionable at three, unremarkable at ten in comparison to HVAC heat strip. I can stay up late (past nine) so plenty of time to see how TT warms up.

2000-miles of driving over the holidays to get a TT home that was only 430-miles distant. I'm beat. And taking tomorrow off from work. Pleased to be here, and extra-pleased that AIR (in main, and in particular) really came through for me today.

Slick device, this DYSON hot + cool

Got a Dyson Hot/Cool Yesterday

Thanks to the reviews here... AND 16 degree overnight temps (SE Virginia for crying out loud!)... I went out and bought one at Bed Bath & Beyond last night. They are on a special promotion $299 instead of $399 AND if you go to the BB&B website they'll give you a one item 20% off coupon. The coupon is not good for Dyson floorcare products, but they did accept it for the heater. $240 plus tax. I suppose I should say "woo-hoo" but it's still pricy.

I wasn't totally impressed with it last night - but it was 16F and I do have the SE Safari with the interior aluminum walls which is harder to heat.

I set the furnace at 65, but had to turn the Dyson up to 75 to keep the trailer warm.

My heated water hose failed last night so I had a birdbath this morning. Off to the hardware store for a new hose, insulated wrap and a heat tape. Poop!

There's not enough wattage in the Dyson Hot to heat an Airstream at those temps. We had 17 here a week or so back and I set the Dyson at 99 at night so it would run continuous, and the furnace at 65 for sleeping. They were supplementing each other.

Agree - and I expect it will work fine in the 30's. I used to use two space heaters and during summer I have 3 fans. This will take up less space as most of these go out the door.

Just received mine. VERY impressed. Size will be ideal for the early Spring, mid to late fall trips. Great design features....a bit pricey, but I've had great luck with the vacuums and the old adage "you get what you pay for" will doubtless apply to the heater as well.

Look what happens when I stop by for a quick check of the forum...
I begin by reading a thread about Dyson heaters (not interested personally, for our use the propane furnace is perfect!) and become interested in the uber expensive Dyson Animal portable vacuum. Thanks to the ease of Amazon "instant gratification" ours will be here Friday....
Sigh.....

But Bruce, the Dyson heats the house as well. Or is it warm there tonight?

Our temps got no lower than mid-30's. The DYSON was able to keep this big trailer comfortable, (given all sorts of conditions to be considered). IOW, it has been a good choice in an overall sense.

Dyson Update

This thing works so much better than any other space heater I've ever had! It puts out warm air that you can feel 8 feet away, not air that will burn anything within 2 feet followed by a cool breeze at four feet, followed by nothing much after that. It heats to the set temperature and then slows down and shuts off. The fan part really circulates to the whole trailer!

Ambient noise? FAR less than the 15,000 BTU heat pump or air conditioner. Not noticeably more than any other fan/heater combo. Not NOTHING, but it's minor and not irritating to me... or maybe it is time for a hearing aid?

ERROR SETTING - I got errors two nights in a row, then realized I needed to adjust my leveler jacks and tighten them a bit (it's muddy ground). The tilt-over warning turned the heater off because it's been windy and apparently the sensor is really sensitive - which is a good thing.

I've set my furnace at 65 and the Dyson at 69 - on very cold nights (25 and lower) I occasionally notice the furnace kicking in, but I'm not burning through a 30 gallon tank in a week so it's all good.

What really pleases me is how fast the trailer heats up again. It was mild and I'd just bought groceries, so I turned on both of the fantastic fans while I was bringing in the bags - just to completely air out the trailer - and within a few moments the inside temp matched the outside. So once I closed the door and turned off the fans, I started to wash the veggies and put away the groceries. Didn't finish before the trailer was warm again - 10 minutes or less to heat the trailer back up.
