would be nice to bolt it onto a catalytic - depending on how much draw it had.

$400.00? That buys a lot of propane...

Well, to be honest, for $399 I would expect Mr Dyson to hand deliver the heater and wax my Airstream while he was at it...

My $39 quartz cube heater makes me nice and toasty.

It is expensive that is the main criteria for being Airstream worthy.

Our $29 Ceramic heater makes us nice and toasty too and it's quiet.

LOL! you're not kidding. Here's a joke. We originally thought about getting our AS as a playhouse for the kids. Buy a $3k airstream, let them play in it for a few years, sell it for the same price. Unfortunatley, we found one too nice for a playhouse, and I've been spending all my free time and free money fixing it up!

Physics: 1 watt/hr= 3.41 Btuh. It makes absolutely no difference if that watt goes into an incandescent light bulb, a toaster, ceramic heater, quartz heater, oil heater, or overpriced copper coil heater or Dyson heater. A 1000 watt heater of any kind or type or BS claim produces the same 3410 Btuh. The typical 1500 watt produces 5115 Btuh, no matter how it is delivered, even by Sir Henry Dyson.

All claims of "better heat", more efficient heat, more heat or heat produced by Amish mantle fireplaces are best evaluated by the ONE relevant fact in the situation: One watt produces 3.41 Btu, and one watt over one hour produces 3.41 Btuh. Electric heat is electric heat is electric heat.

Sorry, I get worked up over the advertising of electric heaters. I will go sit quietly and take my meds now. Grin

@idroba: My neighbor has one of those silly Amish-fireplace things and swears it's the best thing since sliced bread. No amount of facts could convince her that it's just an electric space heater, you might as well tell her the earth turns backward for an hour every third Tuesday.

I suspect the same is true of many devotees of this Dyson thingo... after all, if it's not superWonderful they wasted $350.

No, but I think that it is the main criteria for being Dyson.

We are Dyson fans and I would love to have one for our Airstream. I won't pay full price tho. My plan is to wait for one to come up on craigslist for half price. I will be patient.
