What's the cubic feet of airspace in the '74 Airstream Ambassador ?

I want to put in a electric heater in my 74 (29') Ambassador. Could you tell me the cubic feet of air space so I get the right size electric heater! I want to use 220V. Thanks , Jeff

It doesn't have to be exact; just multiply length times width times height, and call it good enough. Deducting for the space occupied by furniture and such is more effort than it's worth.

Why do you want to use 240 volts?
Your coach is not wired for 240 volts.
How do you plan on powering the space heater?
Our coach is 26'. We use two 1,500 watt electric space heaters when power is available and temps get down to zero. One heater is plenty when temps are around freezing.
The specs on these heaters are iffy at best. Because it depends on how well insulated the space is.

Thanks my Airsteam is set up on my farm. I use it for hunting friends. I already have 220 wired into it for electric stove I put in. The 220 heaters have higher watts and BTUs then the reg.110 (1,500 watts) I'm not a fan of using prop.

Well 20,000 BTU's should be plenty. That is about what the furnace puts out. The heater in the AC is about 5000 BTU's and it keeps it warn down to about 30.
