Last winter my brother in-law bought a Lasko ceramic tower heater. It has a digital display, a remote control. It rotates so that it heats evenly.
When the heater I presently have dies, I most likely will get a Lasko. I was really impressed by the evenness of the heat.

I , too, have a Dyson and it does a great job. The heater and fan are adjustable. It has a remote, so don't have to get up. The fan does a good job in the summer. Bought as a reconditioned with full warranty.

we use a small oscillating heater with adjustable settings ...I think 750-1500w... but my favourite addition last fall was an electric blanket on the bed with dual controls .... we mostly have just used it to have a toasty bed to climb into but its a great option if you wake up a little cold during the night.

I also use one of the heaters that looks like an old radiator.
No danger of catching anything on fire.

What are you guys using successfully?
Hi Steve

I use a permanently installed pic-a-watt electric heater. They can be jumpered for various wattages when installed, anywhere from 400-1500 if I recall correctly. I have mine set for 1500.

Electric heat is a fruitful source of RV fires, and there have also been some tragic accidents where people used a generator to run their electric heat overnight leading to CO from the generator accumulating in the RV. Don't let that be you

For fire safety I believe the safest thing to do is find a place where you can permanently mount an electric heater where proper clearances to everything are maintained. Bedding is the usual problem particularly since so many areas can be made up into a bed.

I have some photos of my install that you can search for if interested.

I find that with my 30' the 1500 watt heater will keep the trailer about 15 degrees warmer than it is outside.
