Anyone know what this is? Looks like a heater! If so - I need it!

I saw this on one of the airstreams in the classified section

Looks like it's vented to the outside, which I like opposed to the catalytic heater.

Our airstream was redone in Florida in the original furnace was removed along with ductwork.

If anyone is familiar with this it would be a huge help if you someone could help me identify it

It is a fireplace. Pursue the classified and ask the owner where they got it. Google marine lpg fireplace and see what comes up.

It's a Dickinson Newport propane heater. Mine has been used in my trailer for four years now.

It's great!

WOW, that is about as cute as cute can be! I want one, and I don't have anything to put it in.

Heats it up no problem?
I have no furnace, so this is an awesome solution.

Did you mount it yourself?

Yeah, I've used it down to 20 degrees or so. Always going to be warmer near the heater than at the end of the trailer, but it's fine.

Install is pretty easy. Gas, 12 volt power, and a hole in the trailer.

The pipe is double walled so it draws air in through the same pipe that it exhausts, so it is totally sealed from the air in the trailer. 12 volt usage is very low. You'll probably need at least one piece of extension pipe for it as well, depending on how high you mount it.

There is probably some more on the install in my thread linked below.
