Heating 28' 2011 Airstream International

A quick question out of the blue. Does anyone know how much propane it takes (approximately) to keep a 28' 2011 Airstream (or thereabouts) warm (-ish, say 64) when it's in the low 40s outside? Like for a night's sleep? I have house guests that are staying in mine and I'm so afraid they're going to run out of propane in the middle of the night.
Thanks.

Do you have the heat pump in the AC unit? They could use that instead of the propane furnace. For one night, unless your tanks are very low I think you will be fine but the heat pump would work better.

Remember that the heat pump has the same issues as the AC for use at home. If you don't have good electrical service close to the trailer or a very-heavy-duty extension cord, it's not good for the heat pump.

I got a 25 foot 30amp extension cord from Vintage Trailer Supply for just that purpose. Motorhome is close to home outlet, but you never know how far electrical box will be from campsite. Never hurts to be prepared.
Thanks, Derek

Really not that much. Not sure off hand. You can always use the tank from your gas grill. That would be more then plenty if that helps.

Can't wait for our upcoming trips with our new traveling companion, the puppy will be old enough for us to pick up on Thanksgiving weekend.

Here's a picture of me covered with Westie pups :-)

Hi,

LOVE the Westie pups! Can't wait to see pix of your new 'addition' to your family.
They are great pets, Bentley is my 3rd Westie, he's just turned 6 years old in the photo.
Have a great week.
Thanks, Derek

Hi Art, and welcome to the group. I met a couple around five years ago who pulled in next to me at a campground, each driving a big "bucket truck", one pulling a '70s era Airstream. They lived there around five or six months. They were a husband and his blond wife, probably in their mid-40s. They live in the Airstream for half the year, traveling to just about any area where they work for various telephone companies. That's why they own the bucket trucks. Then they go back to Florida and live the rest of the time on their boat!!! WHAT A DEAL!! I thought it would be a great lifestyle...if I could swim.

My name is Tim, I live just north of Atlanta in Cumming, GA. I'm 40, soon to be 41 in Febuary. I'm a single guy, I've been single since 2005. I have a "new to me" 1977 Overlander, which has been named the Tin Taj. I've always admired the beauty of the airstream from afar. And finally decided to take the plunge. I'll be glad to post a photo, as soon as i figure out how..lol. I'm hoping I'm road ready and able to make the FOD rally in Arkansas Jun8-10

I've saved a lot of money and headaches by surfing through the forums.
Thanks to all that post and reply!!
