Mark....i have found that when your room is attached....a dual buddy heater works great when set in the room. as science dictates, heat rises and i have had mine out in the teens and been very comfortable.
I leave my very top vents open to create a natural draft.

That works well when you've got an ARB RTT with the access within the dressing room. The heat might warm half the floor in my Camping Lab RTT, via convection, but I doubt it would be very effective. That's one of the reasons I mentioned purchasing yours if you ever upgraded.

Mark won't admit it publicly, but he's working on a radiant floor heating system for his RTT.
Just a little more tubing and it's good to go.

Too bad you don't burn diesel.
The Webasto could heat a roof top tent.

I have one in my top box that ducts into the roof top tent and one inside the truck that heats inside toasty warm.. 2 airtop 2000's.. Wouldn't do another build without them...remember.. Happy wife---- happy life...

I've got a Webasto water heater for a LR Freelander. I guess I could rig up a couple of hoses, water pump, transmission or oil cooler and fan to create a system. That's not happening anytime some with dozens of other projects in queue.

I've made a bit of progress over the last 2 weekends despite the heat, rain and just feeling crappy. Hoping the rain subsides long enough to get some paint on the panels and complete the rear lift gate assembly modifications.

Nope. No higher than the ladder rack setup. The all aluminum construction ,except for the roof frame, makes it lighter than that rack too. It tows like a dream at speed and in curves.

The extended tongue makes a big difference too.

Latest pics... still have to fab the lift gate this weekend. Oh, and mount the tongue box too. The RTT sits 1" higher than on the ladder rack. Combined I think the RTT and topper weigh around 200 lbs. Not a big deal since the trailer probably weighs close to 1000 lbs providing a low CG plus the wider axle and stability. I now have plenty of storage space to pack all of the camping gear and be ready to roll without going through the sheds or garage piecemeal.

Could be. It will likely be generator powered. I haven't worked out the electrical yet but a battery (or two) in the box, inverter, outlets, LED lighting are forthcoming. A fold out tabletop is being considered too.

It's not a Sankey or Mercedes diesel motor mounts but here's the 99% completed project.

The side were from an ARE commercial topper that I reduced by about 4" in height. The rear is fabbed from a sheet of 1/8" aluminum and tubing. Not the prettiest on the inside but functional. My tig machine is not set up yet so I had to use a spool gun. Of course, I hadn't use it it so long I only figured out my welding issues in the last 30 minutes of construction. Oh well....
