Auxillary heat

What sort of systems have others integrated into their builds to supplement the heat? I want to heat the rear of my 110 TDi a little better this winter.....

A lot of the Brits use either Eberspacher or Webasto. Sorry, I don't have any personal experience with them. Just have seen them installed.

Eber and Webasto are both great. you'll get all the heat you want with the air heater versions if heating the cabin is what you're after. The alternative is adding on an aux heater with it's own fan, which ties into your heater lines.

those are pretty much your two options. There is a 3rd option, which is to fill your cabin with beagles, but I am not a proponent of that course of action.

Swiss Mountain dog is shedding enough fur for a blanket. Problem solved.

Thinking I'll go with a fuel fired unit; opinions on air vs water?

If you want to heat the cab, you need air. Water is for heating the engine when it is not running.

I've discussed this before with great input from the usual suspects:

Most of this is currently installed on the truck. Maybe this year it will be finished by winter.

This is all you need for the cabin, mount it under the second row seat. I had one in my last truck and I wore a T-shirt in the dead of winter

George in Ridgewood NJ installed a cabin heater from an ambulance into his Series and Rohan's series. Two or three years ago Rohan showed up to Winter Romp in a tshirt cause it was so hot in his truck.
