Hope you boggers don't mind a question from a Boroma owner (and loving our 5 month old caravan.) We noticed from a number of earlier postings, that a few Bushtracker owners have had a Webasto Heater installed after the delivery of their van. Questions: 1- Can someone please give us a ball mark figure for (a) Supply only (b) Supply and installation of a Webasto heater? 2-Any recommended suppliers and installers in NSW or Qld area. 3- Any other comments for and against the heaters, handy hints etc, would be most appreciated. Two kiwis living in their Boroma full time and feeling the cold!! Many thanks Hendo hendo1944@westnet.com.au

Hi Hendo, We had our Webasto going all night down in Melbourne, it was freezing outside but nice and cosy inside, they are certainly the way to go when you are camped away from mains power, and don't have the luxury of a blow heater or similar going. I think that you will find that Bushtracker charge about $2100 to supply and install the heater and the 19 litre poly fuel tank was about $150 extra. You might like to give BTi a phone call and see if they are prepared to fit one into your van. If not then the Webasto web site should have contact numbers of suppliers who should have installers. I have noticed you on this site a bit, are you going to join all the Bushtracker vans at Copeton? Brian

Hi Hendo We picked up our BT in June and the Webasto + tank + installation cost $2500 from BTi. We travelled to Mt Beauty in the middle of June during heavy snow falls and found the Webasto gave out better warmth than fan heater. We have outlet in ensuite and put very wet snowgear in there each night (including ski boots and gloves; hardest things to dry properly) and had dry warm gear every morning. Would recommend Webasto highly to anyone looking for efficient/cheap heating (coming from the NT I feel the cold very much). Prue

Turist - Thanks for the great service! How about getting someone from Waeco? With all the questions about venting and voltage readings etc it is bound to provide a lot of entertainment and some important information. tgintl/jay We are currently exploring the vastness of Australia.

G'day Marie, Can you let me know the name of the outlet where you purchased your Webasto heater? Were you able to install it yourselves or did the supplier help you with that. Thanks Pete BT = Built Tough

As heaters in caravans is something i'd never considered - i am really interested in the owners comments about the Webasto. I note the following article on DIY fitting a Webasto into a Winnebago which may be of interest: www.around-oz.com/diy_mh/diy_webasto_installation.htm

Also look at Webasto.com.au for product details and dealers

The article makes it sound quite complex but it really is not that difficult
for an experienced handyman. In retrospect I would say that if following the
Webasto instructions precisely, very little can go wrong.
I have installed it myself in the BT with a 42 L. SS tank mounted similarly
to the water tanks.
If you come to Copeton you will see quite a few installed in various BTs.
