    I've had a 2KW fan heater in it since 6.20am and there's still ice on the windscreen and roof. It's starting to melt now though.

    Problem is, no matter how much you heat it, you're always gonna loose bags of heat out the windows as it's such a massive surface area exposed to the cold. I've found this with my camper and installed thick lined curtains to try and help a bit.

    Agreed on those 12v heaters being rubbish - got one from Argos while I was waiting for the garage to sort my thermostat valve, couldn't even clear the screen with it. Or hear the radio while it was on.
