Most fit them under the R&R bed, mines in a side cupboard where the Propex was. And you only need a small bodied 2kW for our climate.

I always fit eberspáchers under the glove box, out of the way , where you can’t use the space for anything else , easy to get to , easy to get power to and really easy to fuel to , weather you use the spare wheel to hold the tank or run fuel line from the engine bay 
great for defrosting screen too 

not sure if the Chinese ones can mount 90° tho

Has anyone tried to retro fit one of these chinese heaters In the original eberspacher location under the R and R bed.

I'm thinking of fitting one and I'd like to try and bot cut holes in the original woodwork.

Hello,

Air-Cooled here... 8)

I went the underslung Eberspacher route

https://club8090.co.uk/forum/viewtopic. ... berspacher

This was fitted in 2016, and replaced with a chinese copy in 2018.

Like this it saves interior space and reduces noise.

Works for me.... :wink:

Cordialement,

:ok
