How long can I have this heater on? I drive long distances sometimes for business and, sometimes, fun. Is this heater going to be able to handle that kind of use rate?

Is this thing going to take up a bunch of room in my van?
The product is made to fit under your floor or inside the interior of your vehicle. It is relatively small and compact. However, it is larger than an Espar heater.
Wait, so which one is more powerful? The Espar or this one?
Technically, it is this model. It is capable of 8KW and the Espar puts out 2.2KW. But that does not mean that it is more efficient. It could use more fuel. However, it will probably heat an area faster but you should be wary of where you have that heat directed in case of fire. Anytime heat is involved then you should be careful of what could be heated in the process of making your cabin warm.
