    Google "Webasto", They likely have a solution for you for both heating and air conditioning. Call them.

    I couldn't remember this for the heat. I did not know they had a/c yet.

    Maybe I looked on the wrong web site, but they did not have anything in the US. It could be Google UK again. THat sneaks in over here.

    Google Webasto Diesel Heaters.

    I would do the link, but it leads to a sales link.

    They have a pdf file and others to look at.

    The pdf file has the phone number.

    Thanks, that was a big help. I did not know they made fuel buring heaters that small. Now, if I can just address the AC issue.

    I don't know what could bedone about cooling other than IdleAire if available . I know cargo vans have used propane camping heaters. I tried one in my dually andwasn't happy with it . Google Espar heaters - good , but pricey .

    Correct me if i'm wrong but can't you mount an apu on the side?

    Lonesome, are you talking about the big expediters or the ones with smaller sleepers?
