Hi all, I’m new to this site and looking for advice. I live in Scotland and love winter camping. However, trying to pursuance my girlfriend isn’t so easy so looking at getting a heater. I’ve got a Berghaus Air 4 so decent size to play with. I was trying to get hold of s Coleman SportCat but they’re nowhere to be found!!

Any thoughts??

Thanks

Compliments to you on a nice family tent.............I like the idea of the Air Beams :thumbsup:

I was in the same position as you a little while ago.....looking out for a tent heater and spent a lot of time researching the options.
There are a goodly few out there to choose from varying in performance/safety....... and price.

The tent you have has quite a large area to heat and to be honest I do not think the "Coleman Sportcat" will be enough for you.
I own and use the Sportcat and it is ok to take the chill off inside a small 3 man tent......just!
So I would think twice about that one and save your money :thumbsup:

I opted for the "Mr Heater Portable" as most of my camping is in the woods rather than on managed sites.......so its size/weight and performance suits my personal needs.

Have you given this type of thing some thought.........it will deliver a useful controllable heat.........and........make you toast :D:thumbsup:
Held in place with a couple of good tent pegs it may do the job better for you......given the size of your tent.

NEW WITH HOSE & REGULATOR 4.5 KW PROPANE CAMPING CALOR GAS BUILDERS SITE HEATER | eBay

The tent you have is well ventilated and fire retardent........but without stating the obvious.....care is needed with the use of ANY gas heater in a tent :thumbsup:

Good luck with your search.........be sure to let us know how you get on;)

Edit to add:

There are a few on eBay second hand in reasonable condition.
If you have to add new hoses........regulators and maybe pay for a service you may as well buy new and have peace of mind as its being used in a tent primarily.

Thank you for your interest in the Mr Heater:thumbsup:

To be honest and quite frank......I am in two minds what to do :)

Need to have a word with my "Number One Son" as I may gift it to him and his family for their camping trips.
