Portable and mobile auxiliary heating devices parking heater for roof tents, tents, boats, conservatories or hut

In many forums and blogs you will find great "Do It Yourself" or DIY projects, where a parking heater for the roof tent is installed in an old ammunition box.
Portable and mobile auxiliary heating devices parking heater for roof tents, tents, boats, conservatories or hut - DIY - build the portable heater yourself. A great do-it-yourself project, the diesel parking heater in the ammunition box or army canister.

The idea is great - the parking heater can be placed outside, you then lay a suitable insulated hot air hose in the tent - it is operated with the remote control. If you can't or don't want to tinker, you can already find mobile complete systems with a small diesel tank, heating and fan and including remote control for less than 200 euros.

Such an air heater on an electric or diesel basis is also often used for caravans, tents and hunting lodges, you only need a 12v power source, which we have with us anyway with our touring vehicles. Or you can use a battery box like the Ecoflow Mini or Delta2. So what is on the market right now that suits us travelers? What solution will keep us warm during the winter time doing vanlife and overlanding?
