I figured this might be the best place to post this. So I have a bn4 I got from a VW bus about 20 years ago. My haffie has no heat at all. Im sure this may be overkill, but has anyone fitted a petrol heater to their Haffie? If so, where did you mount it?

A fuel burning heater was an option for Hafingers - goes on the passenger side under the dash - Section 30 of the parts manual has it listed and the owners manual has glimpses of it at the start where it gives the dash layout and there is a section near the end.

As an alternative to the burner you could install the exhaust heat exchanger system (similar to a beetle heater).

Ive seen it placed there. The bn4 is quite large by comparison, so its not really an option. Plus the jack goes in that area.

Im not keen on the heater box idea from the exhaust either. I dont have those parts and its probably more expensive to get them than it is to use the heater I have lying about.

The actual heater goes on the passenger side footwell, with a rail for the passenger to put their feet on. The exhaust exits through the floor in front of the wheel.
Simplest thing would be to post on Facebook, as the Europeans have these and can post some pictures of the installation. I am no sure there are any pictures on here.
Lurch, my Haflinger has the heat exchanger system for heating and it works well. It is similar to the Beetle system in that is uses hot exhaust gas to heat the air that is already heated a bit by the cylinders and then along a tube on top of the torque tube and into the cab. Unless you can find the complete system as a "spare parts" listing, it would be expensive to put together bit by bit.

I am thinking of trying one of these. Small and cheap - not petrol but does have its own diesel tank.

Ok, I posted on Facebook requesting some pictures. hopefully that will help sort things for me to get an idea of what to do.

Those little diesel heaters work very well. I have one in one of my VW LTs and it keeps it warm all night when its below freezing outside. I actually have one in like new condition sitting in a box. I thought about installing it, but I am not keen on having to supply two different fuels.

Thanks for the offer, but I already have this heater. So I intend to work with what I have.
