Never seen one fitted to a folding camper as they were designed for metal bodied vehicles.However, I have heard of them being fitted in fibre-glass boats. You will need a fairly decent leisure battery as they use quite a bit of power when first starting up (around 12 or 14 amps) this drops to about 4 amps per hour when they get warmed up. They can also be quite noisy which you will notice more with only canvas between you and the exhaust.The heater, fuel tank, fuel pump and air ducting will take up quite a bit of space.

Agreed Marg6. Advantages are take up no space, need no 12volt supply, make no noise and keeps you nice and warm.
A modern FC heater would be a Propex but these are noisy and use quite a bit of 12 volt power and take up space in a locker.
