Webasto Heater in your camper?

So, I have been thinking about switching my propane heater to a diesel webasto and curious if anyone has done this.
There are a few advantages such as less moisture in the air and the unit I was looking at, uses less electricity which is important to me since I do so much snow camping.
Obviously, I would need a satellite tank which would be a bit of pain, but manageable.
Anyone do this or heard of it? Thanks

I don't know much about diesel heaters except once back in the 80s I thought about installing one in a small cabin boat we had, but our first camper, a 11.5' security had a sort of "pot burner" type heater that required no electricity. I sometimes wonder why those are not available as an option. I would prefer one over the blower type we have now. We too often camp, sometimes for up to a month with a few trips to town for water/dump food and propane, in remote areas where the temps are often below freezing. I finally installed a Wave catalytic heater in our camper which works fairly well.

Please let us know what you decide and how it works.

We had a Bonair tent trailer that had a plenum type of heater as well, no fan and worked like a dream. Only problem was the amount of moisture.
