Which heater, Ford Transit conversion ?

I'm thinking about converting a Ford Transit to a RV .
I'm wondering on what my options are for heat, while not plugged in .
I had a Espar diesel heater in a boat and didn't like it, unreliable.
I replaced it with a Propex HS 2000 and it was very reliable but the thermostat
let it get too cold then it ran too long, so you went from too cold to too hot .
Any ideas?
There must be propane RV furnaces I could install ?
If there is a better forum for this please move it.
Thanks !

Look at the Olympian Wave heaters. They can be fueled from a small canister to a full size tank. If for only occasional use, look at the Buddy Heaters, their small unit would be plenty.

The above are catalytic heaters with low oxygen shut offs, but should be used in a well ventilated area, like the cab of the Transit, with both front windows down a couple of inches.
