    Interesting project. I found this, which looks similar to what you have in mind. For me, it seems impractical for a roof top tent. I’m interested to see where you end up.

    Or, for about $60 all in, you could just buy a small Mr. Heater.

    Or one of those electric “back seat” heaters from Rampage, Rugged Ridge, etc. I think I’d prefer that over something than runs on fuel.

    Hi Guys,

    a heater like Planar 2D have some big benefits over the things you named.

    I have had used a heater like "mr. heater" and I cant recommend it. If you are sleeping or let dry alone the tent, maybe the gas or air heater will flip and starts a fire. Also this sort of heater gets very hot. Gas-Heaters also produce CO2 so you should never run one in a small room like a tent.

    Specialy in winter you have a lot of condensations water in you tent/on the tent walls. If you have a heater like the Planar 2D, you get warm dry air in and it move the cold, wet air out. Also the Planar 2D have a sensor, so you can pree sett a temperature you like. The heater will automatically adjust the power that is needed to hold the temperature you have set.

    If you are getting wet in the rain, you can hang your cloths in your tent and let them try. Its not for a week-end trip with some good weather. The Planar 2D Box I build is made for a longer trip with up to -10°, snow and ice.

    To run the planar I will use my car batteries, so I dont need to carry one extra. I also will made a quick connect to my fuel tank, so I just need to plug the planar in and everything work. Dont wanna carry extra diesel in my car.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
