While your RV will come with an HVAC unit to control temperatures or at the very least a furnace to keep you from freezing, sometimes it’s better to have a couple of space heaters.

Space heaters will let you conserve energy by not using your rig’s larger HVAC unit all the time or as much as you need to stay warm and comfortable. You can supplement with a small space heater and stay cozy.

With that in mind, here are some of the best space heaters out there for RVers.
