yes it is a diesel Webasto ,
2 years ago we were in Norway , with an outside temperature of 6 C , but 22 C inside .
nice :)
it is also easy to regulate , and start and stop .
if any one is planning a mid season /winter camping , I would strongly recommend it .
car is warm in 5 minutes .

Hey @renago , just read through this again. It has been a while and am sure it has been completed and getting some use by now. Any updates? This is such an awesome build.

ok , as promised , here I am with some small , but important upgrades .
1, I was not too happy with the hestetics and cleaning of the floor , so decided to go with a slim sheet of anti slipping PVC flooring ,
very happy with end result , easy to clean , all in 1 piece , and when wet , you don't slip .
2, the second step was to improve or try to eliminate vibration of the camping chairs and table .
I store them on the left side of the fridge . They were always rattling despite they were tied tightly , on the floor and between each other .
so decided to add a dumping surface under the flooring .
this is made of compressed cork , light weight , nice material , 1 cm thick , and sufficiently duping , but not too soft .
3, last but not least , as you seen I have a pop up roof , that works very well , but .....I wanted also a quick and emergency bed and resting surface .
quick bed , for me , means especially in summer after lunch , sometimes I like to have a short nap :doh:
but don't want all the hassle to fly open the roof .
so a tipper in the corridor will be just great :)
this can also work as an emergency bed , for third person or maybe if the passenger will like to sleep while I am driving .
but also to read in the evening before going to bed .
it is not finished , still working on some details as , textile cover , fixing th legs ecc .
it is very slim , 8 -10 mm thick , very rigid , or very little bending , light and practical to tilt .
it will be covered with a system of cushions in high density , removable with winter and summer covers .
more to come .....
any critics and comments are welcome

bye Renato

thanks guys for your reactions .
here under a small improvement , that is almost unnoticeable , but very handy to keep all things in the right place .
it is a simple net that we bought at Decatlon .
Decatlon planned use for this is a tent organiser .
I cutted the strings , added some velcro and its working great .
cost 8 € aprox , if I remember correctly
