A few years ago I converted a Peugeot partner into a little micro camper, I tried to do it as cheap as possible, in the end including even the purchase of the vehicle was just over £1300. It includes solar electric though the one item I didn’t include was a diesel hearer though.

Even being without a heater I still have used the camper when it is cold ,So here are my top tips and products to help you stay warm in your camper this winter. you can read or watch the video above. If you think I have missed anything please leave a comment so can help others out aswell.

The best tip I can give is make sure you have the right clothing, layering up always helps, i.e. under your jumper have a t shirt or even thermals. As having layers of clothing traps warm air between the layers so keeps you more thermally insulated.

On the same subject of clothing is footwear, so make sure you have slippers or I even have a usb powered foot warmer, This is great for me as I always have cold feet.

If you do have a form of electrics an electric blanket for the cold nights works well, I have a double one, which really doesn’t use that much wattage, I found having on the medium setting is perfect, which only about 35watts. Make sure you have a sheet over the blankets as that works best. As if you just have the blanket and sleep on that doesn’t warm up that well.

Though one of the simplest things to keep you warm in bed is a simple hotwater bottle, For me I found it kept warm for a good few hours, and even then can just reuse water and heat up again

For my camper I have a small butane stove , and as my camper is small, even having this on heating the kettle to have a hot drink, is enough to take the chill off.

As a backup I have a stand alone butane heater, this works great. Though the one if using a heater like this make sure you have adequate ventilation and also make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector. As especially in small spaces if carbon
