Touring this time of year has the benefit of quieter campsites and a chance to take in the many wonderful sights of the season. However, there’s no escaping the fact that it can also be incredibly cold! One way to tackle the temperature in your campervan is by investing in a heater – and the Black Friday sales have some brilliant bargains if you’re on the lookout for one.
I’ve had a look around and am sharing the deals that stand out the most to me, with discounts on options from De’Longhi and Pro Breeze.

- Weight: 5.5kg
- Heat output: 500 watts
- Voltage: 230V
- Dimensions: 38.5 x 17.3 x 34.0 (W x H x D in cm)
I think this De’Longhi is an impressive option, and not just because of its 28% discount. For instance, it’s able to heat rooms that are up to 15m³, as well as having an adjustable thermostat to let you get your ‘van to the right temperature. I’m also a fan of the design – its curved shape not only looks smart but should help to limit any pain if you inadvertently bump into it. The carry handles are another useful feature, so you’ll be able to move it around your ‘van as required. At 5.5kg, it may be significantly heavier than the Pro Breeze I’ve picked out below, but it’s still relatively lightweight.
- Weight: 0.71kg
- Power: 500w
- Voltage: 220v
- Dimensions: 10.5 (d) x 16.5 (w) x 19 (h)
This is a very compact heater, ideal for those who want to heat a smaller area or are looking for a highly portable option. I really like how lightweight it is, only coming in at 710g. It’s incredibly low wattage too, operating at only 500W, and provides some useful built-in features. This includes an auto-off tip-over switch, while the mini heater also comes with overheat protection. An adjustable thermostat also gives you the freedom to reach a temperature that suits you.
