I use Damart thermal unders....a bit more expensive but a really good product and long lasting; like a second skin.

Absolutely Gypsy ..... electric fan heaters for sure. Will likely get 2 x BigW cheapies: one for each bedroom in the tent :)

You'll probably find that one will do both Kylie, they are very efficient in small spaces. I have only ever used one for both the annex and bedroom section of the camper and even then not overnight as it gets too hot. I only used it before bed and early in the mornings.

HOT WATER BOTTLES with covers are also a must have.

Agreeing with gypsy - the fan heaters are great and one would be heaps unless the two areas are completely separated.

I just reach out an arm in the early pre-dawn and switch on, and it goes off when I'm dressed and bundled up.

The two bedrooms are completely separate, with a 3x2.3m "lounge" in between, so I think 2 might be in order.

LOL .... yes my father said the same thing. couldn't believe the space inside, though it only take 20 mins to set-up!
