We Last did a Heater Review in 2019 so it is Time for an Update

Heaters can make a massive difference to your Micro Camper experience making you more comfortable and extending your season.

At Redcote Leisure we sell 5 different electric heaters The Kampa Diddy, Ovalado Compact, Outdoor Revolution Portable PTC Ceramic , Outdoor Revolution Electric Eco and The Kampa Cuboid from what I have read on the web the Kampa Diddy seems to be the most popular choice among the Micro Camper users but is this just because it is the one that has been on the market the longest and it is also the cheapest in this blog we will be testing to see if it is worth spending a few extra pounds on your heater. We also have one Gas Heater the Outdoor Revolution Portable Gas Heater for well-ventilated Outdoor Spaces.
