This little Webasto heater will be an interesting project to install. The previous owner says it’s from an old camper van, and it still has a bunch of camper material attached to it. After quite some searching I found a user manual and an installation guide for exactly this heater for exactly my car. Now I just have to find some more hoses and electrical parts, and the installation can begin!

Webasto diesel heater

I went to a bed store to browser around for sleeping solutions. The space I have for sleeping will be approximately 1.85m x 0.85m. I found a top mattress that is 2.00 x 0.90. I’m sure I can make that work.

(The picture below is a temporary solution with the passenger couch folded up. I probably have about 1.50 to sleep on, so I’ll be tight )
