    We're starting the Troopy build and one of the must-haves is a Webasto/Eberspacher heater in the back of the truck.
    I found a good spot to mount it (near the left hand rear door) so we can get good air supply (the stock rear air vent).
    However, I'm struggling to find a good way to deal with the exhaust.
    Any brilliant ideas ?

    mine is in the right hand corner they is room for the air intake and the exhaust to go straight though the floor
    all so the air supply for the burner has to be direct to the outside no other way you can do it

    As David said - you really need to make sure the combustion air intake comes from the outside to reduce the chance that any carbon monoxide will build up inside the cabin. you should also really fit a carbon monoxide detector so you are alerted early if this should happen.

    thanks for the input, good point on the carbon monoxide detector.
    I'm going to make a custom adapter so I can connect the combustion air intake to the stock rear vent. this way, the combustion air comes from the outside and not the inside of the car.

    David, any chance to take/post some pics of your setup ?
    Especially interested in the exhaust.
