Might be worthwhile contacting Jon White at vwspares.ie for a price, he's the Irish agent for JustKampers  ;)

Let us know how it works out for you.  I really need to get heat sorted in my van too.

Have a 1600 in the van.Bought it of ebay and had a few issues with in the first 6 months. But once I got it fixed,it stayed fixed and has been used a lot over this christmas. I use it driving as well.There is a link to fitting instructions on the bluebird customs site.

Thats fair enough.
A week ago in sub zero temps when rascal1 had his sidedoor open after the bus being parked for a couple of hours the heat was bellowing out
My 4 month old will thank me for getting him the heater for the bus. LOL

Mine heater arrived today, I only ordered it yesterday, and if it works as hot as it looks ill be dead chuffed with it!!! :camping

Time to find the spanners and drivers and away I go, it even comes with an idiots guide to fitting it, so it should be nice and simple.

So it comes with the hoses etc in the pic above?

Jon White enquired today about it and was told there is no fitting fit ?  ? ?  ??  ?
