I do have a small electric cube heater & use it instead of the furnace when I have hookups.

I am looking for another Casita, and I would prefer a furnace. I usually have electric hookup, and can use an electric heater. if not having electric the fan on the furnace will not work anyhow. I still think it is nice to have one for resale value
The furnace fan runs off of 12 volt, or the battery if not plugged in.

The furnace would probably be a good thing for re-sale, but...are you buying it solely to resell? If so, get the furnace. If not, and you live in a moderate climate, go without. I live in the Carwash State (western Washington) where it's not only cold for much of the year, but wet, as well. That's the other thing, you want to keep the camper dry.

Yes, it has been done. You can order the furnace from Casita. If you don't want to tackle the project yourself, go see Larry Gamble at Little House Customs in Yantis TX.
I wouldn't be without my furnace.

I recently replaced my OEM furnace thermostat with a Hunter Model 42995B. (There are other makes and models that will work also. Get a battery operated one.) The mod should take the average person no more than 30 minutes. By reducing the large temperature swings of the OEM analog unit the digital thermostat makes a significant improvement to your comfort when using the furnace.

We live near Glacier Park and like to camp there in the spring and fall, when the Park essentially belongs to us:) There are no hook-ups in the park. One of our biggest pleasures is going camping there, having a full day of hiking, sight-seeing, etc. and taking a hot shower that evening. There are few greater "little" pleasures than coming out of the shower into the warm and toasty main area. I don't know if lacking a furnace would add to resale potential, but I would think not having one could dissuade some potential buyers.
I'm in Whitefish and looking at the SD 16' and 17'. Any opinions or advice?

A small LP gas lantern will do wonders on a cold morning. Keep a couple of windows cracked to be on the safe side.
