It might work..It will have to be vented and how old is it.Is it safe.For under a $100 you can get a propane heater made for what you want to do.Very safe.

Spider webs tend to block up those old camper furnaces bad if they are not used or cleaned regularly. I agree for the time and effort to remove and install a camper furnace in a deer stand a portable heater with a CO safety shut off seems much easier.

Also lately its not been that cold in deer season. Couple opening days I wished for an AC unit instead of a heater.

I would't see why it wouldn't work. I will say the heater in my camper is a little noisy....you can hear the burner and the fan is kinda loud.

Buddy Heater . 1 lb. canister lasts 7 hours . 20 lb. bottle lasts 3 days nonstop. More than enough heat for an 8X8 shoot in shanty

Re: pop up trailer furnace in a shanty?

My first camper (late 1960's) had a propane heater that had no circulation fan. The pilot was manually lit and turned off. It worked strictly by the "heat rises" principal and did a good job in a 19 ft camper. It also had a propane mantel light mounted on the wall. That thing threw a lot of heat just by itself.
