Yes the www tells me that on average a human body generates about a 100watts, this makes sense as one is always warmer in a smaller tent than a larger tent or no tent at all. maybe for $16 it is worth the experiment it may even have a placebo effect for Mrs OJ!

Speaking of condensation in the tent, I'm going to try a small USB desk fan you can buy at Office Works for about twenty bucks. Hopefully it will stir the air enough to stop most of the condensation in the Tvan tent.

Not sure about the T van, but we had a camper where you wound up the roof and pulled the beds out at each end. We live in Cooma NSW and the first night out was at Hay. Middle of winter. In the morning there was a frost as heavy as any we had seen in Cooma. We woke up at about 5:00am, and it was as if it was raining inside the van, over the beds. Condensation was incredible. First thing when we got to Mildura was to buy some flysheets, which I fitted that day. Never any more problems with condensation after that. Flysheets also help if you are trying to pack up the van when it has been raining. So I suggest that you investigate some flysheets for your van.

OJ.
Placebos can be incredibly effective.

Try hanging some cheap "space blankets" inside the walls of the tent, to keep radiant heat (from your bodies) from striking the canvas. If they hang to the floor with a slight air gap from the walls, you may also be able to slow convection currents, and reduce the rate at which cold air inside the canvas sinks and circulates.

Reducing losses from your existing 200 W (or more - I reckon your missus would have a pretty good metabolism) may be more effective than adding another 50W.

Thanks for the input and in fact, I'ver recently done that. There's a fly for the top of the Tvan tent they call a tropical roof. It does the same as your flys so hopefully that will also help.

Why not buy an Ebay Diesel heater from China ?
Set it up as a stand alone unit and get either 5 or 3 kw for around $250.

may make condensation worse.

Yes. Not necessarily any more condensation, but it would form on the plastic (and probably "run") rather than soak into the canvas.
