    that is a great price,
    Seams Camco has bought out the Wave heaters and the quality isn't what is used to be, plus the control knob has been switched from the front of the heater to the side. Normally not an issue unless you are installing it where there's a limited amount of room at the sides of the heater.

    All catalytic propane heaters put out a good amount of water vapor with the heat. You definitely need good ventilation while using one. The Wave models seem to be a step up from the Mr. Heater ones.
    Do your research, take the necessary precautions such as ventilation and a CO detector.

    I was going with this Wave 3 but spent tons more for a forced air furnace for the moisture free and CO free heat. I wanted the peace of mind that I could run it while sleeping and still wake up. Plenty of folks do but...
