Sounds dumb.. but I hate the smell of propane heaters. That being said my Mr buddy heaters are the most used in my collection. They're just so easy.Big Buddy took the chill off in Northern Nevada in Early Oct in a 12x12 Alaknak. Wasn't worried about venting with the windows open.
But the KniCo Packer wood stove certainly heats the tent up more. You can start the Big Buddy from bed before you get up to light the fire.
