Default Central heating, yes or no?

Just wondered how many of you would say that central heating is a necessity in a van. We were going to go for double glazing but not sure now if both would be better as I am prone to being a bit 'nesh' even when others are saying it's warm. It's extra expense I know but...

If I was buying a new one I would go for it but ours stays warm enough without. Its more convenience than necessity.

Hi Sammy. We have central heating in our van but I prefer to use oil filled rads. If ours didn't have c h there is no way I would pay x amount to have it installed. But that's only my view

If you can yes, especially as you want to use it for a long season. Double glazing most important closely followed by central heating in my humble opinion

Ours has DG & CH, we've only had to use it a couple of times so far, given the tropical summer we've had we have an 11 month season I don't think I would want to go without it
