Review Details

Safe heaters are nice to have around the house and even while boondocking or dry camping. The Camco Olympian Wave Gas Heater is one of those types of portable heaters that does not need an electrical source, which is why it is so nice for camping. Some camping sites do not have an electric hook-up and it can get chilly during the night in some spots. This heater a popular heating source on those camping trips or chilly nights in the house.

What We Liked

  • No Electric
    Because it runs on LP gas, there is no need for an outlet to be on hand which means that it can be used virtually anywhere, safety precautions permitted.
  • Shut-off Valve
    The shut-off valve prevents dangerous emissions from accidental non-ignition fuel discharge.
  • Can Be Used As A Primary And Secondary Source
    If you do not want to use the heater as your primary source, you can run it at a lower setting. If you want to use it for your primary heat source you can turn it to 3000 BTU's.
  • Wall Mountable
    Wall mountable heaters are convenient because they aren't in the middle of the floor taking up space.

What We Didn't Like

  • Hot To Touch
    A heater that is hot to touch can be unsafe around children. If you mount it high enough, it will stay out of the way of little hands.
  • Takes A While TO Heat
    Although this heater does put out a nice amount of heat, it does take a while to warm the area up.


The Camco Olympian Wave Gas Heater is a great heater to have if you ever want to go camping without the hassle of a battery operated or electric heater. The portability and convenience of this heater makes for a perfect gift to a friend, family member, loved one and more. The price of the heater is very reasonable, especially for all the features that come along with it.
