Considering purchasing a Webasto diesel heater ex UK.
As the price is just over the $A1000, duty should be payable.
Has anyone done this and if so did you have to pay the duty?

Cheers

Sounds like you could ask them to invoice you for $980 happens all the time.

I am also thinking of putting a Webasto into our new CT. I would be very interested to see how you get on. Is there any difference between the UK model and Aussie model?

Hi evaredy
To the best of my knowledge they are the same units.
they appear to be the same as the one I installed in my boat.
I'll keep you informed.
As far as the duty goes the actual price of the unit ex UK is below $1K
The additional cost shown on the shipping docket is for Freight.

What type of CT are you fitting it in? Ours is an Ultimate.

I am fitting it to an Adventure Offroad Camper, the Grand Tourer. I was lucky enough to have a fellow camper on another forum show me his Webasto setup in a KK.

I was impressed with the heater, it is a little noisy to start, but after a few minutes it quietens down and is hardly noticeable.

Rather than try to explain the bed setup of the camper, I have included a video.



On the drivers side, there is approx 1100L of storage, this is where the unit will live. I just have to work out how and where to run some ducting.

Thanks Geoff.
I have checked these out and I need an external sensor that are not available for these units.
Bugger!

This allows you to take the fresh air intake from the out side,or another location instead of from inside the van or camper.
I my case taking the air from inside is not really practical due to lack of space & ease of installation etc.
I used this set up when installing one in my last boat.
I also like to have fresh than recirculated air.

I am guessing I will be in the same boat. I will have the unit installed in the storage area, so it will need to get the air from outside the CT.

Seeing hows you've had one in the past, is there any chance you could let me know what extra parts would be needed?

The kit,(from memory) is fine for a basic installation,however keep in mind that you only get 1mtr of ducting and 0.5 of a mtr. exhaust pipe,so check what lengths you need,also a fuel tank of your choice.
Installation is quite straight forward with good installation instructions


www.sales.butlertechnik.com > these are the people I have been corresponding with,there are others but you should compare what comes in each kit.

Happy to help out if possible,you may like to e-mail me direct?

cheers

Try one of these, see ebay auction number 350794663578, virtually identical to the Webasto down to parts being interchangeable.
No affiliation etc, just know of a few that have been installed and running perfectly.
