Diesel heater

Would mean carrying diesel with you but not a bad price and runs off 12 volt for wild camping

The heater might be a bit too much at 4.6 Kw or 2.8Kw on its lower setting.
The electric demand at 70w would limit how many hours you could have it on for as well.
The 2Kw option though more expensive would be a more suitable option and with an electricity demand of 29w it might be possible if the battery could be recharged at least every second day.
It seems an odd website, the link to the eBay shop doesn't link though there is an eBay shop. The eBay site is more expensive than their own site. Notionally sold from Preston but the language used on both sites seems like that found on sites that are based in China or India. Some mixed opinions on the eBay feedback.

All in all quite happy to have the Riviera heater.

After driving h.g.v 's around GB and europe for 25 years i have seen more than my fair share of these heater's , when new they are very good, but soon develope faults and fail at the worst possable time requiring specalist repairer's, and these were the quality ones fitted ot scania and merc's, it always paid to carry candle's as emergency stand-by, i dread to think what these cheaper unit's would be like, buyer beware !
