Yes, you can rent vans with heaters, but to my knowledge all require mains connection.

In any case, it would pay to read this page before proceeding too far with plans to camp in a van in national parks: www.parks.tas.gov.au/?base=412

These van parks are useful:

You may also want to check out 'freedom camping' - since you appear not to want to stay at van parks - not sure if it is legal in Tassie

Hi, We are looking at doing the same type of winter Tassie trip and wanted to know how you got on and which camper you ended up getting? Any help or suggestions would be great.

Cheers

Scott
