    I have a Merc Sprinter I converted to a camper, I need info on fitting a water heater for a shower and for the basin. What I need to know if there are Gas/220/12V small enough and how do I go about fitting a heater and where to get one?

    Hi Shamba,

    We contacted Motorhome-World with your query. This is their response.

    “Motorhome-World uses a 19ltr Hansen geyser throughout our models, it is a locally manufactured geyser, specifically for leisure use. The unit heats by means of 220v or LPG. 12volt is not considered for efficiently heating water.
    With the 220v/LPG unit you will need to make a hole in the camper / motorhome walls as to vent to excess heat and burnt gasses outside. Should you not wish to make any hole, there is also a 220v only unit available.
    Recommended (as per supplier) with this geyser is a 12volt pressure water pump with max. pressure 1.8bar and a water pressure expansion tank to stabilize any fluctuations in pressure.
    you can view / buy the unit online at or visit any of our branches to do the same. Price R6,200 incl vat for the dual 220v/LPG geyser.”

    Hope this helps :)

    Hi Shamba.

    I have been using a Hansen  geyser 220V and LPG, 19 L on my self built off road trailer since 2016. No hassles at all after all.tjese years through Kalahari sand, Savuti water and mud and rattles and corrugation ofbthebkess beaten roads. I recommend Hansen without reservation. These geysers are also small and use little gas
