Hope you got a chance to look at the video's on this... with your trailer, I think it would be a really easy fit. David and his friends were talking about this yesterday, free heat during the day when the sun is shining would be a awesome savings on the gas bill during the winter.

Anna, thanks so much for sharing this! This looks like a great project for DH and I to take on. The pop can heater looks easy and inexpensive to make.

I'm going to review the video today and put together a list of the materials needed. We already have a lot of them. I have been saving up pop cans and think we have enough now.
