I have the Heating Buddy. I tried using it, but the fumes it gave off was awful. Anybody else have issues with the fumes it produces? Smells Like those Old Coleman Catalyic tub heaters. Maybe my unit is bad or something.

Have never had a problem with fumes on either one of our Heater Buddy models.

Something is not right. We use a Big Buddy when spring boondocking in a popup, never smelled any odors from the heater.

I've been using a Mr. Buddy "Little Buddy" heater for years. No smell, works great in small spaces. It actually fits inside a 5 gallon bucket, with a couple of propane bottles, for storage.
