There are a few advantages. It is way easier to see the temp. It is much more accurate, and you can set the temp you want, and not just guess it was 2/3 of the way between marks (now which two marks was that, and was it 2/3 up, or 2/3 down), and is also easier to turn on and off. I just wish I had of put one in WAY sooner.

Is it difficult to install? Would definitely be easier to operate.

If I'm cold, I turn the thermostat up. It's irrelevant to me what it claims is the temperature.

The digital unit reduces "temperature swing" which occurs when your heat runs until it causes the bimetalic thermostat to expand and cut off, sometimes missing the set temperature by several degrees, thus you get hot. then on the downswing the same occurs and you feel cold. with the digital is more even tempered.

I'm getting one for the camper, any advise as to which one? There seems to be a ton of them.

Yes, choose the one with the biggest digital display. Easier reading in the middle of the night.
