Presumably this one: Model SF12TA - Cord Free "Off the Wall"
The heater is supported by the receptacle box, which I'm sure is fine in a house; however, RV outlets are often installed in thin panels without any other support, so they might not be suitable for holding up a 3.5 pound appliance... especially while bouncing down the road. The bracket clings to the edges of the faceplate of the receptacle, held against it only by a plug in the top outlet of the duplex receptacle with some kind of locking mechanism. It's something to think about if considering this heater.

I think if it had a proper mounting bracket it would be an interesting idea for someone who wants to semi-permanently install a heater without doing wiring (if they already have an outlet in a suitable location), or for someone who wants a removable heater (perhaps carried only in the cooler parts of the year). Maybe the heater's bracket could be screwed to the wall to secure it properly, leaving the heater still removable.

I like the two power levels, two fan speeds, and automatic switching between them.

They say
The No Glow high tech heating element delivers 5120 BTU's of heat... no other portable 120 volt heater delivers more heat!
Sure... because most portable 120 volt heaters deliver exactly the same amount of heat, since they are designed to use the same amount of power (1500 watts, as limited by regulations) - they are all 100% efficient.
