I also think it would help to google around for people who actually do this, for ideas.

I have a tent that fits in my F-150. I am open to suggestions on what type of heater would be best for the inside of this type of tent. I am a little skeptical about using a propane "Mr. Heater" type inside this type of tent. I have looked at several of the heaters that plug into the power plug-in. Does anyone have any suggestions on what type of heater would be safe and senseable for a Pick-up truck tent. Please contact me by either PM or my yahoo email address.

this brings me back, it might sound crazy but we used a coleman fuel lantern to warm things up and turned it down when we went to bed. worked pretty well. that said it doesn't get all that cold down here.

I agree with not leaving propane heaters on in a tent overnight. I usually will start one up to heat the tent before I go to sleep. I'll partially unzip a window on the side opposite of the wind. I'll toss a couple of body warmers in my sleeping bag and let it warm up and turn off the heater when I go to bed.

When I wake up in the morning I'll turn it on and let it run for fifteen minutes before i get out of the sleeping bag and leave it on while I get dressed. This system works pretty well for me. I use a little buddy medium size heater. It has a sensor and cutoff but I'm not willing to trust it.
