If you put it in a box van fond a way to vent the diesel heater....too much soot...
Or you could burn kerosene

So it the diesel heater that what I need to vent?
Do you know if I can use kerosene instead
And not have to vent

Provided there are no regulations in your area that prevent such equipment from being mounted in a truck... Just make sure you vent all the exhaust and you should be ok.

You will still Need to vent....
Kerosene still puts out some smoke
Also massive amount of exhaust heat
I don't like propane because they dot vent and that leaves too much heat in the van
Heat isn't good for engine blower pump....
Also the heater needs to have a lot of air flow....
My guess is the airflow is why they wanted this in a trailer as they are a pressure washer place

I would be thinking about engine as well as burner exhuast, also need to think about air intake on the engine needs to be fresh air.
