What is a good price for this Webasto?

It has a remote start etc....\I'm not sure about the install, can I get instructions online?  It is for my little VW Bus (diesel 5 Cyl).  I thought it would be a nice Xmas present if i can get the price down.  I really know nothing about Webasto, can anyone tell from the pics how many BTU/whatever it is, and also will I be able to use it later for my big bus (sure looks small to me for that)?
Look around online didn't find a 101 on Webasto.
Thanks as always.

I can't comment on what a good price would be, however I do remember that the new price of a 'webasto parking heater' was around $800 about 10 years ago - but the timer was extra.
Anything worth doing, is worth OVERdoing.

I have that exact model Webasto for sale, and it's brand new. I'd be happy to take less than (the equivalent of) $850 for it, but of course it's on the wrong side of the Atlantic at the moment.

PS. - If it helps, that Webasto model is an OEM preheating options on various big cars, vans & SUVs. I bought mine from Germany, then decided not to use it.
A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

just found install instruction on the Webasto site, I must have spelled  it wrong last time I looked.  I offered the guy $500....but if it only cost 800 10 years ago maybe that is high for a well used unit.
