Amazon sells that cheap detector and it gets terrible reviews, I wouldn't bet my life on it:

Reading the reviews it doesn't sound too good...
I'm leaning toward the Kidde, at least it is a well known name brand... whatever that's worth nowadays...

A few things I've found out about CO detectors:
1. All CO detectors have a limited lifespan, when first introduced they were a year or two, now they're usually about 5-6 years, possibly a bit more.
2. A detector with a digital readout can tell you how much CO is in the air even though it's below the detector's alarm point -- sounds like something worth knowing.
3. Putting one in a van or rv means that the mounting location is not going to meet the usual recommendations, at least not in my Astro (read small).

Does kidde make a rv unit? 3 and a half stars is not a bad review on amazon.

Not that I'm aware of, but I will monitor it closely and report on its performance...

They have a lower operating temperature and humidity limits. Parked in the sun could kill them.

Not to mention the fact that vehicles can shake things up quite a bit, depending on the road. A CO detector designed for a house may not hold up to that, could maybe fail without it being obvious that it's no longer working.

I thought of stuff like that and decided to take a chance. Since the one I am getting has the lcd display it will be very apparent if it stops working, as long as I occasionally look at it that is...
