I recall seeing someone mount theirs sideways off the wall between the step and the van floor. You can mount them on their side as long as the glow plug is facing up (facing it down will cause it to leak diesel)

I put one in last year under passenger seat but oriented a bit different than op. .
Noise: the pump is fairly annoying, clicking, speeding up and slowing down. I’m thinking how to decouple it to quiet it.
You can defiantly hear the exhaust if you were to walk near the van in a quiet campground 10’ or so if it’s quiet outside. It can also smell.
But it’s better than freezing.

I found a used Espar at a Truck salvage outfit and mounted it under the back seat with ducting to the front and through the cargo wall into the back. Instead of running fuel lines to the tank, I T'd into the fuel line of my 2003 with a one way valve between it and the fuel filter to keep the heater from draining the filter. Worked well for several years. The noise sounds like a jet engine taking off and would certainly be annoying in a camp ground. May not work in the 2004 and newer with the fuel pump in the tank. May not want to pump fuel through the pump.
