Default RV Heat Storage

I'm fitting out a microcar as a one-man RV, and would like to store some heat for overnight and morning. The nights are still freezing here. If it gets a lot of use, I'll probably fit a water muffler to recover half of the combustion heat, as well as tapping into the cooling system for its quarter. A stove might replenish the heat for an extended stay.

I'm thinking that my water tank should contain lots of paraffin enclosed in tubes to maximize the heat storage and stabilize the temperature. I'd really appreciate any advice on such systems.
