Bob, your correct on the depth, but some wall mounted fireplaces mount right to the wall thus no clearance, on the back. The requirement for clearance is distance from the ceiling and floor. I have a flamelux alps which came with a hanging bracket which you mount to the wall, then hang the fireplace on it. Have you considered that you could put the mounting bracket on the wall and mount and dis-mount the fireplace when you want to use it. The fireplace gross weight is around 33 lbs, thus is very manageable and would be no big deal to go through the process. You would also need a wall outlet/receptacle close by to directly plug into.
In my case for in the MH, I need to jury rig some kind of swinging arm to mount the fireplace on. Good luck
