Wood stove in my RV

Hello

A company is building me a Tiny House that will be RVIA certified and I want to know if I can put a Kimberly Wood stove in the Tiny House and still have it be RVIA certified?

Kimberly wood stoves only need 6 inches of clearance around it.

I'm also posting a website for Kimberly Wood stoves if you don't know what they are.

The company building the Tiny House should be able to answer your question.
I expect there would be a stove pipe (chimney) height requirement [could be problematic when traveling] and a nonflammable ceiling and roof requirement.

As of right now the building company says they can't certify it if they put a wood stove in. However I don't know if they're just guessing they can't or they know they can't. I've had other people say that they THINK it's ok.

Have your insurance company inspect & approve the installation before you fire it up, in case you do go ahead with the installation.

We lost our second floor from a wood stove fire, but the insurance company rep inspected & approved so we were 100% covered. Still, not a pleasant occurrence.

Have you looked into a radiant heat system under the floor? Better insulation may be another option too.

Why not contact RIVA yourself and ask the question.

i tried emailing the RVIA place but the email wasn't working and I haven't had a chance to call yet. I'll probably try calling today.

I'm not sure I'd consider a woodstove. But a small compact pellet stove I would.

Do you know what a Kimberly wood stove is? They are pretty awesome. You can burn wood pellets, coal, wood, compressed sawdust, or pretty much anything you want. Certain things are better to burn in it but you can bur a ton of different fuels in it. It uses air from outside instead of air from inside the cabin so there isn't the issue of smoke coming back out and making the cabin smoky.

Again its a Kimberly Wood Stove.

Yes, I know what a Kimberly Wood Stove is. I realize you can burn pellets in it, BUT since it isn't powered, nor does it have a hopper, it can't automatically feed the pellets. I've had everything from a fireplace insert, to a fullblown whole house wood fired furnace, to a pellet stove. I preferred the pellet stove for ease of keeping it fed, and the lack of all the mess wood entails. But it's just a personal preference of mine. Plus I'm getting too old to cut, split, & stack firewood. That's for a younger man.
