I saw one in a cargo trailer that was used to sell beds & bedding from. It was basically set up like a bed store, there was no smell and once the doors were closed it heated everything up in minutes almost too hot.

I inquired about it and was told it came from a company in Quebec but cannot remember the name, they were building them for the RV and tiny home market.

Well I suppose if the RV is stationary and not moving that would solve the problem of how you are going to gather / haul 6-8 cords a year. If I ever burned a wood byproduct for fuel again, I'd go back to wood pellets sold in 40 lb. bags. It was our last wood stove and much cleaner that bulk logs. Wood stoves are dirty and require frequent cleaning. Then there's the installation of the stove pipe and safety. I use propane logs in our house now and while it isn't our primary heat, we use it practically everyday during the winter months. I suppose in your case you are looking at a very small stove which makes it feasible. If you decide to go with it, research it well and make sure it's safe. Best of Luck.

I only have one question. Have you ever seen how fast an RV burns if it catches fire? Go to YouTube to see how fast they burn. It is amazingly fast.

I love my chocolate colored enameled wood stove.
Itís beautiful! Heats like a beast ~
But Iím tired of hauling in wood and ash buckets.
I want less work the older I get.
But...IMHO nothing beats a stove for heat.
Iíll just adjust when the time comes, hahaha

a manufacturer will NEVER do it do to the risk/liability... now if u want to do on your own have at it and just make sure your insurance is up to date and keep it well away from anything else!!! happy heating

All types of heaters have minimal clearances from combustibles. A wood stove doesn't necessarily pose unique dangers. I've seen very nice, small boat stoves as mentioned earlier. Some are wall-mounted so they take up little space. Some have small wood storage areas below.

Your observation as stated is where I come from in starting the inquiry. Thank you. Now on to the practical issues of making the wood fired heating system
compatible with portability, slide installation clearances for in/out functioning, chimney attachment concerns, etc. Thank you for your response.

Grizzly cubic minis are the only ones I have seen installed. They have a couple of versions on it based on your sq/ft needs.

Check out Western Range Camps. They come with wood stoves as standard equipment. If I camped lots in the northern climates, I'd put in a marine unit.

Wood stove in an RV.

Check out Airforums. Do a search for wood burning stoves . Some Airstream owners have installed stoves in their Airstream.
