Wood Stove

As an old Fire Chief there many concerns some have already been addressed but the one I have not heard is make up air rv’s are usually pretty air tight and fire uses a lot of oxygen

There's a young couple who survived a blizzard while camping offgrid in their 13 ft Scamp travel trailer fitted with a wood burning stove.

I hope that link works.
I think you can ask them questions about their stove via YouTube.

Wood stove

I put a wood stove in my 2001 Winnebago Journey as we do a lot of boondocking as well. I used a “cubic mini wood stove” ,. You can find them on line. England Marine supply had all of the single wall stainless pipe as well as cap, escutcheon and damper.. I built a hearth behind the passenger seat that it sits on and also acts as as wood box.I have an extension I put on top for good draw. Best heat ever to keep the coach dry inside in an Oregon winter. A word of caution. Keep a window cracked while using and DO NOT open a slide out while using. Good luck!

Heater

No idea if anyone else suggested this butt I'll just wade in. What you are talking about is a Dickenson Newport Heater. They are made in wood, propane, and diesel fired versions. Dimensions are about 10 by 10, about 20 inches tall. 3 inch flue pipe into an air gap pipe through the roof. Installed correctly they do not leak. The stove itself is not inherently dangerous, but must also be installed correctly. I installed a diesel version in my 33 foot sailboat. Did very nicely. Guy I sold the boat to is spending a good part of this winter on the boat in New Jersey and is happy as a clam with it. It has a glass window door in it so you can see the diesel flame. Very soothing. Also quite pricey. When I bought Go2 Marine was the best price. I'm sure that's changed.

I've installed a number of wood burning stoves on boats. The hard part is installing a chimney that can give a good draft and a "Charley Noble" to exhaust the smoke downwind. There are a number of really nie soapstone stove that don't weigh alot, have closable doors, give fairly good heat with great atmosphere and can burn wood or charcoaal. My boat customers burned cutoff's from local dowell mills (dry, small pieces, hardwood). THe size of these soapstone stoves varies from 14" wide by 16-18" tall and 8" deep up to some pretty large sizes. They can be airtight but DO need a draft to keep the fire lit. I'd google marine soapstone stoves.

Wood RV Fireplaces

Try Katydid or another one by unforgettable firellc.There are youtube’s on them.High efficiency gassifiers.If it smokes ,you are wasting the second burn of the gas given off wood.

Foam in the wall construction once lit will put an end to this debate in a bad way. Not a good idea. Not safe.

I wonder if you'd need to provide a small duct to provide replacement air. Wood stoves maybe require more air than an RV furnace, and could make for some drafty spots. If one is brave enough to cut a hole for a chimney, another hole for air shouldn't be a big deal.

MY Eagle Cap Truck Camper came with a small fan to push the air down into the tank areas. Same could be done with a 5ther. Actually might want that rather than depend on the furnace to blow the air around.

Yes, The Canadian Company "cubicminiwoodstoves.com" is the company to go to. They have 2 sizes. Also look on youtube and see people who have installed them and give all the info on their experience.

Locally I see sheep wagons with chimneys, so I can only guess they have a wood burning stove in there. A quick search finds these as one provider out there.

Best regards,
Chris

It’s not a big deal to add one. I also heat with wood. I had a small stove on my boat. There are chances that you could get burned but can’t you burn your hand if you put it on your dad cook top?
I’m not a bed wetter so I would go ahead with your plans. You know you can do it.
Merry Christmas!

Appreciate the reply prospectors, regarding the draw, how hig above the roof did you go with the chimney. I've always used the rule of "2' above - 10' away" and had good results.
