You should not rely on just an open window


I wouldnít count myself as an old timer, but I specifically researched getting an 5er that would do well in cold and hot and the last thing I would consider is that itís to airtight. Mine and everyone Iíve talked to leaks air at every opening around windows, doors, etc.

I am not quite sure any insurance company would approve of the wood burner whether installed properly or not.I have never in the 15 yrs. I have been traveling ever seen any RV come from the factory with one installed in it. Now don*t get me wrong, i am not for or against it but *not for me*. In two of my motor homes i have had electric fire places and work great, no mess no fuss hit a button and the heat is on.

Good point baranski37. We travel in an Arctic Fox which we believe is a superior fiver and there are "air intake" deficiencies that can be detected. Yet, there"s still not much of a problem in cracking a window if fresh air is needed.

I came across an ad for a trailer that comes with a wood burning/pellet stove. They might discuss your ideas. Dunno. www.westernrangecamp.com. (435).462.5300. Page 14 of their online catalog.
