Woodstove in a van?!?!
#31
Yes I do as well as a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm. I have always had these in my house, but for some reason it's time to put it in my camper and I'm a little bit scared. I know there is not a video out there on this subject that I have not watched.

Good advice about an outside burn.
Guess I will be burning paint instead of dinner tomorrow.

Check out Moose Henderson's "MooseVilla" group on Facebook. You will have to join the group to see posts.

He has a tiny wood stove in his minivan conversion with some good pics and info in the posts and comments. He previously built a tiny house and has some good common sense.

They aren't particularly cheap, but you can take any canvas tent of size that is tall enough to stand up in and install a stove jack if you follow the directions to do it safely.

Hey, I have an article about a 1923 car with a wood stove in it on my thread under CAR called History of Auto-Camping LIfestyle.  Go to page 2, post #16 to see a pic of it.  (Click on the thumbnail)  It looks like they take down the chimney while driving.

I have a tent stove in my RV double walled metal floor and walls around it with open front, it will burn all night with hard wood damped down, spent a winter in Missoula MT and it was free heat you  need a fan to circulate the air or the floor will be cold, the only time it gets tricky is when the wind blows hard had to make a shield for pipe so it wouldn't down draft when the fire died down, other than that I love it. In phx now and gathered plenty of wood from bulk pick up.

I'm planning on using the Cubic Mini Cub model in my Ford extended. https://cubicminiwoodstoves.com/

They have wall mount, which reduces clearances needed (for a $ price). I'll let you know how it works out in a year-ish.

Justincredible just released a new video on his cubic mini install.  It looks awesome!  I can't wait to get one of these. Smile

NIfty, but when you want to "Turn down" the heat, well, you have to wait. I just toggle the switch on my heater.

No need to wait, you can just crack a door or window... that does a great job at cooling things down fast. Wink
