how about a corn stove? easy fuel sources, exhaust temps much lower (less fire hazard), easy to vent, easy installation!

That's what I was thinking, too. A corn or wood pellet stove is supposed to be easy to vent with lower exhaust temps.

The main problem as I see it is that they are too big, too expensive, and made to stand on the floor instead of in a cabinet.

Seems to me someone could make a small RV-friendly corn or pellet stove that mounts in a cabinet, looks like a fireplace, and runs from 12 volts.

I think there might be a market, but personally don't have any wall or cabinet space to put one in. My 32' Winnebago doesn't have any space for one, and I don't think a pellet/corn instead of LP forced air furnace is the answer.

Yeah buddy! Called job security when I was still on the job.

OK, I found it.

I found this motorhome on eBay, and it is absolutely amazing. I love it.

I think your friend should go with the fake fireplace; it would be a lot safer. Heck, all he would have to do is press the remote and wham.

Friend of mine asked if it would be possible to put a wood burning stove in an RV. Told him I never heard of it. Maybe someone here would know something.
Also told him between burning down his RV or croaking from carbon monoxide poisoning, it sounds like a hard way to heat the RV.


Absolutely! With some duct tape, scrap metal, and the ever-present blue tarp, you can do anything!

Great idea. I'm going to look at putting one in the PUP.

In our rv I am going to put the wood burning stove right next to the hot tub. The only problem is that I will have to move the pool table over a little bit.



This was the same question my brother asked me when he first laid eyes on my Class B motor Home.

He actually asked, (straight faced) Hey, where's your fire place? (Yeah, funny guy my brother!)

My answer; I'll just move the Sauna, Hot tub and pool table up to the attic to make room or down to the basement when the pool cleaning girl is finished down there!!! (Guess sarcasm runs deep huh!!!)

Guess what?

Inflatable Saunas, Hot Tubs, Home theater screens and small pool tables are available now for travel.

you can even bring along a small stove and set it all up in a side tent or Florida room.

Man! you gotta love camping, RVing and mans' ingenuity when it comes to bringing your toys and stuff with you.


TO THE OP

Hope it works out for him. Since you say it will be stationary, set up smoke alarms and fire fighting gear, then go for it.


P.S. watch out for those trying to get your friend to sign over his Life Insurance to them!!!

P.P.S. For a small nominal fee, tell your friend I can be added to his policy as a beneficiary.

A friend of mine put a WB stove in his TT. I thought he was joking when he said he did it.

I couldn't believe it until I saw it.

And I thought I was a redneck.

I think a small (real small) direct vent pellet stove would be cool in my 5th wheel. I already looked around and no one makes one small enough.

My thoughts exactly. Seems to me there would be a market for a midget pellet or corn stove, but I cannot find any such product right now. It should work from batteries or 12volts too.
