Since this has switched to your home I would install a Blaze King wood stove, they are awesome in smaller rooms since you can run them slow and low with the automatic air regulator it makes burning wood a breeze. Plus they qualify for the tax credits since they burn so clean.

NO! and WhY?... A camper is not a tent, It is not a lean to....it just sounds like a really bad idea. Tiny house maybe but finding wood to burn and causing a forest fire....or having to haul wood to burn....not efficient. LPG is the way, heat, fire ring, cooking, running the jenny....come om man!!


Wow, such conviction. Regardless of the OP planning on home use.
Aside from efforts of wood gathering/hauling/cutting, I'm cornfused about the staunch disapproval of this method of heat for RV use from a theoretical standpoint, if properly installed.

Burned wood in our house for a few decades. A few years ago we switched to a Harman XXV pellet stove.
The only advantages the wood stove had for us was it was really to cheap to run and quieter. We much prefer the pellet stove.

Here is good place to research wood and pellet stoves. Hearth

One thing brother did not get when he bought his TT was the factory installed wood stove.
I lived a couple years with wood as my only heat source. A small office that was not used much in winter, put in a small wood stove. What I did not think about was how small the wood had to be cut to fit in stove. And small wood will not keep a fire very long without messing with

If you want to improve burning eficiency of a stove buy or build yourself a Rocket stove,

,caution the burning chamber will get hot enough to melt iron so should be properly insulated with material resistant to such temperatures

As a retired Petroleum Engineer and a coal miners son, I don't chop, split or burn wood, except to get the coal going, so sell the wood to others and burn good stuff for yourself.

Seriously, a sheepherder type is best. You can keep a pot of beans slowly cooking all day, while staying warm. For high tech titanium see titanium.

Others make a real sheepherder in titanium, but I would use cast iron, unless you are moving it around. If you keep the top clean, you can do pancakes without the pan, right on the stove.

Always keep the stove pipe and chimney clean.!!!

Sure. When you install it with 1 foot clearance all around, I don't see the problem neither.
