Anyway a travel trailer, may be something else.

And I think a wood burning stove more dangerous in a 17 foot trailer. Pretty small to me.

Oh, and th corn stove like the baby countryside burns, wood pellets, corn, cherry pits and apricot or something else pits.

It is a multi-fuel stove. It just don't burn wood clunks you need to cut a tree down for.

Re: Putting a Wood Burning Stove in a Trailer? Good or Bad Idea?
Yes, and unfortunately it is probably a couple thou for it. But hey, I am not putting it in a mobile trailer that is only 17 feet. I think I would put nothing there, but if I did, it be safer than a wood stove.
But fuel, yes, you have to carry some along or stop at a farm or store where they sell bags of wood pellets or bushels of corn - like a farmer perhaps or Co-op. in the Countryside - rural.

Re: Putting a Wood Burning Stove in a Trailer? Good or Bad Idea?
For a Travel Trailor the ONLY kind of wood burning stove I would consider is the type that they put into boats, particularly sailboats.

There are some real problems with ANY burning stove in a TT, but the ones engineered for boats have been designed for CLOSED spaces with poor ventilation.

Dickinson makes one that has a dual pipe inside a pipe exhaust stack that brings in fresh air though one pipe and then the outer pipe exhausts the smoke. THAT is the ONLY way I would consider a wood burner in an enclosed space such as a TT since oxygen depletion is a very serious issue (in addition to carbon monoxide).

Do NOT use any wood burner or other open flame type of item that is designed for a house or a large non-mobile trailer. Those are NOT designed to be safe inside the confines of TT's, which like boats have very little "extra" air in them due to their small size, and are relatively air tight.

CAUTION is the watchword ... but the ones designed for sailboats in particular have covered this ground fairly well.

Check out the marine boat suppliers to see what is out there for boats (West Marine etc.). btw these type of units will be more expensive than other types both because of their unique design and limited production runs but also because EVERYTHING in them is geared for the corrosive marine salt water environment (ie: metal is stainless steel or brass etc. etc.)

Thanks so much!!! I would look into a small modular but I think it maybe a good idea to have something that can be more mobile and be able to be moved quickly if need be. I live near the city.

You might want to check local DMV laws concerning travel trailer lengths on the highway. I believe 35' is about the limit most places, unless you're having a trailer moving company do it, but I could be wrong.

Would it be safe to put a small wood burning firelace or stove in a travel trailer if you have room for one? Or wouldn't it be a good idea?

It's a great idea, just make sure it's done by a pro and read up on how to work a stove in terms of creosote buildup etc.

Well we wouldn't be here if our people hadn't figured out how to stay warm for tens of thousands of years without any hair worth a damn for warmth on our bodies. Lived in boxcars fitted with woodstoves that were later modified to burn fuel oil while working on track gangs on the Alaskan Railroad. Lots of sub-zero times. Keep it away from the walls and sheilded with sheet metal underneath and through the roof. I would build a small mud room off your entrence way and put it there once you are "located", as wood is messy.

Don't be an idiot. I knew a guy years ago who did that. His rig burnt to the ground in about two minutes.

For a woodstove, you have to maintain three feet of clearance to anything combustible.

In my two axle travel or camper trailer is an old fuel oil stove that has been converted to propane. The propane goes into a burner underneath a spread out evenly volcanic rock. Air to help the stove run properly comes from outside. The stove has a forced downdraft into a below the floor ductwork that comes up through a grate in the back bedroom. The stove classifies as a cabinet stove, burning area is perhaps three gallons in size. I'll have to look to see if it has a name plate. There is a now unused fuel flask on back of the stove that fed a pool of burning oil in the stove. My flue pipe goes straight up and is four inches wide. Since I burn propane, I have no creosote problems. The same bottle of propane also runs the refrigerator and thefour burner cookstove. The trailer model is Yellowstone and was built in the 1970's, maybe earlier. I think it is three tons in weight and I pull it into place with my dumptruck. Something like twenty feet long.

I also installed the smallest five-blade ceiling fan Lowes sells, in the ceiling, to help circulate the really hot air throughout the camper. Early in the morning, I generally have to shut off the stove as it is too hot in the trailer.

To be safe you have to be able to keep your hand on whatever surface is next to the stove without it feeling like it is cooking.

Go to some on-line sites for wood-burning stoves and see what they say about putting them in trailers.

[link to www.consumerreports.org]

My getaway cabin is a little park-model single-wide; I would no more put a woodburning stove in that than I'd play Russian roulette with a loaded gun.

But it's your call.
