Installed a wood stove in my RV to beat the high heating costs with propane. AMA.
Picked out this cubic mini Grizzly stove. Made in Canada and on sale this summer, super happy with the stove so far. Heavy duty and it drafts very well. Been burning Doug fir and it kicks out the heat.

Can’t get an overnight burn, but at least it starts up quick in the morning.

I give this stove a 5* rating. I think it’s gonna be a cold winter, so if you live in a trailer, bus or small cabin think about adding a small wood stove.

Nice little stove.
Don't try driving with it lit or you will learn about backdrafting.

Just be sure to shield the area the stove is next to with air-spaced metal. Wood subjected to prolonged heating can become pyrophoric, and its ignition temperature can get as low as 150°F in time. Everything will seem fine, then one night the wood starts burning in the wall.

Have you tried burning log rounds? They usually last longer, burn a bit cooler but that usually ok at night.

Not yet. I've been burning scrap dimensional lumber we throw away at work. There's probably better stuff than Doug fir, but that's what we have around here, and of course the price is right.

Yeah I've been experimenting with the front and back dampers. I can get about 5 and a half hours burn. I think my wood isn't the best heat source to get the extended burn times. It's a soft wood.

I dunno about 5 bucks a week, but it looks good for a grid down or occasional stove. Might be too thin skinned in the ammo box and the gutter flu for long term use? He should use double wall pipe going straight up the roof, that chimney outlet under the eve is concerning.

I think your right, 5 bucks in cooking oil ain't gonna heat a lot of space for 1 week. I'm burning 1.5 board feed of dry Fir each night now and it's toasty in my trailer, its not getting very cold yet.

It's also not up to any code. Lot of issues. Cool design but needs a lot of work to be safe.

Unless this kid lives on a VERY mild climate, he doesn't heat an entire house with that heater, and definately not for $5/week. It's a great idea for a little supplemental heat (aka space heater), it's just not going to be a primary heat source for even a studio size apartment when temps dip into the 30's or even lower.

Re: Installed a wood stove in my RV to beat the high heating costs with propane. AMA.
If I had a campervan, I would love a wood stove in it. I have a camper car and closest I get to that is a paraffin lamp :)

I do have an army tent with a titanium wood stove mind. Will be using that set up during Tabernacles next month.

My dream home would be some woodland and a camper parked upon it with a set up like yours op.
But as it stands, the world is changing and exodus is upon us. I am blessed to live in a wee cheap bothy with open fire, in some very nice grounds with a car camper and hot tent for adventures (for now)

Soon be just me and tent in rucksack however, in God's hands.
