Hi! I am late to your build here, but that actually works in my favor a bit. I too, have a wood stove to be installed in my smaller bus, and we have debated the through-the-roof or out-the-window options for the flue. Going with the roof option to facilitate draw, but now my next question is: how do the stove and chimney fare during travel? Do you have some sort of routine for prepping them for travel, or is your bus stationary?

I'm going to take that vent fan idea and apply it to another venue -- inside heat! I have overhead A/C ducting, but I'm going to remove the A/C. I'll put the vent fan on one end and blow the top cabin heat throughout.

We remove the 18" chimney section on the roof and cover with a frying pan (handle removed) that has 3 springs attached to it, roof has 3 eye bolts JB welded for the springs to attach. Chimney section stores in a box under the bed. Our stove gets hot sometimes, didn't like the idea of going through a window, those horizontal section get really hot.
