WOOD BURNING STOVE FOR HEAT

Hello to all.I need some advise on a Wood burning stove I need for heat.My bus is only 27' long so most stoves I see would literally "cook me" out !My budget is limited otherwise Navigator stove works "sardine " model certainly would be ideal.I have come across a company Fourdog stove works in St.Francis,Mn.Theyv'e been great to talk to.Thier model Twodogdx measures 11"tallx11"widex18"long seems to be a good choice for me.Especially the price of $240.00 incuding shipping.Any experienced Wood burning folk please give me advise A.S.A.P. I NEED HEAT !!!!

You might try portable wood stoves or alaskan wall tent stoves as a search item.

Re: WOOD BURNING STOVE FOR HEAT

i saw the bigger stove the better...within reason. You can always turn down the damper and the air inlet on the stove, as long as you make sure to keep your chimney clean. I think it's miserable to have a small stove that is unable to hold enough wood to keep it'self burning overnite.

I can put enough wood in my stove at home that there are still hot coals left in it after i get home from work....and i work 24 hour shifts.

Re: WOOD BURNING STOVE FOR HEAT

Heat throughout the night is key I agree. This also depends on the fuel that you are using. I've spent the night in sub-zero temps and had the same luck with a foldable stove. But, I was using a combination of wood fuels. I would use the softer hotter and faster burning pinion or pine fuel to get things up to temp and then start feeding some hard woods into it until I was ready to go to sleep, at which time I would fill it with straight black walnut and turn the damper down. This would almost always leave some coals to ignite in the morning. This does definitely depend on the moisture levels of the fuels as well as whether you can even get those hardwoods where you might live. By all means if you can fit and afford it you should shoot for cast iron for it doesn't let the heat dissipate as quickly. Just my opinion from 10,000 ft above sea level. Good luck!

Re: WOOD BURNING STOVE FOR HEAT

have you looked into any of the pellet stoves that can burn wood pelets or corn? I haven't done any research but the buzz is that they are real efficient.

Re: WOOD BURNING STOVE FOR HEAT

That thing looks perfect! The heat will have a hard time escaping the grips of the monster. Who makes that thing or is it built custom?
