I put a cubic mini in a 37 foot sailboat. works if you can feed it dry hard wood every 30 minutes. and you sit in front of it. Over all it would not be a good single heat source. I'm looking for any good wood stoves for a 38 foot bus. I'm hoping to find something with some burn time so i don't have to wake up in the middle of the night, but also won't get burned out with to much heat. I don't want to go to small becuase even though i insulated I still have most of the original windows. I think that they are going to be cold and drafty this winter. Have you found a stove that works?

I had been looking at the larger cubicmini but then starting looking at importing a stove from england. This is the current one im considering.

Saltfire ST1 Wood burning stove with liner kit options | eBay

Significanlty larger than the mini but still not huge.

Dimensions are 19.5 h x 17w x 12 deep. just over a 100lbs

That st-1 is a nice looking little stove. It seems like it would be a pretty decent size for a bus. I don't understand why we can import a small wood stove from England for almost literally half the price of a domestically produced tiny stove... If I ever have 500 bucks to blow on a new stove I may just get one of these st-1s...

Well I tried..... I found a pretty good looking stove that I thought would be a good fit for someone who wants a little bit larger stove for $553. I went to get the link to post here and found that the price has gone up over $100... Bummer.

Well maybe it will go on sale again?

Wood Burning Stove with Storage (50-SVL17) From Summers Heat at Ace Hardware

Also, here is an inexpensive consideration. I would be very careful regarding indoor use though: Survivor Black Bear Portable Wood Stove (12-CSM) - Outdoor Fireplaces - Ace Hardware

If you check out CL or farm auctions you can find stoves a lot cheaper, stove on left I paid $100.00, stove on right $80.00

The stove by it's self I paid $80.00, sold it for $800.00

Hey everybody! For those using wood heat, I'm curious how you ran your stove pipe/chimney set up. I'm shopping stove pipe pieces right now and the cost is quickly adding up!

Side note: we plan on running ours out through a removable window panel, not a permanent structure.

...would love some ideas!

Now- I'm in a tropical climate so take my advice for what its worth.
But you really should run it straight up. Then make a removable cap for when you aren't using it or are driving. Others who have actually seen it snow will chime in with better opinions.

If you are going to run the stove pipe out the window it should be pretty easy.
Just make a metal plate ( tin/ sheet metal) to fit the window opening and run your stove pipe through the middle of it.
No need to get crazy ( and expensive) with insulated pipe.
You might want to make a bracket to keep the outside pipe from tipping. Just something light that could hook in the rain gutter and go around the pipe.
Keep it simple.
Keep it safe.
Show us pictures when you're done.

Hang onto your hats because this Skoolie cat just figured out how to post pics!

Made this wood stove out of an empty propane tank, inspired by rednic on youtube, which i was going to order from him but then tried my hand and it worked.
Ran the 3" exhsust out the window through a thin sheet of metal as mentioned above. Very simple and means i can move it if things change, mostly my mind.

The 3" stove pipe is air jet and can be ordered from http://www.regionalchimneysupply.com

I like your stove.
Can you explain to me, a complete computer illiterate, how to post pictures?
