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

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.
So, no worries about the metal plate getting hot and whatnot? Did you use regular stove pipe or chimney pipe?

You'll be fine running it out of a window. That's basically what I did, except I've skinned all my windows so it just goes up from the stove, 90s and then goes out the wall, another 90 and then up over the ridge line of the bus.

I've never had a problem with draft. I get good complete burns with seasoned wood and haven't ever had a puff-back situation. Make sure wherever you go through (window or ceiling) you use double or triple wall pipe. There are pics in my build thread.

When on the road I just pull the pipe going through the wall and external chimney, cap the hole and cap the stove and I'm off like a prom dress...

A tin sheet the size of the window opening is not likely to get hot enough to cause problems.
It will have enough surface area to stay cool.
If you wanted you could mount a short (6 inch) piece of triple wall chimney to whatever you use in your window opening, then you for sure wouldn't have any trouble.

Thanks y'all! I'm also curious, if I use double/triple wall pipe, could I put it through a piece of plywood instead of sheet metal? Is that stupid?

I would use two pieces of sheet metal with 1" of mineral/rock wool in between in place of the one window pane.
No need for double and or triple wall sleeve.

Wood is unsafe.
I used tin and it doesnt heat much at all.
I like the idea of rockboard between two sheets of metal.
