Wood Stove

I'm still up in the air about a wood stove for heat. The cons I see are, needing a second fuel, takes up space, fire concern inside, more holes in the roof, storage of wood/logs. Pros I see are, I know they are extremely efficient. Fuel is cheap if not free.
I just found one of these:

for $100. Am I a retard to not be on my way to pick it up?

My current plan for heat is a diesel heater, although I have some options on that I'm still deciding on. The wood stoves I've seen people use in buses are usually much smaller than that one!

This one is not that big, it's not like a cubic mini, but I've seen much larger in buses. Size was a determining factor, it's 29x27x16. I think it will fit either behind the drivers seat or the other side up front in the "living room.
I was not a retard, while I couldn't just jump in the truck and go with no address or communication. So I sent off an email, the only contact method,and was going to sit back and wait for a reply. Well within 5 minutes the guy called. Said he just walked through the door and checked the computer and saw my reply. I asked if I could Paypal him the money to make sure the deal was closed. He said no need, he hadn't gotten any other response and that it was mine when I wanted to come for it. Well deals like this don't come around often, so I told him I was available now and could be there in a hour. I'm back home and own a wood bringing stove. These larger stoves can be dual heater and stove for boiling.

Every other day or so I cruise CL for stoves, buses, salvage RV. Happened upon this one today, was close to me (37m), so I jumped.

Nice score there, might keep you from freezing some time when you are lost.

I'm already lost but haven't finished building. Scored my stove for 50 bucks, no glass in door, but has a catalytic converter. I think yours does too.
