Re: I HAVE A SMALL (27 FOOT)BUS TO HEAT

Yup, that thing will heat your bus, no problem. Just be safe -- secure it well, install some heat shielding between it & nearby walls, and provide outside combustion air via an open window or vent. This is a well-done subject, so using the search function to look at previous discussions will give you a lot of info.

Lastly, typing in ALL CAPS makes your message less fun to read.

Hope this helps, and welcome to the site

You might research foldable stoves. While they are not bomber they will haet your bus depending on what insulation work you've done. The best part is they can be easily stowed away when its not cold and they don't weigh a ton. Alaska stoves is another Idea. Some of the foldable stoves are actually made to cook over as well with a hot plate area on top. These stoves also don't require more that a minimal stove pipe diameter. Every inch counts in a shorty.
