I've done my test. I ran the oven on high while I boiled water.

The oven door of course does get hot, just like any other oven. The sides stayed cool to the touch and only a small area in the back felt warm. The bottom has rubber feet about 3/4 inch tall, the table below was still cool to the touch after running the oven.

The warm area on the back doesn't worry me as the propane regulator sticks out around 5 inches from the back of the unit.

I don't see any reason to be concerned about it getting hot.

Details on your stove should indicate the required air space between the unit and walls. It's usually only an inch or so.

The manual clearly says don't use it indoors, in a boat, or in an RV. They also specify having a foot of clearance on the rear and sides.

Of course we're all using them in our buses, we understand the need for ventilation, and we all have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, right?

Well there ya go, that's why I say check the details on your unit before listening to me. I run a dual 6" burner in my home for the last 2 years to heat since the heat pump went down and didn't have the money to fix it. I see no more ill effects from it than what would-be emitted from a gas range in your home.
